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 POPE’S CLIMATE PAPER AS THE MOBY DICK OF ITS TIME

    You can’t fight climate change with denial

    Former George W. Bush speechwriter Micheal Gerson, July 2, 2015 (The Olympian)

    "Reducing Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si to a white paper on global warming is…[like reading Moby Dick as if it was about the whaling industry.] The whole spirit and story of the thing is missed…In the pope’s vision, both nature and human nature are gifts to be appreciated and accepted, not despoiled or redefined…Francis is offended — infuriated, really — by how humans have treated their home and one another…[and] there is no getting around the fact that Francis regards potentially catastrophic, human-caused global warming as a fact…Many conservative Republicans now deny the existence or danger of human-caused warming and routinely question the motives of scientists who speak up on the issue…Truth exists to serve the narrative rather than the narrative arising from truth. It is a malady easy to see in others and harder to diagnose in ourselves. But it is dangerous to democracy…The pope’s views on climate change are shared by every national academy of science in the world…Conservatives can choose their policy reaction, but not their own reality.” click here for more
