    QUICK NEWS, May 7: Climate Change By Any Other Name Is A Crisis; New Energy Is Winning In The Marketplace

    Climate Change By Any Other Name Is A Crisis Call it a Climate Crisis

    May 1. 2019 (The Action Network)

    “We need television news to call the climate crisis exactly what it is: a climate crisis…In 2018, only 3.5% of national television news segments that mentioned climate change referred to it as a crisis or emergency…Words matter. When networks consistently fail to treat climate change as a crisis or emergency, they unwittingly enable complacency and inaction…It’s long past time for the media to call the climate crisis what it is—and to cover it with the regularity, focus, and depth that an urgent, existential threat merits…

    …[The Action Network wants viewer to email ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and NBC, asking them to use the term climate crisis because] when lethal heatwaves are the new normal, it’s a crisis. When stronger storms force millions from their homes over and over again, it’s a crisis. When kids walk out of school so adults will see their future’s at stake, it’s a crisis…[TV’s coverage] doesn’t match the reality…In 2018, less than 4 percent of news segments spoke of climate change’s impacts as a ‘crisis’ or ‘emergency’…[And too few segments make the connection between disasters like supercharged hurricanes and wildfires] to the greenhouse gases and climate change behind them…[Networks] can jump start a global conversation on how we solve this crisis.

    New Energy Is Winning In The Marketplace Prices of renewable energy sources plummeted between 2009 and 2017

    Ben Geman, April 9, 2019 (Axios)

    “The International Monetary Fund's annual World Economic Outlook…[shows] why wind and solar power are growing so fast in power markets…[The levelized cost of electricity from different forms of zero-carbon power] is the all-in comparison of the costs of building, running, supplying and maintaining facilities over time…Between 2009 and 2017, the installed price for utility-scale solar fell 76% and the installed price of onshore wind fell 34%,] making these energy sources competitive alternatives to fossil fuels and more traditional low-carbon sources…

    Today renewables account for about 25% of global power generation…Hydropower has the largest share, but cost declines are helping wind and solar gain ground, with solar overtaking hydro in about a decade…” click here for more
