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, July 18: How Fear Drives Climate Change Denial; How The President Misunderstands Wind; A Truly Doable Solar Vision

    How Fear Drives Climate Change Denial Surrendering to fear brought us climate change denial and President Trump; I propose that people take indefensible positions like climate denial and Trump support simply out of fear

    John Abraham, 17 July 2017 (UK Guardian)

    “…What continually befuddles people who work on climate change is the vehement and indefensible denial of evidence by a small segment of the population…I find [denialist arguments] fall into a few broad categories. Some of them are just plain false…like: There was a halt to global warming starting 1998…Humans are only responsible for a tiny fraction of the greenhouse gases…Scientists are colluding to create this fraud…Others are not false but are completely irrelevant. For example: Climate is always changing…We didn’t have thermometers a million years ago to measure global temperatures…Cities are hotter than their surroundings…[I am convinced the vast majority of people] are not intentionally being incorrect…In a sane world, everyone would understand the threat of climate change and our ability to take meaningful action…[The reason they don’t isn’t religion, political ideology, lack of scientific knowledge, politics, or tribal identification. It] is fear…of what happens if they accept reality…” click here for more

    How The President Misunderstands Wind Trump's Comments On Hillary And Putin: He Clearly Doesn't Understand The Value Of Wind Energy

    Peter Kelly-Detwiler, July 12, 2017 (Forbes)

    “…[The president recently talked about the energy sector, which he does not seem to] understand…Energy markets are often complicated and sometimes subtle, with many interactions…[The president said that under Democrat policies] energy would be much more expensive…[He said wind power would drive energy prices up but coal and fracking of natural gas would ‘get energy prices low’ and allow the U.S. to be an energy exporter…[But the fact is that wind energy is already cost-competitive and getting cheaper. Also, more] electricity from wind could free up natural gas for export while making America more energy independent…[The president] is simply wrong about wind…Excel CEO Ben Fowke recently said] the utility is investing in wind because it will] result in $7.9 billion of customer savings over 30 years…” click here for more

    A Truly Doable Solar Vision Here's Elon Musk's Plan to Power the U.S. on Solar Energy; "The sun is a giant fusion reactor in the sky."

    Nick Lucchesi, July 16, 2017 (Inverse)

    “…[To power the entire United States with solar panels 24/7, it would take a roughly 100 mile by 100 mile corner] of Nevada or Texas or Utah…[and a one square-mile space for batteries, Tesla CEO Elon Musk told the National Governors Association]…Currently, about 10 percent of energy in the U.S. is renewable…[His plan has three steps. First, it includes both rooftop solar] and utility-scale solar that can make up needs in other areas…[Second, wind, geothermal, hydro, probably some nuclear will be needed] to transition…[And, third, the power needs to be as local as possible] because it reduces infrastructure, like big power lines…” click here for more
