    QUICK NEWS, December 12: More Trump Nonsense On Climate – 'Nobody really knows'; Solar’s Unstoppable Boom Likely Beats Trump Barrier; Wind’s Unstoppable Boom Likely Beats Trump Barrier

    More Trump Nonsense On Climate – 'Nobody really knows' Trump says ‘nobody really knows’ if climate change is real

    Juliet Eilperin, December 11, 2016 (Washington Post)

    "…[U.S. President-elect Donald Trump told Fox News Sunday] that ‘nobody really knows’ whether climate change is real and that he is ‘studying’ whether the United States should withdraw from the global warming agreement struck in Paris a year ago…[He also said] he’s ‘very open-minded’ on whether climate change is underway but has serious concerns about how President Obama’s efforts to cut carbon emissions have undercut America’s global competitiveness…There is a broad scientific consensus that human activity — including the burning of fossil fuels for transportation, heating and industrial manufacturing — is driving recent climate change…Trump said he needed to balance any environmental regulation against the fact that manufacturers and other businesses in China and elsewhere are able to operate without the kind of restrictions faced by their U.S. competitors…The U.S. has outpaced the rest of the developed world in terms of growth since the 2008 recession, though developing countries such as China boast higher growth rates. Typically, economists compare the U.S. against other industrialized nations since developing countries typically grow faster than their developed counterparts…” click here for more

    Solar’s Unstoppable Boom Likely Beats Trump Barrier These GIFs Show America's Remarkable Renewable Energy Explosion; Even the Trump administration's fossil-fuel-powered cabinet appointees may have trouble stopping this momentum.

    Ben Schiller, December 9, 2016 (Sustainability)

    “…[A]cross the U.S., renewable energy has been growing exponentially over the last five years: In the first quarter of this year, it made up about 15% of total electricity output. Solar alone now powers the equivalent of 6 million homes…[according to data and graphics] from the Natural Resources Defense Council…In gigawatt hours (GWh), they show where solar and wind have taken off fastest, and particularly how renewables are spread across both blue and red states, indicating their fundamental worthiness (as opposed to their ideological appeal). It's all about cost and availability… Will this growth continue now we have a coal-industry lobbyist running the Environmental Protection Agency? There are reasons to be hopeful. Federal tax breaks for solar and wind have across the board support in the Senate…[Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley recently said Trump would kill the wind energy production tax credit only ‘over my dead body…’” click here for more

    Ben Schiller, December 9, 2016 (Sustainability)

    “...Texas leads the nation in wind power because it has lots of wind resources and because the cost of wind power has been reduced by about 50% since 2008…[Its wind boom is part of the skyrocketing growth of renewables since 2008, as shown in graphics from new graphics from the Natural Resources Defense Council …[A] lot of government support for renewables comes from the states rather than Washington, D.C…29 states and the District of Columbia now have ‘renewable portfolio standards’ requiring utilities to produce certain proportions of power from clean sources…California and New York have 50% targets by 2030, while Hawaii wants 100% by 2045…[Many city mayors want to increase renewable production and 39 recently wrote to Trump saying that unmitigated climate change could cost the U.S. economy $500 billion annually by 2050…Whatever a Trump administration does or doesn't do on climate change in the next four years, it's possible that [technology and market forces will give renewable energy enough momentum to survive…” click here for more
