Unearthed essay on alien life reveals Churchill the scientist

FILE PHOTO: An alien world just two-thirds the size of Earth - one of the smallest on record - detected by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope is seen in this NASA artist's illustrationBy Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - A newly unearthed essay by Winston Churchill shows Britain's wartime leader was uncannily prescient about the possibility of alien life on planets orbiting stars other than the Sun. The 11-page article was drafted on the eve of World War Two in 1939 and updated in the 1950s, decades before astronomers discovered the first extrasolar planets in the 1990s. The hunt for life on other worlds has taken off in the last 20 years as observations have suggested the Milky Way alone may contain more than a billion Earth-size planets that could be habitable. Churchill was already thinking along similar lines nearly 80 years ago, writing that "with hundreds of thousands of nebulae, each containing thousands of millions of suns, the odds are enormous that there must be immense numbers which possess planets whose circumstances would not render life impossible".

Fossils show quick rebound of life after ancient mass extinction

Handout of an artist's depiction of the diversified and complex Early Triassic marine ecosystem of southeastern IdahoBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Fossils including sharks, sea reptiles and squid-like creatures dug up in Idaho reveal a marine ecosystem thriving relatively soon after Earth's worst mass extinction, contradicting the long-held notion life was slow to recover from the calamity. Scientists on Wednesday described the surprising fossil discovery showing creatures flourishing in the aftermath of the worldwide die-off at the end of the Permian Period about 252 million years ago that erased roughly 90 percent of species.

India launches record 104 satellites at one go

People watch as India's PSLV-C37 carrying 104 satellites in a single mission lifts off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in SriharikotaIndia successfully launched 104 satellites in a single mission on Wednesday, setting what its space agency says is a world record of launching the most satellites at one go. Of the 104, 101 are foreign satellites to serve international customers as the South Asian nation seeks a bigger share of the $300 billion global space industry. Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted his congratulations on the launch conducted by the state-run Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) that went off smoothly and was carried live on national TV news channels.

Fossil shows pregnant momma sea monster with developing embryo

DinocephalosaurusBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An extraordinary fossil unearthed in southwestern China shows a pregnant long-necked marine reptile that lived millions of years before the dinosaurs with its developing embryo, indicating this creature gave birth to live babies rather than laying eggs. Scientists on Tuesday said the fossil of the unusual fish-eating reptile called Dinocephalosaurus, which lived about 245 million years ago during the Triassic Period, changes the understanding of the evolution of vertebrate reproductive systems. Dinocephalosaurus is the first member of a broad vertebrate group called archosauromorphs that includes birds, crocodilians, dinosaurs and extinct flying reptiles known as pterosaurs known to give birth this way, paleontologist Jun Liu of China's Hefei University of Technology said.

U.S. experts soften on DNA editing of human eggs, sperm, embryos

A file photo of a DNA double helix in an undated artist's illustration released by the National Human Genome Research Institute to ReutersBy Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - Powerful gene editing tools may one day be used on human embryos, eggs and sperm to remove genes that cause inherited diseases, according to a report by U.S. scientists and ethicists released on Tuesday. The report from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the National Academy of Medicine said scientific advances make gene editing in human reproductive cells "a realistic possibility that deserves serious consideration.? The statement signals a softening in approach over the use of the technology known as CRISPR-Cas9 that has opened up new frontiers in genetic medicine because of its ability to modify genes quickly and efficiently. In December 2015, scientists and ethicists at an international meeting held at the NAS in Washington said it would be "irresponsible" to use gene editing technology in human embryos for therapeutic purposes, such as to correct genetic diseases, until safety and efficacy issues are resolved.

The New York Renewable Portfolio Standard

A Clean, Green Tomorrow Starts Today

enewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) is a policy that seeks to increase the proportion of renewable electricity used by retail customers. New York has adopted an aggressive goal of obtaining 30 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2015 – referred to as 30 x15.
RPS energy targets for the 30 percent goal fall into three groups:

    * Main Tier or Large Scale Generators - Large scaled generators that sell power to the wholesale grid
    * Customer-Sited Tier - Small scaled generators such as a photovoltaic (PV) system on a residence
    * Other Market Activities - Individuals and businesses that choose to pay a premium on their electricity bill to support renewable energy and state agencies that are subject to renewable energy purchasing requirements through similar policies.

NYSERDA is responsible for administering the Main Tier and the Customer Sited Tier aspects of the program.

Main Tier/Large Scale Generators

As of March 2010, NYSERDA has completed five competitive Main Tier solicitations which have resulted in thirty-nine large-scale electricity generators participating in the RPS. Of these 39, one facility had its contract expire January 31, 2010. Of the 38 remaining facilities, thirty seven are located in New York and one is located in Quebec. These 38 facilities are under contract to provide a combined 4,276,140 MWh of renewable energy per year, from approximately 1,532 MW of new renewable capacity. These include three fossil fuel plants that will use biomass as a fuel source, two new 100 percent biomass-fueled facilities, one landfill biogas operation, nineteen hydroelectric station upgrades, and fourteen wind farms. Of the 38 new renewable electric generating facilities with active contracts, 26 are now operating, 4 are under construction, and the 8 selected under the fifth solicitation (RFP 1851) are under development.

For a generating facility to be eligible for Main Tier program procurements, it must meet the generation type and fuel source eligibility requirements as defined and clarified by the PSC in its various orders. The PSC orders issued for Case 03-E-0188 are the controlling authority for all determinations of eligibility of projects participating in the NYS RPS.
Customer-Sited Tier

he RPS program supports active open-enrollment incentive programs for photovoltaics (PV), anaerobic digester gas (ADG) systems at farms and waste-water treatment facilities, fuel cells and small wind turbines.  These “behind-the-meter” renewable systems are supported through the following initiatives.

Customer-Sited Tier

The RPS program supports active open-enrollment incentive programs for photovoltaics (PV), anaerobic digester gas (ADG) systems at farms and waste-water treatment facilities, fuel cells and small wind turbines.  These “behind-the-meter” renewable systems are supported through the following initiatives:

      Customers interested in installing PV or small wind can work with one of NYSERDA's eligible installers through Power...Naturally. Incentives are available through the solar and wind installers.
    * Up to $1 million per anaerobic digester was available through PON 1146.
    * Up to $1 million per fuel cell system was available through PON 1150.

As of April 2010, the Public Service Commission established new CST program goals for the previously approved CST technologies (photovoltaic; fuel cell, anaerobic gas-to-electric digester technologies, and on- site wind installations), authorized a new CST program aimed at encouraging additional customer-sited installations in the downstate region (NYISO Zones G, H, I and J), and authorized a new CST program focused solely on the deployment of solar thermal energy systems.  The Commission also established guidance on program implementation, capacity and energy targets, authorized incentive funding of $429 million, and directed NYSERDA to  develop a new Customer-Sited Tier Operating Plan (“2010 CST Plan”). NYSERDA, in consultation with the DPS, established the 2010 CST Plan which sets forth general program specifications, capacity and generation targets, and associated budgets. The 2010 CST Plan was approved on June 29, 2010.
