The news

EPA to cancel Climate Leaders - Press Release
The EPA announced yesterday that the Climate Leaders program will phase down the services it offers and encourage and assist the transition of our Partners into state and non-governmental organizations that its Partners may choose to join. Factoring into the agency's plans for the program are the many new developments in regulatory and voluntary programs that address GHG emissions, including the first-ever mandatory greenhouse gas reporting rule that took effect on January 1, 2010. Download the letter sent to the Climate Leaders Partners.

Why CIOs should see their power bills - Article
The obvious first step for reducing any organization's energy use is to measure it and find ways to lower it. So why is it that the overwhelming majority of CIOs--owners of their companies' information technology infrastructure and consumers of huge amounts of energy--never see a power bill?

To get paid what you're worth, know your disruptive skills - Blog
Who hasn’t though that they are not paid what they are worth? To change the market’s mind on your value and increase your overall success; offer a disruptive skill set focusing on your distinctive innate talents rather than 'me-too' skills.

ACORE releases 50-state report on renewable energy - Article
The American Council On Renewable Energy released a report highlighting the renewable energy sector in every U.S. state. "Renewable Energy in America: Markets, Economic Development and Policy in the 50 States" compiles financial, renewable energy resource potentials, market and policy information in an online format for busy officials, executives and professionals who need ready-access to information. The online Report will be updated quarterly.

NY To force household cleaner giants to reveal chemical ingredients - Article
For the first time, the State of New York will begin requiring household cleaning companies to reveal the chemical ingredients in their products and any health risks they pose. The first-of-its-kind policy could have national implications, as momentum builds here and abroad for toxic chemical reform. Congress is considering legislation to overhaul U.S. chemicals policy and in July debated a bill forcing the chemical industry to prove the safety of a chemical before it could be used in products.

A ‘greener’ champagne bottle - Article
The Champagne industry has embarked on a drive to cut the 200,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide it emits every year transporting billions of tiny bubbles around the world. Producing and shipping accounts for nearly a third of Champagne’s carbon emissions, with the hefty two-pound bottle the biggest offender.
