Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

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.

    New Research Shows New Energy Is The Answer

    State-of-the-art climate model shows how we can solve crisis

    January 21, 2019 (PhysOrg)

    “…[A]fter two years of research and modelling, scientists have come up with a groundbreaking new framework for achieving – and even beating – the target of limiting warming to 1.5°C…[and turning back climate change’s devastating] ever-rising sea levels, extreme storms, prolonged droughts and intensified bushfires…[Researchers at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), the German Aerospace Center and the University of Melbourne, funded by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF) One Earth initiative, found] a transition to 100% renewable energy and strong measures to protect and restore our natural ecosystems, taken together, can deliver a more stable climate within a single generation…[The research] produced the most detailed energy model to date – and the first to achieve negative emissions through natural climate solutions.

    Its proposed transition to 100% renewables by mid-century, along with steps such as reforestation, would not only have benefits for the climate but would also create millions of permanent jobs…[with] about a quarter of the cost of current subsidies for fossil fuels…The research models 72 regional energy grids in hourly increments through 2050 and includes a comprehensive assessment of available renewable resources such as wind and solar, along with configurations for meeting projected energy demand and storage most efficiently for all sectors over the next 30 years…[Nearly all previous] models have relied upon technologies that are expensive and not proven to work at scale…This model is the first to achieve the required negative emissions through natural climate solutions, including the restoration of degraded forests and other lands, along with a transition to 100% renewable energy by mid-century…” click here for more
