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 Right Climate Change Question Getting Climate Change Right: In Light Of The Stars

    Adam Frank, March 9, 2018 (National Public Radio)

    “…With the right question, we could finally see how the climate crisis looming over our fate is actually a harbinger. It's the signpost of a transition for humanity as a true planetary species…The right question, however, can only be seen in light of the stars…[In the popular consciousness, this question — "Did we change the Earth's climate?" — still] feeds off political polarization and tribal inclinations…[The right question is] "What else did we expect to happen?" …In light of the stars, meaning in light of what we've learned from the universe's many, many worlds (including our own), we can see that planetary climates are a kind of vast machine. They have their own rules based on physics and chemistry…Of course we triggered climate change. We've been using planetary-scale amounts of energy to build and maintain this amazing planetary-scale project of civilization. Of course the Earth noticed…Are we to join the universe's winners who met their climate challenge and moved forward — or will we fade away with the cosmic losers too stubborn to see the truth before their eyes?” click here for more

    New Energy Is Minnesota’s 2ND-Biggest Power Study: Renewable energy now Minnesota's 2nd-largest electricity source

    Elizabeth Dunbar, March 1, 2018 (Minnesota Public Radio)

    “Renewable energy is overtaking nuclear as Minnesota's second-largest source of electricity generation, while coal remains the largest source…Coal made up 39 percent of the energy Minnesota generated inside its borders in 2017. That percentage is expected to go down dramatically in the next decade after Xcel Energy retires a large portion of its Sherco coal plant in Becker…When hydroelectric was added to wind and solar generation in 2017, it surpassed what Xcel's two nuclear plants produced [according to a new report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance]. And while nuclear capacity is static, Minnesota has been adding new wind and solar capacity every year…Policy incentives for new solar energy facilities have been and will continue to be important to the growth of solar…Unlike solar, wind energy is at the point where it's cheaper than coal, even without subsidies. Natural gas prices also remain low…Minnesota is also importing less electricity from other states, thanks to the growth of wind and solar capacity.” click here for more

    NY To Put $1.4BIL Into New Energy NY Gov Cuomo Announces $1.4 Billion in Awards for 26 Large-Scale Renewable Energy Projects, the Largest Single Commitment to Renewable Energy by a State in U.S. History

    March 9, 2018 (Office of the NY Governor)

    “…[Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the single largest commitment to renewable energy by a state in U.S. history at $1.4 billion, which will advance 26 large-scale renewable energy projects across New York. The competitive awards, driven by the Governor's Clean Energy Standard mandate, are expected to generate enough clean, renewable energy to power more than 430,000 homes and create over 3,000 short- and long-term well-paying jobs. In the face of a concerted federal assault from Washington, New York is taking aggressive action…” click here for more
