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 challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    Greening The Sahara With New Energy

    Renewable energy could green Sahara

    Liz Kalaugher, 7 September 2018 (PhysicsWorld)

    “Installing large amounts of wind and solar power in the Sahara Desert and neighbouring Sahel would increase local temperatures, rainfall and vegetation…[P]revious modelling studies showed large-scale wind and solar farms can produce significant climate change at continental scales…[This study was among the first to include modeling for] vegetation response…The simulated renewable energy plants would cover more than 9 million square km; the wind farms would generate an average of around 3 terawatts of electrical power and the solar farms around 79 terawatts…In 2017, the global energy demand was only 18 terawatts…Wind [and solar] farms warmed near-surface air temperatures in the region, the model showed, changing minimum, i.e. night-time, temperatures more than maximum temperatures…Precipitation also increased as much as 0.25 mm per day on average…” click here for more
