April 19 News: on track for 800k to 1M electric by 2015; Lithium-ion car battery projects 50% price drop by


U.S. President Obama s goal to have than 1 million plug-in cars on U.S. roadways by is well on its way to being completed, to Assistant Energy Secretary Sandalow .

Sandalow s statement as delays of the Nissan Leaf and concerns have fanned of how the commercial viability of electric Pike Research estimates that electric vehicle supply in will be closer to 841,000 Sandalow made the statements at a with the Society of Automotive in Detroit today.

The government a  report saying its the electric car in the U.S. will total 1.2 cars by conservative estimates for The report doesn t include key like Toyota, which has the Prius planned for 2012, and Coda, which says it to sell an ambitious 14,000 of its sedans in its first year of

But the report projects supply of the Leaf in the U.S. this to be 25,000 cars. By the DOE report s 300,000 of the expected 1.2 million cars in 2015 will be Leafs, meaning the government Leafs to account for one in every electric cars available by has to date only brought 453 vehicles stateside.

 The has about 20,000 reservations, and 40 percent of those reservations become purchases. And Nissan seems to a setback in the Leaf s production time it turns around ” it s a glitch in the system or a massive that stalls the car s production .

JR:  It seems to me an 800,000 to range is more plausible to use now and let s hope it s on the high range, but of that will be dependent on out of anyone s control.

As CEO of LG Chem Prabhakar Patil is at the center of the industry s charge to develop battery-powered electric cars that be accepted by mainstream consumers. And it is a in employing Michiganders in the green

For now, Patil said, electric cars such as the Volt and Nissan Leaf support from federal for the price to be low enough to entice

But Patil is confident that by the industry will be able to cut the of lithium-ion batteries in half. The will decline as production and as the power per pound and the lifespan of the improves.

LG Chem Power, in Colorado Springs, Colo. in moved to Troy in 2005. The a subsidiary of Korea-based LG Chem, about 150 at its engineering and development in Troy.

Last year, the environmental group, accused the Charles and David Koch of a campaign to attack climate setting off extensive media of the Kochs and their company, Industries. (A Koch subsidiary is a oil refiner.) Now Greenpeace is out with an

The new report largely detail, from the advocacy s perspective, to some previously activities of the company and various financed by its owners and employees. For the report highlights donations Koch interests to the unsuccessful last year to get voters to back California s ambitious policy. Similarly, the report out Greenpeace s take on the battle the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. a of states in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast seeks to limit greenhouse

Greenpeace now has a whole section of its Web site to tracking the Koch interests. Industries itself, under media scrutiny since year s report, has started to challenge its critics and publicize the company makes for corrections to as well as to lay out the Koch brothers on various issues.

The Times has the company to ask whether it plans any response to the new Greenpeace report, and if it one, we will link to it.

THE global warming bill in the Senate last year. The new majority in the Housewants to gut carbon at the Environmental Protection Agency. Obama is reluctant even to global warming publicly.

So environmentalists believe that being argued before the Court Tuesday represents the best hope to reduce emissions.

This is not where had hoped to be when the case ,  Electric Power v. Connecticut . was in 2004. A group of states and New City sued several companies that year, that the greenhouse emissions their power plants are a nuisance because they to global warming. Climate directly harms California s New York s sea level, shipping in the Lakes and so forth, the states and so they turned to an element of law, non-statutory legal imported from England ago that allow for nuisance when one party s activity others.

A U.S. District judge curtly threw out the case, saying that were asking the judicial to settle an inherently political The states persuaded the U.S. of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit toreverse the court s ruling. arguing under ancient and recent courts have settled claims similar to those in  AEP v. .

In November 2008, an estimated 22 young people voted for Obama, turning in the third-highest of young voters ever, according to the for Information and Research on Civic and Engagement.

Nearly 40 years Sen. Gaylord Nelson had voters in mind when he April 22 as the first Earth The specific day, first National Teach-In on the Crisis of the was chosen to ensure maximum from college students, not with exams or holidays.

