    QUICK NEWS, September 16: Things A President Who Cared Would Do About Climate; EVs Moving The Car Market

    Things A President Who Cared Would Do About Climate 15 things a president can actually do to tackle the climate crisis

    Zachary B. Wolf, September 4, 2019 (CNN)

    “…[Despite partisan differences, the climate crisis] is a worldwide issue, and solving it will take cooperation from countries like China and India…[T]he most important actions the US could take would require congressional approval, no easy task…Here are some things any president could do on Day One…1. Rejoin the Paris climate agreement…2. Declare a national emergency…3. Set a carbon-free goal…5. Set a zero-emission deadline for the US…6. Embrace energy-efficient light bulbs…7. Reinstate the Clean Power Plan…

    ...8. Reverse Trump's plan to speed up oil and gas pipelines…9. Reimpose a moratorium on coal sales from public lands…10. Stop trying to push coal altogether…11. Undo Trump's efforts to increase offshore oil drilling…12. Accelerate production of renewable energy on public lands…13. Use the SEC to scrutinize banks and investors for climate risks…14. Tap into growing public sentiment and work with corporations…15. Finally, get Congress on board…” click here for more

    EVs Moving The Car Market Electric cars are finally taking a (tiny) bite out of combustion engine sales

    Michael J. Coren, September 14, 2019 (Quartz)

    California’s car buyers are [slowly] shifting their loyalties from the internal combustion engine to electric batteries…Despite car sales declining in the Golden State since 2016, the number of electric and hybrid cars sold continues to rise. In the first half of 2019, sales hit 51,750 and 48,861, respectively. That’s a 40% increase for both over last year…[EVs of various kinds accounted for 13% of 2018 sales in California. It] plans to have 5 million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2030 and accounted for about half of the 105,472 electric cars sold in the US in the first half of the year…

    [Automakers are] banking on explosive EV growth to justify their billions of dollars in new investments…[But growth] in EV sales has been anemic in most states (just under 1% of US new-car sales on average), and modest but steady only in those with generous incentives and eager customers such as New York and California…[Tesla’s Model 3] has proven to be a best-seller, outpacing standard sedans in its class such from the likes of BMW or Mercedes, and rocketing beyond the rest of the field…[It remains to be seen whether] other automakers can conjure the same magic…” click here for more
