But global warming will. Eleven teams participated in a recent Stanford Energy Modeling Forum (EMF) project, examining the economic and environmental impacts of a carbon tax. The studies included “revenue recycling,” in which the funds generated from a carbon tax are returned to taxpayers either through regular household rebate checks (similar to the Citizens’ Climate Lobby [CCL] and Climate Leadership Council [CLC] proposals) or by offsetting income taxes (similar to the approach in British C..  show all text

The natural gas “bridge” to sustainability may be shorter than expected. For around 10 years, the conventional wisdom in the energy sector has been that natural gas is ascendant. Coal is dirty, and it’s getting expensive, but it’s too early to jump all the way to renewable energy. To get from the fossil fuel present to the renewable future, we will need ... a bridge. Natural gas is meant to be that bridge, a way to reduce our emissions relative to coal while we work on scaling up renewables. (T.  show all text

<![CDATA[We’ve entered the era of ‘fire tsunamis’ | Grist]]> Fri, 6 Jul 2018 22:40:06 +0000 grist.org - Eric Holthaus
Life in the Rocky Mountains is frequently extreme as blizzards, baking sun, and fires alternate with the seasons. But fire tsunamis? Those aren’t normal. On Thursday, one observer described a “tsunami” of flames overnight at the Spring Creek fire near La Veta in the south-central part of the state. And you can’t stop tsunamis. “It was a perfect firestorm,” Ben Brack, incident commander for the Spring Creek fire, told the Denver Post. “You can imagine standing in front of a tsunami or tornado an.  show all text

@climatetruth: Pruitt is out, but Big Oil is still in. We celebrate Pruitt's resignation! But, here’s the bad news: Andrew Wheeler now steps in as acting EPA admin. He's a former coal lobbyist and will take the fossil fuel baton from Pruitt’s dirty hands. #PruittBooted nytimes.com/2018/07/05/cli…

@climatetruth: NYT has a good primer on the new acting EPA director, Andrew Wheeler. Wheeler recently was a lobbyist for the coal company Murray Energy. He is a former chief of staff to Sen. James Inhofe, arguably D.C.'s most prominent climate change denialist. nytimes.com/2018/07/05/cli…

@PeterWSinclair: Trump’s new acting EPA director described as a “consummate Washington insider”: Andrew Wheeler was a coal lobbyist and, prior to that, chief of staff to GOP Senator Inhofe, D.C.'s most prominent climate change denialist. nytimes.com/2018/07/05/cli…

@350: The most dangerous thing about Scott Pruitt wasn't his personal corruption—it was his destructive, fossil-fueled agenda. Now, Trump just traded one big polluter crony for another. Protecting people & the planet is still up to all of us. #BootPruitt mobile.nytimes.com/2018/07/05/cli…
