// “Just looking at the known drivers (climate forcings) and the actual temperature history shows it directly, without need for a climate model: without the increase in greenhouse gases caused by humans, the slow cooling trend would have continued. Thus virtually the entire warming of the 20th Century is due to man. This May, for the first time in at least a million years, the concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere has exceeded the threshold of 400 ppm. If we do not stop this trend very soon, we will not recognize our Earth by the end of this century.”

imageInsideClimateNews: SERIES: Exxon: The Road not Taken http://bit.ly/1O7fltu Exxon Confirmed Global Warming Consensus in 1982 with In-House Climate Models
// 9/22/2015, InsideClimateNews has won the Pulitzer Prize

● “This eight-month InsideClimate News investigation details Exxon’s early research into global warming, based on hundreds of pages of internal documents and interviews with former employees and scientists. The company declined to provide comment or answer questions for this article.”

● “By 1981, Exxon scientists were no longer questioning whether the buildup of CO2 would cause the world to heat up. Through their own studies and their participation in government-sponsored conferences, company researchers had concluded that rising CO2 levels could create catastrophic impacts within the first half of the 21st century if the burning of oil, gas and coal wasn’t contained.”

⋙ For print-ready, see Notes
The report proposes a 10-point Global Action Plan:

1. Accelerate low-carbon transformation by integrating climate into core economic decision-making processes. This is needed at all levels of government and business, through systematic changes to policy and project assessment tools, performance indicators, risk models and reporting requirements.
2. Enter into a strong, lasting and equitable international climate agreement, to increase the confidence needed for domestic policy reform, provide the support needed by developing countries, and send a strong market signal to investors.
3. Phase out subsidies for fossil fuels and agricultural inputs, and incentives for urban sprawl, to drive more efficient use of resources and release public funds for other uses, including programs to benefit those on low incomes.
4. Introduce strong, predictable carbon prices as part of good fiscal reform and good business practice, sending strong signals across the economy.
5. Substantially reduce capital costs for low-carbon infrastructure investments, expanding access to institutional capital and lowering its costs for low-carbon assets.
6. Scale up innovation in key low-carbon and climate-resilient technologies, tripling public investment in clean energy R&D and removing barriers to entrepreneurship and creativity.
7. Make connected and compact cities the preferred form of urban development, by encouraging better-managed urban growth and prioritizing investments in efficient and safe mass transit systems.
8. Stop deforestation of natural forests by 2030, by strengthening the incentives for long-term investment and forest protection, and increasing international funding to around US$5 billion per year, progressively linked to performance.
9. Restore at least 500 million hectares of lost or degraded forests and agricultural lands by 2030, strengthening rural incomes and food security.
10. Accelerate the shift away from polluting coal-fired power generation, phasing out new unabated coal plants in developed economies immediately and in middle-income countries by 2025.

“Republicans are more likely than Democrats and independents to see Islamic extremist groups, Iran’s nuclear program, China’s emergence as a world power and the Israel-Palestinian conflict as major threats to the U.S. On the other hand, global climate change registers for Democrats as among the greatest threats to the U.S. (68% major). By comparison, just 25% of Republicans see global climate change as a major threat to the U.S.
“As in prior surveys on international threats, most Republicans say that global climate change is either a minor threat (32%) or not a threat (40%) to the U.S. Among Republicans and GOP leaners, most (62%) who agree with the Tea Party say that global climate change is “not a threat.” Non-Tea Party Republicans are divided: 39% think global climate change is a minor threat, 33% say it is a major threat and 25% say it is not a threat. …
“About half (48%) label the continuing conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians as a major threat to the U.S. The same share rates China’s emergence as a world power and global climate change as major.”

The 55 gigatons of total emissions in the 6°C warming scenario could be reduced to 39 gigatons by 2050 by taking only energy efficiency measures. Include carbon capture and widespread use of renewables, and emissions are reduced to 21 gigatons by 2050, allowing the globe to come very close to only 2°C warming in 2050.”

Thus virtually the entire warming of the 20th Century is due to man. This May, for the first time in at least a million years, the concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere has exceeded the threshold of 400 ppm.

#IPCC sees “'decarbonizing' electricity generation as a realistic goal"

NYT Editorial: Dems Stand Up to #Koch Brothers http://is.gd/EHWwxk
NYT Editorial:
● fighting the Kochs is all about standing #up4climate
“By far the largest voice in many of this year’s political races…has been that of the Koch brothers”
“the #Koch brothers…have spent tens of millions of dollars peddling phony stories about the impact of health care reform”
“Democrats may never have the same resources at their disposal — no party should”
Democrats “can use their political pulpits to stand up for a few basic principles”
The Kochs raised $407 million in the 2012 election
“individual candidates are making sure voters know who is paying for the ad blitz”
“the fundamental purpose of the Kochs’ spending is to rig the economic system for their benefit and for that of other oligarchs”
“got their money’s worth in 2010 by helping elect a Republican House majority that has resisted environmental regulation”
Reid “called it ‘un-American’ to spend lavishly to preserve tax breaks and end workplace safety standards”
“Republicans quickly rushed to the cameras to demand an apology on behalf of their benefactors”
McConnell promises to “be the leader of the forces that take on the war on coal”
The Kochs “are finally encountering some resistance”
