Don’t Cheer Up

On Thursday, President Trump announced he will withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement. If that makes you mad, good. If that makes you outraged and disgusted, even better. We have good reason. Even for a president whose administration has quickly earned a reputation for reckless and morally bankrupt policies, this appalling decision stands out, and the reaction both here and abroad has been withering. For the rest of the planet, the message is clear: Donald Trump has zero interest in being the “leader of the free world,” much less in international cooperation to solve global problems. […]

Climate Change Is The Real Job Killer, Not The Paris Climate Agreement

With the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, President Donald Trump has put the United States on the wrong side of history. The United States now joins only two other nations, Syria and Nicaragua, in standing on the sidelines in the fight against climate change. While this decision may further tarnish the reputation of the United States on the world stage, it can’t stop the inevitable transition to the low carbon global economy of the future. As a CEO, I often to have to make decisions that meet the short term needs of my business without undermining our long term competitiveness. I’ve made capital investments in our St. […]

‘More Waters Rising’ Is The Song For Our Times

Pete Seeger once said about Woody Guthrie’s music, “Any damn fool can get complicated. It takes genius to attain simplicity.” Saro Lynch-Thomason has written a simple song, and it’s genius. I first heard the young Appalachian folklorist, ballad singer and songwriter last Fall at a Washington, DC area folk music retreat. In a mini-concert which featured a number of traditional and older songs, she ended with one of her own, leading the packed room in harmony. There are more waters rising, This I know, this I know, There are more waters rising, This I know. There are more waters rising – They will find their way to me, There are more waters rising, This I know, this I know, There are more waters rising, This I know. As she led the crowd through verses about fires burning and mountains falling, I began to hear echoes of voices past – Jean Ritchie and others whose deeply rooted music documented the devastation brought by mountaintop removal mining, often falsely referred to as “clean coal technology.” Then the song took a turn. I will wade through the waters, This I know, this I know, I will wade through the waters, This I know. I will wade through the waters When they find their way to me, I will wade through the waters, This I know, this I know, I will wade through the waters, This I know […]

But they are misrepresenting the situation, and not helping much with the search for constructive action. First, they claim that the USA is abandoning its leadership role. Uhu. What kind of leader is one that has contributed more than anyone else to create the problem, is still doing at least twice as much harm per capita as most other comparable countries, has been totally unreliable in international negotiations, forging the Kyoto protocol and dropping out as soon as a terrible new administration took over (the one that sent the world on a downward spiral of terror by the criminal war on Iraq), and has been dragging the climate negotiations because of its inability to have any sound agreement ratified by a congress sold out to dirty industries?

2 Scoops, Scorched Earth

On Thursday, President Donald Trump announced that the United States would leave The Paris Agreement. The world gasped at America’s choice of a scorched Earth policy. It’s a defining moment in human history when presidential power and ignorance supersede; science and common sense.Having spent my entire life studying Earth’s life support systems, I am appalled that America walked away from the climate agreement to save our planet. Allow me to tell you why:My colleagues at The University of Melbourne, Australia recently presented irrefutable evidence of North and South Pole ice cores. Those cores show that since 1950 atmospheric carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide are higher than any time during the previous 800,000 years. Those heat-trapping gases are rising relentlessly from humans burning fossil fuels.So what does this mean for our life support system, Nature?Burning fossil fuels has killed Nature at an unprecedented rate.For instance, levels of mercury poisoning in the oceans have tripled since 1950 from burning coal. Eighty-four percent of all fish tested now contain mercury […]

Sweden Has Shown That Climate Action And Economic Growth Are Absolutely Linked

Thursday, US President Donald Trump followed through on his threat to leave the Paris Agreement. A total of 147 countries have ratified the Agreement, which states that a global temperature rise will remain well below two degrees Celsius, and efforts will be made to limit it even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. The Paris Agreement was a decisive breakthrough in international climate efforts and is needed more than ever now that we are getting reports that Arctic ice is melting much faster than researchers expected. The US leaving the Paris Agreement is a huge setback for future international climate efforts. It also affects tomorrow’s jobs and the labor market. The rest of the world cannot afford to slow down to wait for the US. Those who opt out of making the transition now will be left hopelessly behind.Swedish experience shows that predictability and effective policy levers play an important role in companies’ transition potential.An increasing number of companies see profitability and business opportunities in reducing their climate impact and respond to growing demand for sustainable solutions. The challenge of climate change requires policies and leadership that create opportunities for the business sector to use this to turn risks into opportunities. The US now risks moving in a direction diametrically opposed to its own development and the development of the rest of the world.In connection with the annual spring meetings of the IMF and the World Bank, we co-organized a seminar on climate-smart growth and the business sector’s role in the climate transition. The seminar in Washington pointed out the lessons Sweden has learned regarding the role of policies and the business sector and their interaction in the climate transition […]
