Lamar Alexander reports Bipartisan Energy Legislation Gives Big Boost to Advanced Nuclear Reactors

 

Says legislation will help reduce carbon emissions, produce large amounts of clean, cheap, reliable energy

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement after the Senate voted 84-3 to begin consideration of a comprehensive bipartisan energy bill that would help lower energy costs and unleash an abundance of clean, cheap, reliable energy.

Last year, Alexander called for a New Manhattan Project for Clean Energy – a five year project with Ten Grand Challenges that will use American research and technology to combat climate change and put our country and the world firmly on a path toward cleaner, cheaper energy. This bill contains several provisions that would help achieve the goals of the Ten Grand Challenges.

Campbell Crossing is a Leader in Energy Innovation

 

Campbell CrossingFort Campbell, KY – The Better Buildings Challenge was launched in 2011, with a goal of making American homes and buildings 20% more energy efficient by 2020. Lendlease, as one of the original companies to accept this challenge, has exceeded this goal within its Department of Defense housing privatization business five years ahead of schedule.

At Campbell Crossing, a Lendlease privatized housing community located at Fort Campbell, a Building Energy Management System (BEMS) was piloted in 2013 through a partnership with MidAmerican Energy Services, LLC.

NASA’s CERES Flight Model 6 instrument to help study Earth’s Energy Budget

 

Written by Eric Gillard
NASA Langley Research Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationHampton, VA – The Earth and its interconnected systems have always been a fascination for Norman Loeb.

“It’s quite an interesting thing when you think about how energy is distributed and exchanged in various forms amongst Earth’s atmosphere, ocean, land and snow surfaces,” he said.

As the principal investigator of NASA’s Radiaton Budget Science Project, Loeb oversees a series of space-borne instruments that measure reflected sunlight and thermal radiation emitted by the Earth. It gives him a chance to satisfy his curiosity about our home planet from NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.

Earth’s energy budget describes the balance between the radiant energy that reaches Earth from the sun and the energy that flows from Earth back out to space. (NASA)

Marsha Blackburn: This Week From Washington – July 23rd, 2017

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – As the stories in the media on health care seemingly change from day to day, one thing remains clear: Americans deserve action. We must act. In addition to speaking with many of you, I spoke on a number of shows this week about the need to get something done on health care and what the Senate can do to make some progress on this issue.

The Senate is now considering a bill that has previously passed to repeal Obamacare with a two-year delay to allow Congress the time to craft and debate legislation that truly addresses the root problems of our high health care costs.

NASA research study shows how Electrical Energy on the Sea Floor may have spawned Life on Earth

 

Written by Whitney Clavin
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Life took root more than four billion years ago on our nascent Earth, a wetter and harsher place than now, bathed in sizzling ultraviolet rays. What started out as simple cells ultimately transformed into slime molds, frogs, elephants, humans and the rest of our planet’s living kingdoms. How did it all begin?

A new study from researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA, and the Icy Worlds team at NASA’s Astrobiology Institute, based at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, CA, describes how electrical energy naturally produced at the sea floor might have given rise to life.

NASA’s IRIS Spacecraft will point it’s Telescope at the Sun to better understand it’s Energy

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationSpace Center, FL – Researchers hope NASA’s latest solar observatory will answer a fundamental question of how the sun creates such intense energy.

Scheduled to launch June 27th, the IRIS spacecraft will point a telescope at the interface region of the sun that lies between the surface and the million degree outer atmosphere called the corona. It will improve our understanding of how energy moves from the sun’s surface to the glowing corona, heating up from 6,000 degrees to millions of degrees.
