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.

    QUICK NEWS, July 7: THE MILITARY FACES CLIMATE CHANGE; NO. CAROLINA’S FIGHT FOR SOLAR; WOMEN IN WIND

    THE MILITARY FACES CLIMATE CHANGE Climate change threatens national security; This issue is about science, not politics, and the military is taking it very seriously…

    Rear Adm. David W. Titley, July 5, 2014 (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

    “Climate change is an accelerating threat to national security…[according to] a recent report by the CNA Corporation’s Military Advisory Board…[a panel of hard-nosed leaders] with decades of experience evaluating national security risks…[W]e are increasingly worried about the lack of comprehensive action by the United States and the global community…The changing climate is already serving as a catalyst for conflict…[T]he severe drought in the years leading up to the civil war in Syria…didn’t cause the war, but it certainly served as a destabilizing factor…I used to be something of a skeptic about climate change. I have a Ph.D in meteorology. I know how complicated the weather system is and how difficult it is to predict accurately…Over the years, scientific findings on climate change have built to the point where we simply cannot afford to ignore them…” click here for more

    NO. CAROLINA’S FIGHT FOR SOLAR NC quietly becomes a star on solar energy stage

    Daniel Gross, July 5, 2014 (Charlotte News and Observer)

    “…[In] the last few years, the Tar Heel State has quietly become a leader in rolling out solar. The Solar Energy Industries Association, or SEIA, notes that last year, North Carolina added 335 megawatts of capacity – the third-best tally of any state in the country. With a total of 592 megawatts of solar capacity installed, North Carolina ranks fourth among the 50 states…[and] North Carolina ranks second in the number of solar farms under construction, behind only California…Relatively favorable state standards have unleashed a burst of entrepreneurial energy. Progressive companies from out of state have demanded that their new facilities be powered by renewable resources, such as solar. And now that the industry has gained critical mass, it has displayed an ability to export its expertise to neighboring states…As the industry has gained critical mass, it has also gained clout…North Carolina solar keeps gathering momentum…” click here for more

    WOMEN IN WIND Women serving prominent roles in Maine’s emerging wind energy industry

    Jon Marcus, July 4, 2014 (Bangor Daily News)

    “…Maine leads New England in the amount of power it generates from wind, but substantial obstacles remain. The high cost and environmental impact of running transmission lines to connect far-flung wind farms to the electrical grid is one of them…Another is a thicket of regulation that contributes to the fact that only one in five projects in the Northeast actually ever gets built…[Katherine Joyce, an attorney at Bernstein Shur in Portland who specializes in the complex permitting process needed to harness wind for power, is] one of a surprising number of women in Maine who are prominent in the fast-growing industry…[W]omen hold only 12 percent of jobs in the business nationwide…[I]n spite of alternative energy’s meteoric growth, far fewer women than men enter the occupations that principally fuel it. Barely 14 percent of engineers and architects are women, and women make up only 2 percent of electricians…[and] colleges and universities continue to graduate four times more male than female engineers…But the fact that wind energy is still a comparatively new industry means there are also fewer traditional barriers for those women who want to move in and move up…” click here for more
