Stimulus Stories: Tawanda Wilkens
Tawanda Wilkens has been visiting her grandmother, Bertha McCollum on almost a daily basis along with her three children, ages twelve, seven and four. Ms. McCollum, is a 90 year old homeowner that has lived in her East Baltimore house for over fifty years. Although they loved to visit Ms. McCollum, all three children have asthma that was greatly aggravated when in Ms. McCollum's home. Ms. Wilkens called the Baltimore City Health Department's Lead Abatement Action Project (LAAP) who assessed and remediated the lead hazards in the home, making it safe for Ms. Wilken's children to play in the house. Recognizing additional needs for the family, LAAP referred the case to the Coalition to End Childhood Lead Poisoning (CECLP) and the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). Through their Safe at Home Program, CECLP reduced asthma triggers and addressed safety hazards such as installation of mattress and pillow covers to reduce dust-mites, integrated pest management and installation of a bucket-less dehumidifier to reduce moisture in the basement. Weatherization delivered energy conservation services such as air sealing, insulating the attic, wrapping the hot water heater, insulating pipes, CFL replacements and other measures. The Department of General Services was brought in, and tapping into Maryland Energy Administration and Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant funding, installed a high efficiency gas furnace, a new hot water heater, an energy star refrigerator, a low-flow toilet, and repaired a major electrical hazard in the home. Due to allocations of ARRA funding, all of these programs were in a position to help the McCollum/Wilkens family out of a crisis. Through the services provided to the McCollum/Wilkens family, ARRA funding has made a way to improve their quality of living and help their family stay safe and healthy in their home. The ARRA funding to these programs is also strengthening the community to help lift up and stabilize a vulnerable neighborhood that is at a tipping point.

2/3 Abbott quizzed on broadband, the economy, and foreign policy
Abbott quizzed on broadband and economy http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2010/s2979381.htm Broadcast: 10/08/2010 Reporter: Kerry O'Brien 51 economists back Labor's stimulus spend SMH, August 16, 2010 - 3:57PM http://tinyurl.com/38eexvk Pity the PM didn't hold broadband to light, then oppose it Monday, August 2, 2010 http://tinyurl.com/2ekuuga TONY ABBOTT: ... but if you can't put batts in rooves without causing house fires, if you can't build school halls without rip off after rip off, why would you be confident that they could do this? [Roll out a $43 billion national broadband network.] KERRY O'BRIEN: Well let's talk about school halls. When you talk about the waste in the Government's school building stimulus program, the Orgill report investigating claims of waste in that program found that there had been complaints related to 2.7 per cent of all schools that have benefitted from the program - that's 254 schools out of 7,900 schools where there were complaints. That presumably means there were no complaints at all from 7,650 schools for a program designed to bring benefits to schools and underpin the economy, provide jobs, keep the construction sector going. Is that really the disaster you've painted it to be? TONY ABBOTT: But every single complaint that was investigated was found to have substance. Now at the very beginning of the Orgill process, Mr Orgill made it clear that he could not guarantee the anonymity of complainants. We know that there has been a great deal of institutional bullying of school principals who have gone public with this. I don't think anyone can assume that just because only 2.5 per cent or thereabouts of people complained that there were no problems anywhere else. Those 2.5 per cent of public complaints I think are the tip of this iceberg. KERRY O'BRIEN: Well, you're making assumptions yourself. The Orgill report found that of the 254 schools there were complaints, half those complaints related to money. That brings it down to 125 schools out of 7,900 where some money - not all of the money spent - where some money might have been waste. Do you acknowledge that? TONY ABBOTT: Well what I do state, Kerry, is that the Orgill report found that the cost per square metre across the board was vastly higher than the building standard, than the building standard. KERRY O'BRIEN: Five to six per cent. TONY ABBOTT: No - in NSW, the cost per square metre, the average cost in NSW public schools was something like $4,500 per square metre. It was something like $3,500 per square metre in Victoria public schools. The industry standard is more like $1,500 a square metre. Catholic schools got it for about $2,000 a square metre. Just on what the Orgill report found, plainly, value for money was not being achieved. And in some cases, the cost per square metre was vastly higher. We had $25,000 per square metre in the case of some of these canteens. KERRY O'BRIEN: More broadly on the economy, your campaign slogan focuses heavily on Labor debt. But Joe Hockey [shadow treasurer] acknowledged at the Press Club on Monday that if the Coalition had been in government for the global crisis, you too would have had to run a deficit. How big a deficit? And can I ask you just not to say "Smaller than the Government's"? How big a deficit would you have run? TONY ABBOTT: But we weren't in government. We are not in government. We would have pursued different policies. I can't say exactly what the deficit would have been with those different policies because we didn't get the chance to put those different polices into place. But what we have said all along is that the second stimulus was too much too soon. We, I suppose, had a premonition, if you like, Kerry, that the home insulation program and the school halls program were gunna turn out to be disasters and we were right. KERRY O'BRIEN: So, it'd be very lucky for you if you had these wonderful premonitions through government that you're able to rely on. http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2010/s2979381.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimo,_New_South_Wales

