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.

    The State Of The Global Climate Fight

    Climate Change Performance Index: Not enough countries prove political will to prevent dangerous climate change; Global CO2 emissions are rising again / Sweden and Morocco leading countries, Morocco with significant expansion of renewable energy / Eight of the G20-countries perform very low - USA and Saudi Arabia at the bottom of the index

    December 10, 2018 (GermanWatch)

    “After three consecutive years of stable CO2 emissions, emissions are rising again…[F]ew countries have started to implement strategies to limit global warming…[according to the Climate Change Performance Index 2019 (CCPI)]… While there is a continued growth and competitiveness of renewable energy, especially in countries that had low shares before, the CCPI shows a lack of political will of most governments to phase out fossil fuels with the necessary speed…The gap [is widening] between current emission levels and what is needed…The top three of the CCPI 2019 are still unoccupied, because none of the 56 countries or the EU are clearly on a well below 2°C pathway in their overall performance…

    …Sweden again leads the ranking (Rank 4), followed by Morocco that significantly increased its share of renewable energy capacity and has an ambitious national climate target. India moves to rank 11 as a result of an improved performance in renewable energy, comparatively low levels of per capita emissions and a relatively ambitious mitigation target for 2030. Germany falls again, from place 22 to place 27 and is now in the middle of medium-performing countries…China climbs to rank 33, being in the group of the medium-performing countries for the first time…[because] emissions started to increase again recently…In the group of very low performers we find almost half of the G20 countries, including Japan (49), Turkey (50), Russian Federation (52), Canada (54), Australia (55), Korea (57) and - at the bottom of the index - USA (59) and Saudi Arabia (60)…” click here for more
