Fossil fuel industry sustained by toxic triangle that puts 400 million at risk 17.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Political inertia, financial short-termism and vested fossil fuel interests threaten to push up global temperatures, says Oxfam Political inertia, financial short-termism and vested fossil fuel interests have formed a toxic triangle that threatens to push up global temperatures, putting 400 million people at risk of hunger and drought by 2060, Oxfam said on Friday, a week before a European Union summit to finalise a new climate and energy policy framework. In its Food, Fossil Fuels and Filthy Finance report , Oxfam warned that EU leaders must resist pressure from the fossil fuel industry, which spends at least 44 million (£35m) a year on lobbying the European bloc. The report also urged leaders to commit to cuts of at least 55% in carbon dioxide emissions, energy savings of at least 40%, and an increase in the use of sustainable renewable energy to at least 45% of the energy ...

An apology from Australia to the rest of the world is now warranted | Josh Bornstein 13.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
It almost feels as if the Enlightenment never reached our shores and climate policy is but one victim of the malaise In August 2014, the Australian parliament voted to repeal a scheme that placed a price on carbon emissions. The carbon price was working as intended: reducing carbon emissions while supporting continued economic growth. Australia was once a leader in dealing with climate change; seven years after ratifying the Kyoto protocol, it is now something approaching an international pariah. This is how the New York Times responded to the scrapping of the carbon price scheme: At a time when president Obama is seeking emissions limits on new and existing power plants, and when many scientists are arguing for major reductions in fossil-fuel use by 2050 to keep global warming within manageable limits, Australia among the worlds highest emitters per capita of carbon dioxide has chosen to become an ...
