Agelbert NOTE: The following two news items are related. The first one is an excellent example of certain people's consistent "pretty shocked" reaction to the OBVIOUS scientifically proven cause and effect relationship between Catastrophic Climate Change and Sea Level Rise.  ::)

The second story evidences that, despite all the efforts by the polluters to game the Florida energy market on behalf of fossil fuels and nuclear power, the OBVIOUS need to transition to energy sources that DO NOT cause the sea level to rise is being taken seriously.

Regardless of what the Trump 🦀 supporting climate change denier crazies babble about, even Republicans can add and subtract in biosphere math.

Miami Housing Market May Soon Be Under Water, Research Says

Rising sea levels are already beginning to reshape the real estate market in Miami, a new study shows, with potential implications for other property markets across the country. The research, published Friday in the journal Environmental Research Letters, shows that the prices of single-family homes at lower elevations are rising more slowly than those at higher elevations, suggesting that buyers and sellers are weighing the implications of short-term flooding and long-term coastal change. Evidence that low-level homes are falling behind homes at higher elevations "is pretty shocking," paper author Jesse Keenan told the Wall Street Journal, "because you can infer that this is a pricing signal from climate change."

Florida Lifts Limit on Solar Leasing

Florida regulators issued a ruling Friday that would allow solar giant Sunrun to offer residential equipment leases in the state, potentially opening the door for more Floridians to choose solar. Florida state law stipulates that only registered utilities can sell electricity, but the Florida Public Service Commission on Friday ruled that Sunrun's request for 20-year solar equipment leases is not a retail sale of electricity and therefore within the bounds of the law.

"Florida was already going to be a growth market" for solar, Bloomberg New Energy Finance analyst Hugh Bromley told Bloomberg News. "This could supercharge that."

Pruitt is Wasting Your Money but the Real Scandal is How He’s Letting Polluters Sicken You  >:(

When embattled EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt appears in front of Congress next week, he’ll likely face tough questions about his illegal phone booth, his why his lobbyist/landlord resigned, his luxury travel, exorbitant pay raises and other scandals that have even the GOP expressing concern. That said, Pruitt’s made it a point to meet with tons of Koch and Mercer-funded climate denial organizations, and hardly any environmental groups, so he’s done a commendable job of shoring up support among those who value the “free market” over public well-being.

But while all the scandals over wasting taxpayer money are of course bad, wasting taxpayers’ lives is worse. And that’s what Pruitt’s “factory of bad ideas” is trying to do. Because not only is Pruitt actively rolling back public health protections, but what few new rules he is proposing are designed make things worse.

For example, one new policy is described by The Hill as “aimed specifically at helping polluters in the oil and gas industry” by letting them regulate themselves, in essence.

Another great new Pruitt idea, the Red Team attack on climate science, is also potentially back on the table, according to E&E. That’s because one of the main White House voices opposed to the effort was energy advisor Mike Catanzaro, who is being replaced by Francis Brooke,  a 28-year-old known as “the kid.” We know the Red Team exercise is just a trick meant to confuse Americans about climate science. In this case, let’s hope tricks aren’t for “the kid,” but we won’t know until Brooke takes over.

On the rollbacks, EPA air chief Bill Wehrum told an environmental law conference that the Trump administration is still pondering what to do with regulations to limit mercury emissions from coal plants. Apparently the costs are too high to keep the rule in place, because as we all know, mercury is a totally benign and not at all worrisome pollutant. After all, it’s not mercury poisoning makes you mad as a hatter, or anything.. Oh and also, mercury makes the skin of children who are exposed turn pink and peel off. But who cares about pink kids, we’ve got coal to burn!

Yet somehow, it gets worse. Because Pruitt’s pro-smoking, Lamar Smith-pushed and front-group-backed policy to disqualify broad swaths of public health studies is moving forward, the EPA sent the proposed guidance to the White House Office of Management and Budget last week for interagency review.

But it’s such a bad idea, even one of Pruitt’s own aides, former chemical lobbyist Nancy Beck, expressed concerns in emails FOIA’d by the Union of Concerned Scientists. But she 😈 wasn’t worried that it would eliminate peer-reviewed, independent science. No, her concern was quite the opposite: that it would bar the use of industry studies.

