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.

    QUICK NEWS, March 18: What Students Striking About Climate Change Want; Clean Versus Renewable In The New Energy Transition

    What Students Striking About Climate Change Want Global Climate Strike: Students around the world protest climate inaction; Here's why these young climate activists are striking

    Harmeet Kaur and Madison Park, March 15, 2019 (CNN)

    “Young climate activists are hoping to spark a widespread dialogue about climate change…And they're concerned about the inaction on this front…If human-generated greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current rate, the planet will reach 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels as soon as 2030…[According to a 2018 report from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), warming] at that temperature would put the planet at a greater risk of events like extreme drought, wildfires, floods and food shortages for hundreds of millions of people…

    The common demand among students, although they vary country-to-country, is for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions…[According to the Youth Climate Strike website, U.S. students want] a national embrace of the Green New Deal…an end to fossil fuel infrastructure projects…[and] a national emergency declaration on climate change…

    …[They are also calling for a] mandatory education on climate change and its effects from K-8…a clean water supply…preservation of public lands and wildlife…[and for] all government decisions to be tied to scientific research…” click here for more

    Clean Versus Renewable In The New Energy Transition The devil's in the details: Policy implications of 'clean' vs. 'renewable' energy

    Lee Beck and Jennifer T. Gordon, March 14, 2019 (Utility Dive)

    “…Many of the proposed plans for confronting the climate crisis stress the imperative of decreasing emissions by transitioning to 100% "clean" or "renewable" sources of energy…The terms "clean" and "renewable" are often thought to be interchangeable…[but renewable] energy is derived from sources that can naturally replenish themselves — wind and sun are the two most obvious examples — while clean energy encompasses all zero-carbon energy sources…The clean energy or zero-carbon energy tent is wider; it not only leaves the door open to 100% renewables, but it also includes nuclear energy and the carbon-neutralizing impact of technologies like carbon capture and sequestration (CCS)…

    Hydrogen can be renewable if it is produced through electrolysis using renewables and water, or it can be produced from natural gas, coal, biomass and oil…Critics have pointed to a host of issues with some forms of clean energy; namely, questions abound regarding slow deployment of carbon capture technologies at a commercial level. Additionally, nuclear energy raises a number of concerns, from spent fuel storage and safety to non-proliferation…The differences between clean and renewable energy can have meaningful policy impacts…In the U.S., 38 states as well as the District of Columbia have some type of renewable portfolio standard (RPS)…If the standard includes other sources of clean energy, especially nuclear power to varying degrees, it can also be referred to as a Clean Energy Standard.” click here for more
