Brian Head Fire burns estimated 1,800 acres, crawls toward Boy Scouts camp 21.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Brian Head • The fire that forced the evacuation of about 750 residents and visitors Saturday stretched north toward a camp used by the Boy Scouts of America on Tuesday. The fire, which had burned an estimated 1,800 acres and was 15 percent contained, had jumped out of the containment line and reached within a mile of the camp as 15-mph winds pushed the fire north, Jesse Bender with the Great Basin Incident Management Team said during a community meeting Tuesday evening.

You can say one thing for California’s initiatives aimed at stemming fossil-fuel-driven climate change: They have the ability to drive conservative politicians from oil, gas and coal states batty.

Trump's FBI Nominee Christopher Wray Weighed in on the ExxonMobil Climate Change Investigations 19.6.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Christopher Wray, President Trump's nominee for FBI director, advised corporate clients on how to avoid "being in the crosshairs" of law enforcement at a 2015 legal forum where investigations by state attorneys general into whether ExxonMobil misled investors and the public about climate change were a topline issue.  Wray's law firm later pitched clients on its ability to help corporations "vigorously contest" such investigations in response to the 2016 launch of a coalition of 17 state attorneys general aimed at pursuing similar legal efforts around climate change. The firm's clients have included ExxonMobil and other powerful fossil fuel interests.  First, some quick background on the issues at play, followed by some details on the involvement of Wray and his law firm.

Bloomberg View: How Trump can build toward a climate policy 19.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
President Donald Trump’s idea of putting solar panels on a border wall with Mexico, and using the revenue from the energy it generates to finance its construction, is as far-fetched as it is half-baked. Yet a more realistic environmental agenda — one that allows Trump and his Republican allies in Congress to remain true to conservative principles — is not hard to imagine. Since Trump announced his decision on the Paris agreement, more than 1,000 cities, states and businesses have declared their ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

The Challenge of Defining Fossil Fuel Subsidies 16.6.2017 Truthout - All Articles
On the fringes of promises to end all "inefficient fossil fuel subsidies" lies the perpetual discussion of what the concept of fossil fuel subsidies does -- or doesn't -- actually include. This is an in-depth look at the ways fossil fuel subsidies are measured -- and why semantic arguments over definitions may be missing the point. (Image: LW / TO; Adapted: Jeff Franklin ; Damien Gadal ) Just over a year ago, the G7 group of nations pledged to end all "inefficient fossil fuel subsidies" by 2025. This language disappeared from the latest annual G7 communique , signed in Sicily last month, while a similar G20 promise to end subsidies has no deadline. Meanwhile, on the fringes of such promises lies the perpetual discussion of what the concept of fossil fuel subsidies does -- or doesn't -- actually include. Attempts to add up the annual global total range from a few hundred billion through to the massive $5.3tn estimate published by the International Monetary Fund in 2015. Carbon Brief takes an in-depth look ...
