Lamar Smith On Climate Change 'Benefits': Melting Ice Creates New Shipping Lanes 26.7.2017 Crooks Liars
Rep. Lamar Smith, the chair of the House Science Committee wrote a bizarro op-ed that promotes all the good that global warming will cause in the world. This hasn't come from Funny or Die, The Onion or the mind of Sarah Silverman. Smith's piece, which appears in Heritage's "The Daily Signal" is aptly called: " Don’t Believe the Hysteria Over Carbon Dioxide " Rep. Smith does admit that carbon dioxide is increasing in the atmosphere, but insists it adds a lot of value to the world. He writes, "The benefits of a changing climate are often ignored and under-researched. Our climate is too complex and the consequences of misguided policies too harsh to discount the positive effects of carbon enrichment." Yes, with rising sea levels, massive storms and, rising temperatures comes a host of great growth and promise in Smith's mind. Here's just a few of the benefits Smith claims comes out of global warming. "A higher concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere would aid photosynthesis, which in turn ...

Brown signs cap and trade extension, Schwarzenegger blasts Trump 26.7.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Two California governors — one a Republican, the other a Democrat — joined together Tuesday to celebrate the extension of one of the state’s key global warming programs and slam the federal government for abandoning the climate fight. On the same spot in 2006, Schwarzenegger signed the landmark global warming law that authorized the cap-and-trade system and committed California to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. While only one Republican legislator sided with Schwarzenegger to pass that law, AB32, eight Republicans supported the new legislation, negotiated in months of closed-door talks involving Brown, legislative leaders, environmental advocates and business representatives. Schwarzenegger accused conservative Republicans, with whom he often sparred as governor, of “lying to the people” on global warming. [...] following President Trump’s move to withdraw the United States from the global climate agreement forged in Paris in late 2015, Schwarzenegger said the vote demonstrated that many ...

Can Cities and States Step Up to Fight Climate Change? 24.7.2017 American Prospect
(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli) California Governor Jerry Brown, surrounded by lawmakers, speaks of the passage of a pair of climate change measures on July 17, 2017, in Sacramento. In mid-July, California Governor Jerry Brown and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg teamed up to announce America’s Pledge, a new coalition of seven states and more than 200 cities and counties that have joined together to continue to support the Paris climate agreement’s greenhouse gas reduction goals. In the weeks since President Trump announced his intention to withdraw from Paris, cities and states have scrambled to come up with initiatives that can actually close the gap left by U.S. withdrawal. But while local governments have made impressive pledges in recent weeks to mitigate the damage caused by abandoning U.S. commitments at Paris, what those plans look like in practice—and how they can slow the increase in the greenhouse gases that are fueling climate change—remains an open question. America’s Pledge plans to ...
