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.

    New Energy Is California’s Wildfire Solution

    California's response to record wildfires: shift to 100% clean energy; California’s Democratic leaders are determined to fight the climate change that’s ravaging their state

    Dana Nucitelli, 3 September 2018 (UK Guardian)

    "…[California– the country’s most populous and economically powerful state – has been a welcome exception to national political leaders who overlook of evidence-based policy solutions and instead] aggravate existing problems or create new ones…[In response to record drought and wildfires, exacerbated by global warming, state leaders enacted] SB 100, which amps up the target to 50% renewables by 2026, 60% by 2030, and 100% from “renewable energy resources and zero-carbon resources” by 2045…[T]he state is now ahead of its targets, with 29% of electricity last year generated from renewables and over 50% from zero-carbon sources (including nuclear and hydroelectric power)…

    …[Climate change impacts are expected to] continue to batter the state…[The snowpack water supply] is expected to decline two-thirds by 2050…Heatwaves in cities could cause 2–3 times more deaths by 2050…[Wildfire average burn areas] will increase by as much as 77% by 2100…31–67% of Southern California beaches may completely erode by 2100…$17.9 billion worth of residential and commercial buildings could be inundated statewide by sea level rise by 2050…California has long been a leader in climate solutions. The state is home to nearly half of all electric vehicles in the country (over 350,000)…uses the least electricity per capita of any state, has a carbon cap and trade system, and a thriving economy…California is also leading the way in fighting the Trump administration’s backwards climate policy rollback…[But a new study found that local climate action is insufficient, which makes it more important to replace] the current Republican leadership and its platform of climate denial with a Democratic leadership like California’s.” click here for more
