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:

    Zombie Fires, Mysterious Craters, And The Climate Crisis

    Zombie fires and other strange events are happening in the Arctic – here’s what you need to know

    Johnnie Wood, 2 October 2020 (World Economic Forum)

    “…Record-high Arctic carbon emissions in 2019 were eclipsed this year as summer fires helped push the region’s emissions more than a third higher still…Millions of acres of Russia’s Sakha Republic have been decimated by fire, as warming temperatures brought a summer wildfire season which started early [from fires smoldering zombie-like in the tundra’s peat] and combusted with unusual intensity, exacerbating the climate crisis…Climate change could also be behind the increase in cryovolcanism – the sudden and explosive appearance of vast craters – across parts of the Siberian tundra…Little is known about the series of at least nine giant craters that have been found in the Yamal peninsula…

    ...[but] gases, chiefly methane, accumulate in the upper layers of permafrost [as a result of extreme summer heat and, over] time, the intense pressure build-up is strong enough to burst through the frozen ground to form a crater, at the same time releasing methane emissions into the atmosphere…Higher temperatures have [also caused an almost 39% reduction in sea ice since 1980]… In the Antarctic region, sea ice has shrunk by more than 6%...[These changes] are inviting keen interest from shipping, mining and other commercial sectors, which could exacerbate the climate crisis.” click here for more
