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:

    BP Finds Emissions Up, Calls For More New Energy

    'Unsustainable path': Energy emissions rise at fastest rate in seven years

    Madeleine Cuff, 13 June 2019 (BusinessGreen)

    “…[Oil giant BP’s annual report] calculates carbon emissions grew by two per cent in 2018, the fastest rate of growth since 2011…[T]he uptick was largely driven by extreme weather pushing up demand for heating and cooling…An ‘unusually large number’ of hot and cold days pushed up demand [more than 5%] for natural gas…Global coal consumption also rose 1.4 per cent…[Even if these weather effects are short-lived, the world is on an unsustainable path, BP concluded. The] longer carbon emissions continue to rise, the harder and more costly will be the eventual adjustment to net zero carbon emissions…The stark warning came despite near-record rates of new renewables deployment, with renewable energy sources the largest source of new electricity generation worldwide for the third year in a row.

    China was once again the largest contributor to renewables' growth, with new generation in the country outstripping the entire OECD…[The US had] the largest-ever annual production increases by any country for both oil and natural gas…The figures provide a bleak contrast to rising public concern over climate change…BP and the wider oil industry have faced fierce criticism for investing a relatively small proportion of their capital expenditure in clean technologies and lobbying against more ambitious climate policies…[but a number of oil majors, including BP, have recently responded to investor pressure with] new emissions targets and stepped up their interests in low carbon infrastructure such as renewables, CCS, and electric vehicle charging…” click here for more
