WIND AUCTION WILL PROCEED - The Associated Press: "The federal government's plan to auction the development rights to a huge offshore wind farm in the Atlantic Ocean between New York and New Jersey will proceed Thursday.

A lawyer for the fishing groups says they still will be able to seek a halt to the final sale during a federal court proceeding now scheduled for Feb. 8, 2017."

OFFSHORE WIND FARM OPENS - The Associated Press' Jennifer McDermott: "The nation's first offshore wind farm has opened off the coast of Rhode Island, ushering in a new era in the U.S. for the industry.

MAPS FOR (ENERGY) NERDS: Vox's Brad Plumer found this map showing what type of power is cheapest in different parts of the U.S.

ILLINOIS NUKE MODEL LOOKS FAMILIAR - UtilityDive's Maloney: "The massive energy bill signed by Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner last Wednesday puts Illinois on the map in terms of energy legislation and could serve as a template for other states to follow. The Future Energy Jobs Bill (SB 2814) covers many sectors of the power industry, from energy efficiency to net metering, but at its heart is the bailout of two nuclear plants, Clinton and Quad Cities."

ICYMI: TILLERSON GOES FROM OIL KING TO CHIEF DIPLOMAT - Steve Coll for The New Yorker: "The news that President-elect Donald Trump is expected to nominate Rex Tillerson, the chairman and chief executive of ExxonMobil, as his Secretary of State is astonishing on many levels. As an exercise of public diplomacy, it will certainly confirm the assumption of many people around the world that American power is best understood as a raw, neocolonial exercise in securing resources."

--Exxon's financial performance under Tillerson lagged behind its peers.

TOXIC THREAT - The New York Times' Jim Robbins: "The recent death of thousands of snow geese on a toxic artificial lake (in Butte, Montana) high in the Rocky Mountains once again underscored the devastating environmental legacy of more than a century's worth of copper mining."

DESPERATE (CLIMATE) SOLUTIONS - Bloomberg's Eric Roston: "As long-term global average temperatures steadily rise, and international efforts to address them steadily fall short, some scientists and engineers are working on increasingly desperate solutions to the symptoms of global climate change."

GREENS GUN FOR PRUITT - POLITICO's Alex Guillén: Critics of designated EPA administrator nominee Scott Pruitt are considering turning his history of legal attacks on the agency into a weapon against him, in a long-shot bid to limit the damage he can do to President Barack Obama's climate regulations. [federal PRO]

DOWN THE TOILET - The Guardian's Calla Wahlquist: "The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has launched legal action against the manufacturers of 'flushable' wet wipes over allegations that they falsely claimed the products would break down in the sewerage system. The ACCC filed separate actions against Kimberly-Clark Australia and Pental Products in the federal court on Monday on the grounds that the label "flushable" had misled customers to believe that thewipes could be safely flushed down the toilet, just like toilet paper."

--Flushback: POLITICO New York's David Giambusso is on top of the problems swirling around flushables in New York City.

COAL DOWN, NOT OUT - POLITICO Europe's Kalina Oroschakoff: Coal demand growth will stall in the years to 2021 as other fuels become more popular, the International Energy Agency said [Monday], but cautioned that coal was not yet dead. [Europe PRO]

** A message from Clean Energy Link - Powered by Invenergy: The largest renewable energy project ever proposed on Long Island, the Clean Energy Link is the quickest, most affordable path towards Governor Cuomo's 50 by 30 mandate.

Using sites totaling more than 55,000 acres spread across a geographically diverse area, the Clean Energy Link captures great economies of scale, brings Long Island a more consistent supply of green power than is currently available, and offers significant ratepayer value by delivering renewable energy at attractive prices.
