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:

    Where To See The Climate Crisis In The U.S. Now

    The Climate Crisis Is Not Evenly Distributed, But It's Already Here; A new report details which areas of the United States are already undergoing the most serious change.

    Charles P. Pierce, August 14, 2019 (Esquire)

    “…[T]he most extreme consequences [and impacts] of the climate crisis are already here in the United States…Alaska is the fastest-warming state in the country, but Rhode Island is the first state in the Lower 48 whose average temperature rise has eclipsed 2 degrees Celsius…[Because of higher winter temperatures, other] parts of the Northeast — New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine and Massachusetts — trail close behind…[The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that if Earth heats up by an average of 2 degrees Celsius, virtually all the world’s coral reefs will die; retreating ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica could unleash massive sea level rise; and summertime Arctic sea ice, a shield against further warming, would begin to disappear]…

    Scientists do not completely understand the Northeast hot spot. But fading winters and very warm water offshore are the most likely culprits…[C]limate change is a cycle that feeds on itself…Warmer winters mean less ice and snow cover…[As they] retreat, the ground absorbs the solar radiation and warms…[I]n every Northeast state except Pennsylvania, the temperatures of the winter months of December through February have risen by 2 degrees Celsius since 1895-1896…

    …[I]ce breaks up in New England lakes nine to 16 days earlier than in the 19th century…[B]eaches are disappearing in Rhode Island…And the ripple effects of a warmer planet shake entire ecosystems…[On lake’s warmer]water has resulted in an algae bloom that's made swimming in the lake impossible…[Warmer temperatures have spurred [the southern pine] beetle’s migration north, where it has damaged more than 20,000 acres of the state’s Pine Barrens, a vast coastal forested plain that Congress has defined as a national reserve…The crisis is here, now.” click here for more