Rudd gives evidence in pinks batts action | The New Daily
Rudd gives evidence in pinks batts action | The New Daily: . Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_PwdFVp32NtZPUqZfAM_jw?sub_confirmation=1 Giving evidence about federal Labor’s failed pink batts scheme, Kevin Rudd says he still bears the “scar tissue” from his time as Australian prime minister.Mr Rudd was cross examined for 45 minutes via video link from New York in the the Victorian Supreme Court on Monday as part of a class action trial over the abrupt cancellation in 2010 of his government’s home insulation program.When asked to confirm he was prime minster in the period December 2007 to June 2010, and between June and September 2013, Mr Rudd said:” That’s correct, I have the scar tissue to prove it”.Class action barrister Jim Delany QC and counsel for the Commonwealth, Rachel Doyle SC, both asked Mr Rudd to respond to hypothetical questions about the home insulation program.More than 140 businesses have joined the class action, which began in late April and is seeking about $150 million in damages from the Commonwealth of Australia.The businesses claim they suffered heavy losses when the program was shut down for safety reasons as a result of the government’s negligence.The Rudd government established the $2.7 billion Home Insulation Program in 2009 as part of a broader $42 billion economic stimulus package.But it was shut down a year later following the deaths of four workers in NSW and Queensland in 2009 and 2010.Mr Rudd said cabinet would not have gone ahead with the program if it had been advised of safety risks to workers and households.“Were you informed by the public service at any time [before the program began in June 2009] that the home insulation program would carry with it safety risks to workers or households, or to both?” Mr Delany asked.“I was not advised there were any safety risks associated with it, to either workers or households,” Mr Rudd replied.The former Labor leader said he would have accepted advice to delay the program so potential safety issues could be investigated.He would have told cabinet “we have to get this right, we cannot proceed with this program with unacceptable safety risks”, he added.But Mr Rudd also said the multiple scenarios proposed by counsel were becoming “a particularly elaborate edifice”.“I think we have gotten to the end of the tether,” he told the court.He also said the cabinet process “is what it is” and relied heavily on advice from the public service and the ministers in charge of the relevant portfolio.-AAP #Rudd, #gives, #evidence, #pinks, #batts, #action, #Daily

OETA Story on Weatherization aired on 10/20/09
This story aired on the Oklahoma News Report (ONR) on OETA-The Oklahoma Network. The reporter is Cathy Tatom; photojournalist is Edwin Wilson. For more information, go to the ONR web site www.news.oeta.tv and ONR blog http://blog.oeta.tv/onr. For more about OETA-The Oklahoma Network, visit www.oeta.tv The verbatim script follows below... AS THE WEATHER TURNS COLDER, MANY PEOPLE ARE HEADING TO THE HARDWARE STORE IN SEARCH OF HELP TO MAKE THEIR HOMES MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT. SOME ARE TACKLING SIMPLE JOBS THEY CAN DO THEMSELVES. Justin Nance/Weatherizing: "I got to finish a little bit of skirting on the front of my trailer to keep the cold draft from going up underneath it." AISLES ARE CRAMMED WITH PRODUCTS TO STOP HEAT FROM ESCAPING THROUGH POORLY INSULATED ROOFS, WINDOWS, AND DOORS. Steve Wooten/Weatherizing: "I've spent about $800 on blown in insulation for the attic. The roof's been redone. We're tearing off the wood and insulating the walls and putting solar backed OSB siding up there and then we're gonna put vinyl siding over that and the windows have already been replaced with double pane windows." FOR YEARS, OKLAHOMA AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAVE OFFERED LOW INCOME RESIDENTS RESOURCES AND HELP WITH THE COST OF WEATHERIZATION PROJECTS AROUND THEIR HOMES. BUT, NOT THE MIDDLE CLASS. THAT'S CHANGING. NOW A WIDE VARIETY OF TAX CREDITS ARE AVAILABLE ON ITEMS USED TO MAKE HOMES MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT AND ECO-FRIENDLY. Steve Wooten/Weatherizing: "It was actually cost effective because the government reimburses us on the green fiber blown in insulation, ah 25% deduction on the taxes and the material was cheaper than normal." AN INITIATIVE RELEASED BY THE OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT THIS WEEK CALLED, "RECOVERY THROUGH RETROFIT" AIMS TO HELP MIDDLE CLASS AMERICANS MAKE THEIR HOMES UP TO 40-PERCENT MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT. IT ALSO CALLS FOR CREATING CAREER TRAINING PROGRAMS AND STANDARDS FOR PEOPLE RETROFITTING HOMES TO BE MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT. AND IT CALLS FOR PROVIDING CONSUMERS WITH CONSISTANT, ACCESSIBLE, RELIABLE INFORMATION THAT PROVIDES A BENCHMARK FOR A PRODUCT'S ENERGY EFFICIENCY. AND, SOUND ESTIMATES OF THE COST OF HOME ENERGY RETROFIT PROJECTS. Scott Ritz/PSO: "What would you guess that the efficiency of this is? Cathy: 50, 60%? Scott: An incandescent bulb is actually five to ten percent efficient. So the energy that's placed into this lamp only five to ten percent is converted to light." Cathy: "This electric meter gives you a really good idea of how much you save when you switch from an incandescent bulb over to a CFL." Jeff Price/Lowe's: "You have energy star rated appliances now that are another big key thing to save money. Example: A top load washer on a full load at a 3.2 capacity uses 48 gallons of water. We never knew that growing up. Some of these use about 17 gallons for a larger load and does a better job and yet is less expensive to run because you don't have as much water going through it." THE PLAN'S LONG TERM INTENTION IS TO SAVE HOME-OWNERS MONEY ON UTILITY BILLS AND HELP CLEAN UP THE ENVIRONMENT. NATIONALLY, THE WHITE HOUSE COUNCIL ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ANTICIPATES THE RETROFITS WILL SLASH GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS BY UP TO 160-METRIC TONS A YEAR. THE PROGRAM ALSO CALLS FOR SETTING CERTIFICATION AND TRAINING STANDARDS TO ENSURE RETROFITTED HOMES ARE BOTH ENERGY EFFICIENT AND HEALTHY. IN TULSA, I'M CATHY TATOM, THE OKLAHOMA NEWS REPORT.

Howlin announces €150m Exchequer Works Programme 2013/14
Public Expenditure Minister Brendan Howlin today announced an additional investment of €150 million in Exchequer capital funding for 2013 to 2014. This represents the first phase of the Exchequer element of the Stimulus Plan. The Minister also provided details on the extensive preparations being made on the Phase 1 PPP Programme, which comprised the larger part of the Stimulus Plan. The Government has also agreed a new PPP Pipeline of projects valued at up to €250m.The new programme of projects announced by the Minister today will include a mix of small scale essential works and some larger projects with roll out beginning over the summer. The Minister said: We are targeting additional Exchequer resources on smaller scale capital works mainly aimed at maintaining or improving existing assets. Projects will be delivered in the areas of schools, energy efficiency and roads repairs. The Minister continued: Although the public finances are severely constrained, it is important that we build for the future. It is absolutely vital for our long-term well-being and prosperity that children have proper school buildings in which they can learn, that our roads are safe and well-maintained and that local authority housing is as energy efficient as possible. I am delighted to be able to make this funding available. The investment is additional to the capital allocations already provided for the relevant Departments (€414m for Education; €900m for Transport & €726m for Environment in 2013). The additional Exchequer investment will be funded through some of the proceeds from the Lottery licence and/or State asset disposals. Read the full press release here. In Education, work will be carried out on 28 schools to either replace school buildings or carry out large scale extension or refurbishment projects. Education Minister Ruairi Quinn said: This announcement highlights the Government's commitment to prioritising investment in school buildings. Despite our economic difficulties, the need to replace inadequate educational infrastructure remains, and this stimulus package means that we can continue to deliver for our growing school communities. These projects will see over 10,000 students and their whole communities benefit from state-of-the-art accommodation, not to mention the economic boost to the construction industry. For more details on the Education funding click here. In the roads sector, moneys will be allocated to local roads to carry out much needed surface restoration and road reconstruction works. Transport Minister Leo Varadkar said: My Department is very conscious that two successive severe winters have taken their toll on the road network. While resources are limited, there is a risk that roads can deteriorate quite rapidly and are expensive to repair if repairs and maintenance are not carried out. This additional funding will help to address the shortfall in this area. The work will be carried out this summer and autumn. This funding will be provided directly to local authorities, which can start work on the repairs as soon as they receive the grants. In the energy efficiency area, a new retrofitting scheme for local authority houses will target up to 25,000 older local authority dwellings and aim to ensure that adequate wall and attic insulation is provided in all occupied properties. Housing Minister Jan O'Sullivan said: Beginning this year the energy insulation measures will target the 25,000 least energy efficient local authority homes. This will result in warmer homes and lower energy bills for thousands of families and will also create more than 1000 jobs in the sector. The lower carbon emissions flowing from the measure are also a significant benefit.

