Tackling climate change with behavior and technology

A report from Behavior, Energy and Climate Change conference,
Sacramento, CA November 2008

European perspective into North American policies

This year Behavior, Energy and Climate Change, or BECC, is organized for the second time. The conference has attracted more 600 visitors, mostly US and Canadian, single participants in many European and even African countries, relatively few from Asia. Focus is on US, particularly west coast, but the global state-of-the-art is well transmitted.

BECC is not a scientific conference. It is an event organized around a mutual theme and even though a fourth or a third of all participants represent universities, presentations are dominated by federal and commercial units. Essentially this is a venue for networking and making impact. The constellation of people present offers excellent opportunity to have an impact in practices and policies and local governments and energy companies if you have an idea and well-prepared sales pitch.

The conference program does have room for more advanced debate as well, but it maybe bit suffers from the broad topic, which has attracted so large heterogeneous audience that the branch experts hardly meet.

The overview shows that there is a huge interest in creating new solutions for energy efficiency and peak production. Although the conference was clearly Californian (along with New Jersey), different kinds of local organizations were clearly over represented, this is very understandable in terms that the states with greatest goals about fighting climate change and reducing energy demand. The actions in US seem fluctuate between different kind of organizations.

Energy service providers, utilities, are currently active trying out different techniques using powercost meters, peak pricing and AMI built-upon applications. The range is quite wide, from lo-fi (remote consumption display) to hi-fi (web-based UI displaying AMI output with the resolution of 15 sec). Generally, the work carried by utilities is not far behind the from the-state-of-the-art but analysis of the data is not carried out on a very detailed level (e.g. Sacramento SMUD)

Research organizations and innovative companies are trying the push the state-of-the-art clearly further. Lot of interesting concepts were introduced and stable technology is used for more extensive and elaborate analysis. For instance, at several universities you can find people who are actively investigating feedback (e.g. in Canada, Waterloo, Alberta). There are so many activities going on that it is very difficult to estimate what will come out of it all. It was actually noted in a conference presentation that there is a concern about how can we ensure that some lessons are learned across a variety of studies.

The situation is difficult in the sense that the amount of players in the business is large and there is a variety of incentives among the parties involved. For instance, the experiments sponsored by PCM or AMR producers may be biased to give a favorable impression of the capabilities of the device.

Seeing the bigger picture through all presentations is not easy. What should be done, what are the priorities? Who should pay for PCM/AMR technology? One important but what felt fully neglected issue in the presentations and posters I saw, was consideration of the expenses on changing from one technology to another. There have been huge campaigns to get people replace regular bulbs with FLSs but the environmental impact of discarded, functional if not efficient technology was not really considered. Although many kind of interventions were introduced to support behavioral change, there seems to be a strong believe that the technology that has gotten us into a trouble should easily also get us out of there. The most rational point of view seems to be held by the utilities that are concerned about the costs and ROIs of the new technology.

Majority of the BECC presentations can be viewed here:

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

You guys have knowledge of running around being scared to open your mouth? I bet you do that's why a lot of you are always working trying to attract money. lol looking for sedatives and fast money because you need veneers. anyway, i'm not selling anything or anything but i do want to encourage everyone to look up veneers. google it or find it somewher or ask your dentist. it is the freaking best thing the world.

all that sugary candy that those wonderful people at mars gave you turned on you and got your whole family running around looking like the wicked witches and wizards of the west.

You go to the denstist and get a cleaning but what the hell is that going to do? You've got caved in teeth, appalachan mountain teeth, rocky mountain teeth, and general crackhead related teeth.

It's rough on you I know but it's true. I used to be the same way. I did happen to spend a couple g's on some veneers in atlanta ga (google it if you're not from the US). Now I do bust out big smiles on every occasion i meet a face, in abstract to the past where it's hide the smile! But anyway some of you might definitely need to undergo such a process.

From another perspective, it's a great way to continue the medical industry and make sure we have motivated dentists to come up with new innovative ways to fix our teeth. veneers is a big step over gold and silver teeth replacements which are gaudy and look crazy.

Банковский кризис в России - российские банки - Кризис доверия к российским банкам достиг США

Кризис доверия к российским банкам достиг берегов США. United Bank of California (UBoC) известил российские банки-корреспонденты о полном сворачивании бизнеса в России и ликвидации их корсчетов с 30 декабря. Таким образом, около 300 банков в странах СНГ будут вынуждены решать непростую задачу - искать нового партнера.

"Можно сказать, что мы переживаем сейчас кризис недоверия", - заявил "Коммерсанту" старший вице-президент и руководитель международного департамента UBoC Роман Кортава. По его словам, "одной из основных причин является предвзятое отношение к российским банкам со стороны некоторых американских чиновников и банкиров". Многие из них считают, что банки стран СНГ если не способствуют, то и не препятствуют отмыванию средств. Кроме того, американцев настораживает и широко применяющиеся в России офшорные схемы.

Первым активные действия начал в мае нью-йоркский филиал голландского ABN Amro, который начал закрывать счета российских банков, назвав причиной низкую отдачу от обслуживания многих из них. Кортава, однако, говорит, что бизнес UBoC был достаточно прибыльным и приносил 15-20 млн долларов в год.

Банковский кризис в России

Российские банкиры последнее время чувствуют растущие требования Федеральной резервной системы США. Именно ее "давлением" объясняет закрытие корсчетов UBoC Ольга Вилкул, начальник управления по работе с финансовыми организациями некрупного ВИП-банка. Крупные американские банки говорят, что готовы работать с российскими банками только из первой сотни, предъявляя при этом весьма жесткие требования, заявила Вилкул "Ведомостям".

После того, как Bank of New York ликвидировал большую часть счетов российских банков, UBoC остался чуть ли не последним оплотом российских банков в США. Мелким банкам, вероятно, придется пользоваться услугами своих более крупных российских коллег и проводить платежи через них.
