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.

Elsewhere, in Dubai, a bid worth a record-breaking US 2.99 cents per kilowatt hour was accepted.
