President Trump’s Decision To Exit Paris Climate Agreement Is A Mistake

It is our best attempt yet to deal with the increasingly negative impacts of climate change. […]

Paris Climate Agreement Could Create Jobs For Rural America

Based on news report coming out of Washington, it appears our county’s commitment to the landmark Paris climate agreement could be in question. It shouldn’t be. The Paris agreement is notable for many reasons, including recognition that every nation must contribute and every climate solution must be used, including techniques like carbon capture in forests that provide appealing “win-win” opportunities for our country. Given today’s politically polarized dialogue on climate change, it is no surprise that newly empowered conservative political leaders in Washington would re-examine this historic commitment that took effect last fall. After all, the new administration and Congress are scrutinizing federal policy on a number of issues subject to political conflict in recent years, such as immigration and health care. Yet, this re-evaluation of the Paris agreement could turn out to be positive for the longer term if done right. Our current political leaders will discover that the Paris agreement and the United States’ “Nationally Determined Contribution” under that agreement align well with many conservative principles for problem solving. For example, the Paris agreement:· Requires fast-growing nations like China to participate· Gives each nation flexibility to craft its own Nationally Determined Contribution, and leaves room for countries to refine and evolve their climate strategies over time· Recognizes the opportunity to capture carbon through forests, which could be leveraged to create jobs in rural areas in the U.S. and around the worldWhile all of these items are important to conservative principles, I want to focus on the last item—the potential role of forests in reducing carbon emissions—as a uniquely powerful opportunity to build consensus for climate action.If you’re wondering why forests are involved in an agreement to address climate change, let me explain how forests offer a powerful climate solution. Forests act like natural carbon scrubbers for our carbon emissions thanks to the process of photosynthesis, through which trees draw carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen. […]

Environmental Advocates – Thank Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio has become one of Earth’s biggest environmental advocates. I recently finished watching his new film “before the flood”. This landmark film looks at environmental degradation, carbon emissions, and even touches on one of the more pressing issues of our time, the environmental footprint of what we eat. This film harrowingly shows the damage that humans have done to the global environment over the last 100 years. […]

Barcelona is kicking cars off many of its streets.

According to a paper released Tuesday by James Hansen, formerly of NASA and now at Columbia University*, the landmark Paris Agreement is solid C-minus work — but when it comes to climate commitments, mediocrity is criminal. Slacker countries making only modest emissions reductions will lock future generations into dangerous levels of climate change.

The average global temperature is already 1 to 1.3 degrees Celsius warmer than preindustrial levels, according to Hansen’s group. That’s on par with the Earth’s climate of 115,000 years ago, when the seas were 20 feet higher than they are today.

Unless we phase out fossil fuels entirely in the next few years, Hansen told reporters on Monday, future generations will have to achieve “negative emissions” by actively removing carbon from the atmosphere. Seeing as we don’t even know if that’s possible, that’d be a helluva task for our progeny.

Hansen and his coauthors’ work, which is undergoing peer review, supports a lawsuit brought by 21 young people against the U.S. government. It charges our lawmakers with not fairly protecting the “life, liberty, and property” of future citizens by allowing fossil fuel interests to keep polluting.

But a solution is possible, Hansen explained, if we commit to a fee on carbon pollution and more investment in renewable energy.

*Correction: This story originally referred to Hansen as a former director of NASA. He was director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

Breaking News: Obama Administration Grounds Aerial Hunting, Other Inhumane Predator-Killing Practices On Refuges In Alaska

This is a landmark day for some of the nation’s most majestic, recognizable and woefully mistreated wild animals. And “landmark” barely says enough. I’m delighted to report that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has followed the National Park Service in prohibiting some of the most wanton and misguided methods utilized to slaughter grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, and coyotes on our public lands in Alaska. The new protective regulations were promulgated this day, and cover all of Alaska’s National Wildlife Refuges. These are vast lands, in many ways among the most important wildlands remaining in the world, and they belong to all 300 million-plus Americans. Each of us holds a piece of the deed to these 76-million refuge acres. […]