And we all know how much industry loves its studies to find its products to be a public health hazard…


Pruitt's Troubles Mount With Lobbyist Revelations & Shell Company Investigations

EPA chief Scott Pruitt held meetings with the lobbyist married to his DC landlord despite previous statements from the agency and the lobbying firm to the contrary. On Friday, The Hill reported that filings from lobbying firm Williams & Jensen revealed that the firm's principal, Kevin Hart, reached out to the EPA this year on behalf of client Smithfield Foods. Multiple outlets reported Saturday that Pruitt had taken meetings with Smithfield executives and Hart, whose wife rented Pruitt a condo on Capitol Hill on a $50-night basis, in July of 2017. Hart announced Saturday that he would step down as the chairman of Williams & Jensen, while the New York Times this weekend ran an extensive investigation into Pruitt's hidden potential conflicts of interest linking the EPA to Oklahoma, including Pruitt's use of a shell company to purchase a home from a lobbyist.

Puerto Rico Blackout and Fracked School Shows Need for Environmental Justice

The power outage in Puerto Rico is on track to become the second largest blackout in world history, surpassed only by the outage from Hurricane Haiyan. As climate change worsens and sea levels rise, we can expect more damage from hurricanes, as higher storm surge reaches much further inland. And climate change is already contributing to increased hurricane activity in the North Atlantic since the 1970s, according to the US National Climate Assessment.


The Puerto Rico blackout is also a prime example of how, despite deniers’ fears of the cost to combat climate change, inaction is far more expensive than addressing it. The price tag to rebuild the PR grid is bigger than the alternative plan to include renewable energy, storage, and microgrids for resilience.
 
It’s also yet another example of environmental injustice. Because as Politico’s David Viknik exposed last month, the Trump administration’s response to Harvey in Texas and Irma in Florida was  much quicker and more robust than Maria in Puerto Rico. Among plenty of other concerning figures, just nine days after Harvey, FEMA had paid out over $140 million to Texans, whereas nine days after Maria they had distributed a paltry $6 million.
 
That report from not-even-a-month-ago isn’t even the latest example of how communities of color are treated vastly different than wealthy white communities. On Tuesday, Megan Jula of MotherJones reported that after an affluent white community resisted a fracking site near their school, the company decided to move its drill site. Its internal analysis, according to Jula, was that the proximity to the school meant the site was “not preferable.” 


So it selected a new site, one that was actually closer to a school. But this school is in a Hispanic community, so instead of drilling near a site that’s 77% white kids, they’ll be risking the health and well-being of a school that’s 82% hispanic.      


The location is technically legal- fracking operations are required to be 500 feet from homes, and 1,000 feet from schools. This site is 509 feet from a home and 1,360 feet from the school. Which is totally reasonable and not at all something that families should complain about. 😈

Fortunately the Sierra Club, NAACP and other environmental groups care more about these kids than the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) who approved the fracking application. They’ve filed a lawsuit, arguing that COGCC failed to address public concerns and that because the school’s playground and fields are within 1,000 feet of the fracking rig, it’s illegal.

These examples show how wrong deniers are when they claim hurricanes and climate change are no big deal and shouldn’t be talked about, or that fossil fuels are good for us and should be welcomed into our lives with open arms.


But because these risks are felt more deeply by communities of color than the old affluent white demographic of denial, odds are slim they’ll care.'

Damen Dredging Equipment launches new DOP Dredger Series

April 19, 2018 by Mike McDonald


Damen Dredging Equipment has launched a new DOP Dredger Series following the success of the DOP submersible dredge pump, which has proved its versatility across the globe.

Damen has built more than 20 DOP dredgers on a one-off basis and at least 380 DOP pumps. The DOP submersible dredge pump has been such a great success over the last 25 years because of its simple concept, which is based on a well-proven dredge pump, directly driven by a hydraulic or electric motor, assembled in a rigid housing with the ability to attach all kinds of specialised suction devices, such as mining heads or cutter units. Moreover, the DOP can easily be connected to excavators, cranes, etc.

Olivier Marcus, Damen Product Director Dredging, explains: “In the past we have had many requests for ‘ad hoc’ dredgers using a DOP pump. So we have listened to our clients and learnt from that. They told us mobility and a deep, dredging depth were vital. The knowledge and experience we have gained over the years has now led to the development of a new standard series of DOP Dredgers focusing on maximum sand production at significant depths and practical transport and assembly due to the limited unit weights.”

