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.

    Is Climate Change War?

    Is it useful to think of climate change as a “world war”?

    David Roberts, August 18, 2016 (Vox)

    Editor’s note: This piece and the one it references should be read in full.

    “Bill McKibben — author, activist, mensch, and, though he would hate me saying so, the closest thing the climate movement has to a spokesperson — [wrote recently that climate change is tantamount to a global war. The analogy] has been bouncing around climate circles for years…[T]he piece is thought-provoking, elegantly written, and suffused with moral urgency. Go read it…Praise 1: The war metaphor helps convey the significance of 2 degrees…Praise 2: [It gives a] tangible sense of what mobilization would look like…Critique 1: No mention of the elephant in the room…[Anything close to the kind of mobilization McKibben is talking about would require legislation and that] requires Republican assent. And Republicans a) reject the very existence of climate change and b) do not, and will not, cooperate with Democratic presidents…Critique 2: War requires a big tent…[W]hile I think it is laudable to speak frankly about the scale of the challenge, I worry about being too prescriptive, too specific…Note of despair: Climate change defies all metaphors…” click here for more
