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:

    5 Steps Toward A Climate Crisis Solution

    Climate crisis – here’s what the experts recommend we do

    Hannah Hoag and Jack Marley, October 29, 2019 (The Conversation)

    “…The world is “waking up,” Greta Thunberg told world leaders at the recent UN Climate Action Summit. “And change is coming whether you like it or not.” To hold temperatures at 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels [the world has to be at net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and] global ambition would need to increase by a factor of five…[Five steps toward the solution include 1:] Task all government departments with a climate agenda so that they’re obligated to show how their policies will contribute to emissions cuts…[2:] Engage the public in developing climate strategies with citizens’ assemblies and involve workers in designing policy to ensure a “just transition” from carbon-intensive industries like coal mining…

    …[3:] Enact “symbolic policies” to set the investment climate and catalyse radical change – ban advertising for petrol cars for instance, or allow people to generate and sell renewable energy at home…[4:] Keep all remaining fossil fuels in the ground – ban oil and gas exploration and end the US$5.2 trillion spent on subsidising the fossil fuel industry each year…[5:] Set aside negative emission technologies – carbon capture and storage might play a role in absorbing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere in future, but they don’t exist at a meaningful scale yet. Relying on them distracts resources from cutting emissions now…” click here for more
