Summit County Citizens Voice, January 30, 2015
FIVE YEARS ON: STUDY FINDS MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF OIL FROM DEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTER BURIED IN GULF OF MEXICO. Five years after BP’s failed Deepwater Horizon drill rig spewed 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, a significant amount of that oil remains buried in seafloor sediments. A new study by a Florida State University researcher estimates that about 6 to 10 million gallons of oil are still there, perhaps decomposing slowly, but probably affecting Gulf ecosystems. “This is going to affect the Gulf for years to come,” said researcher Jeff Chanton. “Fish will likely ingest contaminants because worms ingest the sediment, and fish eat the worms. It’s a conduit for contamination into the food web,” he said sediments http://summitcountyvoice.com/2015/01/30/study-finds-massive-amounts-of-oil-from-deepwater-horizon-disaster-buried-in-gulf-of-mexico-sediments/

RT Business, March 04, 2015
BP CEO GETS 35% PAY RISE IN 2014 - FREEZES PAY OF ITS 84,000 WORKFORCE AROUND THE WORLD. Dudley's remuneration rose from $10.17 million in 2013 to $12.74 million last year, according to BP’s annual report released Tuesday. He also received $9.8 million in share awards. In January the company cuts its capital spending program and imposed a salary freeze, weeks after axing hundreds of jobs in Scotland and thousands more globally as a result of falling oil prices and profits. http://rt.com/business/237617-bp-dudley-remuneration-rise/

Samantha Groen's curator insight, February 4, 11:43 AM

BP was banned from preforming any work in the US in 2012 and now the suspension has been lifted. They are back in the oil game. They had to pay a $4.5 billion fine, admit to lying about the damages, plead guilty, and now they are back in business. Their incident caused the death of 11 workers and the destruction of the Gulf of Mexico. Their attempts to make it better were pathetic. It is interesting how people can put a dollar value to the damage and death of people and a huge mass of water and fish population.

 

This was a huge example of poor corporate social responsibility and the damages are still taking its toll. Reading about the research on how the fish and sea creatures are still being affected 5 years later. The response that the BP representatives are giving in respect to the research on how the fish's hearts are being affected just shows that they are still not practicing good corporate social responsibility and it is sad to see how little a company will take care for their mistakes and the world they live in.

Critics said the water reform and other legislation would give coal companies the right to extract billions of litres of ground water without having to buy licences or to adhere to caps. Environment groups feared the legislation would damage aquifers and the Great Barrier Reef.

Nafeez Ahmed: Plight of Kenya's indigenous Sengwer shows carbon offsets are empowering corporate recolonisation of the South

 

Guardian, July 03, 2014

WORLD BANK AND UN CARBON OFFSET SCHEME 'COMPLICIT' IN GENOCIDAL LAND GRAB

UN's REDD scheme promises carbon offsetting will empower local communities in the developing world while conserving forests - but critics say the scheme is fuelling genocidal evictions of indigenous people from their lands. Between 2000 and 2010, a total of 500 million acres of land in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean was acquired or negotiated under deals brokered on behalf of foreign governments or transnational corporations.

     Many such deals are geared toward growing crops or biofuels for export to richer, developed countries – with the consequence that small-holder farmers are displaced from their land and lose their livelihood while local communities go hungry.

     The concentration of ownership of the world's farmland in the hands of powerful investors and corporations is rapidly accelerating, driven by resource scarcity and, thus, rising prices. According to a new report by the US land rights organisation Grain: "The powerful demands of food and energy industries are shifting farmland and water away from direct local food production to the production of commodities for industrial processing."

Less known factors, however, include 'conservation' and 'carbon offsetting.'   http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2014/jul/03/world-bank-un-redd-genocide-land-carbon-grab-sengwer-kenya

UN-REDD PLUS GETS AN "F" - BIODIVERSITY, COMMUNITIES AND FOREST CARBON CERTIFICATION. Until there is an agreement at the UNFCCC level on REDD, carbon credits from REDD projects can only be traded on voluntary markets. Buyers of these carbon credits rely on independent certification ...http://www.redd-monitor.org/?s=REDD+Plus+or+REDD+%E2%80%9CLight%E2%80%9D%3F+Biodiversity%2C+communities+and+forest+carbon+certificatio

                                                        WATCH

                                  Climate Progress, April 7, 2014

                                                  Climate Series

                                "YEARS OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY"

               Premieres Sunday on Showtime, April 13 at 10PM EDT/PDT.

