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, February 1: THE BURNERS MUST BE STOPPED; THERE’S NO STOPPING NEW ENERGY; TESLA CHARGING STATIONS MAKE A DIFFERENCE

    THE BURNERS MUST BE STOPPED New Report Issues Dire Carbon Warning: Keep It in the Ground—or Else; Report examines carbon risk of fossil fuel deposits that could push world past agreed-upon 2°C climate threshold—and efforts to keep them untapped

    Nadia Prupis, January 25, 2016 (Common Dreams)

    “…[Keep It In The Ground from Greenpeace, Sierra Club, and 350.org, examines the carbon risk of fossil fuel deposits] throughout the globe that, if developed, would push the world past the agreed-upon 2°C climate threshold…In order to curb escalating greenhouse gas emissions and fend off their disastrous consequences, the ‘overwhelming majority of the large coal reserves in China, Russia, [the Arctic,] and the United States as well as more than 260 billion barrels of oil reserves and 60 percent of gas reserves in the Middle East must all remain unused [through 2050 or]…we will miss even the high-end estimated budget for a 50 percent chance of limiting warming to 2°C—three times over,’ the authors [report]…However, with such dire circumstances already under way, climate activism has taken on a new momentum, the authors state…” click here for more

    THERE’S NO STOPPING NEW ENERGY Why The Renewables Revolution Is Now Unstoppable

    Joe Romm, February 1, 2016 (ClimateProgress)

    “…Once upon a time, people imagined that replacing fossil fuels with renewables like solar and wind would jeopardize the electric grid’s reliability. Then along came some major countries who showed that it didn’t, and that there really are no limits to renewable integration…[The lead energy specialist at the World Bank recently said very] high levels of variable renewable energy can be accommodated both technically and at low cost [through an improved electricity transmission system, improved predictions of wind and solar availability, demand response, and electricity storage. Until recently, big storage has been impractical and] batteries have been too expensive…[But] the stunning drop in battery prices continues to spur exponential growth…The ‘intermittency’ problem is essentially solved. The will-power problem, however, isn’t…” click here for more

    TESLA CHARGING STATIONS MAKE A DIFFERENCE Electric Car Buyers Hugely Attracted To Tesla Supercharger Network

    Zachary Shahan, January 31, 2016 (CleanTechnica)

    “…With [the new generation of electric vehicles] that have several hundred miles of range, core destination charging is probably all you’d need…[A recent survey] found that convenient home charging was one of the key benefits of an EV lifestyle…[but] EV drivers put “more abundant EV charging” as the #1 way to promote EV adoption and advance the EV revolution (24.4% of respondents chose that option)…65% of potential owners indicated they would be significantly more attracted to a fully electric model if it had access to Tesla Superchargers or something comparable…Tesla’s Superchargers charge a car about twice as fast as the next-fastest DC fast chargers on the market…Only 11% of respondents didn’t care about having access to such a network…In a separate survey for both EV drivers and potential EV drivers, 29% of respondents indicated that DC fast charging was a requirement for them to consider a fully electric car, 25% indicated that it was very important for them, and 27% indicated it was somewhat important for them. Only 12% indicated it was “quite unimportant” and 7% “not important at all” for them…” click here for more
