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.

    Superheroes Would Be Super-CO2-Emitters

    Carbon Footprint of Superheroes

    Miles Traer, May 23, 2017 (Pop-Scientist At Large)

    The ‘best’ carbon footprint probably belongs to Superman or Swamp Thing. Superman’s footprint is equal to zero. Swamp Thing might actually have a negative carbon footprint; he’s taking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere…[Oracle/Barbara Gordon has ‘worst carbon footprint’ because she uses] a LOT of electricity to power her computers. The only other serious contender is the Flash, who requires tens-of-billions of calories per second to run at his absurd speeds…

    Yet, these analyses only look at total CO2e emissions. A more helpful metric might be the amount of CO2e released per unit of justice dispensed. Taking the total CO2e emissions per year and dividing by the number of yearly adventures…Oracle/Barbara Gordon still seems to have the worst carbon footprint while Superman and Swamp Thing still battle it out for the best carbon footprint…Spiderman, the Flash, Firebird, and Oracle/Barbara Gordon each release more CO2e per adventure than an average American releases per year…[If we just converted our coal power plants to solar or wind or even nuclear, superheroes] ranging from Batman to Jessica Jones to Spiderman could significantly reduce their carbon footprints...” click here for more
