Here's How Green Energy Could Create Millions of Jobs
Republicans often target clean energy policies as "job killers." But are they really? Not at all, says Robert Pollin, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Pollin believes transitioning to a renewable energy economy could actually create millions of jobs, grow the economy and help save the planet.

Germany: The world's first major renewable energy economy
The planet Earth will be completely devastated by 2050 if natural resources will be exploited at the current rate. «According to the scientists, in 50 years people will have to move to another planet, because life on Earth will be impossible». This statement is from 2006. And in 2018 this prediction has been confirmed by the fact that the annual volume of renewable resources of the planet ended on August 1, 2018. Can we stop this huge conveyor? - It is difficult but possible. The key word in this mission is renewable resources. This documentary shows renewable energy sector in Germany. The country is well known as "The world's first major renewable energy economy", and in this film I learned something new about green energy. Please like, and comment below what do you think about the future of renewable energy. Would it save the Earth?

Nature and Life  Episode 124 (Green Economy and Development)
Nature and Life Episode 124 .Green Economy and Development. By Prokriti O Jibon Foundation. Human Civilization moves ahead through close integration of life, science and natural environment. A country's development or decay depends on the good or bad condition of its natural environment. Sometimes improvident use of science causes natural disasters like: drought, flood, cyclone etc. and upsets biodiversity and environment. Evasion of such occurrences requires certainty of environmental and economic development as well as sustainable consumption of every component of the environment. The technology and management of sustainable development, that does not damage the environment, is called green economy. This economic system includes: use of renewable energies, ecofriendly habitation and transportation system and sustainable management of land and water resources. According to scientists, green economy can potentially develop human civilization as well as save biodiversity and ecosystem by reducing greenhouse emission and environmental vulnerabilities. A vital part of green economy is using renewable energy instead of traditional fossil fuel. Among these renewable energies solar energy is one of the remarkable. Thanks to the science, even people of distant rural areas are also being benefitted from this energy. Solar panel converts sunlight directly into electricity. Solar plants have been planted in different places of Bangladesh. Electricity, produced by these plants, is being used for various day-to-day activities. Light bulb, fan, TV etc. electronic items are running by this electricity. Solar plants are very popular in those areas of the country where there is no electricity. It is cost efficient and ecofriendly for it doesn't require oil, gas or coal. Besides solar energy, electricity is also being produced by using air energy and water current. In many countries windmill is being used to produce electricity. Bio-gas plant has accelerated green development in many areas of Bangladesh. Different sized bio-gas plants, made of bricks and concrete, are available in our country. Excreta of domestic animals, household wastes and agriculture wastes are being used as raw material for these bio-gas plants. In this plant methane gas is produced through bio-technology. Methane is an efficient fuel. This gas is being used for cooking, lighting bulbs and even producing electricity. The residue of bio-gas plant makes high quality organic fertilizer. This fertilizer is used in land as alternative to chemical fertilizer and in water as fish feed. Besides bio-gas, use of bio-fuel is gradually getting popularity to meet the demand of environment friendly fuel. This bio-fuel is extracted from fruits or seeds of different plants. But bio-fuel is now being obtained from comparatively less essential plants to reduce the pressure on food-grains. Castor and Jatropha are two such plants. Though they are branded as weeds in our country, quality bio-fuel can be produced from their seeds. These plants can grow in different soil types and can survive in almost everywhere, for they absorb less water. Huge quantity of seeds can be collected every year from these perennial plants. Fuel is obtained mainly from the seeds of these plants. Like other fuel, this fuel can be used for almost all purpose. Since this fuel emits less CO2, it doesn't impact climate change. As a source of renewable energy bio-fuel can be a better replacement of organic fuel. Another vital part of green economy is Recycling system. In this system used plastic, glass bottle, aluminum goods, waste paper etc. items are turned into something that is reusable. This is fulfilling the demand of raw materials as well as deterring environmental pollution. Green economy has not been developed that much in our country compared to other developed countries of the world. This is due to lack of proper initiatives by government and non-government organizations and lack of awareness among general people of the country. Government organizations can play a major role in this regard. Green development can be accelerated by providing loan and other facilities to invent high quality environment friendly technologies, their marketing and building awareness among mass people about their environmental benefits. This will bring about financial development as well as save environment and natural resources of the country. Planner, Director and Anchor: Muqeed Majumdar Babu.

Green Deal, Green Growth [English]
www.greendeals.nl The Dutch government wants to create a more country. That’s why the Netherlands has opted for green growth. To preserve wealth for future generations, we have to seize new busines opportunities, and also take into account the growing need for sustainability. To bring about a genuine transition to green growth, all relevant parties, such as businesses, knowledge institutions, civil society organisations and government must work together. The government’s Green Deal policy aims to play a facilitating and stimulating role by giving parties sufficient room to deploy their sustainable initiatives, in areas, such as mobility, climate, water, biodiversity, food, resources, construction, the bio-based economy and energy.
Boosting investment in the green economy
The Paris Agreement on climate change and the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals at the United Nations were key milestones on the road towards an energy-efficient, low-carbon economy in Europe. According to the International Energy Agency, the full implementation of the Paris Agreement will require $13.5 trillion of investment in energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies. This is why capital markets will play an essential role in mobilising the much-needed investments for the transition to a green economy. At EU level, a High Level Expert Group on sustainable finance was launched in October 2016, as part of the Capital Markets Union (CMU) initiative launched by the European Commission. EURACTIV organised a workshop to discuss the role of sustainable finance in meeting the EU’s climate and environment objectives. Questions included: - What legislative measures can help boost sustainable investment opportunities? - What is the role of insurers in the transformation towards more sustainable investment? - How can consumers be encouraged to invest their savings and pensions in sustainable solutions?

