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.

    QUICK NEWS, August 4: WIND LIKES CPP; SOLAR LIKES CPP; COAL IS THE LOSER

    WIND LIKES CPP Wind energy a major solution under Clean Power Plan; Wind can supply majority of new clean power needed most cost-effectively, according to EIA

    August 3, 2015 (American Wind Energy Association)

    “Wind energy can provide a majority of the clean power that states will need to comply with the government’s new rule to reduce carbon pollution from electric power plants…and it can save consumers money doing so…The final rule of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Plan…[calls] for reducing carbon emissions 32 percent from 2005 levels by 2030. Wind energy can supply the majority of the lowest-cost Clean Power Plan compliance mix, according to recent economic analysis by theU.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)…” click here for more

    SOLAR LIKES CPP The Solar Industry Applauds EPA's Clean Power Plan

    August 2, 2015 (Solar Energy Industries Association)

    “Calling President Obama’s signature climate change policy both ‘historic’ and ‘critically needed,’ the solar industry issued its strong support for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan…[and urged] states to consider solar as a clean, affordable, reliable and carbon-free solution…[because it] works in all 50 states, has zero carbon emissions, creates more jobs per megawatt (MW) than any other technology, and can be deployed cost-effectively and quickly…while improving grid reliability…[It is already] the fastest-growing source of energy in America and…[and has created] more than 150,000 new solar jobs in the last decade…By the end of 2016, there will be enough solar energy in the U.S. to power 8 million homes, offsetting nearly 45 million metric tons of carbon emissions…The final rule will include an incentive period to encourage states to take advantage of solar energy's falling costs and rapid deployment…[which] emphasizes the significant role the EPA believes solar will play in helping states cut their carbon emissions…” click here for more

    COAL IS THE LOSER Only One Loser In Obama's Clean Power Plan

    James Conca, August 4, 2015 (Forbes)

    “Natural gas, renewables, nuclear and efficiency are the winners[in the EPA’s new Clean Power Plan…that requires a 32% reduction in power plant emissions by 2030 relative to 2005 levels]. Coal is the loser…Critics claim that the Plan is inherently unfair, punishes taxpayers and will destroy our economy, similar to what was claimed [but never happened] for the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, and a host of other environmental changes that have kept our country reasonable cleaner and safer than most other nations in the world…And none of that will happen if this Plan gets enacted…Since coal kills about a million people worldwide each year, more than any other part of our infrastructure, this public health aspect is the real strength of this Plan…[And] this plan will be easier to enact than anyone realizes…[I]t’s just a matter of planning [old plants’] replacement with a combination of gas, renewables and new nuclear…The utilities won’t be hurt at all. The consumer won’t be hurt either” click here for more
