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.

    What Will Climate Change’s Hiroshima Be?

    Hiroshima, Kyoto, and the Bombs of Climate Change

    Bill McKibben, April 27, 2018 (The New Yorker)

    “…Hiroshima has a special grip on the planet’s consciousness…[It] has become symbolic shorthand for the nuclear horror that still haunts humanity…It’s not as if we have solved the nuclear issue, but at least we understand that it is a crisis…[With climate change, the] explosion of a billion pistons inside a billion cylinders every minute of every day just doesn’t induce the same tremble…Scientists estimate that, each day, our added emissions trap the heat equivalent of four hundred thousand Hiroshima-sized bombs, which is why the Arctic has half as much ice as it did in the nineteen-eighties, why the great ocean currents have begun to slow, why we see floods and storms and fires in such sad proportion…

    [The most important explanation is probably that the fossil-fuel industry] has spent billions of dollars defending the precise practices now wrecking the planet…[Their disinformation and lobbying campaigns] have been spectacularly effective… Every single day, climate change is the most important thing happening on the planet—there’s nothing even remotely close…[And unlike the more dramatic headline grabbing events, climate change is the one problem that comes with an absolute time limit because past a certain point] it won’t have a solution…Perhaps the free-falling price of solar and wind power will be enough to spur the necessary transition…[But without a Hiroshima moment to make us acknowledge reality,] it’s possible that as a species we’ll slide straight into a new, hotter, more desperate world…” click here for more
