The Guardian view on Britains aviation addiction, as Boris Johnsons airport plan gets turned down | Editorial 3.9.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The London mayors Thames estuary plan always lacked seriousness but so does an entire debate which ignores the carbon costs of flying Mr Johnsons estuary proposal, as it is never described, has loomed large in the aviation debate, despite its abject lack of seriousness. Londons mayor put forward an entirely new airport on the Isle of Grain, which would cost five to 10 times as much as expanding Heathrow. The technocratic Airports Commission were bound to reject it, although they chickened out of quite saying so to Boris Johnson last year, agreeing to give his pet project one final look, even as they dropped it from the shortlist . Yesterday, adding new arguments about birdlife and the sheer dislocation of moving the capitals main airport 70 miles to their original cost concerns, they finally gave the formal thumbs down . Mr Johnson was having none of it insisting his scheme was not dead at all , because in the end it will not be for Sir Howard Davies and his commissioners to decide, but instead for the ...

Put a price on nature? We must stop this neoliberal road to ruin 24.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The failure of the markets hasn't stopped the rise of the gobbledygook-filled Nature Capital Agenda. We can This is the transcript of George Monbiot's SPERI Annual Lecture, hosted by the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Sheffield. Ladies and gentlemen, we are witnessing the death of both the theory and the practice of neoliberal capitalism. This is the doctrine which holds that the market can resolve almost all social, economic and political problems. It holds that people are best served, and their prosperity is best advanced, by the minimum of intervention and spending by the state. It contends that we can maximise the general social interest through the pursuit of self-interest. "[the government] is a self-seeking flea on the backs of the more productive people of this world. ... governments do not run countries, they parasitize them." Look, we are failing spectacularly to protect the natural world and we are failing because people arent valuing it enough. Companies ...

Australia repeals controversial carbon tax. Will others follow? 18.7.2014 MinnPost
Sydney —  Australia  has become the first nation in the developed world to wind back legislation aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, after the Senate voted to scrap the controversial carbon tax on Thursday. The vote has delivered a major victory to the conservative government of  Prime Minister Tony Abbott , who went into last year’s election promising to abolish the “toxic tax” which he said threatened the nation’s economy, the world's 12th largest. After days of tense negotiations the repeal bill passed the Senate 39 to 32. The scrapping of the carbon tax comes as Australia prepares to host the  G20 summit  in Brisbane in November.  United States   President Barack Obama , who recently unveiled a plan to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 30 percent by 2030 from 2005 levels, wants climate change to be one of the main items on the G20’s agenda. But Mr. Abbott, who has questioned the science of human-caused climate change, is resisting the move. The issue was a  major sticking ...
