NewEnergyNews

Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

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:

    The Climate Crisis This Year

    [Large-scale, system-wide actions] are being taken by countries around the world...[Canada] has a federal price on carbon and re-elected the party that introduced it...The United Kingdom has (at least temporarily) imposed a moratorium on fracking. Finland is phasing out coal and it will be banned by 2029. Norway’s sovereign wealth fund is divesting from companies dedicated to oil and gas exploration. Ireland became the first country in the world to divest from fossil fuels entirely...

    New Zealand has committed to being carbon neutral by 2050, and Scotland by 2045...[N]early 70% of Scotland’s electricity is already green...[and] expansion of carbon neutrality goals across more of the U.S. states...[There is also increasing media coverage] of the climate crisis...[but a discouraging] lack of progress on policy issues...[and an even more discouraging tendency of increased popular awareness turning into fear, judgment,] and attacking each other..." click here for more
