Australia to invest clean energy funds in Coal

The Turnbull government will enshrine its belief in coal as an ongoing source of power generation by introducing legislation to enable the Clean Energy Finance Corporation to invest in carbon capture and storage.

The CEFC is a $10 billion taxpayer-funded loan facility established by Labor to invest in the development of renewable and clean energy sources.

Months after first flagging the move, Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg has announced the government will legislate to expand the CEFC's mandate so it can invest in carbon capture and storage technology which, if ever successfully developed, will enable emissions from coal-fired power stations to be kept out of the atmosphere. The CEFC will not be investing in other so-called clean coal technology such as the construction of a High Efficiency Low Emissions (HELE) power station

First Americans may have been Neanderthals 130,000 years ago

By Colin Barras

An extraordinary chapter has just been added to the story of the First Americans. Finds at a site in California suggest that the New World might have first been reached at least 130,000 years ago – more than 100,000 years earlier than conventionally thought.

If the evidence stacks up, the earliest people to reach the Americas may have been Neanderthals or Denisovans rather than modern humans. Researchers may have to come to terms with the fact that they have barely scratched the surface of the North American archaeological record.

“We often hear statements in the media that a new study changes everything we knew,” says Chris Stringer at the Natural History Museum in London. “If this result stands up to scrutiny, it does indeed change everything we thought we knew about the earliest human occupation of the Americas

taking offshore wind to the next level

The proposal is relatively straight-forward: build an artificial island in the middle of the North Sea to serve as a cost-saving base of operations for thousands of wind turbines, while at the same time doubling up as a hub that connects the electricity grids of countries bordering the North Sea, including the UK.

In time, more islands may be built too; daisy chained via underwater cables to create a super-sized array of wind farms tapping some of best wind resources in the world.
