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, November 21: The Military Is Serious About Climate Change; General Motors To Build Cars With Wind; Why The Solar Deal Keeps Getting Better

    The Military Is Serious About Climate Change Military plans for climate change despite skeptics

    W.J. Hennigan, November 20, 2016 (LA Times via Duluth News Tribune)

    “…[The Pentagon has publicly attributed damage to its domestic facilities caused by increasingly severe weather to climate change even though] President-elect Donald Trump has described global warming as a hoax, and Republicans in Congress who reject science showing that greenhouse gases have warmed the planet have blocked funding to help the Pentagon…But the debate is settled at the Pentagon. Rising sea levels and temperatures have forced it to rebuild or move roads, housing, airfields and other vulnerable facilities damaged by mudslides in Hawaii, floods in Virginia, drought in California and thawing permafrost in Alaska…The Pentagon doesn’t say that climate change alone will cause wars. But the 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review, the Defense Department’s major planning plan for the next four years, calls it an ‘accelerant of instability’ and a ‘threat multiplier…’” click here for more

    General Motors To Build Cars With Wind GM to power Arlington plant with energy from Texas wind farm

    Steve Kaskovich, November 17, 2016 (Ft. Worth Star-Telegram)

    “…[President-elect Donald Trump’s climate change skeptism isn’t slowing the General Motors push] for renewable energy…[T]he automaker announced its biggest renewables deal to date, buying enough wind power to cover electricity needs at 16 [Texas] facilities including its Arlington assembly plant and the GM Financial headquarters in downtown Fort Worth…[It] will purchase 50 megawatts of power produced at Cactus Flats, a 150-megawatt wind farm being developed by Renewable Energy Systems…When the contract begins in the first half of 2018, 6 percent of GM’s global energy use will be powered by renewable energy…GM has committed to be completely powered by renewable energy by 2050, as well as develop electric vehicles, to help address climate change. The automaker is part of a coalition of companies called RE100 dedicated to the same goal…” click here for more

    Why The Solar Deal Keeps Getting Better 4 Reasons The Cost Of Solar Energy Keeps Falling

    Sarah Lozanova, November 21, 2016 (Earth911)

    “…Solar power is growing at an unprecedented rate of 43 percent, year over year…[and its plummeting cost] is fueling a boom in popularity…[S]olar has already achieved price parity in 10 states…[The costs of manufacturing panels, inverters, and racking] have come down at a steady pace each year…This downward price trend is very common with new technologies. Remember how expensive new DVD players and cell phones were when they were first introduced? The cost per unit declines sharply once manufacturing kicks into high gear…[The most efficient solar panels available on the market have an efficiency of 22.5 percent and] most panels are in the 14 to 16 percent range…Efficiency in turn fuels greater opportunities to sell more solar generation capacity…[T]he Solar Investment Tax Credit has offered greater stability and a significant incentive for installing solar energy systems, for both the residential and commercial markets…[The recent solar energy trends are expected to continue because the] lower the price of a solar system and the shorter the payback period, the more people will go solar…” click here for more