Showtime has posted online the entire video of Episode 1, airing April 12, 2014 of its visually and emotionally gripping documentary series event, “Years of Living Dangerously,” produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Weintraub — and former 60 Minutes producers. Watch it here.

http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2014/04/07/3423139/episode-1-showtime-years-of-living-dangerously/

 

This is not just going to be a landmark climate change series, it is going to be a landmark television series. It is what everyone is going to be talking about from April to June. As the latest international climate report makes clear, climate change is happening right here, right now — in America and around the world. It is the biggest story of our time, and it needs a big platform to tell it.

 ▶ FOSSIL FUEL SUBSIDIES HAMPER PATHWAY TO INCLUSIVE GREEN ECONOMY, EXPERTS SAY. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently reported that CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion and industrial processes were responsible for approximately 78 per cent of the total increase in greenhouse gas emissions between 1970 and 2010.

    Experts say reducing or eliminating harmful fossil fuel subsidies - and properly pricing energy to account for environmental impacts - is one of the most promising ways governments can promote a transition to a greener economy, and even the playing field for investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy. http://www.unep.org/NewsCentre/default.aspx?DocumentID=2787&ArticleID=10837&l=en

HOW RIGGED IS THE FOSSIL FUEL MARKET? IN A WORD, "OVERWHELMING".  AN UNHOLY ALLIANCE -- THE TRUE COST OF FOSSIL FUELS. Fossil fuel company executives and D.C. politicians have long worked together to ensure coal and oil prices stay low enough to keep Americans hooked. Here's how we can break the addiction.... Industry gets tax breaks, subsidies, military support in volatile regions, the right to use our air and water like a sewer, and assurance that the government will clean up its environmental messes. Politicians get campaign contributions, a steady flow of dirty energy, and a talking point to brandish about how they kept gas affordable...http://www.treehugger.com/energy-policy/true-cost-fossil-fuels.html?campaign=daily_nl

SOVEREIGN DEBTS IN A FOSSIL-FUELED WORLD. Advanced economies – steeped in debt, with infrastructure and tax policies built around fossil fuels – resist innovation on new fuels or efforts to stem climate change and pollution. Hickey suggests that “Most world governments are so compromised with the fossil-fuel industry they cannot easily walk away without leaving their financial coffers worse off as the true costs of energy are hidden in a producer and consumer subsidy labyrinth that promotes the addiction.” Eliminating subsidies for the fossil-fuel industry, highlighting the true costs, would speed up the development of alternative energies. – YaleGlobal  http://yaleglobal.yale.edu/content/sovereign-debts-fossil-fueled-world

▶  AUSTRALIAN HONEY BEES UNABLE TO MAKE HONEY : THEIR HIVES ARE MELTING AS TEMPERATURES SOAR.

    Australia's hottest spring on record has spawn droughts and intense heatwaves; it has been disastrous for honeybees as their hives are melting whilst temperatures soar.

    Plants have responded to the stifling heatwaves this summer (2014) across the Australian continent by substantially lowering nectar production. Bees require nectar to make honey -- their only food source.

Aussie honeybees are also contending with another crisis this summer as climate disruption has their colonies operating in an emergency mode. Bees store their honey in honeycomb cells made of beeswax, which is now melting because daytime temperatures regularly exceed 95 degrees F.

    It would be prudent for Australian's to scrutinize all processed foods labels, foreign honey will be used when the following wording appears: "Made in Australia from local honey and imported ingredients."

There's a lot more at stake here than just processed foods.

    Australia's commercial bees are vividly showing scientists the knock-on effect from climate disruption.

China is the world's biggest honey producer and it will supply Australia with honey. China, however, uses many banned chemicals and faux honey syrups so Australian Customs and Border Protection Service will be faced with additional costs of thoroughly examining and testing thousands of tons of imported honey. India and Malaysia are other honey exporting nations vying to supply Australia. This much we know about climate disruption: The price of Australian food is set to rise, again.

It would be prudent for Australian's to scrutinize all processed foods labels, foreign honey will be used when the following wording appears: "Made in Australia from local honey and imported ingredients."

