Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

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, Nov. 3: THE TRUTH IS UNDENIABLE; NO DOUBT LEFT ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE; NAVY, DOE TO TEST WAVE ENERGY ADVANCES

    THE TRUTH IS UNDENIABLE

    “This is a fight…” From NextGen Climate via YouTube

    NO DOUBT LEFT ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE "There is no ambiguity" on climate change, U.N. concludes

    November 2, 2014 (CBS News)

    “Climate change is happening, it's almost entirely man's fault and limiting its impacts may require reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero this century, the U.N.'s panel on climate science said Sunday…[The final] volume of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's giant climate assessment didn't offer any surprises, nor was it expected to since it combined the findings of three earlier reports released in the past 13 months…But it underlined the scope of the climate challenge in stark terms. Emissions, mainly from the burning of fossil fuels, may need to drop to zero by the end of this century for the world to have a decent chance of keeping the temperature rise below a level that many consider dangerous. Failure to do so, which could require deployment of technologies that suck greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere, could lock the world on a trajectory with ‘irreversible’ impacts on people, like altering the male-female ratio, and on the environment, the report said. Some impacts are already being observed, including rising sea levels, a warmer and more acidic ocean, melting glaciers and Arctic sea ice and more frequent and intense heat waves…” click here for more

    NAVY, DOE TO TEST WAVE ENERGY ADVANCES US Navy, Energy Dept. team to develop wave energy devices; Agency to spend $10 million to test new technologies in deep water Navy facility

    Michael Cooney, October 29, 2014 (Network World)

    “…[T]he US Navy and Department of Energy [will] spend $10 million to test two deep-water wave energy devices [in new deep-water test berths at the Navy’s Wave Energy Test Site (WETS) off the waters of Marine Corps Base Hawaii. The advanced marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) technology] converts the energy of waves, tides, rivers, and ocean currents into clean, renewable electricity…Ocean Energy USA will test a full-scale deployment of their Ocean Energy Buoy…[which] works by harnessing the energy from air that is compressed by the natural rise and fall of ocean waves, and converting it into electricity. The Energy Department and the Navy will collect data throughout the deployment…[to validate] the mooring design and device durability in the open ocean environment, measuring power output at full scale, and evaluating the cost of energy produced…

    Northwest Energy Innovations will build and test a full-scale model of its Azura WEC device…[which] extracts power from both the vertical and horizontal motions of waves to maximize energy capture…[The test will] gather comprehensive data and evaluate how the device performs in the open ocean…” click here for more
