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.

    Which Baby To Save

    Hold your breath: a song of climate change

    Bob Hicok poem selected and introduced by Pulitzer Prize winner Rita Dove, August 23, 2018 (NY Times)

    “…[T]he excuses for inaction in Bob Hicok’s parable of environmental greed rapidly rise to a rousing chorus of denial. W.H.

    cut down anyone

    who cuts down a tree,

    paint our Jesuses

    green, we’ll grow wings, we’ll go

    to the moon. Soon.
