    QUICK NEWS, March 4: Jay Inslee, The Climate Change Candidate For President; State New Energy Mandates Work

    Jay Inslee, The Climate Change Candidate For President Can Jay Inslee make the 2020 election about climate change?

    Paul Waldman, March 3, 2019 (Washington Post via Winston-Salem Journal)

    “Single-issue presidential campaigns are not generally successful, but what if the issue in question is the survival of most life on Planet Earth?...[Washington governor Jay Inslee is making climate change the centerpiece of his] 2020…That kind of clear vision may not be enough to win, but it's something you can't win without…[Inslee has been] a state representative, had a lengthy term in Congress, and] then was elected and reelected as governor…[His vision] is an administration organized around the climate crisis, an entire federal government working in unison to decarbonize the economy and help save the planet…

    …[Inslee also wants to get rid of the filibuster and the electoral college and] supports statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico…[With Inslee in the race and the practical realities of climate change becoming more evident on an almost daily basis,] it's going to become harder for the other candidates not to put out comprehensive climate plans and demonstrate that commitment…[Most other candidates] haven't yet made their purpose as clear…[but Inslee is] telling us exactly what his presidency would be about. We don't know yet how compelling his case will be and how primary voters will react…but the race is definitely better for having him in it.” click here for more

    State New Energy Mandates Work Updated renewable portfolio standards will lead to more renewable electricity generation

    Richard Bowers, February 27, 2019 (U.S. Energy Information Administration)

    As of the end of 2018, 29 states and the District of Columbia (DC) had renewable portfolio standards (RPS), polices that require electricity suppliers to supply a set share of their electricity from designated renewable resources or eligible technologies. Although no additional states have adopted an RPS policy since Vermont in 2015, Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, California, and the District of Columbia extended their existing targets in 2018 or early 2019, continuing a trend in recent years across the United States…States with legally binding renewable portfolio standards collectively accounted for 63% of electricity retail sales in the United States in 2018…

    In addition to the 29 states with binding RPS policies, 8 states have nonbinding renewable portfolio goals…[In May 2018, Connecticut increased its overall RPS target in May 2018 to a 48% renewable generation share of electricity sales by 2030…[and] New Jersey increased its RPS target to 50% of eligible generation share of sales by 2030…In August 2018, Massachusetts increased its overall RPS target to 35% of sales by 2030…In September 2018, California increased its RPS target to a 60% renewable generation share of sales by 2030 and an additional 40% generation share of sales of carbon-free resources by 2045, for a total of 100% carbon-free power by 2045…In January 2019, the District of Columbia (DC) increased its RPS target to a 100% renewable share of sales by 2040…” click here for more
