    QUICK NEWS, November 5: The Climate Crisis Refugee Era Has Begun; More And More New Energy

    The Climate Crisis Refugee Era Has Begun California fires, rising seas: Millions of climate refugees will dwarf Dust Bowl by 2100; An environmental crisis in the early 1900s created 'Dust Bowl refugees.' Today's climate crisis is much bigger and will last for decades, not years.

    Rep. Yvette D. Clarke (D-NY) and NYU Professor Michael Shank, November 4, 2019 (USA Today)

    “…[C]limate refugees are people who are now forced to seek refuge from the life-threatening impacts of the climate crisis…Californians are the tip of the spear this fall…[Soon] everyone in America will know what a climate refugee is…[Due to sea-level rise,] as many as 13 million Americans are projected to become climate refugees by the end of this century…This is our new reality: Americans having to move from their homes to avoid the climate crisis and its worst impacts, whether that be sea-level rise, flooding, wildfires, hurricanes or droughts…[Hundreds of thousands of “Dust Bowl refugees were created by an environmental disaster, and what is happening now is] in response to a much bigger environmental crisis and one that will last for decades, not years…

    …[T]he Department of Housing and Urban Development has provided $48 million to move an entire community out of the Isle de Jean Charles in Louisiana to avoid coming climate impacts. And in Alaska, the village of Newtok recently secured more than $15 million to relocate households to safer ground…[At risk communities are investing billions in adaptive measures but we need a federal long-term, strategic assessment of our national preparedness and an action plan because the] climate crisis is upon us, whether we choose to recognize it or not…” click here for more

    More And More New Energy FERC’s Latest "Infrastructure" Report Reflects Major Changes In Its Three-Year Forecast: No New Coal Capacity; Net Reduction In Fossil Fuels; Significant Decline For Nuclear Power; Net New Wind And Solar Capacity More Than Doubles That Of Natural Gas

    Ken Bossong, November 4, 2019 (Sun Day)

    “…[In Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) U.S. electrical generating capacity revisions from earlier this year, sharp] declines are foreseen for fossil fuels and nuclear power while renewable energy (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) is forecast to experience even stronger growth than previously projected…[D]ata through August 31, 2019) indicates a net decline of [4,851 MW or] nearly five percent (4.56%) in nuclear capacity by August 2022…[New Energy] is foreseen to grow by more than 47 gigawatts (GW)…

    [N]et new natural gas generating capacity is projected to increase by 19,757 megawatts (MW)…[but]] that is more than offset by a drop of 18,957 MW in coal's net generating capacity and a decline of 3,016 MW in that of oil…[W]ind capacity is projected to grow by 27,659 MW and utility-scale solar by 17,857 MW. The other renewable sources would also increase: hydropower by 1,282 MW, biomass by 333 MW, and geothermal by 280 MW. Collectively, they would add 47,411 MW over the next three years. That is significantly more than double the projected growth in natural gas generating capacity…” click here for more
