Wall Street Wants to Lend You Money to Fight Climate Change 23.4.2014 Mother Jones
This story originally appeared in The Atlantic and is republished here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. The latest series of reports from the United Nation Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned in stark terms the catastrophic consequences of the world's governments' decades-long foot-dragging on limiting greenhouse gas emissions. But what can you do? For one thing, fix up your damn house. That furnace, from the Reagan era, the inefficient water heater, the drafty windows? They're directly contributing to climate change. Homes consume 22 percent of the US's energy and, along with commercial buildings, account for 10 percent of the United States' greenhouse gas emissions. The chances of the US government enacting a carbon tax, emissions trading scheme or taking other sweeping action to tackle climate change may be next to nil. But thanks to an innovative new initiative from financial conglomerate Citi, the Pennsylvania state treasury and non-profits, homeowners across the country soon ...

U.K Guardian Reporter Aboard Icebound Antarctic Ship Goes Stir Crazy 31.12.2013 NewsBusters
The helicopter rescue crew is coming to take me away, ha-haaa! They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa! To the funny farm. Where I can find banana peanut butter milkshakes sprinkled with delicious carbon credits. We thought it was a joke and so we laughed, we laughed when I had said that proving global warming had trapped us in ice and that I'm going MAD!!! And U.K. Guardian reporter Laurence Topham has proclaimed himself going mad (along with his craving for banana peanut butter milkshakes) in this rather morose video diary in which he discovers that that the adventure to the Antarctic to report on "climate change" has brutally backfired to the extent of causing him to go stir crazy. Watch the video below and note the strange similarity with the mood of the Jack Nicholson character in "The Shining." read ...

Should We Fight Climate Change By Taxing Meat? 21.12.2013 Mother Jones
This story originally appeared in the Guardian , and has been reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. Meat should be taxed to encourage people to eat less of it, so reducing the production of global warming gases from sheep, cattle and goats, according to a group of scientists. Several high-profile figures, from the chief of the UN's climate science panel to the economist Lord Stern , have previously advocated eating less meat to tackle global warming. The scientists' analysis, published in the journal Nature Climate Change , takes the contentious step of suggesting methane emissions be cut by pushing up the price of meat through a tax or emissions trading scheme. "Influencing human behaviour is one of the most challenging aspects of any large-scale policy, and it is unlikely that a large-scale dietary change will happen voluntarily without incentives," they say. "Implementing a tax or emission trading scheme on livestock's greenhouse gas emissions could be an ...

Will Abbott replicate Howard's climate change betrayal? | Alexander White 7.11.2013 Guardian: Environment
Will Tony Abbott follow in John Howard's footsteps and disavow his climate change "direct action" policy? John Howard revealed this week that his decision before the 2007 election to support a carbon price was politically motivated rather than based on the scientific risks posed by global warming. As Lenore Taylor noted in The Guardian on Wednesday "Howard made it clear he actually didn't think there was anything really "significant" or "damaging" about greenhouse emissions and that his last-minute policy had been mainly about grasping the tide of public opinion, rather than any opportunities from emissions trading." While the progressive side of politics always criticised Howard through the moniker of "Honest John" — a reference to his "lie" over the introduction of a goods and services tax — the professional political commentariat in the Canberra Press Gallery would often remark that Howard's election winning magic came from being a " conviction politician ". Here, Howard's ...
