Michigan’s Clean Energy Goals Less Ambitious Than Reported

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Andy Balaskovitz for Midwest Energy News:Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s statewide 30 percent clean energy goal by 2025 wouldn’t necessarily expand renewable energy at all — a realization that was slow to reach the public, according to emails released earlier this month in relation to the Flint water crisis.As first reported by ClimateWire last week, a policy brief prepared for the governor’s office suggests that the media had been misreporting Snyder’s energy plan by saying a 30 percent clean energy goal could be met with a combination of renewables and energy efficiency.“If asked: the media has finally figured out that the 30% goal by 2025 language from your energy message that made it into legislation doesn’t actually involve building any more renewables,” according to the email.Full article: Flint emails shed light on Michigan governor’s energy strategy Michigan’s Clean Energy Goals Less Ambitious Than Reportedlast_img read more

Why I live in … Ten News sports presenter Jonathan Williams loves living in Everton Park

first_imgWe live in Everton Park, which is a really central suburb for work, schools and lifestyle. It’s only an hour away from both the Gold and Sunshine Coast so it’s easy to get away on weekends. The traffic coming home on a Sunday afternoon is never fun. What do you love about your home? Where do you live and why? Both my wife and I are from the Sunshine Coast and that still has a big place in our hearts. We’re not fussy and don’t need something fancy overseas. Just a beachfront home at Sunshine Beach would do us just fine!Some of the places along that stretch of coast are just amazing and if we won the lottery that’s where we’d happily settle down. What was the best piece of property advice you were given? Our home is a really nice family home, there’s lots more I’d like to do with it, but that would interfere with the kids’ trampoline or swings or play areas. Anyone with a young family knows it’s a balance trying to reno your home and also make it child friendly. What would you change about your home? My mum and dad were very keen on Jacqui (my wife) and I entering the property market as soon as we could afford it. Their thinking was basically just get in, make the most of the government first homeowners grants (when they were available) and go from there. They were wise words and it’s been a great financial investment knowing when it does come time to sell, (hopefully) we’ll make some money.center_img We’d love to fix our outdoor living areas and also add a pool. The kids would love nothing more than a pool in summer. What is the best thing about your suburb?

Particularly our street, we have very welcoming neighbours, I mow their lawns, they’ll take the bins in if we’re away and feed the fish. We’ll often have barbecues.
