A big, clean energy industry matures at sea

ESBJERG, Denmark -- Flying 56 miles west from this port, you are greeted by a 10-story, yellow, boxlike platform rising out of the North Sea. It is called SylWin1, the connection to Europe's electric grid from one of the largest power plants ever built offshore. Beyond it, arrayed over 27 acres of ocean, are the 80 Siemens 3.6-megawatt turbines of the Dan Tysk wind farm. For Europeans, and perhaps for some Americans, this may be their energy future.


2 C temperature rise limit would fall short of safeguarding most countries -- study

The 2-degree-Celsius temperature rise limit globally accepted as a means to avoid dangerous climate change is a "mathematical aggregate" and a mere average of data collected from hundreds of climate stations around the world and thrown into climate models to forecast the effects of climate change. It fails to protect those nations most at risk, according to Petra Tschakert, a professor at Pennsylvania State University and coordinating lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Fifth Assessment Report.
