Hawaii rebels against Trump with a law to uphold the spirit of the Paris climate accord | LA Times

Amid a widening partisan divide over climate change, Hawaii lawmakers have a message for President Trump: The Paris agreement is needed. Rebelling against the president’s decision last week to pull out of the international climate accord, Hawaii Gov. David Ige has signed into law a measure that aims to push Hawaii toward doing its part to achieve the worldwide greenhouse gas reductions the agreement calls for. It is the first law in the nation directly responding to the decision, though more are expected.

Hawaii GMO Seed Companies Win Big In Appeals Court Rulings | Civil Beat News

Monsanto, Syngenta and other seed companies that farm in Hawaii won a significant victory after a federal appeals court ruled that counties can’t regulate pesticides or genetically modified crops. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals concluded Friday that Hawaii state pesticide law is comprehensive, and that the Legislature intended it to be “uniform and exclusive of additional, local rules.”

Hawaii's last sugar harvest paves the way for a fight over the land's future | US news | The Guardian

For one last season, luscious, green fields of sugarcane are animating Maui’s landscape. Hulking trucks are loading pre-burned cane from the Hawaiian Corporate and Sugar Company (HC&S)’s 144th crop into the rust-colored factory where it will be rolled, shredded, squeezed and boiled into molasses. Passenger jets rumbling over the cane fields are a reminder that tourism has overtaken sugar in recent years, and assumed the role of largest industry in Maui.

Hawaiian sovereignty movement | Wikipedia

The Hawaiian sovereignty movement (Hawaiian: ke ea Hawai‘i) are political and cultural organizations and individuals seeking some form of sovereignty for Hawaii. These sovereignty groups developed as a grassroots movement over the struggles of the Native Hawaiians with an assortment of land issues that have effected modern Hawaii with efforts made in the classroom through education as well as the courtroom through litigation. Along with protests on the streets throughout the islands, at the capitol itself as well as the places and locations held as sacred to Hawaiian culture, Hawaiians have challenged United States forces and law.

Hawaiian Electric: Net Energy Metering in Hawaii | HECO

NEM gives value to the excess electricity you produce with your renewable generation system. Electricity generated by your renewable generator would first supply power for your own needs and any additional power you need would be purchased from the utility. When a NEM customer generates more electricity than what is consumed, excess energy produced can be exported back to the utility at full retail value which can be used to offset electricity purchases over a 12-month period. This is in contrast to other non-NEM customers with renewable energy generation systems. If they have a power purchase agreement, they are compensated for power exported to the utility grid at a lower wholesale rate. Standard interconnection customers must consume all electricity that is self-generated, and not allow to export surplus energy to the grid nor be compensated. With NEM, you are in effect being given the retail credit for excess power which you generate.
