The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

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:

    QUICK NEWS, April 16:Extinction Rebellion Joins The Climate Fight; Beating Climate Change With A New Energy Grid

    Extinction Rebellion Joins The Climate Fight Extinction Rebellion want to get arrested to fight climate change

    Stephanie Bailey, April 15, 2019 (CNN)

    “…Extinction Rebellion, a grassroots environmental group based in the UK, is responsible for a series of stunts that deliberately break the law to highlight the threat of climate change…[They stripped to underwear in the House of Commons' public gallery and held] a ‘Funeral for our Future’ outside Buckingham Palace…[It has provoked 222 arrests] and thousands have declared they are willing to be arrested, or even go to prison, to demand action on climate change…Extinction Rebellion claims their actions are based on research into how to use ‘non-violent civil disobedience to achieve radical change’ …[which includes] declaring a climate change emergency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025 and starting a citizen's assembly…

    According to the group, research shows that non-violent uprisings involving 3.5% of the public participating in acts of civil disobedience force a political response because they cannot be ignored…Almost 10,000 people worldwide have signed up as ‘willing to get arrested,’ as of April 8, 2019…[O]ver 80% are also ‘willing to go to prison’…[T]he UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned last year that the planet only has 11 years before it reaches disastrous levels of global warming…[Extinction Rebellion next plans to shut down London by blocking traffic at five locations and] playing music, hosting discussions and refusing to move from the street…” click here for more

    Beating Climate Change With A New Energy Grid New Study Confirms Benefits of Electrifying CA Buildings

    Pierre Delforge, April 15, 2019 (Natural Resources Defense Council)

    “…About half the pollution from California's buildings comes from burning [natural gas], primarily for heating and hot water…[Moving to heating and water with electricity generated by New Energy can] slash greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) from California's single-family homes by up to 90 percent within the next three decades, save consumers money in the process, and support the] state's ability to achieve its goal of carbon neutrality by 2045 [according to a new study from Energy+Environmental Economics]…That means outfitting new homes with high-efficiency, electric-powered heating systems and water heaters, and retrofitting existing homes when the old gas equipment needs replacing…

    …[New Energy] is getting cheaper than electricity from gas power plants…[Sustainably-produced renewable gas can play a role but it is in limited supply and has a higher] cost…[Full electrification would reduce greenhouse gas emissions in single-family homes by about 30 percent to 60 percent as soon as next year. As the carbon intensity of the grid decreases over time, the savings increase to about 80 percent to 90 percent by 2050…[For new construction, going all-electric will save] $130 to $540 per year…[87% of existing homes can save] by switching from a gas furnace and air conditioner to an electric heat pump system that provides both heating in winter and cooling in summer…[To achieve the state’s GHG reduction goals,] at least half of existing residential buildings, or more than 7 million homes, will require retrofits…[Policy drivers will be needed because that] is a huge task…” click here for more
