Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

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.

    The Climate Change Solution At Hand, Part 2

    We Already Have A Solution To Climate Change, And It Doesn't Rely On The Government

    Paul Mainwood, December 1, 2016 (Quora via Forbes)

    “…The learning curve cutting solar costs] has been named Swanson’s Law and] with every doubling of solar installation, we get a price reduction per watt of approximately 20%...[V]olumes are doubling: every 2.2 years, give or take…A 20% cost-learning factor, with 2.2 year doubling time has such a powerful effect on prices that it’s hard for humans to grasp. If it continues, then by 2030, solar PV will be around a third of the cost it is today. There will be nothing to compete with solar PV in almost any country in the world…[and] PV solar even at its current efficiency levels is easily capable of supplying the world’s long-term energy demands (best-guess, around 30TW) and can do so using less than 1% of the land area we have available…[Short-term energy storage can come from, including compressed air, flow batteries, pumped hydro, and even esoteric technologies like super-capacitors. But the most likely storage option in the near term is good old lithium-based batteries…When you have a massive surplus of PV power (summer), you run electrolyzers to produce hydrogen from water…[The Sabatier reaction] combines hydrogen with carbon dioxide to make natural gas…[which we already store cost-effectively]…” click here for more