Dams, mining and sand winning

In recent years there has been more demand for specialised dredgers from hydroelectric dam/water reservoir operators, sand mining companies, and dredging companies carrying out sand winning for reclamation projects, he adds. “There are probably tens of thousands of hydropower dams and water reservoirs in the world built in the last decades. As the flow of the river is dramatically reduced, the sediment it carries settles by the dam. The DOP dredger is ideal to tackle dam maintenance work.”

DOP dredgers are also very good for deep sand winning. “Mining companies are going deeper and deeper for minerals. And separately, there is a lot more land reclamation taking place. The DOP dredger, with the submerged DOP pump, can go much deeper to win sand when compared to a Cutter Suction Dredger.”


Depths to 100 m

The new Damen DOP Dredger Series makes use of the standard DOP 150, 200, 250 and 350, which have a mixture capacity ranging from 600m3/h to 2,400 m3/h. Due to the use of a submerged dredge pump, the DOP Dredger is simply able to reach depths other dredgers cannot, with an ability to dredge to 100 m.  Damen is also introducing an all-electric version of the DOP Dredger, which is particularly appealing for maintenance dredging at hydroelectric dams.

Remote locations

Often projects are taking place in very remote areas, Mr Marcus adds, in the case of hydroelectric dams, high up in the mountains where road access is not easy. Here, the DOP Dredger is ideal because it is easily dismountable and transportable because even its largest components are never bigger than a standard container size. It also has a limited weight, so can be assembled with a small crane.

Quick delivery times

The Damen DOP Dredger Series can be delivered at very short notice. The DOP pumps, power packs and pontoons are standard and therefore in stock. “We can have a fully built up dredger ready for the customer within a few weeks or if customers prefer, it can be built on-site or at a location of their choice.”

It is also possible to change the suction head depending on the project, giving a lot of flexibility, he points out. For example for compact material, a cutter can be installed, or a water injection head to boost production in free flowing sand.

Mr Marcus concludes: “The DOP Dredger client benefits from Damen’s standardised products, which offer a well proven design and provide guaranteed performance, and on top of that the dredgers can be delivered promptly to the customer, no matter how remote they are.”

America’s “Actual” GDP: The Shocking Truth

BY BRIAN MAHER

APRIL 19, 2018

SNIPPET:

Economists Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff have shown that annual economic growth falls 2% per year when the debt-to-GDP reaches 60%.

When it hits 90%… they conclude one dollar of debt yields less than one dollar of output.

Debt no longer lifts… but drags.

What is America’s current debt-to-GDP ratio?

Roughly 105%.  :P

When did the U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio cross the 90% red line?

This is, when did the wine start turning to vinegar?

In 2010, it appears… shortly after the great turning point.

After 2008, argues financial advisory firm Baker & Co., “something in our economy broke.”


Before 2008, what they term “actual” GDP had always risen alongside the rising debt — whether because of it — or in spite of it.

But no longer.

Recess is Over: Americans Taking Fossil Fuels 🦀 🐉🦕🦖 to Court

Despite the panicked desperation of the industry’s PR groups claiming they're winning, the legal case against fossil fuels is gaining momentum. Juliana vs. US, in which a group of young people have sued the US for failing to take sufficient climate action, was recently assigned a court date to argue their case. And this week, another group organized by Our Children’s Trust, ages 10 to 20, filed a suit against Florida Gov. Rick Scott to compel him to take climate action.
 
Last week, a Massachusetts court ruled against Exxon, forcing them to hand over relevant documents so that the case against them could proceed. This comes on the heels of a similar ruling by a federal judge who called Exxon’s claims of a conspiracy against them “implausible” and “a wild stretch of logic”.
 
And Exxon’s worry should only be growing, as a group of local Colorado governments announced their own suit against Exxon and Suncor yesterday. While it is perhaps unsurprising for Boulder, with a reputation for being liberal, to fight fossil fuels, it is relatively shocking that one of their legal counselors is David Bookbinder of the libertarian Niskanen Center.
 
The participation by a decidedly not-lefty organization like Niskanen further undercuts Exxon’s conspiracy theory that this whole campaign is just a partisan liberal conspiracy. While the industry will point out that Niskanen is a grantee of the Rockefeller Brothers, the group’s involvement is nonetheless an important development.
 
