1.0 Energy Security, Divergent Scientific Opinion & Transitioning to a Low Carbon Future: The Scientific Round-Table & Information Conflicts (Posted 17 February 2017)

Resolving information conflicts over energy security through the use of the scientific round-table, provides a problem-solving pathway for achieving meaningful involvement of competing energy interests in conflict resolution.

Resolving  information conflicts over energy mix/energy security would also facilitate reaching a negotiated outcome for a “National Energy Policy” that reflected fair treatment:   That is, one that minimized the extent to which environmental costs and benefits were shared disproportionately between Government, industry and the community.

Environmental justice would prevail if these goals were achieved.

2.0 Moving to a Sustainable Low Carbon Future & Energy Security: Fossil Fuels ~v~ Renewables and the Paris Agreement (Posted 25 October 2016)

TAGS: Climate change; energy security; divergent scientific opinion; energy mix; Nationally Determined Contributions; fossil fuels; renewables; intermittency; sustainability; information conflict; Paris Agreement

Evaluation of  fossil fuel and/or renewable energy mixes in Nationally Determined Contributions, as options for power generation, must be based on relevant and reliable scientific evidence to ensure the validity of the conclusions generated.

The evaluation and balancing of the multiple objectives of sustainability - ecological, economic and social (including cultural) - must focus on equity  and based on the accepted methodology/protocols of the relevant scientific community.
