John McCain urges action on Great Barrier Reef and Paris climate deal

John McCain urges action on Great Barrier Reef and Paris climate deal

The death of the Great Barrier Reef is one of the “great tragedies of our lives,” said US Sen. John McCain, arguing that the United States should confirm its commitment to the Paris climate deal or join with modifications Children.

Speaking in Sydney on Tuesday night, the veteran and former presidential candidate of the ruling Republican Party said that climate change is real and undoubtedly it was up to world leaders to act now to halt and reverse global warming.

“I think climate change is real. I think one of the great tragedies of our life is the Great Barrier Reef will die [and] the environmental consequences of this,” he said.

The position of the second carbon emitter in the world in the Paris agreement on climate change is uncertain and subject to worldwide speculation. The US commitment to reduce emissions or otherwise could have significant ramifications for other countries that support their promised cuts.

Donald Trump said he will announce this week whether the United States will honor the Paris carbon reduction commitments it agreed to in 2015 under its predecessor, Barack Obama.
McCain said he wanted to see the United States remain in the Paris agreement. “I would like to see … or accept the agreements that have been made by the Obama administration or suggest changes that would make us very tiresome and acceptable for us to join us.
“If we do not address this question, I am very afraid of what the world will look like for our children and grandchildren.”

Climate change has caused unprecedented mass whitening events in 2016 and 2017 on the Great Barrier Reef, killing nearly half of its coral.

The federal government’s and Queensland government’s two-year plan to protect the reef by 2050 would already be redundant because the impacts of climate change are much more severe than expected.

Recent studies have found that whitening is much smaller than expected, with more than 70% of the coral in shallow waters north of Port Douglas died last year.

McCain was in Australia as a guest of the US Center for Studies at the University of Sydney. In a far-reaching speech, he acknowledged that the Trump administration sank into the scandal, but urged US allies to stay in the US while sailing in difficult times.

He said that the reputation of the United States had suffered during the first months of Trump’s presidency as scandals over relations with Russia, nepotism, FBI investigations and founding relations with other world leaders shaken the administration with the paralyzing consistency .
“We are going through a difficult time,” McCain said. “We are really, and to tell you that we are not politicians, it is not fair, but we have been through other difficult times.” I remember the Watergate scandal and the way a president fired. President, but we are in a scandal, and every drop another drop of shoes of this centipie, and we must succeed.

McCain said US observers should look beyond the president.

“Our foreign friends have always tended to focus on the person in the White House, but the United States is much larger than that, America is our courts of law.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favor to ask. More people read The Guardian as always, but much less paid. Advertising revenues in the media are rapidly falling. And unlike many news organizations, we have not set up a payment wall – we want to keep our journalism as open as possible. So you can see why you need to ask for their help. Guardian’s independent investigative journalism needs a great deal of time, money, and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe that our point of view is important, as it could also be your point of view.

If everyone who reads our reports, who loves, helps to maintain our future would be much safer.

Paris Agreement: Is the State Department Running Its Own Game?

Paris Agreement: Is the State Department Running Its Own Game?

Paris Agreement: Is the State Department Running Its Own Game?

Secretary of State Tillerson caused when an uprising on May 11, the Fairbanks Declaration was signed at the tenth ministerial meeting of the Arctic Council, an intergovernmental body made up of eight nations and the Arctic zone. Tillerson’s signature was interesting because the Declaration contains several statements expressing increased concern about climate change and the stronger commitments to remedy that President Trump has expressed to date.

For example, the Declaration calls for climate change “the most serious threat to Arctic biodiversity,” notes “with concern” the “urgent need and mitigation and adaptation actions for growth” and affirms the need for “Global action” for Reduce greenhouse gas emissions “” “.

According to most media accounts, the Declaration does not prejudge the way in which President Trump especially in the climate policy in general or the Paris Climate Agreement. As has been said by a State Department official, although the Fairbanks Declaration “take note” of the entry into force of the Paris Agreement, “which does not oblige the United States to implement.” Other Council members such as Finland , They wanted a stronger language. Tillerson was pushed back, saying in a speech prepared:

In the United States, we are examining a number of important policies, including how Trump management will address the issue of climate change. We thank each of you have an important point of view, and you should know that we take the time to understand your concerns. Do not rush to make a decision. We will work to make the right decision for the United States. The Arctic Council will continue to be an important platform as we deliberate on these issues.

