Water bills to soar as climate change takes hold
Increasingly frequent droughts, floods and superstorms are set to
drive water utility costs higher, according to a new report from the
Institute of Mechanism Engineers, the Telegraph reports. The
engineering authority said the longer, hotter summers - an expected
outcome of climate change -will mean water treatment plants will need
to run at peak flow rates for longer. This would raise maintenance and
running costs, energy consumption and the amount of chemicals needed
to clean the water, the report said. "The report's author Jenifer
Baxter, head of engineering at the institution, warned that water
companies will need to adapt to climate change by preparing for both
drought and flood risks," the Telegraph says. Energy Live News also
has the story. -- Jillian Ambrose, The Telegraph

The next major innovation in batteries might be here
Quartz has a feature about a new battery developed by Pellion
Technologies, a Massachusetts-based startup. It claims it "has made
the leap beyond lithium-ion that will bring the battery industry to
the next stage of technological disruption. [CEO Dave Eaglesham] and
his colleagues have accomplished something researchers have been
struggling with for decades: they've built a reliable rechargeable
lithium-metal battery." Quartz explains why this could be significant:
"Pellion's battery can pack nearly double the energy of a conventional
lithium-ion battery, making it able to, for example, double the time a
drone can spend in the air. That 100% increase in energy density is a
step change compared to the annual 10% or so improvement the battery
industry currently averages. If Pellion overcomes early limitations,
its batteries have the potential to power a Tesla car for 800 km (500
miles) on a single charge, rather than today's upper limits of 400 km."

Cross-equatorial winds control El Niño diversity and change
The overall weakening in El Niño events over the past 2 decades
could be related to the "strengthening of cross-equatorial winds in
the eastern Pacific", a study shows. For the new study, the
researchers use in situ, satellite and atmospheric reanalysis data.

Banks could owe customers $840 mn in illegal fees
ABC News, 07 Aug 2018 15:01Z
In an ASIC report released today the corp watchdog says banks have
taken at least $840 mn in various fees without providing any service
to customers. The report came out as the RC into banking starts to
hear how banks have managed superannuation funds with MLC, operated by
the NAB, first up on the chopping block. The prosecutor put it to NAB
managers the bank had looked long and hard for an excuse to avoid
having to pay back $mns to customers for fees they took without
illegally. The managers denied the allegation. The prosecutor alleged
the bank had tried to retrospectively find a service that had been
provided they could claim would justify the fees. The managed denied
the allegation. But they acknowledged they expected the bank would pay
back less when they settled on an opt in compensation scheme but not
alerting customers they had been hoodwinked into paying the fees.

Rod Laver would play around some and then always win eventually. Laver was either holding back or always in control.

Musk is doing the same thing.
