Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Money For New Energy Research Within Reach

    The climate change policy with the most potential is the most neglected; Public clean energy R&D is overlooked and underfunded.

    David Roberts, July 11, 2019 (VOX)

    “…[Technology for the New Energy transition needed to beat the climate crisis] will require researching and developing new products and services, especially in fossil fuel-intensive industries like concrete- and steel-making that have largely been neglected…[Those calling for more R&D have long been] pitted in an utterly unconstructive battle against those calling for more deployment of existing clean energy technologies…We are doing nowhere near as much as we should of either one…[New research shows donating for R&D is more effective than impact investing and the most effective donating is to] the Clean Energy Innovation program at the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation(ITIF), a US think tank

    …[The core argument for public spending on clean energy R&D] comes in four parts…1) Emission reduction in emerging economies matters most…2) Thus, “the best climate policies are those that stimulate clean energy innovation.”…3) Public R&D creates the most spillover…[and] 4) Public R&D is woefully neglected but politically tractable…Just $22 billion a year is spent globally on clean energy R&D. That is a pittance — a drop in the bucket of the $600 billion in annual military spending in the US alone…[A]ny advanced economy could substantially, and unilaterally, increase that number…[Many countries could eliminate] production-based emissions entirely and it would scarcely make a dent in global emissions, whereas, for a tiny fraction of the cost, [they] could unilaterally double the global clean energy R&D budget and stimulate far more innovation, with arguably greater impact…” click here for more
