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.

    U.S. Emissions Went The Wrong Way In 2018

    Preliminary US Emissions Estimates for 2018

    January 8, 2019 (Rhodium Group)

    “…US carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions rose…by 3.4% in 2018. This marks the second largest annual gain in more than two decades…surpassed only by 2010 when the economy bounced back from the Great Recession. While a record number of coal-fired power plants were retired last year, natural gas not only beat out renewables to replace most of this lost generation but also fed most of the growth in electricity demand. As a result, power sector emissions overall rose by 1.9%. The transportation sector held its title as the largest source of US emissions for the third year running, as robust growth in demand for diesel and jet fuel offset a modest decline in gasoline consumption…

    …The buildings and industrial sectors also both posted big year-on-year emissions gains. Some of this was due to unusually cold weather at the start of the year…[but the sectors have made limited progress in] decarbonization strategies…[Energy-related US emissions peaked in 2007 and dropped an average 1.6% per year through 2015…Since 2016, the pace of US emissions decline has slowed, from 2.7% in 2015 to 1.7% in 2016 to 0.8% in 2017…[which risks] putting the US emissions reduction goal under the Paris Agreement — a 26-28% cut below 2005 levels by 2025 – out of reach…” click here for more
