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.

    SIERRA CLUB HAILS WIND CHAMPIONS IN CONGRESS

    Sierra Club Thanks Members of Congress for Supporting Wind

    August 2014 (Sierra Club)

    “The Wind Production Tax Credit (PTC) is widely acknowledged as a critical part of American wind power’s development into a mainstream source of electricity and one of the biggest, fastest and cheapest ways to reduce carbon pollution while creating [more than 85,000 American] good-paying jobs and saving customers money…It saves more than 30 billion gallons of fresh water each year compared with other energy sources and, if growth remains steady, is on track to produce 20 percent of America’s electricity by 2030…

    “Recently, however, the wind industry has come under strong opposition from groups backed by the billionaire Koch Brothers and other dirty fuels interests…[These members of Illinois’ Congressional delegation have stood up to the Kochs and supported the PTC]: …Mike Quigley (D-IL 5th District)…Jan Schakowsky (D-IL 9th District)…Brad Schneider (D-IL 10th District)…Tammy Duckworth (D-IL 8th District)…Cheri Bustos (D-IL 17th District)…Robin Kelly (D-IL 2nd District)…Bobby Rush (D-IL 1st District)…William Enyart (D-IL 12th District)…” click here for more
