Professor Kammen Weighs in - Summer ice melt in the Arctic sets yet another record

September, 2012
Marketplace - World News

Five years ago, Arctic sea ice shrank to a new low. Now, even that record’s been shattered; the ice pack now is 18 percent smaller. That’s a difference the size of Texas.

“We are now in uncharted territory,” says Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado, Boulder. “While we’ve long known that as the planet warms up, changes would be seen first and be most pronounced in the Arctic, few of us were prepared for how rapidly the changes would actually occur.”

The downward plunge in ice mirrors a separate chart trending up: the prospects of an ice-free Arctic waterway for the shipping industry. For now, steaming across the roof of the world remains experimental: 34 ships made the trek last year, carrying more than 800,000 tons of fish, minerals and gas. This year’s totals stand to surpass that.

“Renovables están creciendo” - "Renewables Are Growing" (Espanol / Spanish)

August, 2012
La Prensa

Asimple vista no parece un científico dedicado a las energías renovables. Su sencillez y sonrisa tampoco delatan la trascendencia de su trabajo. Pero Daniel M. Kammen recibió el Premio Nobel de la Paz en el 2007, por su trabajo contra los efectos del cambio climático.

 

“Solo son dos personas que van a Estocolmo para recibir el premio, yo solo era uno de miles que lo recibieron”, se adelanta para aclarar. Aún así, es asesor del gobierno de los Estados Unidos y del Banco Mundial en temas relacionados con el calentamiento global, y el primer disertante en energía limpia de la Alianza de Energía y Clima para las Américas (AECA).

 

Antes de la conferencia magistral que dictará en Managua, recibió a LA PRENSA para hablar un poco de su visita y la lucha contra los efectos del cambio climático.

Coal Power Loses Its Luster in India as Costs Rise

July, 2012
National Geographic

Along India's narrow coastal belt of Mundra in Gujarat State, 500 miles (805 kilometers) northwest of Mumbai, several coal-fired power plants generate electricity so cheaply that authorities for the most part have overlooked damage to fishing and grazing, and harm to the vulnerable mangrove ecosystem.

It is here that Tata, India's giant conglomerate and largest private electric utility, has been building what it hopes will be one of the largest coal power plants in the world, the 4,000-megawatt Tata Mundra. It is one of nine such "ultra-mega" plants being built across India.
