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.

    Voters Rejected Climate Change, New Energy Efforts

    The Energy 202: Climate change initiatives were on the ballot. They didn't fare well.

    Dino Grandoni, November 7, 2018 (Washington Post)

    “…[Voters] largely rejected ballot initiatives aiming to nudge the nation away from burning fossil fuels and toward harnessing renewable sources of energy…Voters in Arizona, one of the nation’s most sun-soaked states, handily shot down a measure that would have accelerated its shift toward generating electricity from renewables, particularly solar. Supporters and proponents poured an eye-popping amount of money, more than $54 million, into the fight over the future of energy in Arizona. Only two Senate races in the country — in Florida and Texas — saw more spending this year…

    Residents in oil- and gas-rich Colorado defeated a measure to sharply limit drilling on state-owned land…[Washington voters rejected] a statewide initiative that would have imposed a first-in-the-nation fee on emissions of carbon dioxide, the most prevalent of the greenhouse gases that drive global warming…[The failure of the ballot measures underscores the difficulty of tackling a global problem like climate change policy at the state and local level, as well as the huge sums of money any effort is likely to require from both sides.] One bright spot for environmental advocates came in Nevada, where voters [passed] a measure similar to the one Arizonans rejected. It would require utilities to generate 50 percent of their electricity from renewables by 2030…” click here for more
