California Today: California Today: The Fight Over Single Payer

Here’s the sign-up.)Today’s introduction comes from Jennifer Medina, a national correspondent based in Los Angeles.The push to approve a single-payer universal health insurance in California never had much of a chance this year, at least according to most longtime Sacramento observers.So perhaps the only surprise came in the timing when the Assembly speaker, Anthony Rendon, announced late Friday afternoon that he would shelve the bill and urged supporters to come up with details before introducing it again.In the capital and beyond, moderates applauded the move, saying it was little more than a hollow promise that would cost the state some $400 billion a year.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyCalifornia TodayThe news and stories that matter to Californians (and anyone else interested in the state).

Here’s the sign-up.)Some of California’s most celebrated beaches are also the most likely to make you sick.Heal the Bay, an environmental nonprofit, recently issued its annual report card for bacterial pollution at more than 400 beaches along the Pacific Coast.Singled out as the least sanitary were destinations like La Jolla Cove, San Clemente Pier, Santa Monica Pier and Santa Cruz County’s Cowell and Capitola beaches.Heal the Bay divvied out grades by season, using weekly data from April 2016 through March 2017.During the dry days of summer last year, the vast majority of California beaches had excellent grades.Continue reading the main storyContinue reading the main storyBut winter was a different story. As record rainfall swept through the state’s cityscapes and pushed billions of gallons of runoff out to sea, water quality plummeted.Continue reading the main storyNearly half of California beaches earned grades of C to F during the wet weather, 12 percent more than the five-year average.Sarah Sikich, Heal the Bay’s chief scientist, said solutions lie in programs known to mitigate runoff pollution such as increased urban green cover and projects to capture, clean and reuse storm water.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyCalifornia TodayThe news and stories that matter to Californians (and anyone else interested in the state).

Cove-like stretches such as those at Cowell and La Jolla are at a disadvantage because pollutants are less readily washed out to sea.And beaches near creeks, rivers or storm drains absorb the brunt of urban runoff.Humboldt County’s Clam Beach, which is fed by two creeks, was named California’s most polluted beach by Heal the Bay.The problem there has vexed local environmentalists who cite a panoply of possible causes: bird poop, campground toilets, old septic systems, livestock and more.“There’s no shortage of theories,” said Jennifer Kalt, the director of Humboldt Baykeeper, an environmental group.Better understood is that bacterial pollution rises sharply immediately after a rain, then typically goes right back to normal. That’s why health experts recommend beachgoers wait three days to enter the ocean after a storm.Continue reading the main story(You can also check Heal the Bay’s online tool for the latest beach conditions).“I think oftentimes people think kids just get diarrhea or stomach aches for other reasons,” Ms. […]

Elon Musk just quit presidential councils over Paris climate treaty rejection.

Some highlights:

“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”

Pittsburgh’s votes went mostly to Hillary Clinton. She won 55.9 percent of votes in Allegheny County. Note that the Paris Agreement encompasses people from nearly 200 countries, not just the city where it was drafted.

“The bottom line is the Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States.”

Other countries think U.S. involvement is extremely fair. The United States blows every other country away in terms of per capita emissions.

“This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining an economic advantage over the United States.”

Actually, the economic advantages of combating climate change are well documented. Companies like Exxon, Google, and even Tiffany & Co. asked Trump to stay in the agreement.

And, just for fun, a comment from Scott Pruitt:

“America finally has a leader who answers only to the people.”

Nearly 70 percent of Americans were on board with the Paris Agreement. Only 45 percent voted for Trump.
