  • Greenpeace’s Recipe for an Energy Revolution in Chile

    Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

    Greenpeace Chile recently presented to the government the Chilean version of its Energy [R]evolution scenario. To refresh memories, in the past GP [in cooperation with the European Renewable Energy Council (EREC)] released a report, Global Energy [R]evolution, to show, through scenarios (both global and regional), that a global energy revolution is technically and economically feasible […]

    Monday, December 15th, 2008

    While the idea of creating a “green economy” with “green jobs” has been around quite a while, it really started to gain serious consideration as the climate change debate heated up,  and recently moved front-and-center during the US presidential elections and the debates about how best to respond to the global financial crisis (here, here, […]

I was fully occupied with work day-and-night on the final stages of the total revamp and re-launch of my main site, temasactuales.com Although work continues on the Spanish and Portuguese versions (coming soon!), the burden has lightened enough […]

    A Sustainable Biofuels Policy for Chile?

    Monday, March 19th, 2007

    I scribbled some notes on this story when the report was first released in late January.

Instead she appears to be holding off, […]

    A Bright Future for Solar in LAC?

    Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

    Seeking Enlightenment 
    In a prior entry I wrote about the special maps indicating solar and wind power generation potential among Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) nations.  But knowing what average daily radiation rates in any given area is only part of the equation.  I've been on the lookout for quite awhile for a study that would […]

    “Up in Smoke” PostScript: Related Materials on Climate Change and LAC

    Saturday, September 30th, 2006

    It’s been suggested to me to post some recommendations for follow-up reading and resources related to the review I did on the “Up in Smoke” report on probable impact of global climate change on Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC).
