What you need to know following the Copenhagen climate summit 24.12.2009 Grist Magazine
Co-authored by Rebecca Lefton. The international negotiations on climate change wrapped up Dec. 19 in Copenhagen. The conference achieved an interim agreement, known as the Copenhagen Accord, which could put the major polluting nations on a pathway to reducing global warming pollution, and it continues to set the expectation for U.S. domestic action on climate change. Much work remains, but there were also numerous notable achievements and meaningful insights into how the United States can gain from leading the world toward a new international clean-energy agreement. A “meaningful” deal on climate mitigation President Barack Obama left Copenhagen Friday night after personally working to secure agreement from China, South ...

Obama to world in Copenhagen: “We will do what we say.” Now tell it to the Senate. 23.12.2009 Grist Magazine
“There is no time to waste. America has made our choice. We have charted our course, we have made our commitments, and we will do what we say.” —President Obama, speaking to world leaders in Copenhagen December 18 “Kan Han?” (Can He?) So implored the headline and full-page picture of President Obama on the front of the Copenhagen MetroXpress on December 18, the day the President flew in to rescue the climate summit. With negotiations on the verge of collapse, Obama narrowly averted a total disaster with a strong show of determination and some deft eleventh-hour negotiating.  The talks failed to produce a formal and comprehensive commitment to climate solutions, but they did deliver some important pieces of ...

Is Copenhagen a ‘nothing burger’ to the Senate? ‘Not a chance in hell,’ says 23.12.2009 Grist Magazine
Now that President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have returned from Copenhagen with a draft accord committing China , India, and the United States to a new era of climate action, the onus lies on the U.S. Senate to pass ambitious clean energy legislation. “ Not a chance in hell that after the president put American prestige on the line in Copenhagen that the Senate is going to give this issue anything less than a major push,” Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) told reporters. “This is big—big—bigger than any individual agenda.” Unfortunately, many members continue to treat the dire need to reduce emissions and rebuild our economy as a political football. In particular, members who previously used China and ...

Post-Copenhagen pledge: Coal free future begins in Kentucky 22.12.2009 Gristmill
This post was co-written by Stephanie Pistello, Ben Evans, and Ben Sollee, co-founders of the  Coal Free Future Project . On the heels of the Copenhagen Climate Summit, we plan to make our own post-Copenhagen pledge here at home: It’s time to envision a coal-free future. It’s time for clean energy independence.   For those of us in the anti-mountaintop removal and anti-coal-fired plant movements, we believe this means we must start in coal country. For starters, here in Kentucky we disagree with Commerce Lexington that energy legislation is “the most immediate threat to Kentucky’s business climate.” Nothing could be further from the truth for Lexington, Kentucky, and the rest of our nation. Dirty ...
