While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    THE EASIEST WAY TO TURN BACK CLIMATE CHANGE

    3 Ridiculously Simple Efficiency Measures That Could Help Slow Climate Change; What do India’s industrial motors have to do with Russia’s energy consumption?

    Stephen Lacey, June 11, 2013 (Greentech Media)

    “…In its latest analysis, Redrawing the Climate Map, the International Energy Agency warns that we are dangerously close to surpassing a temperature rise of 2 degrees Celsius, and on a path toward a 5-degree Celsius rise in the coming decades [which would be a ‘catastrophic’ rise. But]…there are still some pretty simple measures the world can take to stabilize emissions…[H]alf of the reductions in carbon dioxide emissions needed to stabilize global temperature rise at 2 degrees Celsius come from energy efficiency measures like building performance standards, equipment and appliance standards, and mileage standards for automobiles…

    “Nearly 40 percent of industrial sector emissions reductions in India could be met simply by adopting better standards for industrial motors. The country currently has no minimum standards for motors, greatly increasing the energy intensity of the industrial sector…The same is true in China, where motors account for up to 70 percent of electricity consumption in the industrial sector. China's current standards are between 10 percent and 30 percent lower than international best practices standards…”

    “Crafting new standards for heating and cooling equipment for China's buildings could…[provide] 40 percent of CO2 reductions that come through better performance standards in heating and cooling…America and Europe could account for one third of emissions reductions in the heating and cooling sector by 2020…

    “…[Stronger] appliance standards…[in]America could reduce emissions by 44 percent in the sector by 2020…In India, such standards could help reduce emissions by 40 percent in the sector. Absolute emissions reductions are highest in China…According to IEA, these three efforts are attractive because…they can be quickly implemented and the mechanics of implementation have already been developed…”
