  • FLEISCHMAN: GOP Votes Give Jerry Brown Big Win on Cap-and-Trade

    The “shadow presidency” of California Governor Jerry Brown scored a win Monday night as eight Republican legislators crossed the political aisle and voted with most Democrats to extend a key component of the “cap-and-trade” program that has literally shifted $4.42 billion from the private sector to the government since mid-2012. While a lot of politicking went into rounding up the votes for the cap-and -trade extension among both political party caucuses in both chambers, it was clear that Governor Brown had enough political capital, along with a willingness to “strategically target” the spending of Cap and Trade tax dollars to...

    A new report that analyzed Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) data generated by NASA and the NOAA found that it's complete bunk.The paper was peer-reviewed by some notable scientists with some pretty impressive credentials who agree with the report's conclusions.

    French President Emmanuel Macron says he worked his charm on President Donald Trump during the U.S. leader's visit to Paris – so much so that he may have changed Trump’s mind on climate change. Trump and Macron -- who said his interaction with Trump was carefully calculated -- discussed their main point of contention: U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement. Macron told French news outlet Le Journal du Dimanche that Trump “listened” to him when the two discussed climate change, adding: “He understood the reason for my position, notably the link between climate change and terrorism.” The presidents spoke...

    The California Senate Majority Leader Kevin de León has introduced a new bill that would mandate the Golden State get all of its electricity from renewable sources by 2045. This replaces a law that was passed in 2016 that dictated that renewable energy sources be 50% of all electricity produced by 2030. This bill moves that requirement up to 2025 with the 50% edict and establishes the new 100% standard 20 years later. What has not been widely discussed in the press – and buried in the details of the bill – is that all new homes and all homes...

    Donald Trump regrets the “bizarre mistake” of withdrawing the US from the Paris climate agreement, Sir Richard Branson has said. The British billionaire also urged the president to help phase out the ailing US coal industry. Speaking in Brooklyn on Friday, the Virgin Group founder said businesses and cities were firmly behind a transition to low-carbon energy, which made Trump’s decision to exit the Paris deal “very, very strange”. “With climate change, it’s America first and our beautiful globe last, and that seems incredibly sad,” said Branson. “I’ve got a feeling that the president is regretting what he did. Maybe...

    When a U.S. Republican senator threw a snowball onto the Senate floor in late February of 2015, he used it to underscore his belief that humanmade climate change was an alarmist conclusion. The snowball had been rolled from the capital grounds in Washington D.C., which, at the time, was experiencing an uncharacteristically cold winter. If global warming was real, he postured, how could the nation's capital experience such severe cold? Uncharacteristically cold winters, however, just might be one of the most hard felt effects of climate change, according to a study published in Nature Geoscience by a team of researchers....

    It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas — and the cities they will drown — have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the coastline will not be enough. Indeed,...

    Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan admits the only reason for being in the Paris Climate Treaty was to get money from the U.S. and other more wealthy nations.  Now that the U.S. has pulled out of the treaty, there’s no reason to expect the financial benefits. Proving yet again, for the eleventyth time, that the entire construct of the Paris Climate Treaty had nothing to do with the actual climate (ie. weather), and everything to do with economic wealth distribution. (Reuters)  The U.S. decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement means Turkey is less inclined to ratify the deal...

    World leaders made concessions on trade and climate language to Donald Trump Saturday at the end of the most fractious and riot-hit G20 summit ever, in exchange for preserving a fragile unity of the club of major industrialised and emerging economies. But the gesture opened the door for others, with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warning that Ankara was now leaning towards not ratifying the landmark Paris climate accord. Erdogan’s threat brought further disarray to a summit that was marred by bilateral quarrels and strife over climate protection and trade. […] In a departure from final summit declarations that tend...

    Four in 10 Americans — or 39 percent — think the odds for human extinction because of climate change or global warming are 50 percent or more. But the majority of Americans, or 58 percent, think the odds of human extinction because of climate change is less than 50 percent, revealing that climate change is not a topic of universal agreement in the United States. This divide is revealed in a Yale University report titled “Climate Change in the American Mind.” “More than half of Americans (58%) believe climate change is mostly human caused,” the Yale report states. “That’s the...

    France’s swashbuckling TV star turned environment minister Nicolas Hulot laid out France’s new “climate plan” intended to meet the ambitious targets of the Paris climate accord on Thursday and become carbon neutral by 2050. […] “We are announcing an end to the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2040,” Hulot said, calling it a “veritable revolution”. “The solutions are there,” Hulot said. “Our own manufacturers have what they need to support this promise”, adding that it all contributed to the “public health agenda”. Acknowledging that reaching the target would be “tough”, particularly for automakers, Hulot said that France’s car...

Others say perhaps a 0.2 degree C (0.3 degrees F) difference, and even that would hold only...

    Full headline: HAWK AND DOVE Stephen Hawking fears Trump could ‘push Earth over the brink’ and start chain reaction which wipes out humanity. In recent years, Hawking has become something of a doom-monger who is determined to sketch out a variety of grim fates which await the human race. In his latest prophecy, the professor suggested our planet could be destined to become totally uninhabitable. “We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump’s action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and...

    The Trump administration said Thursday it is taking steps to expand oil drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans as President Donald Trump continues to push for U.S. “energy dominance” in the global market. The Interior Department is rewriting a five-year drilling plan established by the Obama administration, with an eye toward opening areas in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans that now are off-limits to drilling. It’s one of six initiatives that the president unveiled Thursday in hopes of generating more energy exports and jobs. “The golden era of American energy is now underway,” Trump said in a Thursday speech...

    The sun is heading into a period known as solar minimum, during which activity at the surface will ‘change form.’In this time, certain types of activity, such as sunspots and solar flares will drop – but, it’s also expected to bring the development of long-lived phenomena including coronal holes. According to NASA, solar minimum could also enhance the effects of space weather, potentially disrupting communications and navigation systems, and even causing space junk to ‘hang around.’

    European leaders vowed Thursday to defend the landmark Paris climate pact at a G20 summit next week, setting them on collision course with US President Donald Trump at what is expected to be a stormy meeting. Leaders of Germany, France, Italy and other EU economies acknowledged their long standing ties with Washington but said they would not give in on “existential” threats like global warming. They also stressed the importance of keeping markets open, warning that the protectionism and isolationism symbolized by Trump’s “America First” stance won’t solve global problems. On the biggest challenges, Europe was now “a reference point,”...

    Wisconsin Democrats have demanded Gov. Scott Walker (R) join the U.S. Climate Alliance, a newly formed coalition of states that intends to move forward with the terms of the Paris climate accord after President Trump’s decision to pull out of the agreement. "President Trump’s rejection of fact, science and of the Paris Climate Agreement is an act that endangers every American. Gov. Walker’s silence on this issue echoes this shared anti-environment, anti-middle class agenda,” read the letter to Walker signed by 35 state representatives and 11 senators. "Given the recent reports on Wisconsin’s dismal slump in job creation, we cannot...

    Subsidizing the purchase of electric cars in Canada is an inefficient way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that is not cost effective, according to a Montreal Economic Institute study released Thursday. "It's just a waste," said Germain Belzile, one of the authors of the study, which examined electric vehicle subsidies offered by Canada's two biggest provinces Ontario and Quebec, which can rise to as much as a third of a vehicle's purchase price, depending on the model. "Not only do these programs cost taxpayers a fortune, but they also have little effect on GHG emissions," he said. The government of...

We all breathe the same air. There is no liberal water or conservative water; we all drink the same water,” the star of “The Terminator” movies said. …
