Audioslave Reunites At Anti-Inaugural Ball After Over A Decade [Watch]

first_imgChris Cornell, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford have reunited as Audioslave for the first time in over a decade at the Anti-Inaugural Ball at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles last night. The Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine supergroup performed three tracks off their debut 2002 self-titled LP, including “Like a Stone”, “Cochise”, and “Show Me How to Live.”The band hadn’t performed together since November of 2005, and officially broke up in early 2007 after releasing their third LP Revelations. It’s not likely that the band will continue this reunion in any shape or form, rather, it seemed to have been a one-time thing for the anti-Trump concert.Watch the entire performance below, courtesy of YouTube user Ted Weitzman:In a previous statement the band explained, “The Anti-Inaugural Ball is a celebration of resistance. Resistance to racism. Resistance to sexism. Resistance to homophobia. Resistance to bullying. Resistance to environmental devastation. Resistance to fascism. Resistance to Donald Trump. We are staring down the barrel of a dystopian nightmare unless we act NOW, unless we fight back NOW. We intend to create ‘No Trump Zones’ across the country; in our homes, our schools, our places of work, and our concert stages. Bad Presidents make for great music. Join us as we get loud and stand together to defend our rights, our country, and our planet.”The event also featured performances from Prophets of Rage, along with special sets from Jackson Browne, Jack Black, Vic Mensa, and the Los Angeles Freedom Choir.last_img read more

U.K. firm projects offshore wind capacity will top 165GW by 2030

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享 offshore wind installations will hit 165GW by the end of the decade and are on track to reach 418GW by 2040, according to new research by UK analysts Rethink Energy.The global expansion of offshore wind will see the technology provide 5% of global electricity in two decades, as installed capacity balloons from the 25GW installed worldwide today. The report predicts this growth will require some $1.3 trillion in investment and create 8 million jobs.Rethink said the Asia Pacific region is on track to overtake Europe as the largest market for new installations within the 2020s and China is set to take over from the UK as the country with the most installed capacity by 2026.US installations are however likely to continue to lag behind those in Europe and Asia over the next decade.Transmission was singled out as a key challenge that needs to be met to ensure the progress of the sector in global markets.The emergence of floating wind is set to play a big role in boosting the rate of new capacity added beyond 2030. Its authors predict the LCOE of floating wind will reach “a competitive level” between 2028 and 2030, but said the growth of floating installations in the near-term will likely be dogged by consenting problems.More: Offshore wind to ‘top 400GW by 2040’ U.K. firm projects offshore wind capacity will top 165GW by 2030last_img read more
