- The International Energy Agency neglects the Paris Agreement with its new World Energy Outlook. The world needs better odds than a coin toss of avoiding dangerous climate change
- The climate science is clear: to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees, world leaders must immediately end public support to fossil fuels, end expansion of fossil fuel development, and begin a managed decline of the fossil fuel industry with a just transition to renewable energy.
- The embedded carbon emissions from the oil, gas, and coal in currently operating fields and mines, if they run to the end of their projected lifetimes, will take us just beyond the Paris Agreement’s 2C warming limit, and even further from the goal of 1.5C, a new study has found.
- The American Petroleum Institute is desperate. They want to clutch onto the past while the world changes around them, and the public really isn’t buying it.
- The White House just released an important document today: the final version of guidance for considering climate impacts within the NEPA process. While this document is merely guidance and “not a rule or regulation,” the updated version marks some important shifts in aligning our energy policy with our climate goals.
- Today was supposed to be the official launch of the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) Annual Energy Outlook (AEO). Just a few hours ago the EIA's site stated that it would be released today, but apparently among the things that EIA can't predict is the launch date for it's big annual report. When it is published, now supposedly at the "end of July", this report should contain the kind of hard data that energy regulators and investors desperately need to gain an accurate picture of energy in the United States today, and for the next 50 years. Except it won’t.
- Today, environmentalists delivered a letter to Energy Information Administration (EIA) Administrator Adam Sieminski requesting that “the Energy Information Administration produce a safe climate scenario or scenarios that are consistent with our nation’s climate goals.” The letter comes as the EIA’s Annual Energy Conference begins in Washington, DC.
- An enduring aspect of the EIA’s lack of attention to the urgency of the climate crisis is the lack of a projection of U.S. and/or global energy supply and demand that reflects the nation’s stated commitments to address climate change.
- Today’s ExxonMobil shareholders meeting has been a stark example of Exxon’s continued intransigence when it comes to climate change.
