While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, the administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Therefore, until November 2020, the NewEnergyNews theme song:

    New Energy Policies Work

    Renewable energy policies actually work; Countries where emissions dropped push conservation and switching power sources.

    John Timmer, February 26, 2019 (Ars Technica)

    “For most of the industrial era, a nation's carbon emissions moved in lock step with its economy. Growth meant higher emissions….[But over the past decade or so, as] the global economy continued to grow, carbon emissions remained flat or dropped a bit…[In 18 countries where emissions declined 2.4% between 2005 and 2015, half] of this drop came from lowering the percentage of fossil fuels used, with renewables making a large contribution…[and 35%] came from a drop in energy use. But the most significant factor varied from country to country…[In a low economic growth control group, total energy use accounted for 75% of the change, and in a high economic growth control group, total energy use accounted for 80%] of the change…

    ...[But total energy use is likely] only part of the answer…[T]he countries in the group that saw declining emissions had an average of 35 policies that promoted renewable energy and another 23 that promoted energy efficiency…Both of those numbers are significantly higher than the averages for the control groups…[And the] number of pro-efficiency policies correlated with the drop in energy use, while the number of renewable policies correlated with the drop in the share of fossil fuels…[Though not conclusive and determinative, the] evidence is clearly consistent with the idea that pro-renewable and efficiency policies work…” click here for more