Thus, by all appearances, the Fairbanks Declaration does not conflict with the promise of two-part Trump campaign to cancel United States participation in the Paris Agreement and stop payments to programs the UN global warming, Including the Green Climate Fund. The reality is different.

Section 31 (page 6) of the Declaration states that the Council:

Recognizing the importance of scientific assessments and projections for informed decision-making in the Arctic, the integration of traditional and local knowledge and the dependence of biodiversity and Arctic residents on freshwater availability, welcome the Updated assessment of snow, water, ice and permafrost in the Arctic, note with concern the conclusions and adopt its recommendations. [Emphasis added]

It looks like a harmless lake, but it is not. Section 31 adopts the recommendations of an April 2017 report entitled “Snow, Water, Ice and Permafrost in the Arctic.” The summary of the decision concludes:

The Arctic states, the permanent members and observers of the Arctic Council should individually and collectively, the global lead efforts for rapid, ambitious and comprehensive implementation of the Paris Agreement of COP 21, including efforts to reduce emissions of climate- Short (P. 18) [Emphasis added]

Therefore, by reference, the Fairbanks Declaration recommends the USA. To lead the global efforts for “early, ambitious and comprehensive implementation of the Paris Agreement”. It is now the official position of the United States government. However, Trump did not retract his campaign promise, and recently, during his one hundred-day speech in Scranton, Pennsylvania, he has compared the Paris agreement to arms dealing with Iran, considering it as a “one-sided agreement” Where the US Pays thousands While China, Russia and India have contributed and will contribute nothing. ”

The preamble to the Declaration reaffirms “UN Sustainable Development Goals and the need to achieve that by the year 2030.” Fairbanks Here reference is made to UN resolution A / RES / 70/1 “The Transformation of our World: 2030 Program for Sustainable Development”, adopted in September 2015. The purpose of Resolution 13 is “to take urgent action Fight against climate change and its impacts “(p.27). One of the sub-objectives is:
Ble. “This is exactly the kind of” unilateral “Trump deal denigrated in Scranton.

Shell warns US on dangers of abandoning Paris climate accord

Shell warns US on dangers of abandoning Paris climate accord

Ben van Beurden, CEO of Royal Dutch Shell, warned that Donald Trump would disadvantage US companies and weaken the global position of the United States if it comes out of the Paris climate deal.

Mr. van Beurden beat the ranks of executives who have been reluctant to publicly defy the US president by saying that Mr. Trump’s commitment to abandon the Paris auto-vaincerait agreement.

“It would be useless on several fronts,” he said, telling the Financial Times in the Anglo-Dutch oil company’s Washington office, and a declared partisan of Paris.

“Since the US is the biggest investment destination for a company like Shell, yes, I think I would regret having a lot of business here that could be at a disadvantage because of the implications of this decision outside of Paris. ”

M. Trump has spent weeks considering the campaign pledge to end the agreement on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but the decision was slowed when the White House was swallowed up in a series of unrelated attacks.

“What I think would happen because of the [withdrawal] is that the US weaken its hand on the basis of a number of [commercial] tables,” said Mr. van Beurden, citing international trade negotiations as an example.

Mr. van Beurden’s comments come just weeks after Jeff Immelt, president and CEO of GE, has called M. Trump to keep the United States in the climate deal in Paris. “We are staying in the treaty. I think the global commitment is good,” said M. Immelt.

With the Trump administration split by divisions in Paris, the White House said earlier this month that M. Trump had delayed his decision on the deal until a presidential trip to the Middle East and Europe, which began Friday.

Shell plans to gradually increase its spending on green technology, for the world reduces its reliance on fossil fuels, privacy of the company.

If the US risk In support of renewable energy integrated into the Paris agreement, this could adversely affect US manufacturers that have experienced an increasing demand for wind turbines, solar panels and other electrical equipment.

. . . The United States would weaken the hand to rely heavily on a number of tables.
Ben van Beurden
“The United States has a significant collection of companies offering the technologies that will be relevant to the energy transition,” said Mr. van Beurden, “and in one way or another, it is likely to find more disadvantaged by the US [in Paris] So I do not see where the increase is.

In addition to the protest of the M. Trump ban on immigration from several predominantly Muslim countries, most CEOs welcomed the president’s business interests and avoided criticizing specific policy measures or disputes.

However, a series of setbacks for the White House has undermined the hopes of Trump investors in the US economy. Last week, US stocks fell in response to reports that the president had pushed the FBI director to drop a probe into Russia, but has recovered some of its losses.