The global pace of technical progress is increasing at breakneck speed. As increasingly advanced technologies come on stream, governments are becoming aware of the need to embrace the ‘green economy’ concept in order to achieve sustainable development. Economic models, market mechanisms and social behavior need to be adapted to take advantage of alternative ‘green’ energy sources. Many developed countries are finding that sun, air and water are the best friends of the future.. What in fact is the ‘future energy’ and the future itself for the states, that depend on oil?

Winona LaDuke - Building a Green Economy
Rural communities have often been affected adversely in historic economic systems based on centralized power and food production. The loss of environmental and human wealth has been costly, particularly in Native American communities, but other rural communities are similarly affected. This historic pattern has buttressed an unsustainable way of life. The future must be sustainable in terms of environment, economics and social relations. Relocalizing food and energy systems as core elements of a rural economy indeed national and international economies has the potential to transform world social, economic and political relations. Our work at a local, national and international level describes how communities make change and the implications for larger society.
Ron Lloyd: Modeling Problems in the Green Economy
2010 HMC Mathematics Conference on the Mathematics of Environmental Sustainability and Green Technology Ron Lloyd (Fat Spaniel Technologies) Any problem that requires new ways of thinking in order to be solved, also requires breakouts in the analytical models used to evaluate potential solutions. A green economy challenges engineers with converting one form of energy—sunlight, wind, waves, heat—into useful forms with reliable and economically viable transformation technologies. This talk will focus on three examples from the green economy that require new analytical models to properly evaluate their technical and economic viability. 1. Electric vehicles—Conventional internal combustion engines operate at 20–25% efficiencies, with a tremendous amount of waste heat to shed. Battery electric vehicles, while more efficient, have very limited on-board energy storage and most ancillary systems are a load on the vehicle's battery system. Vehicle energy use models need a major overhaul to support electric vehicle development. 2. Energy data load and storage—The confluence of Smart Grid, telematics, distributed energy, wireless technologies, and increasing capacities for network traffic and data storage create an explosion of time-sequenced data to be stored and mined in the current and future economies. Predicting storage requirements and system load from data transfer and user mining is an increasingly difficult challenge. 3. Sustainability—Macroeconomics focuses on large-scale societal systems driving the economy. On a global scale, this presumes that economic health is predicated on growth. Constant growth, if predicated on resource consumption, is inconsistent with most views of “sustainability”—a steady state energy system, with finite resources in the biosphere. Reconciling these two fundamental viewpoints is one of the most important macro problems of 21st century society.

Randy Mandell: Finance Vs. Green Economy
What is financialization? Keeping fossil fuels in the ground depends, in no small part, on rapidly developing a Green Economy that transitions us to renewable energy sources and provides clean green jobs. But this crucial endeavor is directly thwarted by our Wall Street-generated financialized economy - one where profits are made not by building new economic structures and improving living standards but by destructively siphoning wealth from current assets and loading us down with debt. To get to a Green Economy in time to stop global warming we need to reverse financialization and make finance serve the public not the other way around. Because financialization harms everyone's lives - students and schools, healers and healthcare, workers and pensions - addressing it is a powerful tool for alliance building and growing the movement to address climate change.

Venkatachalam Anbumozhi: Low-Carbon Energy Systems and Green Growth in Asia
Venkatachalam Anbumozhi, ERIA Senior Energy Economist, explains ERIA's research project "Low-Carbon Energy Systems and Green Growth: Implications for Regional Economic Cooperation." Background Emerging economies of Asia have an essential role to play in promoting the global move towards energy security, economic growth and sustainable development. Although their economic activities are circumscribed by developmental preferences, equity concerns, and industrial competitiveness, they are important agents in implementing several measures which would mitigate global environmental challenges like climate change. The way in which the emerging economies manage their future energy systems and economic integration activities are critically important, as the global society increasingly expects. Asian economies have begun responding to this challenge by in the form of intended nationally determined contributions and concentrated efforts to liberalize trade in environmental goods and services. However, the observed effects of these commitments are often met with many technological barriers, financial deficiencies and lack of international cooperation, some of which are very specific to developing Asia. This technical workshop will discuss the issue papers that examines how emerging economies of Asia is operating amid changing demands for low carbon energy system development and what kind of pro-active policies regional cooperation, market and non-market policies would strengthen such green growth practices in the future. Objectives The study is designed to: a. to identify and elaborate on individual energy policy actions in major economies based on scenario analysis that is necessary to create low-carbon economy at a scale required; and b. to review regional economic integration activities in the region and beyond, that facilitate such actions with suggestions for any improvements. www.eria.org/events/2015/06/low-carbon-energy-systems-and-green-growth-implications-for-regional-economic-cooperation.html
