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 Global Trends Shaping Our Climate Future

    “…[Energy policies the world’s nations] currently have on their books could cause global greenhouse gas emissions to continue rising for the next 20 years…[because the] appetite for energy keeps surging, and the rise of renewables so far hasn’t been fast enough to satisfy all that extra demand…[and] fossil fuels use, particularly natural gas, keeps growing…[1: Renewables] will surpass coal as the world’s dominant source of electricity by 2030…[but it will be extremely difficult for the world to rapidly reduce its greenhouse gas emissions unless existing coal] plants are run less frequently, retired early or retrofitted with technology to capture their carbon dioxide pollution…[2: Offshore wind will] increase ninefold by 2040…

    …[3:Purchases of electric cars will accelerate worldwide, allowing global gasoline and diesel use for cars to] peak by the mid-2020s…[but if the world’s love affair with S.U.V.s continues,] it could wipe out much of the oil savings from the nascent electric-car boom…[4: Countries] can also curb their emissions by improving the energy efficiency of their factories, homes and vehicles through policies like building codes and fuel economy standards…[But, in] 2018, the energy intensity of the global economy, a measure of efficiency, improved by just 1.2 percent, one of the slowest rates in years…[5: Finally, if] Africa pursues the same fossil-fuel heavy path to development that China did, greenhouse gas emissions could rise considerably…” click here for more
