Rising Phoenix Helps Ashland Become First City in Southern Oregon to Use Homegrown Fuel

Ashland Becomes First City in Southern Oregon to Use Homegrown Fuel



By switching to B5 biodiesel in June, the City of Ashland became Southern Oregon’s largest municipal fleet running on domestic biodiesel blends. By replacing 5% of their 38,000-gallon annual diesel usage with a domestic biodegradable fuel, they save 30,000 pounds of greenhouse gasses from Rogue Valley skies. In a year, that’s like taking 3 of their cars off the road, or importing 45 less barrels of foreign oil.… Continue

Maybe they're putting us on...



I was a County Commissioner once. I let with a pretty high opinion of local government, or at least its potential to serve people the way they want to be served. So I wince every time I hear "Government" slammed as some kind of lumbering monster, with no sense that the process is very different, with very different accessibility for citizens who care, at the national,… Continue

Three New Studies Confirm Volcanism Is Melting West Antarctic Glaciers, Not Global Warming | Plate climatology

United States Spend Ten Times More On Fossil Fuel Subsidies Than Education | Forbes

Despite nations worldwide committing to a reduction in carbon emissions and implementing renewable energy through the Paris Agreement, the IMF’s findings expose how fossil fuels continue to receive huge amounts of taxpayer funding. The report explains that fossil fuels account for 85% of all global subsidies and that they remain largely attached to domestic policy. Had nations reduced subsidies in a way to create efficient fossil fuel pricing in 2015, the International Monetary Fund believes that it “would have lowered global carbon emissions by 28 percent and fossil fuel air pollution deaths by 46 percent, and increased government revenue by 3.8 percent of GDP.”
