Air pollution spikes in Palm Beach County.  Air quality in Palm
Beach County worsened slightly this week, as hot dry weather
prevented the swift dilution of pollution from cars, power plants
and other sources.  The Air Quality Index for the county dipped

In California, Spigots Start Draining Pockets.  The municipal
water utility in this city, home to wide beaches, sun-kissed

Solar panels here to stay atop White House roof.  The White House
has completed installing solar panels on the First Family's
residence, a process it started back in 2010.  President Obama,

sectors, took up the gauntlet nearly three decades after Ronald
Reagan dismantled the panels Jimmy Carter had put on the roof.

Lots of US states have implemented some sort of tax incentive
program for buyers of electric vehicles. Hawaii, California,
Massachusetts and more. One of those others could soon be Texas -
land of the famously anti-Tesla dealer laws - where an
alternative fuel vehicle rebate is about to go into effect,
perhaps as soon as next week.  Posted.
