Cleveland Is Latest City To Pledge To Go 100% Renewable

This is always amusing, because it’s pretty much impossible to do any time soon. Perhaps in the future we’ll be able to do this (I expect sometime beyond our lifetimes it will occur), but, renewables won’t be able to run city hall, much less the massive stadium the Cleveland Browns play at

100% Renewable Energy: Cleveland Sets a Big Goal as It Sheds Its Fossil Fuel Past

Cleveland, Ohio, which has worked for years to reinvent itself as it sheds its industrial past, has become the latest major city to announce plans to shift to 100 percent renewable electricity.

The plan stands out in a state that in recent years has been more inclined to roll back clean energy rules than strengthen them, and in a territory served by FirstEnergy, which has been a leading burner of fossil fuels.

City officials announced the 100 percent renewable power target Thursday as they released an update to Cleveland’s climate action plan, which aims to reduce greenhouses gases to 80 percent below the 2010 level by 2050.(snip)

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said in a letter introducing the report that local leadership on climate is needed more than ever since President Trump announced he was pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement.

“This plan is about much more than climate change,” Jackson said. “Implementing the actions in this plan will create a more sustainable Cleveland. By strengthening our economy, cleaning our environment, and improving the health and wellness of Clevelanders, we are building a thriving green city on a blue lake.”

So, it’s as much about TDS as anything. And, there are almost no details on this. And, really, no technology to achieve this. It’s just climavirtue signaling.

And good luck with this when it’s cold and snowy.

    Many cities, counties and other nations have committed to renewable energy (some cities already rely on 100% renewable energy) BEFORE tRump was installed. Not everything is about The Don. His anti-science stance has appropriately generated local responses.

    Not all criticisms of The Don are unreasonable. “TDS” is a lazy copout.
