World’s Future At Stake In Congress

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Scientists:

90% of coal and 60% of oil and gas reserves must stay in the ground, for a 50/50 chance of keeping global heating below 1.5 C

COP26 coalition worth $130 trillion vows to put climate at heart of finance

GLASGOW, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Banks, insurers and investors with $130 trillion at their disposal have pledged to put combating climate change at the centre of their work, and gained support in the form of efforts to put green investing on a firmer footing. At least 19 countries are expected to commit to ending public financing for fossil fuel projects abroad by the end of 2022. Financial institutions accounting for around 40% of the world's capital committed to assuming a "fair share" of the effort to wean the world off fossil fuels.

A main aim of the COP26 talks is to secure enough national promises to cut greenhouse gas emissions - mostly from coal, oil and gas - to keep the rise in the average global temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius. U.N. climate envoy and Former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, who assembled the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ), said the finance industry must find ways to raise private money to take the effort far beyond what states alone can do.

Wind, solar, hydropower, and geothermal can power the world, Mark Z. Jacobson and Stanford research team have shown. Such a future would need 42.5 percent less energy globally, due to the greater efficiency of renewable sources. This creates a global increase of 24.3 million jobs, an annual decrease of 7 million deaths from air pollution annually, savings of more than $50 trillion in health and climate costs per year, and avoid 1.5 degrees Celsius of global warming.

The immense power of fossil fuels has transformed our modern world in vast and amazing ways. There is virtually no end to the hundreds of millions of years supply remaining to be tapped, in such lucrative new frontiers as under the melting polar icecaps, glacial territories of Greenland, and Alaska's pristine Arctic National Wildife preserve.

Other than devastating these pristine environments with mass extinctions of native people and wildlife, what could go wrong? Soaring levels of greenhouse gases are at an all-time high, with the skyrocketing temperatures that go with them. We are accelerating into a dystopian future at breakneck speed. Even as more people are beginning to understand how these events relate to our warming planet, few comprehend just how dire the crisis could become, or how quickly it is escalating.

China’s newest megacity will run entirely on renewable energy

World Economic Forum - XIONGAN IS A SMART CITY ON A WHOLE NEW SCALE In any other country, the idea of creating a new city four times the size of Manhattan powered entirely by renewable energy might sound far-fetched. But this is China, where extraordinary projects are becoming almost the norm. Speaking at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting of New Champions in Dalian this week, Shu Yinbiao, Chairman of the State Grid Corporation of China, confirmed the plans for China’s latest mega city, Xiongan New Area, to run exclusively on energy from green sources. Announced in April, the Chinese government has billed Xiongan as a smart city and a tech hub. Expected to cover 2,000 square kilometres in the future, it will redevelop an area in Hebei, close to Beijing.

Lytton, British Columbia reached 116 degrees Fahrenheit (46.1C) in June, setting an all-time heat record for all of Canada. Officially this one time, 1,000 year all-time record was broken the following day, as the temperature hit 118 degrees on June 28. This all-time record was again smashed when it reached a suffocating, incendiary 121 degrees (49.5C) on June 29. From killer heat waves to floods, climate change worsened weather extremes in 2021 | Science and technology |

As computer models have consistently forecast seemingly unbelievable numbers, meteorologists struggled to grasp how a heat wave of this magnitude could even be possible, given this region has never experienced anything of this magnitude before. Were the models wrong? Or, given climate change, should we now expect the unexpected — is this now just becoming routine? Pacific Northwest bakes under once-in-a-millennium heat dome - CBS News

A total of 569 deaths in British Columbia were found due to the life-threatening heat wave. In Portland, Oregon, 456 deaths took place due to the unsurvivable conditions for people trapped without access to air conditioning in the normally cool northwest.

Earth's Early Warning System Has Been Cut Off, Leaving Nations and People Unprepared for Sudden Catastrophic Weather Events

Drought represents a globally relevant natural disaster linked to adverse health. Agricultural communities are particularly susceptible to drought, causing greater occupational stress to farmers greater than those attributed to other factors. Increased job stress from drought brought on 4x greater incidence of pain in multiple body parts.

An early summer heatwave across the western United States broke all-time records in multiple states, with temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit for days on end. This event marked yet another climate extreme for residents of a region already suffering through a devastating drought and with last year’s horrific wildfire season records again surpassed as raging wildfires roared across California, Arizona, Colorado, Utah and Montana. Wiping out entire towns; water supplies - burning down others.

