    The Lack Of Climate Change In The Election For Clinton and Trump, There’s Little Debating a Climate Change Divide

    John Schwartz and Tatiana Schlossberg, October 18, 2016 (NY Times)

    “…[Climate change is missing from the list topics chosen for the third presidential debate that includes debt, immigration, foreign affairs, the economy and the Supreme Court…The fate of the planet has come up only in a single question asked by a member of the audience at the second debate, Ken Bone, who received more attention for his red sweater than for the fact that he works for a coal-fired power plant...Michael D. McCurry, a chairman of the Commission on Presidential Debates, said that the moderator and the candidates, not the commission, set the content…Neither of the presidential campaigns responded to requests for comment...[These are the Clinton and the Trump websites on the subject]…This lack of attention might lead some observers to conclude that Americans are unconcerned about climate change, but…[most] Americans say they are interested…but they just do not hear much about it…” click here for more

    Trump And Clinton On Climate Change And New Energy On Energy And Climate Change, Clinton And Trump Differ Sharply

    Christopher Joyce, October 17, 2016 (National Public Radio)

    “This presidential election has rarely focused on climate and energy, even though it is an area where the candidates differ sharply and climate change and energy policy are issues of deep concern to millions of Americans…[In the last debate, Donald Trump argued] the Obama administration is] ‘waging a war on coal’ …[and] putting energy companies in West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania] ‘out of business’…[He wants to increase offshore oil and gas exploration along the Atlantic coast…[He] squarely backs the traditional fossil fuel industry…Clinton says she wants all of the above. She wants traditional fossil fuels, but…[she intends to make the U.S.] ‘the 21st-century clean-energy superpower and create millions of new jobs and businesses…[She wants] to generate enough renewable energy to power every home in America with half a billion solar panels installed by the end of her first term…Donald Trump has expressed disbelief in man-made climate change…[Hillary Clinton supports the Paris Agreement, says voters should not risk] ‘putting a climate denier in the White House’…[and should elect] a president who believes in science’…” click here for more

    New Energy Keeps Booming Two Charts That Show How Renewable Energy Has Blown Away Expectations

    Jessica Shankleman, October 15, 2016 (Bloomberg News)

    “The world’s most prominent energy forecaster will raise its outlook for wind and solar installations following a decade of underestimating growth…The International Energy Agency, which was established as a watchdog of the industry in the wake of the 1973 oil crisis, will ‘significantly’ raise its estimates for renewables…The findings will feed into the World Energy Outlook report due in November, which is used by many forecasters as a starting point for trends in the industry…[but has] been criticized for publishing conservative estimates that failed to predict the rapid growth of wind and solar…The agency has been a key voice in guiding policymakers toward cleaning up the pollution blamed on global warming. Its annual outlook includes scenarios countries could adopt to keep global warming to the United Nations goal of 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) since the industrial revolution…This year’s forecasts seek to reflect the growing number of countries adopting climate change policies, as well as the global deal to curb carbon emissions and global warming…” click here for more