Earth Week, young say they plan to hold responsible for his energy and environment in 2012.

Over the weekend, than 10,000 young gathered in Washington to train in community organizing and challenge the on energy policy as part of Shift 2011.

The young activists, describing themselves as the Obama voters, heard former Vice President Al former green jobs Van Jones, and Environmental Protection Administrator Lisa Jackson, others.

Google s plowing million into what be the world s largest wind Shepherds Flat, near Oregon. It follows a $168 investment in Brightsource s Ivanpah plant in the Mojave and brings the View company s total in green tech projects to $350 million.

There are two things about Google s moves. First, this is for deployment. It s project finance, not RD.

big tech companies like LG have announced massive in green tech research, but is putting money to get real off the ground. Second, this comes from Google, not Google.org under the RE C program. expects to  make money on the big I couldn t get any specifics out of Parag clean energy public spokesperson, but it s clear this isn t a program:

Unfortunately, we can t disclose the deal or potential returns for the investment. But we certainly see renewable energy as good for the environment and a good opportunity. These projects Flat and BrightSource s Ivanpah, the others we ve invested in can have returns given the risks So the money for these investments out of Google Inc. and as you said, we to generate strong financial

It s also great way to diversity our holdings while investing in an area we think is important to support.

Kachan, who heads the clean research and consulting firm Kachan and Co. that Google could to get something like a six return on its investment, though number could vary by

Fewer greenhouse gases emitted in 2009 than any since 1995, the Environmental Agency said Monday. But the noted that overall have increased by more 7.3 percent in the last two decades.

The EPA that greenhouse gases in the United States during decreased by 6.1 percent as compared to emitted in 2008.

The reason? fuel consumption and electricity use down.

Scientists say greenhouse gas are the main contributor to climate The EPA has moved to regulate greenhouse gas but Republicans and some Democrats in are trying to block the agency s to impose climate change

The 2009 emissions represent the annual U.S. greenhouse gas since 1995. But, EPA overall emissions have by more than 7.3 percent 1990 to 2009.

The data is included in EPA s annual  gas inventory . which was released It represents EPA s most up-to-date gas emissions numbers.

Natural gas has a as the least environmentally damaging fuel, but a new study Cornell University paints a different picture. Study Robert Howarth told the BBC in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, gas shale rocks undergoing a in production in the U.S. is quite as bad [as] or worse coal .

Why? Methane, the component of natural gas, is a far powerful albeit shorter-lived gas than carbon dioxide, and gas production is leaky. For each of energy released, the emissions producing shale gas would about 20 percent more than the emissions from over a 20-year period.

is about the same amount of as coal over a 100-year

The study received criticism a variety of groups, including industry and the industry group In Depth. Even The Clean Air Force argued it was flawed in several

Meanwhile, shale gas is being as a savior by many, with  magazine proclaiming on its cover, rock could power the , and President Obama talking up gas production in a recent energy saying the potential for natural gas is .

A new discovery about the magnetic of light by University of Michigan could lead to a new way of producing power that doesn t the use of semiconductor solar cells.

The which overturns a hundred of scientific theory that the effects of light s magnetic were so weak that could be ignored, could in a cheaper way to produce solar

Traditional solar energy manufacturing solar cells need extensive semiconductor In contrast, this new process eliminate that expense by glass, which is already in bulk and wouldn t require as much processing.

The glass be fitted into lenses focus light into intensities not produced naturally and use fiber to guide it, according report from the university .

If you re the who wakes up every morning to a diet that can only be via a Wolf Blitzer situation of glowing screens and buzzing you probably suspect that you re more energy than the s you, the one who warmed herself a kerosene lamp and ate hardtack out of the barrel.

But you re wrong. Per capita, the world is using less per person than it did in 1995, reports the Journal. Yet taken as a whole, the uses more energy per than it did 20 years ago.

How is possible?

Zillions of desperately people were born the world since then, and all of have slowly gained to a bit more energy.
