    QUICK NEWS, August 21: Fossil Fuel-Powered Cars No More; Now Is The Time To Demand Action

    Now Is The Time To Demand Action Facing the real problem of climate change

    Editorial, August 21, 2018 (The Orange County Register)

    “…[Among those who agree human-caused global warming is happening, the footnote has been the understanding that no individual weather event or catastrophe is caused by the overall temperature rise…[but climate change] is without a doubt a culprit in the suddenly year-round fire danger we face…[R]esearchers at Columbia University and the University of Idaho showed that human-caused warming had dried out our forests so much that fire seasons throughout the West have expanded by an average of nine days every year since 2000…It’s only human to lament the lost opportunities, the fact that responsible scientists warned us two decades ago that this would come to pass if we didn’t halt the rise in greenhouse-gas production…But humans have faced existential threats before...Now is the time to not give into despair but to lobby our leaders, and governments around the world, telling them to stop sticking their heads in the (hot) sand, believe the science and begin a technical approach to reversing the real problem humans have brought to our planet.” click here for more

    Emily Atkin, August 20, 2018 (The New Republic)

    “…Changing the way we power our homes and businesses is certainly important…[but] the only way to achieve the necessary, aggressive emissions reductions to combat global warming is to overhaul the gas-powered automobile and the culture that surrounds it…[Cars and trucks account for nearly one-fifth of all U.S. emissions…[and the U.S. transportation sector—which includes cars, trucks, planes, trains, ships, and freight—produces nearly thirty percent of all US global warming emissions ...[In 2017, as a result of coal plant closures,] the country’s greenhouse gas emissions decreased as a whole…[but] the transportation industry’s emissions increased by 2.3 percent…[The cultural love of cars and the political influence of the automotive industry have] so far prevented the public pressure necessary to provoke widespread change…[To do that, cars must be] charged with electricity…[and] the electricity that powers those cars must be renewable…” click here for more
