Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-05 16:07:314714429109CC G+

Markos Giannopoulos3,766197 interesting People // If you're into technology, the Web, photography and science, here's a circle to consider. Methodology: out of 3200 people that I follow, using +Circloscope I ordered them according to relevance score (calculated by Google depending on whose posts I engage the most) and filtered for a value over 30, then filtered for whether they are active (when was their last post) and finally filtered by whether they were in my "must read" circles. Voila! I hope you find it interesting :) #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  #circlesharing  2013-05-26 09:51:2119713412CC G+

The $1.3 million, 18-month project will deploy the Altaeros Buoyant Airborne Turbine (or BAT, pictured) at a height of 1,000 feet above the ground. It’s the first long-term, commercial-scale demonstration of an airborne wind turbine. Some specifics, from Altaeros:

World's highest wind turbine

The helium-filled, inflatable (can-shaped) shell lifts the turbine up to high altitudes where it passively aligns with winds that are stronger and more consistent than those reached by traditional tower-mounted turbines. 

The turbine itself is a lightweight, conventional three-blade, horizontal axis system that’s fixed within the shell.

Emergency pollution measures: China steps up development of thorium nuclear

China's central government has accelerated the development of a novel form of nuclear reactor that runs on thorium fuel rather than on uranium, as part of Premier Li Keqiang's recently declared "war on pollution," according to the South China Morning Post.

Solar Thermal Technology Poses Challenges for Drought-Stricken California

"The drawbacks are that solar thermal plants generate large amounts of waste heat, and they consume a lot of water for cooling, which is usually done by evaporating water. Solar thermal plants can consume twice as much water as fossil fuel power plants, and one recently proposed solar thermal project would have consumed about 500 million gallons of water a year."

"Solar Energy Is Heading to Mainstream in the United States"

Shayle Kann, Vice President of Research at GTM, wanted to assess whether solar is becoming mainstream. So Kann devised a checklist to help answer the question, At what point does solar become mainstream in US? And how close are we? His conclusions:

1. Solar must be a primary source of new electric capacity in the U.S.
2. Solar must be cost-competitive without reliance on fickle incentives.
3. Solar must be taken seriously by the electricity industry.

(No mention of the minor issue of dispatchability.)

World Nuclear Energy Data, 2013. Definitive guide to usage and trends:

This edition of the “Brown Book” contains official information provided by OECD member country governments on nuclear energy, including projections of total and nuclear electricity generating capacities 
to 2035 and short narrative country reports providing updates of national nuclear energy programmes. Nuclear safety was further strengthened in 2012 following safety reviews prompted by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. Nuclear projects also advanced, with the exception of Japan where the role of nuclear power remains uncertain. Total electricity generation and nuclear-generated electricity in the OECD area declined between 2011 and 2012 by 0.1% and 5.2% respectively.

The share of electricity production from nuclear power plants also decreased from 19.9% in 2011 to 18.9% in 2012. This decline reflects the permanent shutdown of three reactors that had reached the end of their operational lifetime (two in the United Kingdom and one in Canada), operational issues at some facilities and suspended operation at all but two reactors in Japan. Record electricity production at nuclear power plants in the Czech Republic and Hungary, combined with increased production in Canada, France, Spain and Sweden balanced, to some extent, declining production 
in Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States___

This paper examines the distributional impacts of the wind production tax credit (PTC). The obvious difficulty of this examination is the fact that over the past 10 years (the life of the PTC) some eligible wind facilities have elected to take the investment tax credit (ITC) and the Section 1603 grant program instead of the PTC. As we explain below, this does not change the distributional nature of federal wind subsidies, but merely the timing. 
 For the purposes of this paper, we assume that all wind production built over the last 10 years in the United States elected to take the PTC. We call this the proxy PTC to differentiate this metric from the actual PTC. The proxy PTC is a one-year snapshot based on state-level wind generation data for 2012.

Various promoters maintain the cost of wind energy is competitive with other sources of energy. As shown below, this is not the case. They often point to power purchase agreements, PPAs, between wind turbine owners and utilities to sell at 5 to 6 c/kWh as proof of market price parity.
 
