Maintaining Utah’s Air Quality

Green Resource Advocates aims to improve the air quality in and around Utah’s most populous cities. Poor air quality is a severe concern to people and the natural environment around Utah’s Wasatch Front, a line of villages and suburbs that includes areas where most Utahns reside.
Utah’s regional air quality management authority is mandated to create a strategy involving public participation and then propose it to the …

Focusing Solar Power

Mirrors are used in CSP facilities to collect solar energy, which is then used to power conventional steam turbines or motors that generate electricity. The thermal energy collected in a CSP plant may be kept in battery systems and used to generate power at any time.
Parabolic Trough
In a parabolic trough system, curved mirrors are used to collect the sun’s heat and focus it onto a receiver tube. Inside the receiver tube, heat transfer fluid absorbs and concentrates the heat. Then, when the fluid reaches a certain temperature, it will flow …

Preserving the Western Land Quality

The magnificent natural landscapes of the nation are our legacy and characterize our territory. Despite the recognized beauty and importance in sustaining our multibillion-dollar recreational industry, our lands are now endangered by climate change.
Climate change may have a significant influence on soils and the activities they perform. Climate change also impacts agricultural output since variations in soil, air temperature, and precipitation will affect the capacity of crops to mature and their potential yield.

How The Power Sector Should Adjust to Tackle Climate Change

Power generation accounts for a significant share of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. The vast majority of energy is consumed in our homes, businesses, and industries. It powers everything from heating and air conditioning to computers and other production tools.
Who could picture our environment without the plentiful animals, clean waterways, and snow-capped summits that make this country the finest location to reside and work in the world? The climate problem is undoubtedly impacting our natural surroundings and economy, as well …

Preserving The Colorado River

The Colorado River is vital in the region. It supplies water to more than 36 million citizens, irrigates around 4 million acres of land, and nourishes a $26 billion water-based leisure industry. It also hosts 30 indigenous fish species and vital river ecology for the thousands of birds commuting the Pacific Flyway.
The Colorado River provides water to regions ranging from Arizona and New Mexico to Nevada and Wyoming. Population needs on the river have increased to the point where they now exceed what the river basin inherently offers.

How We Can Cut Down Emissions on the Power Sector

To reach a society with renewable power and clean transportation, we must all work together. To develop solutions for a more sustainable future, we will need great thinkers, innovators, researchers, and lawmakers. Will you be one of them and join us in supporting the cause?
Our first step will be to cut the greenhouse emissions that are contributing to climate change. We must learn how to utilize more clean energy and how to utilize it more effectively. Everyone, including young students and ordinary people, can play a role starting from our cell phones to our …

The Challenges in Climate Change

Climate change is a primary problem in our era. For ages, modernization, urbanization, population increase, large-scale agribusiness, and deforestation have resulted in greenhouse gas emissions that elevate the earth’s temperature.
Experts everywhere agree that the world temperature rise should be controlled below 2° Celsius. This is to prevent the most severe consequences of climate change. Of course, we can’t afford to sit and wait much longer until everything is too late.

Deb Haaland’s Appointment As Secretary of The Interior

Green Resource Advocates applauded the unprecedented appointment of Deb Haaland to the position of Secretary of the Interior. Haaland is the first Indigenous female to head the department that governs tribal territories and controls a quarter of the country’s lands, much like in the Western part.
Deb Haaland’s remarkable approval to run the Department of the Interior is possibly the best decision to make. It provides a huge chance to solve the Western United States’ serious conservation issues. The significance of Haaland’s profound ties to the West in tackling the region’s severe …

ACC’s Vote on Energy Rules Update Falls Short

ACC’s promise to having Arizona’s utilities accomplish a 50% decrease in carbon emissions by 2032 is a great start for supporting the state to confront climate change while taking advantage of green energy’s economic potential. Yet, the 2070 deadline falls way short of the timescale required, according to experts, to prevent the worst effects of global warming.
It is vital to set a deadline of no later than 2050 for ending the destructive fossil fuel consumption that drives climate change…

Nevada to Support Clean Energy Economy

Conservationists praised the approval of Senate Bill 448 by the Nevada Legislature. The bill is intended to connect electric utility programs and investments with statewide climate goals. The comprehensive bill will then be signed by the Governor and put into effect.
SB 448 would address critical concerns such as energy transition, electric vehicles, solar energy, sustainable electricity, renewable power storage, power efficiency, and other domains. It will provide the groundwork for Nevada’s future energy sector. Nevada is taking significant steps to expand its electric transportation and power infrastructure…