There's a lot more at stake here than just processed foods. Australia's commercial bees are vividly showing scientists the knock-on effect from climate disruption. The occurrence and frequency of heatwaves and droughts are predicted to double, globally; therefore we can expect more bees unable to make honey, and pollinate plants including most of our food crops.

                                     WHEN IS ENOUGH ENOUGH?

                               ClimateProgress, December 27, 2013

America produced an average of 7.5 million barrels of crude oil per day in 2013, an increase of one million barrels per day and the biggest one-year jump in the nation’s history, FuelFix reported Thursday. The U.S. Energy Information Association (EIA) estimates production will grow by another one million barrels in 2014 and will peak at a whopping 9.5 million barrels per day in 2016.

And the production surge doesn’t stop at the water’s edge. According to FuelFix, “the Gulf of Mexico also is seeing a boost, with oil production expected to grow to 1.4 million barrels per day in 2014, up by 100,000 barrels.”... http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/12/27/3105211/obama-administration-oil-production/#

2047 : WHERE WILL EARTH HEAD AFTER ITS 'CLIMATE DEPARTURE'? The term “climate departure” has an odd ring, but its meaning is relatively straightforward. It marks the point at which the earth’s climate begins to cease resembling what has come before and moves into a new state, one where heat records are routinely shattered and what once was considered extreme will become the norm.http://e360.yale.edu/feature/interview_camilo_mora_where_will_earth_head_after_its_climate_departure/2783/

2047 : WHERE WILL EARTH HEAD AFTER ITS 'CLIMATE DEPARTURE'? The term “climate departure” has an odd ring, but its meaning is relatively straightforward. It marks the point at which the earth’s climate begins to cease resembling what has come before and moves into a new state, one where heat records are routinely shattered and what once was considered extreme will become the norm.http://e360.yale.edu/feature/interview_camilo_mora_where_will_earth_head_after_its_climate_departure/2783/

-▶ FOSSIL-FUEL INDUSTRY SPENT BIG TO SET ANTI-ENVIRONMENT AGENDA FOR THE 2015 U.S. CONGRESS : A legislative rider that was quietly attached to a major defense funding bill earlier this month marked a watershed change in the political fortunes of the coal, oil, and gas industries and their return to power in Washington, D.C. The rider—which turns the Bull Mountains in Montana over to a Koch-connected, Houston-based company to be strip mined for coal—is the fossil-fuel industry’s first major payoff from a three-quarters-of-a-billion-dollar investment to secure Republican control of Congress and to set the stage for a pro-coal, pro-drilling, and anti-environment agenda in 2015

The National UAE, November 27, 2014

-▶ OPEC MINISTERS OPT FOR STATUS QUO AS OIL PRICES SLIDE.  “It is increasingly clear that we have begun a new chapter in the history of the oil markets,” the IEA concluded. “Economic development no longer spurs oil demand growth as it once did.”

                                                CHECK MATE

The UAE’s Minister of Energy, Suhail Al Mazrouei, echoed other ministers in saying that it was not Opec producers who were primarily responsible for the world’s oil glut, referring particularly to surging North American production....Meanwhile, oil production from North America — especially from unconventional sources, including so-called shale oil — has surged over the last few years, helped by relatively high oil prices. That has pushed the need for imported oil by the US to its lowest level in more than four decades and meant tougher competition for oil producers to find buyers... http://www.thenational.ae/business/energy/opec-ministers-opt-for-status-quo-as-oil-prices-slide

The rider—which turns the Bull Mountains in Montana over to a Koch-connected, Houston-based company to be strip mined for coal—is the fossil-fuel industry’s first major payoff from a three-quarters-of-a-billion-dollar investment to secure Republican control of Congress and to set the stage for a pro-coal, pro-drilling, and anti-environment agenda in 2015

A major trade deal currently being negotiated between the European Union (EU) and the United States (US) threatens the power of governments to protect communities, citizens and the environment from risky new technologies such as fracking. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) covers a huge range of issues and sectors, including food safety, genetically modified products, toxic chemicals, highly polluting fuels and data protection. The talks threaten to weaken or roll-back democratically agreed safeguards put in place to protect the environment and citizens – for the sake of corporate profits. http://www.tni.org/briefing/no-fracking-way?context=596

Mikko Salo's curator insight, December 1, 2014 1:13 PM

Öljyn hinta on laskenut kesästä lähtien, ja on nyt alimmalla tasollaan neljään vuoteen. Tämä johtuu pääasiassa teollisuusmaiden vähentyneestä öljyn kysynnästä, erityisesti Yhdysvalloissa tarve tuoda maahan öljyä on pienimmillään moneen vuosikymmeneen.

