Interview: Why global support for climate action is 'systematically underestimated'

"...PA, TB, FC and AF: The popular support for specific policies will depend on many details that we had to abstract from in the global survey. How effective is the policy? Is it perceived as fair? Who supports the policy in the public debate? So one cannot simply equate support in the survey with support for specific policy proposals. In a representative US sample, we do find that the general demand for more political action is strongly correlated with demand for specific climate policies, such as a carbon tax on fossil fuels, regulatory limits on the CO2 emissions of coal-fired plants, or funding for research on renewable energy..."

Uncertainty over new rules on renewable energy sources in Alberta as moratorium set to lift Globalnews.ca

"...A recent paper by Kristina Pearson and Sara Hastings-Simon at the University of Calgarys School of Public Policy said increased wind and solar generation can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from natural gas power plants, and even out the amount those power plants are dispatched to make up for demand. When all approved projects are built, one-third of all hours could require less than 5,000 MW (megawatts) of firm dispatch, and we would start to see hours where renewable energy will exceed all demand, the paper says. The U of C authors said with the change in dispatch patterns and increase in renewable energy sources, natural gas power plants are an affordable option for balancing variable renewable generation..."
