Climate news has been closely observed in relation to the US elections the past weeks. And as it so appears, it was a major topic on the ballot according to grist.org. Especially, renewable energy was apparently the hottest topic on the ballot concerning climate change. Grist reports that fear revolving around climate change sways voters a certain direction. Further understanding of the impacts of climate change will be published upcoming Friday CNN reports. A key report on the impact of humans on climate change is to be released this upcoming Friday. This report details which human activity contributes to climate change, and subsequently which contributing factors are most pronounced.

In the Netherlands, this week a bill passed which will secure that solar panels on privately owned property do not count towards municipal taxes. This bill sparked the interest of a number of politicians to look into how current and future sustainable initiatives won’t be restricted through taxation. This bill received wide support from nearly all political parties, Solar Magazine (Dutch) reports. The rationale behind the bill indicates that generally many believe that those who contribute to a better environment should not be burdened for making a positive impact.

Other news in the Netherlands reports that the share of renewable energy within the overall existing energy supply is advancing. Energienieuws (Dutch) reports that two major energy suppliers have become more sustainable, and hence the private household consumption of renewable energy has increased relatively to the previous year. The article also indicates that the growth is slow, however, there is a growing interest among suppliers to invest themselves in green energy generation. 

A little odd news, reported by the Guardian tells the story of a Norwegian initiative to power cruise ships with leftovers from fish processing. The article informs that ocean transport is increasingly becoming more challenging. As currently, the waste is disposed at landfills, the transition to reusing the leftovers as fuel is seen as a desired outcome. It is said that until there will be a powerful battery, ocean cruising requires more green and effective power solutions. Not to mention, the daily greenhouse gas emissions from the world’s largest cruisers can be as much as 1 million cars on the road.
