Investigating Perspectives Of Rural Nevadans On Climate Change Solutions, Tricia Dutcher
Graduate Research Symposium (GCUA)
Rural perspectives are important for the issue of climate change. Rural areas are high concentrations of active voters who deny the problem of anthropogenic climate change. Rural residents also face decisions about inviting large, utility scale renewable energy developments in their areas. This research examines rural Nevadan’s perspectives on climate change to offer insights about the relationship between climate change perceptions and communication strategies. The research offers policy implications that address context specific issues, solution-oriented dialogue, and interest matching to mitigate anthropogenic climate change.

A New Nation, A Brighter Future? Strategic Norwegian Oil Development Assistance In South Sudan, Even Kvelland
The Macalester Review
Post-independence South Sudan faces numerous development obstacles and many consider oil to be a redeeming factor for the new state. This paper discusses the resource curse related to the country’s oil industry and how with proper management, the oil can largely benefit the new state. It explores Norway’s history of oil development and examines ways in which Norway can assist South Sudan in managing their oil, making it the most effective for the people. Key elements of the assistance are the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, technical support focusing on increased oil recovery, and building stronger state ...
Attracting Fdi: The Chilean Government's Role Promoting Renewable Energy, Kyle Herman University of San Francisco
Attracting Fdi: The Chilean Government's Role Promoting Renewable Energy, Kyle Herman
The development and implementation of renewable energy power plants is important for Chile in order to increase energy security, supply remote mines with electricity, and eventually decrease energy costs. The Chilean government has promoted renewable energy and attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to develop large-scale renewable energy projects. However, the policies cannot sufficiently attract FDI in unproven renewable energies such as Concentrated Solar Power, though it is proven elsewhere. This paper examines the Chilean government’s renewable energy policies, related government agencies, and the extent that these provide a stable backdrop for FDI in large-scale renewable energy projects. Following that ...
Chilean Renewable Energy Investment Potential With Technology Transfer, Kyle Herman University of San Francisco
Chilean Renewable Energy Investment Potential With Technology Transfer, Kyle Herman
For potential for investment in Chilean renewable energy investment is promising. After the Chicago boys effectively transformed the Chilean economy into a haven for FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) during the 1980’s, government laws have aligned definitively with neo-liberal policy—in other words, open markets, incentives for investors, public-private partnerships and consistent injections of capital into its financial markets. This article explore these components and highlights investment potential and offers policy advice.

Life-Cycle Assessment In Government Policy In The United States, Daniel L. Reed University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Life-Cycle Assessment In Government Policy In The United States, Daniel L. Reed
The United States government, both at the Federal and state levels, are continuously relying on emerging technological and methodological tools in order to provide essential information to decision and policy-makers. Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is a rapidly emerging tool for both the private and public sectors. Governments around the world are aggressively looking towards life-cycle information to guide policy and promote environmental issues. LCA’s beginning in the United States dates back to 1969 at the Coca-Cola Company as a innovative way at looking at their beverage container’s impact on the environment. Since then life-cycle concepts have been slowly adapted ...
Developing Oil And Gas Resources On Or Near Indigenous Lands In Canada: An Overview Of Laws, Treaties, Regulations And Agreements, Laura Wright, Jerry P. White Western University
Developing Oil And Gas Resources On Or Near Indigenous Lands In Canada: An Overview Of Laws, Treaties, Regulations And Agreements, Laura Wright, Jerry P. White
The International Indigenous Policy Journal
The development of resources on and near Indigenous territories has many potential benefits including employment creation, wealth sharing, and improved service delivery. However, the development of oil and gas resources can also lead to economic inequality, displacement, loss of traditional lifestyles, and significant environmental damage. This paper is a review of the how oil and gas development on Indigenous lands and traditional territories has been regulated in Canada to balance these benefits and risks. Some of the legislation discussed include the Indian Oil and Gas Act, the First Nations Oil and Gas and Moneys Management Act, the Umbrella Final Agreement ...
Renewable Energy Storage Systems, Kyle Herman University of San Francisco
Renewable Energy Storage Systems, Kyle Herman
This paper investigates various storage options for renewable energy, in an attempt to deter the insidious effect of the common notion that renewable energy is intermittent and thus cannot compete with fossil fuel or conventional energies, the object of this paper is to reveal a few basic storage options for renewable energy which are already widely deployed.
Carl Schmitt's Critique Of Liberalism And The European Union, Kyle S. Herman University of San Francisco
Carl Schmitt's Critique Of Liberalism And The European Union, Kyle S. Herman
I invoke Carl Schmitt's Critique of Liberalism outlined in "The Concept of the Political" to better understand the European Union (EU) as a governmental institution. It is my contention that the EU is a liberal institution, with the sole intent to drive economic policy while ignoring identity, similar to what Schmitt rails against in his critique of liberalism. For that reason I demonstrate how the EU fits well into the mold Schmitt laid out to identify liberal politics. Therefore I use Schmitt's critique as both a starting point for defining the European Union and, by superimposing his critique ...
