Re Fed Carbon taxes and regs

Major oil, power and consumer products manufacturers released their most specific plans yet for a proposed nationwide tax on carbon dioxide that aims to halve U.S. emissions by 2035. The blueprint unveiled by the Climate Leadership Council calls for an initial $40 levy on each ton of CO2. The council, which unites major fossil fuel companies and some conservation groups, even agreed to jettison one of its most controversial initial proposals—a shield against climate-related lawsuits. But Big Oil and conservatives want something in return: In exchange for the fee, federal regulations targeting CO2 emissions from power plants, refineries and other industrial facilities would be swept away. —Josh Petri

 
"It quickly becomes a very daunting, and sometimes demotivating, topic."

—Kaitlin Crouch of ING Groep NV. Big banks are finally starting to account for climate change risk, but it's not easy.

 
 
Top stories

In addition to the trillions of dollars needed to wean the world off of fossil fuels, and thus hopefully slow global warming, humanity has to spend a similar amount to deal with the damage already done—and yet to come. About $1.8 trillion is needed by 2030 to just prepare civilization for the effects of the climate crisis, a new report said. However, there's a silver lining: the payoff could be four times as much.

As markets start to put a price on pollution, carbon farming is gaining in popularity. The agricultural technique, which stores CO2 emissions by regenerating soil and vegetation, could be a lifeline for U.K. farmers after Brexit (assuming Brexit even happens).

Natural-gas fired plants killed the economics of coal. By 2035, those same plants will be undercut themselves by wind and solar plants, a study found.  

California legislators will vote on a bill that would require state agencies to preserve federal standards on the environment, public health and worker safety that were in place on Jan. 19, 2017—the last full day of the Obama administration. The provisions would sunset at the end of President Trump's potential second term in January 2025. They're calling it "Trump insurance."

Global warming has opened up Arctic passages to new shipping routes. Now the melting ice is handing an opportunity to other industries. Submarine data cables have become easier to lay in previously frozen regions, offering a shorter route for communications between the world's major economic centers, and giving a competitive edge to high-frequency traders, data centers and connected factories.

 
What we've been reading

Trump told staff to squelch government experts who contradicted his incorrect claim and doctored map about Hurricane Dorian. NOAA administrator Neil Jacobs, who was reportedly told appointees might be fired, assailed his own  meteorologists. Democrats are investigating.

In the U.S., people who lose their homes to hurricanes often remain and rebuild. Canada, on the other hand, has responded to the escalating costs of the climate crisis by limiting aid after disasters, and even telling people to leave their homes for good. 

Vox lays out extreme weather scenarios for vulnerable parts of the U.S.: Hurricanes in Florida, extreme heat waves in Arizona and wildfires in California. It also reports on the controversy over Jonathan Franzen's New Yorker essay about how the battle to slow climate change is already lost.

A Washington Post analysis of multiple temperature data sets found roughly one-tenth of the globe has already warmed by more than 2 degrees Celsius. That's more than five times the size of the United States. A hot zone off the South American coast illustrates a little-noticed trend in ocean warming — and the potentially catastrophic effects it can bring to marine life. Hot spots like these are the scenes of a critical acceleration, places where geophysical processes are amplifying the general warming trend.

Dorian breaks Bahamas all-time hurricane intensity record


000 WTNT45 KNHC 011457 TCDAT5 Hurricane Dorian Discussion Number 33 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL052019 1100 AM EDT Sun Sep 01 2019 Air Force and NOAA reconnaissance planes penetrated the distinct eye of Dorian, and found that the hurricane has become extremely intense with a stadium effect in the eye. The NOAA plane reported a peak flight-level wind of 159 kt, while the SFMR from both planes have measured winds between 155 and 170 kt. A dropsonde from the NOAA plane measured a wind gust of 176 kt at the surface. A blend of these measurements yield to an initial intensity of 155 kt, making Dorian the strongest hurricane on record in the northwestern Bahamas.

Australia Acknowledges the Facts about Nukes

Report says nuclear power in Australia “not viable option”

Developing nuclear power in Australia is not a viable option, according to a report from leading think-tank the Australia Institute.
The National Energy Emissions Audit said the country’s increased development of wind and solar power would render nuclear power uneconomic.
The report follows recent announcements by Australia’s Minister for Energy, Angus Taylor, that the potential for nuclear energy would be examined by a parliamentary enquiry, but that the current ‘ban’ on nuclear would remain in place.
The Australia Institute found that for 44 hours in July, South Australia generated enough wind and solar energy to power more than 100 percent of the grid.
The Australia Institute’s director of climate and energy Richie Merzian said the data proves there is no need for nuclear power plants to provide reliable energy.
"What our audit shows is the windows where you need that peak demand are few, but that's really where the additional support needs to come and that won't be provided by a baseload support like nuclear," Merzian told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

Subject: A historic day for our climate
To: Montgomery Bannerman <mbannerman@arcstarenergy.com>


New York is leading the way.
Dear Montgomery,
 
Today was truly a monumental day for our state and the nation. I was proud to be joined by former Vice President Al Gore to announce the largest offshore wind agreement by a state in U.S. history, and to sign the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.
 
Offshore wind is critical to our plan to transition to clean energy, and today, New York selected two offshore projects totaling 1,700 megawatts. That's enough energy to power over 1 million homes.
 
These projects won't just help the climate — they will support more than 1,600 jobs and create $3.2 billion in economic activity. 
 
The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act signed today is the most aggressive climate legislation in the country. It requires an 85% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and puts our state on the road to economy-wide carbon neutrality.
 
Gov. Cuomo signs CLCPA.
 
The environment and climate change are the most critically important policy priorities we face. They literally will determine the future. 
 
To deny climate change is to deny reality.
 
The American chorus demanding acknowledgment of the climate crisis is now deafening and we are overpowering the forces that are vested in the status quo.
 
I am proud that today, New York set an example for the world to follow.
 
Ever Upward,
 
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
