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.

    Geo-Engineering Won’t Stop The World's Climate From Changing

    Future technology ‘cannot rescue’ mankind from climate change, say experts; Plans to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere have 'limited potential' to keep global warming below target limits, and nations must instead focus on reducing emissions, according to a new report

    Josh Gabbatiss, February 1, 2018 (UK Independent)

    “…Technologies that remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere have been singled out as a major component in the struggle to keep the global temperature rise below the 2C decided in the Paris climate agreement…Negative emissions technologies include directly sucking carbon dioxide out of the air, and collecting it as it is released from fuel combustion…Another, less high-tech method is simply planting more trees to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere…[Without these measures, there is a ‘very high risk’ of not keeping warming below a 1.5C rise above pre-industrial times, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), but a new scientific study argues] that such technologies should not be elevated at the expense of efforts to minimise emissions…[Though] some of the technologies for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere may have a role to play in reducing climate change, all have drawbacks that mean it will be difficult to use them at the very large scale that would be necessary to make a real difference…Other researchers acknowledged the importance of the reality check provided by the report, but noted the continued importance of research into negative emissions technologies…” click here for more