Ideologically, while they’re far from denial, Niskanen still occupies a right-leaning position. They have spoken in cautious favor of Pruitt’s red team project, for example, and a post about climate lawsuits from September of last year was cited in a piece in the National Review (and subsequently ran in the Dallas News…). 
 
They also provide a new and unique ideological justification for the suits, in that libertarians have long held that courts, not the federal government, are best for enforcing pollution controls. The basic thinking is that someone suffering the ills of pollution can sue the polluter for damages. The court then listens to the arguments and, if necessary, determines how much the polluter should pay. This would eliminate the need for a strong centralized government to spend taxpayer money on determining acceptable levels of pollution, monitoring them, and then regulating industry to enforce compliance.
 
Realistically, the fact that polluters have tons of money and those impacted by the pollution have far less would mean the lopsided expenditures on legal teams would unfairly benefit polluters. So (like much of libertarianism) while it is a simple and elegant approach in theory, in practice it gives a clear advantage to those with resources, and disadvantage those with fewer resources at their disposal.
 
But in this case, by serving as counsel for Boulder and related municipalities, Niskanen is putting its proverbial money where its institutional mouth is, and providing pro bono legal expertise in opposition to Big Oil.
 
Traditional green groups taking on oil giants is bold, but for a center-right/libertarian group to join the fray?  :o  That’s Boulder.

DENIAL BY A DIFFERENT NAME

It’s Time to Admit That Half-Measures Can’t Stop Climate Change

By Kate Aronoff

April 17 2018, 7:00 a.m.

SNIPPET 1:

Müller, at least, is honest about this denialism — even if he prefers the term “skeptic.”

Müller’s own scientific rationale may make no sense, but his conclusion is easy on the conscience: Relax, everything will be OK. Another version of that message is being marketed across COP23. As climate scientists call for a dramatic transformation of the world’s economy, a different set of deniers is starting to coalesce around something easier — plans to seemingly tackle climate change that may well still portend planetary catastrophe, even according to conservative climate projections. Unlike Müller, they’re at the center of the climate policymaking debate in Bonn. Like its predecessor events, exhibition halls at COP23 were dotted with stalls sponsored by fossil fuel companies proselytizing carbon capture and storage technology; international investment banks eager to discuss the central role of private finance in driving the new green revolution; industry-backed think tanks exploring the necessity of spraying particulates into the air to block out the sun. The solutions coming out of high-level talks don’t inspire much more confidence.

They peddle in a set of easy fixes: a market signal here, an industrial-grade aerosol there, and the crisis will be an artifact of history, with corporate shareholders better off for it.

If you believe that, then I have a clean coal plant to sell you.

SNIPPET 2:

The relevant question isn’t whether the Earth is heating up, but what we intend to do about it. That’s a radically different conversation about climate change than the one that’s been had in America to this point. Here, decades of propaganda from the fossil fuel industry and the denialist think tanks they support have forced the debate to orbit around whether there’s a problem at all, prying open the Overton window to accommodate conspiracy theorists and Nobel Prize winners alike. That the two co-habitated for years on the same cable news panels put the climate debate on deniers’ terms, taking any discussion of reasonable, large-scale solutions — stringent regulation, massive public investment, an economy planned around reducing emissions — virtually off the table. In its place has come a parade of utopian techno-fixes and market-based solutions, dreamed up by the likes of Milton Friedman and now embraced by left and right alike. The same disinformation campaigners that created a debate over the reality of climate change have hedged their bets and staked a claim to solving a problem that they had tried to convince the world didn’t exist.

In late March, Royal Dutch Shell — Europe’s biggest oil company — released a pathway to meeting the low-bar commitment laid out in the Paris Agreement to cap warming at 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels; the actual text calls to cap it at “well below” 2 degrees Celsius. Still, the company’s decarbonization plan — to reach net-zero emissions by 2070 — is hugely ambitious. As Vox’s David Roberts notes, it’s also premised on two big fantasies: that fossil fuel production and consumption can continue at roughly similar levels for the next several decades, and that at some point between now and then we’ll figure out how to suck massive amount of carbon out from the atmosphere with so-called negative emissions technologies, which remain unproven at scale.

