SACRAMENTO — California has expanded its market for buying and trading permits to emit greenhouse gases to include the Canadian province of Ontario.

Trump Railed Against China While Abandoning Paris. His Views Are Wildly Outdated. 2.6.2017 Mother Jones
President Donald Trump announced Wednesday afternoon that the US will abandon the historic Paris climate agreement—promising to "begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord or an entirely new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States." In doing so, Trump characteristically railed against China—labeling it an economic foe and arguing it got the best end of the deal. "They can do whatever they want in 13 years, not us," he said of China's emissions plans. Casting the deal as an erosion of US sovereignty, Trump added that "the rest of the world applauded when we signed the Paris agreement. They went wild. They were so happy. For the simple reason that it put our country, the United States of America, which we all love, at a very, very big economic disadvantage." But here's the reality: In the Paris agreement, China, for the first time, set a date at which it expects its climate emissions will "peak," or finally begin to taper downward: around 2030. That goal came about after the US ...

Salesforce achieves net zero carbon emissions, ahead of schedule 13.4.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Cloud computing giant Salesforce said Thursday that it has achieved net zero greenhouse gas emissions — a rare milestone for a company of its size. Salesforce sustainability director Patrick Flynn said the company achieved its goal primarily by offsetting its greenhouse gas emissions with investments in carbon credit projects in Honduras and India. The company, which paid another firm to review its emissions records, said it is achieving its goal more than three decades ahead of schedule. Google has said it is buying enough wind and solar power to ensure that its operations run entirely on renewable energy this year. “In meeting their goal ahead of schedule, the company is demonstrating the power of intention and how setting a bold, public, net zero emissions goal can unleash innovation,” said Anne Kelly, senior policy director of Ceres, a nonprofit group that works with investors and businesses to encourage sustainability, in an email.