   Nyt öljyntuottajamaiden OPEC-järjestö päättivät pitää öljyn tuotannon ja hinnan ennallaan ja antaa markkinavoimien tehdä tehtävänsä. He uskovat, että aleneva hinta tulee elvyttämään kysyntää markkinatalouden lakien mukaan, ja tällöin hinta voi taas nousta.

VAST METHANE 'PLUMES' SEEN IN ARCTIC OCEAN AS SEA ICE RETREATS. Dramatic and unprecedented plumes of methane -

A GREENHOUSE GAS 20 TIMES MORE POTENT THAN CARBON DIOXIDE  - have been seen bubbling to the surface of the Arctic Ocean by scientists undertaking an extensive survey of the region.... it’s strongly reminiscent of what is probably the worst possible climate scenario imaginable, a feedback loop so humongous and destructive that it would lead to runaway warming that makes today's runaway warming look tame by comparison. The last time this happened, it poisoned 90 percent of all life on earth with hydrogen sulfide gas, in a process described by paleontologist Peter Ward as "life killing itself off."... http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/vast-methane-plumes-seen-in-arctic-ocean-as-sea-ice-retreats-6276278.html

What started as a short YouTube video and a couple of local news interviews about a Texas landowner being able to light his water on fire has ballooned into a free speech fight.Steve Lipsky has complained for years that fracking company Range Resources polluted his drinking water and streams that run through his property. The company sued him in 2011 for defaming its reputation for "environmental stewardship".

                HOW FRACKING CAN MAKE WATER FLAMMABLE
One of the most outrageous and unbelievable effects of fracking in some areas is the phenomenon of tap water becoming flammable, straight from the tap, due to methane and other gasses leaching into ground wells and water supplies. Watching a faucet set on fire and hearing the stories of the people involved is not something that can be too readily dismissed, and here are a 5 examples of this:

Fracking wastewater contains more than just the chemicals used by oil and gas companies to break up the rocks, including toxic substances like methanol, benzene, naphthalene, and trimethylbenzene. It can also include nasties that it picks up from those deep rock formations, including lead and arsenic.

THE ECONOMICS OF GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE DENIAL - David Suzuki

In failing to act on global warming, many leaders are putting jobs and economic prosperity at risk, according to recent studies. It’s suicidal, both economically and literally, to focus on the fossil fuel industry’s limited, short-term economic benefits at the expense of long-term prosperity, human health and the natural systems, plants and animals that make our well-being and survival possible. Those who refuse to take climate change seriously are subjecting us to enormous economic risks and foregoing the numerous benefits that solutions would bring...http://ecowatch.com/2014/07/08/economics-of-global-warming/

      OpEd by Henry M. Paulson Jr., Fmr. US Treasury Secretary

 

  "THERE is a time for weighing evidence and a time for acting. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout my work in finance, government and conservation, it is to act before problems become too big to manage.

For too many years, we failed to rein in the excesses building up in the nation’s financial markets.

          When the credit bubble burst in 2008, the damage was devastating. Millions suffered. Many still do.

We’re making the same mistake today with climate change. We’re staring down a climate bubble that poses enormous risks to both our environment and economy. The warning signs are clear and growing more urgent as the risks go unchecked.

         "We are building up excesses (debt in 2008, greenhouse gas emissions that are trapping heat now). Our government policies are flawed (incentivizing us to borrow too much to finance homes then, and encouraging the overuse of carbon-based fuels now). Our experts (financial experts then, climate scientists now) try to understand what they see and to model possible futures. And the outsize risks have the potential to be tremendously damaging (to a globalized economy then, and the global climate now)" http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/22/opinion/sunday/lessons-for-climate-change-in-the-2008-recession.html?_r=0

2047 : WHERE WILL EARTH HEAD AFTER ITS 'CLIMATE DEPARTURE'? The term “climate departure” has an odd ring, but its meaning is relatively straightforward. It marks the point at which the earth’s climate begins to cease resembling what has come before and moves into a new state, one where heat records are routinely shattered and what once was considered extreme will become the norm. http://e360.yale.edu/feature/interview_camilo_mora_where_will_earth_head_after_its_climate_departure/2783/