M. Trump pledged to release the full force of fossil fuels and made an early decision with an executive order to reverse President Barack Obama’s attempt to ban drilling in the Arctic and on the Atlantic coast of the United States.

Mr. van Beurden said “let’s take a look” opportunities in the Atlantic but would not return to the Alaska seas, where Shell has not found significant reserves with a well drilled in 2015. “Arctic at sea? No. We’ve got our episode there, we know what it takes, how hard it can be. ”

No country can annul the Paris agreement, and action against climate change defenders have shown good face to the victory of M. Trump, arguing that the world even without the United States.

Overwatch tease points to – moon map? New hero? Lore dump? You decide

The developer has launched a new blog and a series of images related to the lunar horizon colony, which has registered a few years later, according to the Overwatch experience.

For those of you who have not reestablished the scattered narrative Overwatch, Moon Colony Horizon was where Lucheng Interstellar posed a series of genetically enhanced gorillas for use in space tests. (Winston was, of course, one of the test subjects.) The colony was taken offline when the gorillas rebelled and the contact stopped shortly thereafter.

And now for the inevitable “so far,” according to a new blog post on Overwatch, Lucheng Interstellar revealed that “databases and colony monitoring systems are still in operation that day.”

“Although no direct communication has been established with the facility, the company managed to retrieve interpersonal records sent days and moments before the base will lose contact with the Earth,” it appears. You can see below.

Although the connection to Cologne lunar horizon is unstable, Lucheng is also able to retrieve an image of the surveillance system. As you can see, Winston is not the only specimen to lose. Where is Hammond? You will notice that your name is mentioned in the previous messages.

So what does all this mean? We are sure that this is a clue to highlight a new card on the Moon. That said, Blizzard also said that the new shorts of overwatch animation comes, and it is possible that all this accumulates in a new broadcast or cartoon another update of the tradition, since fans always demand more content history.

It seems unlikely that we raise provocations for a new event while the blizzard focuses on Overwatch anniversary and in any case the developer says we will not see any new events in the second year. In addition, Blizzard said we’re going to get only about four new overwatch hero a year, so do not expect a second gorilla joining the cast either.

(If there is a new hero along the way, and it’s a space theme, let it be Jetpack Cat In A, the most unfortunate Overwatch concept.)

Anyway, we can expect that almost certainly an update in the next few days, since Blizzard said he did not want to drag Overwatch’s strengths as he did with ARG Shadow.

New Zealand to spend $14 billion to meet Paris Agreement targets

New Zealand to spend $14 billion to meet Paris Agreement targets

New Zealand to spend $14 billion to meet Paris Agreement targets

Newshub can reveal the cost to the New Zealand economy to meet Paris Agreement targets will be $1 billion every year for a decade

But that money won’t be spent on reducing New Zealand’s domestic emissions, it’ll go towards paying other countries to reduce their emissions.

In documents released under the Official Information Act, a briefing to Judith Collins on her first day as energy minister says the cost to the economy of buying international carbon units to offset our own emissions will be $14.2 billion over ten years.

Carbon trading is the process of buying and selling permits and credits to emit carbon dioxide.

In the documents, officials say “this represents a significant transfer of wealth overseas”, and also warn “ an over reliance on overseas purchasing at the expense of domestic reductions could also leave New Zealand exposed in the face of increasing global carbon prices beyond 2030”.

The cost amounts to $1.4 billion annually.

The Green Party says the bill will only get bigger if no action is taken by the government to reverse climate pollution, and continues to open new coal mines and irrigation schemes.

Co-leader James Shaw argues it’s cheaper for New Zealand to reduce domestic emissions, and it’s risky to take a gamble on an international carbon price which is subject to increase.

“The government has always said it’s too costly for New Zealand to reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions, but what these documents show is they haven’t been completely straight with the public because they haven’t been talking about the cost of paying other countries to do it for us.”

The Morgan Foundation calculated that in 2014, New Zealand spent about $3.9 million on carbon credits to offset its domestic emissions.

It’s not yet known where the money will come from to foot the $14.2 billion dollar bill.

Businesses reliant on carbon-intensive transport will be required to buy international credits to account for their emissions, while the government will wear the cost of buying credits for industries exempt from the Emissions Trading Scheme such as agriculture.

New Zealand’s pledge under the Paris Agreement is to reduce emissions by 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030.

