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:

    Six Keys To The Energy Transition

    Climate crisis: six steps to making fossil fuels history

    Stephen Peake, December 3, 2019 (The Conversation)

    “…[T]he 3-4℃ warmer world we’re headed for would be far more painful, costly and disruptive than any short-term costs or inconvenience we face from taking rapid, bold action…Here are six steps to decarbonizing…[1] We could power the planet two times over with the energy we waste burning fossil fuels each and every day…[2] We waste energy because it’s far too cheap. Prices are key to changing behaviour and investment decisions. We need to raise the price of fossil fuels so that polluters pay…[3] Our private car culture has devastating impacts on society and the planet – even if they’re electric…[Free public transport] can change the travel patterns of every generation to come…

    …[4] Many clothes are made with fabric so thin that they only last a few months, while electronics are often designed to fail after a few years… We need strong new regulations based on life cycle analysis that prevent companies from selling substandard stuff in search of profit…[5] The livestock industry currently accounts for about 15% of global emissions…[Meat, aquaculture, eggs, and dairy use 83% of the world’s farmland, despite providing only 37% of our protein and 18% of our calories...[W]e can shift to a diet rich in vegetables and grains…[6] We must be clear in our demands for a new low-carbon political economy that makes fossil fuels history and renewable energy the future.” click here for more
