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:

    Oil And New Energy

    Green Energy’s $10 Trillion Revolution Faces Oil Crash Test

    Akshat Rathi (w/Ewa Krukowska and Laura Millan Lombrana), March 9, 2020 (Bloomberg News)

    “…Some $1.2 trillion has been poured into renewable energy, and global electric vehicle sales reached 2 million last year. Bloomberg NEF expects as much as $10 trillion poured into clean energy by 2050…[The Paris agreement and the environment movement have shaped] politics from Germany to India…[The Saudi Arabia-Russia oil price war looks] like the major oil-producing nations reasserting their supremacy but] may prove to be another step in a longer-term trend toward ending oil’s power…The price of a barrel of oil remains an important economic indicator…[But it may be overtaken by] the imperative to combat global warming…Oil’s fall to [near $30/barrel] has major implications for addressing climate change. Low prices incentivize more use of oil; it squeezes the budgets of oil companies, putting clean-energy projects in doubt; and some governments feel pressured to prop up struggling oil companies. All that drives up emissions, which is bad news for global warming…

    …[But] if low prices are sustained this time, there might be big positives for fighting climate change…Renewable energy is a more mature industry…[It has attracted big investors while] oil exploration is becoming less viable economically, with an increased risk that even those projects that go ahead no longer yield good returns and with worries about stranded assets growing...[A number of large investors have come together] to demand companies put sustainability at the heart of their business models, and that isn’t likely to change…[Low oil prices offer one reason] to end fossil-fuel subsidies or to raise taxes on consumption of fossil fuels…[Some of the money can be] diverted to renewable-energy subsidies…” click here for more