Trump still ‘wide open’ on climate change, Pentagon chief says

Trump still ‘wide open’ on climate change, Pentagon chief says

President Trump decided whether the United States should remain an integral part of Paris’s most representative climate deal, Defense Secretary James Mattis said Trump remains “wide open” on this issue.

During a visit to Europe, which ended Saturday Trump dismayed European allies, by refusing to commit to remain in the 2015 agreement in talks with representatives of the European Union in Brussels and the group of Seven meeting in Sicily. The president said in a tweet he was going to make a decision this week.

Mattis, who was present at some of the Brussels talks, said Trump always decides and was curious about the opinions of other leaders.

“The president was open – I was curious as to why other people were in their position, counterparts from other countries,” the Defense Secretary said in an interview broadcast Sunday in “Face the Nation” CBS.

“And I’m sure the President is very open on this issue as he takes the advantages and disadvantages of this agreement.”

During his trip to Europe, Trump met privately with Vatican Francis, who presented a copy of his papal encyclical on the environment and climate change. French President Emmanuel Macron, who met with Trump in Brussels, also said he had highlighted the problem with the President of the United States, although the White House did not mention the call in a summary of his meetings.

EXAMINING THE LEGAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE PARIS AGREEMENT

EXAMINING THE LEGAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE PARIS AGREEMENT

EXAMINING THE LEGAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE PARIS AGREEMENT

This morning, 22 Republican senators sent President Trump a letter asking him to withdraw from the Paris Convention because 1) he presents “a significant litigation risk” to EPA’s efforts to eliminate the Clean Energy Plan and 2) that could be used In an attempt to force the EPA to begin CO2 regulation in section 115 of the Clean Air Act. As proof of that threat, senators cite public statements I made last year under which the environmental community views Article 115 as its “silver bullet” [sic] day.

First, the Paris Agreement offers no legal tribute to defend EPA’s efforts to eliminate the clean energy plan; As I explained a short time ago, not less than a case of Massachusetts v. EPA puts that idea to the test.

Second, a silver bullet is “something that acts like a magic weapon: Concretely: An instant that solves a long-standing problem” A silver ball is not a solution to anything else, we are saying this, killing The werewolves. I wrote that not only are there enormous legal obstacles to the use of Article 115 in the manner envisaged by environmentalists, but even attempt to do so will certainly cause a political frenzy.

Ironically, refusing to take action to address climate change, these 22 senators lay the groundwork for the next Democratic administration to try to use Article 115 in the way they fear. The purpose of my remarks was that this day drew attention to the real risk that even the Congressional inaction leading to a future EPA would impose such a regulatory regime. As I said at the time:

If between 10 and 12 years, Congress has done nothing, and the EPA is trying a 115 approach, and it reaches the Supreme Court, five or more judges might say, look, Congress did nothing. The executive has at least one law that says the works and has a solution to this problem.

So if these senators are concerned that the Paris Agreement lead to this outcome, the best remedy is to prevent this attempt. Instead of withdrawing the United States for an international agreement that will be easy to achieve, they could take action to get a carbon price, leaving Article 115, being a small and relatively obscure part of the Clean Air Act ….

Mattis says Trump “wide open” on Paris climate accord

President Trump is “very open” on whether the United States should remain in the Paris climate deal, Defense Secretary James Mattis said “Face the Nation” in an interview on Saturday.

The president promised during his campaign to withdraw the United States from the pact, an international agreement in nearly 200 countries to limit carbon emissions in order to fight against climate change.

Mr. Trump’s advisers are divided on the basis of the United States. The president, during his visit to the G7 summit in Europe this week, refused to join other national leaders to reaffirm his commitment to the Paris Agreement. He said on Twitter this week that he would make a final decision on the issue next week.

Face-Nation presenter John Dickerson on Saturday called on the Secretary of Defense to take the Paris agreement, in particular, on the role of national security in climate change.

“Obviously we had a discussion about our policy in this regard,” Mattis said. “I was about to participate in some of the discussions in Brussels, through climate change, and the president was open was curious why the others were in the position they were in – their counterparts from other countries – and I’m pretty sure That the president is very open on this issue as it takes the advantages and disadvantages of this agreement. ”

Mattis also said that the United States’ position on climate change is beyond its competence as Secretary of Defense.

“Frankly, this is not in my portfolio. Obviously, we are dealing with aspects of climate change in the Ministry of Defense, and for us, it is just one of many factors that we approach to what we call the physical environment.”
