For those of us on the Environment America clean energy team, the solar eclipse is a powerful reminder of the progress solar energy has made, and how much further we need to go. When the last solar eclipse occurred 38 years ago, solar panels were niche products, and electricity generated from the sun made up a negligible piece of our electrical grid.
Ten short years ago, solar panels were mere novelties. Today, they’re a dominant force in America’s energy landscape, and poised for even more growth in the years ahead. Coupled with huge advances in wind energy, battery storage, electric vehicles and energy efficiency, it’s getting clearer than ever that moving to a future powered entirely by clean, renewable energy is as feasible at it is necessary.
Today, Representatives Jared Polis (CO), Jared Huffman (CA), Raul Grijalva (AZ) and Pramila Jayapal (WA) introduced a bill to phase out fossil fuels and completely replace them with clean, renewable energy by 2050.
A new analysis by Environment America shows lead in the water at 55 percent of schools’ faucets and fountains tested in Bergen County, New Jersey. The group’s finding is based on data from all county school districts that made complete testing results publicly available by the state’s testing deadline, last Thursday. Advocates and public health experts renewed their calls for swift action to “get the lead out” of schools drinking water in New Jersey and across the country.
