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, September 8: THE CLIMATE CHANGE WILD CARD; PLUG-IN CAR SALES JUMP 40% IN JULY; SOLAR TO LINE MA HIGHWAYS

    THE CLIMATE CHANGE WILD CARD New studies deepen concerns about a climate-change ‘wild card’

    Joby Warrick, September 7, 2015 (Washington Post)

    “Two new studies are adding to concerns about one of the most troubling scenarios for future climate change: the possibility that global warming could slow or shut down the Atlantic’s great ocean circulation systems, with dramatic implications for North America and Europe…The research, by separate teams of scientists, bolsters predictions of disruptions to global ocean currents — such as the Gulf Stream — that transfer tropical warmth from the equator to northern latitudes, as well as a larger conveyor system that cycles colder water into the ocean’s depths. Both systems help ensure relatively mild conditions in parts of Northern Europe that would otherwise be much colder…[ Gradual onset and recovery of the Younger Dryas abrupt climate event in the tropics and Response of Atlantic overturning to future warming in a coupled atmosphere-ocean-ice sheet model] papers offer new insight into how rapidly melting Arctic ice could slow or even temporarily halt the ocean’s normal circulation, with possible effects ranging from plunging temperatures in northern latitudes to centuries-long droughts in Southeast Asia…” click here for more

    PLUG-IN CAR SALES JUMP 40% IN JULY Global Plug-In Electric Car Sales July 2015

    Mark Kane, September 7, 2015 (Inside EVs)

    “Our sales data…and EV Sales Blog is indicating strong 40% (maybe even a few percent higher) growth of global plug-in electric car sales in July…Estimations vary from around 36,500 to 38,500 plug-ins sold worldwide in July…[W]orldwide data generally takes 3-4 weeks past the end of the calendar month to completely compile…Most of the growth comes from China and Europe…[The] 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV entered the Japanese market and that was enough for it to take charge for July…Even the every-month-growing BYD Qin wasn’t able to stop Mitsubishi. Nissan LEAF now sits in fourth, awaiting the 2016 refresh and 30 kWh version…” click here for more

    SOLAR TO LINE MA HIGHWAYS A bright future for roadside solar farms

    Jay Fitzgerald, September 7, 2015 (Boston Globe)

    “Five solar projects sprouting along the Massachusetts Turnpike and Route 3 are not the largest in the state, but they are among the most visible and striking examples of a solar industry that has grown more rapidly than most policy makers and energy specialists ever imagined…[The gleaming rows of solar panels] show how solar power has been integrated into daily life…The highway solar farms are part of an initiative launched two years ago by the state Department of Transportation that will build at least 10 solar projects on unused department property, eight of them along the Mass Pike…[Ameresco Inc., a publicly traded energy management and procurement company, is developing] the solar projects under a contract that pays the DOT nearly $100,000 a year in land leases and allows it to buy electricity at reduced rates from Ameresco. The lower power costs could save the state $15 million over 20 years…Ameresco, which is investing at least $12 million in the solar project, is allowed to sell excess power to electric utilities at a profit…” click here for more
