A Climate Policy for the People 16.11.2017 American Prospect
Alex Milan Tracy/Sipa via AP Images Environmentalists rally on the steps of the Oregon State Capitol in Salem during a lobby day organized by the Oregon Conservation Network This summer, epic storms and fires in the United States provided some worrisome climate signals. Hurricane Harvey produced rains so strong that meteorologists added new colors to their radar maps. Hurricane Irma maintained Category 5 winds for 37 hours, a record for cyclones. The “unprecedented” wildfires in northern California were a product , in part, of the unusually hot and dry summer. As the newly released Fourth National Climate Assessment makes clear, the planet is under siege. I’ve watched these disasters with a sense of dread mixed with outrage. My parents had to evacuate their Santa Rosa retirement community because of the wildfires. Luckily, their home was spared.

U.S. oil and gas resurgence expected as global energy demand grows 15.11.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
LONDON — Oil will continue growing as a source of energy for more than two decades, with the United States set to become the undisputed leader in crude and gas production, the International Energy Agency said Tuesday. The report from the Paris agency will come as grim news for officials attending global climate talks in Bonn, Germany, as they grapple with ways to contain carbon emissions. Scientists just this week said that emissions of the heat-trapping gas rose this year after three years of not growing. The energy agency said that oil production will be driven by continued growth in energy-hungry industries.
