WASHINGTON, DC: Climate change threatens all industries with storms, wildfires, droughts, heat waves and rising seas, and the energy industry has no special standing. “Together, these risks can lead to power outages, increased electricity prices and increased maintenance, and capital costs – along with damaging economic, environmental, and public health consequences,” explain Debabrata Chattopadhyay, Morgan Bazilian and Mohar Chattopadhyay. “Growing evidence now suggests the entire energy supply chain, particularly power generation transmission and distribution, is vulnerable to climate change and disaster events.” Pacific Gas & Electric Company declared bankruptcy following the fierce wildfires that tore through Northern California in November, and other power companies in places as diverse as the New York metropolitan region and Bangladesh prepare. The three researchers call for a resilience-focused approach: hardening power systems, anticipating climate risks for any planning and investments, and relying on state-of-the-art technologies for adaptation. The power industry is large, complex and essential, and the writers urge equal attention on mitigation and adaptation. – YaleGlobal // Visit yaleglobal.yale.edu for the full story by Debabrata Chattopadhyay (adjunct professor at University of Queensland, Australia and current lead of the power systems planning group at the World Bank in Washington DC, Morgan Bazilian (professor of public policy and director of the Payne Institute at the Colorado School of Mines), and Mohar Chattopadhyay (with the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, GSFC/GMAO and Science System and Application Inc, and lead research scientist with SSAI specializing in satellite data assimilation and climate modeling), and follow @yaleglobal for more globalization news

Pomegranates evoke memories of foggy Northern California mornings in the 1980's when the man with the wooden fruit wagon pulled his wagon down Gunn Road. There, in a little cottage nestled among gardens and honeysuckle shrubs, lived three little girls named Janelle, Shannon and Alisa, and their tired mom and dad. The fruit vendor's back was aged and bent over by years of humble toil. Yet, it was strong, and bore his fruitful burden well. Though we enjoyed the very best fresh citrus fruit and figs from our own yard, he had one treasure we didn't. Using one of his shiny paring knives, he skillfully scored the red peel of a softball-sized pomegranate into four segments, then sliced it clean through the middle, exposing deep red jewels clustered tightly together. He smiled as he offered each of us a section of the mysterious fruit. One experience of juicy sweetness and the surprise of a crunchy seed had me hooked. Mom bought a bag of pomegranates that day. Those were simpler days. I still buy pomegranates, and when our family enjoys them I think about my sisters. Janelle has continued her journey to greener spiritual pastures where the fruit she enjoys in the company of ancestors and other departed family members most likely surpasses description. Shannon married a man who dislikes strawberries, but he does a lot of things well, and he is a wise man who loves my sister, so we ignore the strawberry thing and love him dearly anyway. The fruit she spends her time tending are her four beautiful children that I love so so much. It may just be a pomegranate and a sign that I am finally getting older, but enjoying a bowl of these red jewels of sweet and tart wonder brings to mind those days when life was so uncomplicated that my joy was wrapped up in seeing the old fruit vendor slowly pull his load of fruity jewels down Gunn Road to our little cottage nestled among fruit trees and honeysuckle shrubs. #NorthernCal#california#pomegranate#memories#sisters#fruit#carmichael#sacramento#cottage#goodolddays#foodsilove#vintagebritishdinnerware#healing#wholefoods
