Here’s the Next Big Story on Climate Change 1.7.2016 Mother Jones
Last December, the climate summit in Paris offered journalists an unprecedented opportunity to reframe the global warming story. Climate reporting used to rest on the tacit understanding that the problem is overwhelming and intractable. That no longer rings true. While we have a better understanding than ever of the potential calamity in store, we finally have a clear vision of a path forward—and momentum for actually getting there. To that end, Paris was a turning point for me personally, too: It was the end of the beginning of my career as an environmental journalist. This week I'm leaving Mother Jones after five years covering climate and other green stories. Paris underscored that it's past time for me to look beyond the borders of the United States. That's why, this fall, I'm going to undertake a Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellowship . For at least nine months, I'll move between Kenya, Uganda, and Nigeria to document how climate change is impacting food security. I see ...

Oakland City Council Votes to Ban Coal Exports in Big Win for Local Advocates 29.6.2016 Truthout - All Articles
The Oakland City Council took a strong stand against coal this week. Following a long and often emotional city council meeting -- during which whistles and cheers were at times met with boos and yelling -- the council passed an ordinance prohibiting the storage and handling of coal and petcoke at Oakland facilities, and a resolution that would specifically apply the ordinance to the Oakland Bulk and Oversized Terminal (OBOT), which is being built on the old Oakland Army Base. The meeting drew hundreds of impassioned Oakland residents, including representatives from the labor, faith, environmental, and health communities, as well as the terminal developers. Those speaking against the terminal emphasized that West Oakland already suffers the effects of disproportionate air pollution. They argued that added particulate pollution tied to the coal export terminal could elevate the risk of health problems like asthma, cancer, and lung and heart disease. Several speakers also pointed to climate change and it's ...

Lying About Science for Politics Is Evil 28.6.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Demonstrators outside the ExxonMobil shareholder meeting in Dallas, Texas, May 25, 2016. Activist investors want to hold on to their stakes in the company and prod the oil and gas giant to adopt new policies that reflect the realities of climate change. Another group is urging big institutional shareholders to dump all their fossil-fuel stocks. (Photo: Ben Torres / The New York Times) While the Democratic Party Platform Committee fell short of embracing a carbon tax and an outright ban on fracking, the Clinton and Sanders camps did come together to agree that it's time for the Justice Department to investigate fossil fuel companies for potential fraud. Bill McKibben presented the motion to the platform committee on Friday . Right now, 17 attorneys general here in the United States are investigating allegations that ExxonMobil misled the public about how the company's business model threatens the planet and public health. Those allegations are based on reports from InsideClimate News , the Guardian and ...

As the UK Exits, the Need for a Strong Climate Movement Remains 28.6.2016 Truthout.com
Britain's vote last week to leave the European Union will be a disaster for the climate -- both physical and political -- on both sides of the Atlantic. Most obvious are all of the direct impacts Britain's departure from the European Union will have on environmental policies outright. "Leave" zealots don't care much for the caps on carbon and free markets that Cameron's Tories have also shunned, and UKIP party head Nigel Farage is eager to cut through the E.U. " red tape " of environmental regulations. Worse, many Brexiteers also happen to deny temperatures are rising at all, setting them apart even from Cameron and his Tory comrades. One  recent study  found that Brexit voters are nearly twice as likely as their "Remain" counterparts to deny the existence of man-made climate change -- with two out of three thinking the media are guilty of exaggerating scientific consensus on the matter. Farage even  called  wind energy "the biggest collective economic insanity I've seen in my entire life." Fresh off the ...
