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:

    EUROPE LOOKS TO 2050

    Start the road to 2050 with 30% domestic emission reductions
    8 March 2011 (World of Renewables)

    "The road to a low carbon economy in 2050…[according to] the European Commission…must start with an immediate increase in the EU's emissions reduction target.

    "Moving now to 30% domestic emissions reductions by 2020 (instead of today's 20% target), together with targets for 2030 is necessary to achieve the long-term goals set out in the 2050 roadmap,
    [EU Energy Policy to 2050; Achieving 80-95% emissions reductions from]
    the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA)."

    "The existing target is too low to meet the 2050 roadmap goals of limiting the global temperature rise to 2°Celsius and reducing domestic emissions by 80% by 2050…

    "The risk of an oil shock this year makes the transition to a low carbon economy even more urgent - and the European Wind Energy Association believes wind energy could meet 50% of Europe's electricity supply by 2050."

    "EWEA agrees that the Roadmap's proposal for a 93-99% cut in CO2 emissions in the power sector by 2050 is essential to achieve the 80% reduction in Europe's overall greenhouse gas emissions…

    "EWEA urges the European Commission to follow up the Roadmap with specific proposals for EU energy policy post 2020…"
