Is Maine's Largest Contiguous Forest Collateral Damage In The Fight Against Climate Change? | EarthWhile
The debate over Central Maine Power’s proposed billion-dollar transmission project is about more than just money. It’s also about threats to scenic vistas, wildlife habitat and backwoods culture, and whether all of that should take a backseat to what some see as the most urgent challenge of the day: fighting climate change.

Imagine, giving people homes cut down on homelessness.

'And lastly, she says, the team took a "Housing First" approach, which is "simply the idea that you accept people as they are," whether they are sober or not. "You just accept them as they are and you provide the housing first," Kegel says. "Then, once they're in their apartment, you immediately wrap all the services around them that they need to stay stable and live the highest quality life that they can live."'

New England Tries A New Way To Help The Grid Survive Winter | WBUR News
Winter is back with a vengeance. And this year, New England is using a new method to ensure the electric grid can work reliably through cold, snow and ice. It's called "Pay for Performance," and it’s a competitive market system that rewards power generators for efficiency, and punishes them for poor execution.

Remember life before social media? Maybe it's time for a reminder | WBUR
"When Twitter was young and tweets a mere 140 characters long, I used to mock the platform for consisting largely of posts that merely used tiny URLs to direct readers to in-depth articles on real new sites. Now I long to return to those days," writes Julie Wittes Schlack for WBUR. Work by Kate Starbird, professor of human centered design and engineering, is referenced.

What Red State Kansas Can Teach Blue State Mass. About Renewable Energy | Cognoscenti
Cloud County, Kansas, is about as far as you can get, politically speaking, from proudly progressive Massachusetts. In the 2016 election, 75 percent of the county’s  voters supported Donald Trump. Yet it was there, almost a decade ago, that I saw my first utility-scale wind farm, its turbines stretching gracefully across wheat fields and cattle pastures. Why, I wondered at the time, was wind power welcomed by this staunchly conservative farming and ranching community while we New Englanders — avid theoretical supporters of clean energy — were so busy fighting wind development in the Berkshires and on Nantucket Sound?