However, costs are not the same as prices. Energy costs have to do with the unsubsidized cost of producing energy. Pricing that energy is greatly influenced by the level of subsidies. If that were not the case, wind turbine owners would not be fighting so hard for various subsidies, such as extending the 2.3 c/kWh production tax credit; its pre-tax value is about 3.4 c/kWh, depending on tax rates. This credit is not trivial, as the US average grid price is about 5 c/kWh.

Then some geniuses came along and broke with tradition – in a rational yet revolutionary way that only seemed self-evident after the fact. They fractured the existing model and shifted the paradigm.

In a hard-hitting article published in the Wall Street Journal, he reported the findings of a Colorado energy research study, which earlier this year concluded that the industrial wind technology it sampled in the regions of Colorado and Texas neither reduced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the production of electricity nor rolled back consumption of fossil fuels.

GENEVA - One reason the nuclear industry is not moving rapidly to superior and safer technologies including thorium fuel is that its entrenched value chain moans out for more of the same old uranium and for large, traditional reactors.

That could be starting to change, as one of the world’s biggest reactor companies, Areva, publicly declared an interest in thorium.

Environmentalists agree that global warming is a threat to ecosystems and humans, but many oppose nuclear power and believe that new forms of renewable energy will be able to power the world within the next few decades.

That isn't realistic, the letter said.

"Those energy sources cannot scale up fast enough" to deliver the amount of cheap and reliable power the world needs, and "with the planet warming and carbon dioxide emissions rising faster than ever, we cannot afford to turn away from any technology" that has the potential to reduce greenhouse gases.

The letter signers are James Hansen, a former top NASA scientist; Ken Caldeira, of the Carnegie Institution; Kerry Emanuel, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and Tom Wigley, of the University of Adelaide in Australia.

Except in the U.S. and perhaps Japan, Germany and Italy, the nuclear industry is poised to grow steadily. At last count there were about 430 reactors operating worldwide and about 70 reactors under construction or ready to break ground.  The latter number includes last week’s announcement by UK Prime Minister David Cameron about plans for two new conventional, uranium-fueled nuclear reactors on a coastline about 200 kilometers west of London.

Author Kim Chandler McDonald will be reading excerpts from her new book Innovation: How Innovators Think, Act and Change Our World followed by a Q&A session via a global, Google Hangout (GOH) On Air session.

Innovation drives change, culturally, socially and economically and touches all our lives as individuals, companies and society. Kim’s exclusive interviews with 100+ international thought leaders illustrates the mindset of the global pioneers - in fields as diverse as government and social policy, business and technology, the arts and advertising to media, medicine and more -  who are changing the world we live in.

Her collection of essays extends a bridge between an array of  of ideas, insights and innovational thinking that looks to inspire a creative, innovative spark in readers.  Her reading selection, chosen specifically for Changefest, looks at the subject of the ‘State of a Nation’s Innovation’ as it is reflected in a  government’s commitment to the social welfare and empowerment of its citizens.”

The final GHO  segment is reserved for a Q&A. This session will look at innovation in general and, specifically, and why an Innovation Knowledge Management Platform is imperative to building bridges between businesses, governments, NGOs and social enterprises locally, nationally and internationally.

You can send questions for the Q&A to bookinfo@kimmic.com, post them on the Innovation: How Innovators Think, Act and Change Our World Facebook and/or Google+  pages or Tweet them with hashtag #innovationinterviews.___

China’s smog is so bad it shut down an entire city

Earlier this week, dangerous levels of smog practically shut down Harbin, a major city in China’s northeast region as cities in the northern part of the country began turning on heating systems powered by coal. Research this year showed that the smog caused mainly by the burning of coal is causing drastic reduction in life span for people living in the region.

The EPA has initiated developing new regulations to substantially reduce new and possibly existing Coal Power Plants’ carbon emissions.  In a recent TEC Post the impacts of shutting down all U.S. Coal Power (Part 1) were analyzed based on displacing this critical generation capacity with state-of-art Natural Gas Power.  While displacing all Coal Power with lower carbon and cost Natural Gas could reduce total U.S. carbon emissions by almost1.2 Billion Metric Tons per year (MT/yr.) in 2040, such a strategy would substantially increase U.S. natural gas consumption well above domestic production levels within a few years.  This would increase U.S. natural gas imports to new historic highs, which would adversely impact natural gas related energy market prices and reduce U.S. energy security.
