Chevron CEO to climate activists: What would you live without? 26.5.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
Pressed by activist investors to do more about climate change, Chevron Corp. CEO John Watson on Wednesday rejected calls to put a price on the greenhouse gases that come from burning his company’s products and insisted the world would need oil for decades to come. Speaking at the company’s annual shareholders meeting in San Ramon, and in comments to reporters afterward, Watson railed against what he called “command and control” policies to tackle global warming. [...] while Watson praised last year’s international climate agreement in Paris as “a good first step,” he argued that any attempt to set an international price for carbon dioxide emissions would hurt the world’s poor, who need affordable energy to improve their lives. Chevron investors rejected all of them, including proposals to set emission-reduction targets for the company or start counting Chevron’s worldwide reserves in terms of British thermal units as a way to encourage alternative-energy investments. While all oil companies are ...

How a Trump Presidency Could Wreck the Paris Climate Deal 25.5.2016 Truthout - All Articles
If Donald Trump wins and pulls the US out of its climate change commitments, some countries wonder, why should they keep their own? (Photo: Curran Kelleher ) Join the movement for independent media -- no ads, no sponsored content, just uncensored news and analysis. Make a tax-deductible donation to Truthout today! Donald Trump first shared his analysis of the climate crisis in a now infamous 2012 tweet-rant : "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive," he claimed. The Republican presidential hopeful has since dialed back the rhetoric, calling that earlier claim a joke . But -- as in other areas of critical domestic and international concern-- he's fallen short when pressed for specifics on what a Trump presidency would mean for energy and the climate. It seemed his oft-repeated phrase "trust me, I'll get the best people " was as close as the American public was going to get to details. Until now. The best Trump could find turns ...
