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, December 1: HOW CLIMATE CHANGE BENEFITS TERRORISTS; NEW ENERGY TO BE BIGGER THAN SHALE GAS; LET THE SUN SHINE

    HOW CLIMATE CHANGE BENEFITS TERRORISTS How ISIS and Boko Haram Profit From Climate Change; The Paris climate summit is also about national security, with jihadist groups snatching up land largely emptied by extreme weather and declaring ‘caliphates.’

    Christopher Dickey, November 30, 2015 (The Daily Beast)

    “…[‘What greater rejection of those who would tear down our world, than marshaling our best efforts to save it?’ President Obama just asked in Paris. And French Presidend Hollande responded: ‘These are two major challenges we must overcome. We must leave our children more than a world free of terror, we owe them a planet protected from disasters, a viable livable planet.’ Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore] has noted the inconvenient truths about climate change as a security challenge many times…[O]n its face there is little connection between what happened in Paris on the 13th and the suffering of millions around the world who’ve been affected already by rising temperatures, droughts and sea levels…But the Paris terrorists were linked to the so-called Islamic State and its affiliates in an incipient global jihadist insurgency that has managed to seize and hold lands, declaring ‘caliphates’ in spaces that were largely emptied by recent extreme weather and human abuse of natural resources…[C]limate change is forcing about 20 million people a year out of their homes, and by 2050 that figure could be 150 million…It is precisely from those populations, uprooted and uncared for, that [Boko Haram and Isis grew strong]…” click here for more

    NEW ENERGY TO BE BIGGER THAN SHALE GAS Wind, Solar Power to Supply More Energy Than Shale, Goldman Says

    Chris Martin, November 30, 2015 (Bloomberg News)

    "...New wind turbines and solar panels worldwide will provide more energy over the next five years than U.S. shale-oil production has over the past five, according to The Low Carbon Economy from] Goldman Sachs…The leading renewable-energy technologies will add the equivalent of 6.2 million barrels of oil a day to the global energy mix, exceeding the 5.7 million barrels a day pumped from U.S. shale oil wells since 2010…While countries are setting targets for emission reductions in 2030 and 2050 [in this week’s Paris climate talks], Goldman Sachs said the biggest shift will occur over the next decade as demand for renewable energy, LED lighting and plug-in vehicles accelerates…Wind and solar [are already] saving a gigaton of carbon dioxide emissions annually…[They are on track to exceed 100 gigawatts in new installations and] the market for four leading low-carbon technologies is now worth more than $600 billion per year…” click here for more

    LET THE SUN SHINE Solar Power In Europe: Can Germany And France Lead In Renewable Energy Despite Cloudy Climates?

    Jess McHugh, November 30, 2015 (International Business Times)

    “…The concerted effort of the German government to encourage renewable energy is referred to as Energiewende, meaning ‘energy transition’…Renewable energy, including solar power, is set to account for 33 percent of all domestic power consumption in Germany in 2015, compared to 10 percent in the U.S…The thrust in France has come primarily from top-down government initiatives, including subsidies and the installation of solar farms. The legislative body of France passed a law in March which dictates that all new commercial buildings constructed across the nation must be at least partially covered in plants or solar panels…Around 17.5 percent of all energy in France comes from renewable energy…[T]he United States has lagged behind Germany and France when it comes to renewable energy: Alternative energy sources account for only about 13 percent of electricity production in the U.S. Subsidies and grid-connectedness vary greatly state by state, with some states like Massachusetts or California enjoying highly developed solar infrastructures while others like South Carolina or Nebraska have very few subsidies…Solar power in the U.S. would also face additional geographic challenges [until concerns about intermittency are put to rest with a more integrated grid or more affordable energy storage]…” click here for more
