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, November 18: Every Child Will Feel It; Tinder For New Energy

    Every Child Will Feel It The climate crisis will profoundly affect the health of every child alive today, report says

    Jen Christensen, November 13, 2019 (CNN)

    “…If the world continues to produce the same amount of carbon emissions, a child born today could be living in a world with an average temperature that's 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit (4 degrees Celsius) warmer by their 71st birthday, according to the medical journal The Lancet…[It] would be devastating for our health…A warmer world means more disease, famine, early death from natural disasters such as fire and heat waves, and more major mental health problems. Everyone will be affected, but the most vulnerable will be disproportionately threatened: children, the elderly, people with underlying health conditions and the poor…

    …[I]f the world takes bold action to curb carbon emissions, this dire future could be avoided…To limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, global greenhouse gas emissions have to be cut by at least 45% of 2010 levels by 2030. They had to get to net zero by 2050…A child born in London today would no longer use electricity generated by coal by their 6th birthday…A child born in France today wouldn't be driving a gas- or diesel-fueled car by their 21st birthday…[The world has yet to see a response from governments that matches the scale of the challenge, but China] is continuing to reduce its reliance on coal…Europe saw improvements in air pollution levels from 2015 to 2016…Globally, more people are driving electric cars…” click here for more

    Tinder For New Energy New study helps regions find their renewable energy soul mates

    Zoya Teirstein, October 29, 2019 (Grist)

    “…By looking at a number of variables in 10 regions across the U.S. and the costs and operational requirements of three types of renewables — utility-scale solar, rooftop solar, and wind power — [researchers have shown] which region stands to gain the most from which kind of renewable…[It is like a dating site] for geography and renewable energy compatibility…The Upper Midwest, Lower Midwest, Rocky Mountains, Northwest, and Great Lakes regions stand to experience the greatest reductions in CO2 by replacing coal with clean energy…In the Upper Midwest, the economic and health benefits of installing 3,000 megawatts of wind energy top $2.2 trillion, the highest out of any region…

    Solar is highly compatible with the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions, where it would produce $113 of economic and health benefit per megawatt-hour of electricity produced…California and the Southwest generally stand to gain the least from renewables, in part because those regions don’t have a lot of dirty fossil fuels to displace…[B]enefits of renewables outweigh the benefits of carbon capture and sequestration…Installing carbon capture technology on a coal plant, where it can stash away carbon before it’s released into the atmosphere, was about as cost-effective as installing renewables in many places in the U.S. — but that’s only when you’re comparing purely economic benefits…” click here for more
