Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

Australia Lags on Renewables as China Races Ahead

Sydney. Australia is falling behind China and the United States in tackling climate change, with new investment in renewable energy falling by 70 percent, a study released on Monday said.

The independent Climate Council report found that while Australia had high per capita carbon emissions, it had moved from being a leader to a laggard in terms of one of the most common means of combating climate change — renewable energy.

“The future of Australia’s renewable energy industry remains highly uncertain due to a lack of clear federal government renewable energy policy,” said the report, titled Lagging Behind: Australia and the Global Response to Climate Change.

“Consequently investment in renewable energy in 2014 has dropped by 70 percent compared with the previous year.”

Since coming to power last year, conservative Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has scrapped a tax on carbon emissions and defended the use of coal as crucial to Australia’s prosperity.

Meanwhile the largest emitters of greenhouse gases, China and the United States, are leading the way in terms of developing and investing in renewable energy, while other nations were increasingly embracing carbon pricing schemes, the report said.

“We’ve had a loss of 70 percent of new investment in renewable energy in this country, and when you compare that with the US and China, which are powering ahead — China particularly at record levels — it’s a pretty sorry state of affairs,” the council’s Tim Flannery said.

Flannery added that uncertainty about the Australian government’s position on renewables was resulting in investment heading overseas.

“The big international companies are just looking across-the-board and saying ‘there’s a favorable environment here in Texas or there in Europe or China, we’ll put our money there’,” he told the ABC.

Australia’s climate action is in the spotlight ahead of this weekend’s Group of 20 leaders summit in Brisbane, with Canberra resisting pressure to put the item on the agenda.

Australia plans to cut emissions to 5 percent below 2000 levels by 2020, and is establishing a A$2.55 billion ($2.25 billion) Emissions Reduction Fund to give polluters financial incentives to reduce emissions to help meet the target.

But in a second report released on Monday, the independent Climate Institute said changing circumstances and growing scientific evidence meant that Australia needed to ramp up its ambitions and aim to reduce new emissions by 40 percent of 2000 levels by 2025.

“Australian politics is fixated on 2020 but the world is now increasingly looking beyond 2020,” said deputy chief executive Erwin Jackson.
