NewEnergyNews: QUICK NEWS, July 9: Scientists Call On Media To Report The Crisis; The New Energy Transition Documented


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

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, July 9: Scientists Call On Media To Report The Crisis; The New Energy Transition Documented

    Scientists Call On Media To Report The Crisis Cover the climate crisis like it is one

    Dawn Stover, July 8, 2019 (Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists)

    “…[T]he Paris Agreement is obsolete. The temperature recently reached 113 degrees Fahrenheit in Paris, a city where many buildings don’t have air conditioning. In the United States, more than 70 medical groups urged political candidates ‘to recognize climate change as a health emergency.’…[And] the term ‘climate change’ is not only worn-out and boring, but also politically fraught…Many of the world’s largest news organizations simply aren’t telling the climate story with anything approaching the urgency and attention they devote to a glut of trivial subjects…[What is needed is] a well-funded commitment to publish more and better stories on one of the most important, life-threatening issues of our time…

    …[The UK Guardian newspaper and the Spanish-language network Telemundo have begun regularly] using the term ‘climate emergency’…Environmental groups have been pressuring other news organizations to follow suit. The Sierra Club, Greenpeace,, and others sent a June 6 letter urging the heads of Fox, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN to ‘call the dangerous overheating of our planet and the lack of action to stop it what it is—a crisis—and to cover it like one.’…[But the giant step is] covering the climate crisis like it is one…Even when there is an event that is obviously related to global warming, such as an extreme heat wave, media reports often fail to connect the dots…[A] genuine crisis merits an increase in both quantity and quality…” click here for more

    The New Energy Transition Documented FERC's Latest "Infrastructure" Report Includes Major Revisions In Its Three-Year Forecast: Significant Declines Anticipated For Fossil Fuels And Nuclear Power And Even More Dramatic Growth Projected For Enewable Energy - Notably Wind And Solar

    Ken Bossong, July 8, 2019, (Sun Day)

    “…[The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)] has dramatically revised its three-year forecast for changes in the U.S. electrical generating capacity mix. Sharp declines are foreseen for fossil fuels and nuclear power while accompanied by even stronger growth in renewable energy (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) than earlier projected…[Through May 31, data shows] ‘high probability additions’ and ‘retirements’ combined could result in effectively no growth in the generating capacity of fossil fuels (i.e., coal, natural gas, oil) and a net decline of over 7 gigawatts (GW) in nuclear capacity by June 2022. Meanwhile, led by wind and solar, the generating capacity of renewable energy sources is foreseen to grow by more than 45 GW…

    While natural gas generating capacity is projected to increase by 18,158 megawatts (MW), that is almost completely offset by a drop of 17,037 MW in coal's net generating capacity and a decline of 1,040 MW in oil's net generating capacity. Further, nuclear power is foreseen as dropping by 7,286 MW…[W]ind capacity is projected to grow by 26,889 MW and utility-scale solar by 16,302 MW. The other renewable sources would also increase: hydropower by 1,383 MW, biomass by 328 MW, and geothermal by 280 MW. Collectively, they would add 45,182 MW over the next three years…” click here for more