The dome of hot air over the western United States caused temperatures to skyrocket to all-time maximum temperature records fell at locations in seven different states (CA, AZ, NM, UT, CO, WY, MT). In Phoenix, Arizona, the high temperature was over 115 degrees for a record-setting six consecutive days, topping out at 118 degrees. Not to be outdone, Tucson, Arizona, set record highs on six consecutive days. The hottest temperature anywhere in the country in Death Valley hit 128 degrees. Farther than the Southwest. Salt Lake City, Utah, tied its all-time record of 107 degrees. Billings, Montana tied its all-time high of 108 degrees.

Extreme heat waves & wildfires ravaged the region stuck in a deep drought. Over 20% of the country is in the worst two categories of drought (D3-4: Extreme and Exceptional), with the vast majority of that land hitting record-setting temperatures.

The Biden administration’s current predicament demonstrates what’s at stake: The ambition of enacting comprehensive climate action has been waylaid by two centrist senators. One of them, West Virginia Democrat Manchin, owns millions of dollars in coal industry stock and has received more donations from fossil fuel and energy companies so far this election cycle than any other senator.

Manchin has demanded a reduction in the size of the budget bill, from $3.5 trillion to $1.5 trillion. He specifically opposed the proposed Clean Electricity Performance Program, a $150 billion package designed to transition America to 50 percent renewable energy by 2030, and 100 percent by 2050.

IPCC scientists call for 100 renewable energy by 2040 across the world, in order to have a 50 / 50 chance of a future livable world. In effect this means we have about 10 years to achieve the 100 percent transition. The Climate Emergency has been calling for this for the past 10 years already. Their TCM Victory Plan shows how it can be achieved, to leave future generations a livable world with far greater certainty! The TCM Victory Plan complements the other highly compatible plans that have been compiled, including Mission 2020 and Project Drawdown.

Senator Manchin At COP 26 Climate Conference In Scotland

Sen. Joe Manchin’s role in overhauling the Build Back Better spending bill has sparked national interest in reining in Congressional conflicts of interest. The question is whether anything meaningful might come of it. Youth climate activists asked Senator Joe Manchin at the COP 26 Climate Change Conference in Scotland multiple times, surrounding him as he slowly tried to drive his Maserati through the crowd. Demanding to know whether their futures were worth the profits he is making, and chanting “We want to live!” Five young people leading the activists earlier this week ended a two-week hunger strike, demanding real action on the climate crisis from Washington.

Famine, economic collapse, a sun that cooks us: What climate change could wreak — sooner than we think.

The slowness of climate change is a fairy tale, bundled in an anthology of delusions: that global warming is an Arctic saga, unfolding along sea level and coastlines, that it is a crisis of the “natural” world, not an enveloping crisis sparing no place and leaving no life intact, and that our human encampments lie beyond nature's reach, not inescapably overwhelmed by it; that wealth is a shield against the ravages of warming; that the burning of fossil fuels is the established permanent changeless vehicle price of continued economic growth; that the technology it produces, will allow us to engineer our way out of environmental disaster; that there is historic precedent to the scale of this threat, to give us confidence in staring it down. None of this is true. No I don't think Hank done it this away . .

On Passing the Historic $1T Infrastructure & $3.5T Build Back Better / Climate Bills


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports the increasingly urgent threats of global climate change require an immediate, massively accelerated and expanded transition from the outdated fossil fuel utilities, to state of the art renewable energy infrastructure, using the world's most abundant energy resources - solar, wind, geothermal, and energy efficiency - now the established as the lowest most cost-effective power technologies. Coal and oil power costs continue to rise, forcing the shut down of the aging plants, that are no longer affordable profitable to operate.

Solar Power Generation in the US: Too expensive, or a bargain?

In order for the United States to regain its competitive position in the global economy, create high paying jobs across a wide range of the economic sector, attract the new generations of aspiring young people to rewarding careers and communities, we must pick up the pace of the transition to the renewable energy economy that began 50 years ago. The U.S. has steadily fallen behind all these years while Europe, Asia, Japan, China and many other developing nations have left the US in the dust!

Where the US continues to lead is in the total amounts of greenhouse gases pumped into and steadily building up, overheating and choking earth's atmosphere. Destabilizing and breaking down all of earth's life support systems - temperature, hydrology, wind, oceanic, currents and cycles, essential to maintain the global conditions essential for life as it has evolved over the last hundreds of millions of years.

