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.

    NEW ENERGY IN THE COMING REPUBLICAN CONGRESS

    The Day After: What the Mid-Terms Mean and How To Move Forward

    Kim Kimmell, November 5, 2014 (Union of Concerned Scientists)

    “…[With Republicans] holding a majority in both houses, voters will rightly hold that party responsible for governing, and expect progress…[so] there may be surprising opportunities for progress rather than merely gridlock…But there is no sugarcoating this: a more likely result is a heightened risk of ‘backsliding’ on a range of important issues…[W]e’re likely now to see Congressional attempts to delay or repeal rules…[limiting] global warming emissions from power plants…[They] won’t always be easy for the President to veto…if they are attached to ‘must-pass’ appropriations bills…Congress may also now try to pass laws that handicap our agencies from using the best science to guide decision making…[The gridlock] may get worse…

    “The Union of Concerned Scientists…[is] looking for partners to get things done. Some clean energy bills, for example, have overwhelming bi-partisan support…If the new Congress does try to roll back protections on clean air…we stand ready to lead a broad coalition to foil those efforts…We will also be working actively with the administration to continue taking action without Congress on crucial issues such as limits on global warming pollutants from power plants, and fuel economy standards…Finally, we are working now to expand our presence in cities and state capitals…” click here for more
