California Bucks Global Trend with another Year of GHG Reductions 21.11.2017 Main Feed - Environmental Defense
By Jonathan Camuzeaux This post was co-authored by Maureen Lackner and originally appeared on the EDF Talks Global Climate blog . The California Air Resources Board’s November 6  release  of 2016 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data from the state’s largest electricity generators and importers, fuel suppliers, and industrial facilities shows that emissions have decreased even more than anticipated. California’s emissions trends are showing what is possible with strong climate policies in place and provide hope even as  new analysis  projects that global emissions will increase by 2% in 2017 after a three-year plateau. California’s emissions kept falling in 2016 The 2016 emissions report, an annual requirement under California’s regulation for the  Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (MRR) , shows that emissions covered by the state’s cap-and-trade program are shrinking, and doing so at a faster pace than in prior years. Covered emissions have dropped each year that cap and trade has been in ...

Tom Goldtooth: Carbon Trading Is "Fraudulent" Scheme to Privatize Air and Forests to Permit Pollution 17.11.2017 Truthout - All Articles
In South Dakota, the energy company TransCanada says it shut down part of its pipeline Thursday after a rupture spilled 210,000 gallons of oil in a field near Amherst. The pipeline carries a highly polluting form of oil called "diluted bitumen."

We speak with one of the report's co-authors, Tom Goldtooth, executive director of the Indigenous Environmental Network, and Isabella Zizi from Richmond, California, home to a massive Chevron oil refinery.
