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.

    Globalization 4.0 And Climate Change

    Globalization 4.0 will help us tackle climate change. Here’s how

    Klaus Schwab, 14 January 2019 (World Economic Forum)

    “…Climate change – arguably humanity’s most existential challenge – requires urgent global action…[E]nvironmental crises – notably a failure to tackle climate change – are among the likeliest and highest-impact risks that the world faces over the next decade. Indeed, 2018 saw record levels of costs due to extreme weather events… [October’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on the Impacts of Global Warming at 1.5°C concluded] we have just 12 years to act if dangerous climate change is to be avoided…[But the] urgent scientific message on climate change finds it hard to cut through the news cycle and the competing agendas of our ever more complex world. The effects of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on the economy, employment and national security, for example, capture much of the attention…Rising uncertainties about the future of jobs and growth are forcing many politicians to turn inward for quick fixes to domestic insecurities, rather than lean outward to cooperate on more complex global issues such as climate change…

    …[The good news is that many studies show that] shifts in our economy are not only possible, but will also create jobs and secure better growth for the future…[T]o make this transition happen, a new combination of action is required. This will include, for example, building new forms of alliances within and between the private and public sectors; forging new clubs of like-minded governments, cities, states and provinces; and building new leadership platforms for policy experimentation and public-private action, each targeted to suit different industrial, national and regional agendas…With the rapid technological advances of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we will also be able to harness new means of monitoring, verifying and reporting the progress (or lack thereof) of global, regional and industry actions on climate, potentially through radical new forms of distributed information transparency and real-time disclosures…[and] heighten the pressure to act…” click here for more
