    QUICK NEWS, December 17: Moms For Climate Action; Solar Will Fight On Against White House Disdain

    Moms For Climate Action The climate crisis is our responsibility, not our children’s

    Frida Berry Eklund and Yoca Arditi-Rocha, December 16, 2019 (South Florida Sun-Sentinel)

    “…For the past year, young people have been taking to the streets every Friday to fight for a secure and livable future…[M]ore than 7.6 million people from 185 countries took to the streets to demand action during the Global Climate Strike of Sept. 20–27…For parents, these climate strikes are both hopeful and heartbreaking. We are proud of our children for standing up to big and powerful governments, but it breaks our hearts to see our children so desperate for us to listen to the science that they are stepping out of their classrooms and into the streets to make themselves heard…

    If business as usual continues, our children will be living in a world that can’t feed itself and where billions are displaced, the air we breathe is toxic, the water we drink is contaminated and wildlife has been all but banished. Leaving a planet for our children with livable conditions should not be a partisan issue. It should be a basic human right…

    [T]he message from the youth is clear: Adults must act to protect their futures…This climate crisis has escalated throughout our lifetimes and it is our responsibility to solve it, not our children’s…We must put pressure on political leaders to make brave political decisions to completely de-carbonize our economies and reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050 at the latest. We must act like adults and take responsibility for our actions and put the needs of our children first…” click here for more

    Solar Will Fight On Against White House Disdain Industry Vows to Continue Fight for Pro-Solar Policies, Despite Missed Opportunity This Year

    December 17, 2019 (Solar Energy Industries Association)

    “…Congress and the White House were unable to agree on including an extension of the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) in an end of year tax package, meaning the credit will decrease at the end of this year. The measure also failed to include energy storage in the ITC. This represents a missed opportunity to take an achievable step to boost the economy, add jobs and reduce carbon emissions…

    The solar ITC is a proven way to generate tens of billions of dollars in private investment each year, while substantially reducing carbon emissions…[ Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association, promised to continue the] fight for meaningful policy, including provisions for clean energy storage in 2020…” click here for more