In Qiugang’s case, three major enterprises with little or no pollution controls churned out chemicals, pesticides, and dyes, turning the local river black, killing fish and wildlife, and filling the air with foul fumes that burned residents’ eyes and throats and sickened children. in 2007, Qiugang’s residents did something about it. http://e360.yale.edu/feature/the_warriors_of_qiugang_a_chinese_village_fights_back/2358/

SOLAR POWER:  CHINA LEADS WORLD TO SOLAR POWER RECORD IN 2013 In the last two years, countries around the world have added almost as much new solar photovoltaics (PV) capacity as had been added since the invention of the solar cell. Nearly 38,000 megawatts of PV came online in 2013, a new annual record. In all, the world’s installed PV generating capacity is now close to 140,000 megawatts—enough to power each home in Germany. Falling costs and effective policies continue to drive tremendous growth in solar power. http://www.earth-policy.org/indicators/C47/solar_power_2014

Ashley Bogar's curator insight, April 1, 10:20 AM

Come April of 2015 China is ready to set a new law that gives Beijing more power against factories that are polluting the environment. This new law will allow them to punish business officials and place protected regions off-limits to industrial development. This new law states that the environment is a priority and will give the power to environmental enforcers to “veto” production in the industries until they have met their targets. They are also looking to eliminate the punishment of maximum fine as companies will pay this fine and still continue on with their same procedures.

I think that it is important for people to see a CSR program within their government and I feel that it is too strongly geared towards strictly corporations. We have seen in some cases such as the United States where ultimately the corporations run the show but the government needs to take responsibility as they have put themselves in the position to take care of the people and they need to live up to it.

I believe that getting rid of the fine penalty will be very beneficial for Beijing, you see too many cases where through a cost/benefit analysis companies will chose to take the risk of a maximum fine as they will still make more profit. An alternate solution such as a shutdown of the company whether it is permanent or temporary will be a greater threat and result in a greater desired outcome and better cooperation

The Guardian, March 17, 2014
TOXIC TRAIL:  HOW A LANDMARK SUPERFUND CLEANUP PROGRAM LEAVES ITS OWN TOXIC LEGACY.

Below some of the world’s most expensive real estate, in the heart of Silicon Valley, pipes and pumps suck thousands of gallons of contaminated water every hour from vast underground toxic pools.

Giant industrial filters trap droplets of dangerous chemicals at the surface, all in the hope of making the water drinkable again and protecting the workers of tech giants such as Google and Symantec from toxic vapors. Often the original mess is almost untreatable. In Silicon Valley’s case, it would take 700 years of continuous treatment to make the groundwater drinkable. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ng-interactive/2014/mar/-sp-toxic-waste-silicon-valley-trail

Two weeks ago, charity: water founder Scott Harrison hiked nine hours into a remote village in northern Ethiopia. He spent five nights living with the community, hoping to learn more about a girl whose story he'd heard over a year ago. What follows isn't a typical charity: water story. There are no pictures of smiling children or clean water, and there's no happy ending yet. However, we believe it should be told as it illustrates the urgency of our work and the reality of the water crisis. https://medium.com/thoughts-from-the-third-sector/979160375b4a

▶  RIVERS WORK BEST WHEN THEY'RE WET. The water supply system in the Colorado River Basin is near its breaking point. Despite an above normal snowpack in the Rockies, climate change and prolonged drought have sapped the once-vigorous Colorado River, threatening the water supply for 36 million people, 15% of the nation’s agriculture, and a $26 billion recreation economy. - See more at: http://www.americanrivers.org/blog/rivers-work-best-when-theyre-wet/#sthash.jLQdgH3h.dpuf

▶  2012 BROUGHT EXTREME HEAT AND DROUGHT.  BUT THAT'S NOTHING TO WHAT'S AROUND THE CORNER

    2012 was the hottest year on record in the United States. Widespread drought, wildfires and extreme heat affected human health and caused food prices to skyrocket. According to new research out of Columbia University, however, last year’s heat wave may be nothing compared to what’s just around the corner.

    Researchers at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory predict that a megadrought, the likes of which haven’t been experienced since the 12th century, could hit planet Earth within the next eight years, and it might never leave [PDF]. The cause? According to scientists, this drought will be brought on by “anthropogenic radiative forcing”, also known as ‘stronger-than-norm
