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:

    Nearing The Tipping Point

    Climate crisis pushing Earth to a 'global tipping point,' researchers say

    Helen Regan, November 28, 2019 (CNN)

    The Earth is heading toward a "global tipping point" if the climate crisis continues on its current path…[Only urgent action can avoid ‘an existential threat to civilization,’ according to a commentary in the journal Nature because growing evidence suggests] irreversible changes to the Earth's environmental systems are already taking place…A global tipping point is a threshold when the planet's systems go beyond the point of no return -- such as the loss of the Amazon rainforest, accelerated melting of ice sheets, and thawing of permafrost…

    Such a collapse could lead to ‘hothouse’ conditions that would make some areas on Earth uninhabitable…[The research identified nine areas where] tipping points are already underway…Those include widespread destruction of the Amazon, reduction of Arctic sea ice, large-scale coral reef die-offs, melting of the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets, thawing of permafrost, destabilizing of boreal forests -- which contain vast numbers of trees that grow in freezing northern climes -- and a slowdown of ocean circulation…[T]hese events are interconnected and change in one will impact another, causing a worsening ‘cascade’ of crises…” click here for more