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres describes the findings as "Code Red For Humanity." The scope of this crisis is global, as coastlines and island nations disappear beneath the waves. Each year brings rising temperatures, searing heat waves and droughts, explosive wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes, catastrophic extreme weather disasters.

Accelerating Costs to Human Lives, Homes, Communities: Increasing Billions of Dollars in Damages

The first nine months of 2020 brought a record-tying 16 billion-dollar weather disasters to the nation, according to scientists with NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information. Hurricanes, tropical storms, fires: US already suffered 16 billion-dollar disasters in 2020 | Red, Green, and Blue (


Climate change is accelerating as global greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, pushing CO2 levels in earth’s atmosphere past 350 PPM and ever higher, now at 410 PPM and soaring towards 450 PPM. Driving earth’s temperatures precipitous rise:


The last decade has seen more record weather disasters than any time in recorded history – ferocious droughts, wildfires, famines, floods, typhoons, tornadoes, rising seas, dying forests, rivers, fish and animals.

The urgently necessary actions are not based on politics. The $3.5T ten-year bill, pared down from the original $6T package, lays the groundwork for the most powerful nation on earth to begin to take the lead in combatting climate change, lowering energy costs with the unlimited free energy of solar and wind, geothermal and energy efficiency. We are standing at the threshold of a renaissance in energy innovation and tranformation. Paying back with millions of jobs across the economic sector - architecture, construction, education, manufacturing, marketing, research and development, transportation, and beyond.

The vast majority of Americans support the transition to solar, wind, geothermal, and energy efficiency.

The reality is that taking climate action via the $3.5T bill is our LAST BEST CHANCE to turn climate change around is in EVERYONE'S best interest, Democrats and Republicans alike. NO ONE is going to lose votes a year from now for backing this opportunity today. To support good-paying, union jobs, strengthen America’s working communities, protect public health, and advance environmental justice. Creating jobs and tackling climate change go hand in hand – empowering the U.S. to build more resilient infrastructure, expand access to clean air and drinking water, spur American technological innovations, and create good-paying, union jobs along the way.

While the overwhelming majority of Americans, businesses, banks, institutions, farmers, virtually every sector of the economy, want to see the transition to renewables, there remain a small holdout of fossil fuel interests who persist in gaming what is left of the last remaining, worst and most corrupt elements of the system, destroying the economic, environmental, health, and future of all our children for their own miserable pitifully shrinking short term gain. Rather than lead the way out of the coal mines and and forward to diversify and reap the myriad rewards of moving towards a brighter future for all!

Biden Energy Plan Would Save More Than 300,000 Lives

A cost benefit analysis values a clean energy transition at approximately $637 billion through 2050. Estimated costs of the move toward renewable energy could cost $342 billion, according to the group. Meanwhile, a clean energy standard would save more than 317,000 lives and generate $1.13 trillion in health benefits.

Appalachia To See The Biggest Economic Benefits

From Clean Energy Jobs

When it comes to the clean energy transition, many fear that coal-dependent regions like Appalachia will lose out or be left behind. But a new findings show how Appalachia could be the region to see the biggest economic benefit from the deployment of wind and solar projects over the next decade.

The Infrastructure and Build Back Better Bills will begin to repair climate change, infrastructure, education, jobs, leading the nation and the world to leave our children a livable world. The Build Back Better Act is your best campaign promise kept in 2022. Delivering tangible, immediate results including:

- The $3,600 child tax credit for children under 6, and $3,000 from 6 to 17

- Expanding Medicare to cover dental and hearing and vision benefits

- Expanding the subsidies in the Affordable Care Act

- In states that haven't expanded Medicaid, new healthcare for millions of people

Wild Animal Populations Are Falling

Youth today must decide whether to bring children into the world where animals, forests, rivers, and oceans are dying.

A 60% decline in the populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians has taken place around the world in the last 47 years, according to the World Wildlife Fund's Living Planet Report 2018. The report documents the state of the planet—biodiversity, ecosystems, demand on natural resources—and what it means for humans and wildlife.

Human activity has had a catastrophic impact on the world’s wildlife, forests, oceans, rivers, and climate. The top threats to species link directly to climate change, habitat loss, and the over-use of wildlife such as overfishing and overhunting. Time to act to help wildlife recover is rapidly passing. We urgently need for everyone—everyone—to collectively rethink and redefine how we value, protect, and restore nature.