The kinds of wishful thinking baked into Shell’s decarbonization plan, though, are also the ones plaguing the research compiled by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, a clearinghouse for climate science from around the world where the “least-cost” pathways to decarbonization are also those anointed to keep warming below catastrophic levels. As climate modeler Glen Peters points out, the oil giant’s projections for fossil fuel consumption and negative emissions don’t differ wildly from those laid out in the IPCC’s model collection. Fittingly, then, the official account for UNFCCC tweeted a glowing review of the study.  😇 🤬

With multinationals like Shell prepared to play hardball, the debate over what to do about climate change is much harder to win than the one over whether it’s happening. Major polluters are prepared to do just that and are already coming to the table at international climate talks with ready-made plans. 😈 👹 💵 🎩 🍌 🏴‍☠️

Fossil Fuels on Trial: Where the Major Climate Change Lawsuits Stand Today

Some of the biggest oil and gas companies are embroiled in legal disputes with cities, states and children over the industry's role in global warming.

Aprill 11, 1018

BY DAVID HASEMYER

SNIPPET:

The storm of litigation could have a broad impact if it succeeds in holding fossil fuel companies accountable for the kinds of damages they foresaw decades ago, said Harold Koh, a professor of international law at Yale Law School who served as senior legal adviser to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"The industry has profited from the manufacture of fossil fuels but has not had to absorb the economic costs of the consequences," Koh said. "The industry had the science 30 years ago and knew what was going to happen but made no warning so that preemptive steps could have beentaken." 

"The taxpayers have been bearing the cost for what they should have been warned of 30 years ago," Koh added. "The companies are now being called to account for their conduct and the damages from that conduct."

Record Number of Lawmakers Sign Resolution Calling for Pruitt's 🦖 Resignation

By  Lorraine Chow

Apr. 19, 2018 08:11AM EST

A group of 39 senators and 131 representatives signed a resolution calling for the "immediate resignation" of Scott Pruitt, the scandal-plagued U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator.

The document represents a record number of senators to formally demand a cabinet official to step down.

The resolution comes in the wake of Pruitt's growing list of controversies: his request for a $43,000 sound-proof phone booth violated federal law; his $50-a-night stay at a Capitol Hill condo owned by the wife of an energy lobbyist; his questionable use of taxpayer money for first-class and charter flights, as well as a 'round-the-clock security detail; and reports that he gave large pay raises to his closest aides.

That's not to mention Pruitt's continued efforts to dismantle the legacy of the very agency he heads.

Per the resolution, "The Agency is hemorrhaging staff and experts needed to protect the health, safety, and livelihood of millions of people of the United States, with more than 700 employees of the Agency having left or been forced out of the Agency during his tenure as Administrator."

"By delaying the effective date of regulations, easing enforcement of existing regulations, and delaying implementation of new regulations, Administrator Pruitt is helping polluters at the expense of the health, safety, and livelihood of millions of people of the United States," it adds.

No Republicans added their name to the document, even though Republican Reps. Elise Stefanik (NY), Carlos Curbelo (FL) and Illeana Ros-Lehtinen (FL.) have previously called for Pruitt's resignation or firing.

The effort was led by Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) and Representative Kathy Castor (D-FL).

"During his time in office, Pruitt has waged all-out war on the bedrock protections that keep our air and water clean, prevent toxic chemicals from contaminating our communities, and safeguard the health of our kids and families," Udall said. "He has done lasting damage to public health and safety—gutting the EPA's core mission—all to benefit his campaign donors and grease the wheels for his big polluter friends."

It's not just politicians who are calling for Pruitt's ouster. More than 30 environmental and civil rights organizations, including the NAACP, the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth, took out full-page newspaper ads on Wednesday in The New York Times, the New York Post and Pruitt's home-state paper, The Oklahoman, The Hill reported.


Meanwhile, President Donald Trump 🦀 has praised Pruitt—who has carried out the administration's deregulatory agenda—for "doing a great job." 😈

Trump is reportedly fond of his EPA chief, even though John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, has urged the president to let Pruitt go.

"No one other than the president has the authority to hire and fire," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said earlier this month. "The president feels that the administrator has done a good job at EPA."

She said the White House is conducting an internal investigation into Pruitt's conduct.

Who do people think he's talking to in his soundproof booth? What do they think he's talking about? Why does it need to keep what he says so secret from everyone else in the EPA? Isn't it possible that he's engaging in RICO violations? I think the Justice Department should be investigating possible violations. And if the predicted 100K extra unnecessary deaths due to increases in pollution come to pass. he should definitely be prosecuted.

Pruitt's a crook, pure and simple.