'Effective Deep Retrofit: Risk & Rewards' - Talk by Chris Herring, Green Building Store
Chris Herring, Director of the Green Building Store, gave his talk on 'Effective Deep Retrofit: Risk & Rewards. Three Yorkshire Case Studies' during 'The Future of Buildings - A Retrofit Showcase' event hosted by the Carbon Neutral University Network on November 9th at the University of Sheffield. Content: Talk outlining the importance of deep retrofit and why it is urgently needed. It highlights the key issues that need to be considered when undertaking deep retrofit, including: - Understanding and mitigating risk in retrofits (such as dealing with moisture, ensuring adequate ventilation and effectiveness) - The importance of a whole house retrofit or plan, such as the newly-introduced EnerPHit Retrofit Plan (ERP) scheme, which offers a long-term strategy for deep retrofit - Using effective methodologies, such a Passivhaus (and modelling projects in PHPP) This is followed by a discussion of the ‘whole house’ strategies at three Yorkshire deep retrofit projects that Green Building Store has undertaken and how the risks were managed: - Cumberworth radical retrofit - Stirley Farm EnerPHit - Lower Royd radical retrofit Effective IWI (internal wall insulation) strategies for different wall types are also explored, to help minimise moisture risk within deep retrofit projects. To conclude, a retrofit checklist is offered of issues that need to be taken into account of when planning a deep retrofit. Speaker: Chris Herring, Director of Green Building Store; Chris Herring is Director of Green Building Store and has been advocating and pioneering sustainable approaches for most of his construction career. Chris was Technical Leader on the Denby Dale Passivhaus project. He worked closely with Bill Butcher to ensure the meshing of theory and practice of Passivhaus standards and technology with UK materials and building techniques. Over the last 7 years Chris has been one of the leading proponents of the Passivhaus approach to low energy construction and of the adoption of Passivhaus standards and methodology in the UK. Chris is the current Chair of the Passivhaus Trust and until recently was the Chair of the AECB, the sustainable building association.

Obama's Radio Address 01-3-09
As the holiday season comes to end, we are thankful for family and friends and all the blessings that make life worth living. But as we mark the beginning of a new year, we also know that America faces great and growing challenges—challenges that threaten our nations economy and our dreams for the future. Nearly two million Americans have lost their jobs this past year—and millions more are working harder in jobs that pay less and come with fewer benefits. For too many families, this new year brings new unease and uncertainty as bills pile up, debts continue to mount and parents worry that their children wont have the same opportunities they had. However we got here, the problems we face today are not Democratic problems or Republican problems. The dreams of putting a child through college, or staying in your home, or retiring with dignity and security know no boundaries of party or ideology. These are Americas problems, and we must come together as Americans to meet them with the urgency this moment demands. Economists from across the political spectrum agree that if we dont act swiftly and boldly, we could see a much deeper economic downturn that could lead to double digit unemployment and the American Dream slipping further and further out of reach. Thats why we need an American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan that not only creates jobs in the short-term but spurs economic growth and competitiveness in the long-term. And this plan must be designed in a new way—we cant just fall into the old Washington habit of throwing money at the problem. We must make strategic investments that will serve as a down payment on our long-term economic future. We must demand vigorous oversight and strict accountability for achieving results. And we must restore fiscal responsibility and make the tough choices so that as the economy recovers, the deficit starts to come down. That is how we will achieve the number one goal of my plan—which is to create three million new jobs, more than eighty percent of them in the private sector. To put people back to work today and reduce our dependence on foreign oil tomorrow, we will double renewable energy production and renovate public buildings to make them more energy efficient. To build a 21st century economy, we must engage contractors across the nation to create jobs rebuilding our crumbling roads, bridges, and schools. To save not only jobs, but money and lives, we will update and computerize our health care system to cut red tape, prevent medical mistakes, and help reduce health care costs by billions of dollars each year. To make America, and our children, a success in this new global economy, we will build 21st century classrooms, labs, and libraries. And to put more money into the pockets of hardworking families, we will provide direct tax relief to 95 percent of American workers. I look forward to meeting next week in Washington with leaders from both parties to discuss this plan. I am optimistic that if we come together to seek solutions that advance not the interests of any party, or the agenda of any one group, but the aspirations of all Americans, then we will meet the challenges of our time just as previous generations have met the challenges of theirs. There is no reason we cant do this. We are a people of boundless industry and ingenuity. We are innovators and entrepreneurs and have the most dedicated and productive workers in the world. And we have always triumphed in moments of trial by drawing on that great American spirit—that perseverance, determination and unyielding commitment to opportunity on which our nation was founded. And in this new year, let us resolve to do so once again. Thank you
