California's "Grand Experiment" in Climate Policy is Working 22.6.2015 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
(Senate leader Kevin De Leon kicks off free low-income solar installations in Sacramento CA. Photo credit: GRID Alternatives) Sometimes we need to look back in order to see the road forward. Whenever I reflect on the success of California's climate policies, I like to hop in my time machine and dial it all the way back to ancient history - circa 2010 - when I was a young staffer in Washington D.C. fresh out of grad school with big policy dreams and an even bigger student debt. For climate advocates, they were the best of times, which quickly became the worst of times. In 2010 the Senate was considering a federal climate bill to finally reign in the carbon pollution driving climate change, while jump-starting a clean energy economy to help pull us out of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Visions of hope and change ran high. But as history goes, the bill failed. Despite different accounts of how the story went down , all agree those were some dark days for the climate movement. I was ...

On Alternative Ways of Living Sustainably: Lessons From Solidarity & Social Economy in Madrid 17.6.2015 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
View from Matadero, Madrid The majority of times we think we are not free to think of the world as a unity of people all working towards human development, evolution and res-publica, which- as the Greeks taught us- means contributing to the development of the society's state of the art. I think the Greeks (along with the Romans) became the pioneers and the propellers of the management of "res publica". Democracy for them meant taking care of the people and of the res-of the things- that the citizens created for the good and the progress of society's hustle and bustle. Just think of horses and carriages, and of metro and cars. Two alternative and revolutionary ways, for the times, to facilitate transport and to allow people to freely move around the city and to get business and trade done, providing food and shelter to family and kids. In modern times, I perceive and I see on a day to day basis that if we stand by the ideals of social justice, solidarity economy, participatory economics, the work of ...

This Oil Industry “Recycling” is bad for the Environment 15.6.2015 Main Feed - Environmental Defense
By Tim O'Connor Earlier this year in Oregon, as they did in California several years ago, the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM), together with American Trucking Alliance (ATA) and Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), filed a federal lawsuit to try and derail a cutting-edge, scientifically-based, and legally sound clean fuel standard. Not discouraged by their recent losses challenging California’s clean fuels program (the Low Carbon Fuel Standard, or LCFS) in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and U.S. Supreme Court , the plaintiffs have proceeded with nearly identical constitutional law arguments – simply recycling issues and claims that were rejected many months ago. Like the California LCFS, the Oregon Clean Fuels Program reduces the carbon intensity of transportation fuels by requiring fuel sold in state to have reduced lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Compliance is based on the schedule developed by the Oregon Department of Environmental Protection and designed to spur ...