“Natural systems essential to our survival—forests, oceans, and rivers— are all in decline,” said Carter Roberts, president and CEO of WWF-US. “Wildlife around the world is disappearing. It reminds us we need to change course. It’s time to balance our consumption with the needs of nature, and to protect the only planet that is our home.” Overexploitation of the environment — mining and deforestation — unsustainable agriculture and climate change — are driving the death of species worldwide.

Earth's life support systems are in the final stages of spiraling out of control. Like the Titanic, only without the lifeboats and life jackets. Life on the entire planet - air, islands, continents, and oceans, is on the line. What's it worth to save the future of the planet? Weigh that against other concerns. It's in everyone's best interest to turn this earth ship now, at the last minute, before it it too late. $3.5 Trillion is a small investment in view of everything it can begin to save. Last Call For A Livable World



The sun-drenched swaths of land in southwestern Spain seem custom-made for large solar projects. Add generous government subsidies to this hospitable climate.

The solutions are clear. Inclusive and green economies, prosperity, cleaner air and better health are possible for all if we respond to this crisis with solidarity and courage. All nations, especially the G20 and other major emitters, need to join the net-zero emissions coalition and reinforce their commitments with credible, concrete and enhanced nationally determined contributions and policies before COP26 in Glasgow.

We Need Immediate Action On Energy

Without deep carbon pollution cuts now, the 1.5°C goal will soon fall out of reach. This is a death knell for coal and fossil fuels, or they will destroy our planet. There must be no new coal plants built after 2021. OECD [Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development] countries must phase out existing coal by 2030, with all others following suit by 2040. Countries should end all new fossil fuel exploration and production, and shift fossil-fuel subsidies into renewable energy. By 2030, solar and wind capacity should quadruple and renewable energy investments should triple to maintain a net-zero trajectory by mid-century.

The United States is not waiting, the costs of delay are too great, and our nation is resolved to act now.

President Biden held a virtual summit on climate change with 40 world leaders on in April on Earth Day, including all of the major economies and a number of extremely vulnerable countries, such as Antigua and Barbuda, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Marshall Islands. As the first major diplomatic conference of the Biden administration, this summit positioned climate change as a top geopolitical priority for the United States.

Climate change poses an existential threat.

Responding to this threat offers great opportunities.

Every sector of the economy can spur innovation, unleash new possibilities, drive competitiveness, and cut air, land, and water pollution. The targets builds on leadership from mayors, county executives, governors, tribal leaders, businesses, faith groups, cultural institutions, health care organizations, investors, and communities who have worked together tirelessly to ensure sustained progress in reducing pollution in the United States. Building on and benefiting from that foundation, America’s 2030 target picks up the pace of emissions reductions in the United States, while supporting existing goals to create a carbon-free power sector by 2035 and net zero emissions economy by 2050. The U.S. federal, state, local, and tribal governments have many tools available to work with civil society and the private sector to mobilize investment to meet these goals while supporting a strong economy.

Solar & Wind Are Now The Lowest Cost Energy Resources

The targets prioritizes American workers. Meeting the 2030 emissions target will create millions of good-paying, middle class, union jobs – line workers who will lay thousands of miles of transmission lines for a clean, modern, resilient grid; workers capping abandoned wells and reclaiming mines and stopping methane leaks; autoworkers building clean, efficient, electric vehicles and the charging infrastructure to support them; engineers and construction workers expanding carbon capture and green hydrogen to forge cleaner steel and cement; and farmers using cutting-edge tools to make American soil the next frontier of carbon innovation.

China Leads The World In Renewable Energy

& Has A Plan To Widen Their Lead With Decisive & Expeditious Action

China’s Leaders To Secure Supply Chains and Boost Self-Sufficiency in Agriculture, Energy, Technology, and Industry.

In a speech to the Party’s Central Economic and Financial Working Group in April 2020, President Xi called for building “independent, controllable, secure, and reliable supply chains to ensure industrial and national security with access to at least one alternative source for important products.”

President Xi said China should “use existing global dependencies on China as a counterweight to pressures to shift manufacturing out of China” and “use the pull of China’s market to attract global resources and deepen global dependence on China.”

Xi also called for developing and leveraging control of “core technologies”—in sectors such as high speed rail, telecommunications and power equipment, and new energy, localizing technology and critical production in China.
