The best use of California's dead trees: Leave them in the mountains 22.3.2017 LA Times: Commentary

To the editor: Science refutes virtually every claim in Jacques Leslie’s ode to logging. Dead trees, which Leslie would have removed from the Sierra Nevada and used for energy, don’t make wildfires worse; in fact, they can slow hot fires moving through the forest canopy. High-severity fire isn’t...

Of Course There Is A Hidden Nefarious Purpose Behind Trump's Proposed NIH Cut 22.3.2017 Crooks Liars
Do More Than Watch: Share This Video Who Benefits from Cutting the NIH? President Donald Trump's first budget request to Congress includes cutting 20% of the funding for the institute that supports the most basic biomedical research in the country, The National Institutes of Health. Funding to other scientific agencies, especially those focused on climate change and the environment would also be deeply affected including cuts of 40% in science programs at the Environmental Protection Agency and 26% of funding to the main research arm of the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration. The Department of Energy's Office of Science would lose $900 million, 5% of NASA's earth science budget would be gone. These cuts are intended to offset the cost of what can only be viewed as Trump/Bannon’s plans for increased war, evidenced by a $54 billion rise in military spending. Either that or he is planning on using it for international golf resort defense and occupation. In either case, his budget plan offers ...

Seven Things That Need to Happen to Keep Global Temperature Rise Below 2C 22.3.2017 Truthout.com
In late 2015, the world agreed to limit the global temperature rise to "well below 2C". Ever since the signing of the  Paris Agreement  on climate change,  scientists ,  think tanks  and  policymakers  have been scrambling to define exactly what meeting this temperature limit will mean in policy and investment terms. A new  report  released this week by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is the latest attempt to address this question. Commissioned by the German government in its role this year as G20 president, the report sets out the "essential elements" needed to create an energy sector transition consistent with the Paris Agreement. The  G20  is a group of 20 major economies, including China, India, Germany, the UK and US, which  accounts  for 63% of global population and 83% of emissions. The IEA and IRENA each took a separate approach to modelling the most cost effective decarbonisation pathway, with the IEA using a so-called ...

Cheers and Jeers: Tuesday 21.3.2017 Daily Kos
From the GREAT STATE OF MAINE… Energize an Ally Tuesday Really, President Lardbrain? Your budget threatens to send a torpedo into the side of Meals on Wheels so you can divert the money to pay for more actual torpedoes? Wow. I knew a Meals on Wheels recipient back in Ohio. Mr. Paulson lived up the street. Late 70s, had lost his wife, had limited mobility because of injuries from the time he fell asleep in his chair with a lit cigarette in his hand. Me and other neighbor kids would mow his lawn and do other chores for a few odd bucks. Sometimes we'd watch TV with him in his den. Herculean farter---kept us in stitches. And every now and then we'd be there when the Meals on Wheels volunteer would show up. Didn’t think much of it at the time, but President Lardbrain's outright cruelty in threatening a funding source for it reminded me of Mr. Paulson and how he must've appreciated those MOW deliveries. The backlash to the threatened cuts---and budget director Mick Mulvaney's idiot assertion that the program ...
