FEMA to State: No Climate Planning, No Money… and More



Speaking Out:

OO China’s Top Meteorologist:
‘Serious Threat’ Of Climate Change Could Have ‘Huge Impacts’

OO Ignored By Government,
Canadian Academics Offer Nation Their Own Climate Policy

Good Ideas:

Credit University of Texas

OO Oil’s Climate Impacts Can Be Minimized while alternative sources are developed, indicates a new index, which shows that oil’s climate impacts vary widely.

OO FEMA To States: No Climate Planning, No Money – governors seeking billions of dollars in US preparedness funds will have to sign off on plans to mitigate effects of climate change.



Fossil Fuel Follies

OO The Biggest Source Of U.S. Carbon Emissions Is
Coal Extracted From Public Lands
– the US government does not currently measure the total greenhouse gas emissions from public lands that it manages.

Clueless Leadership:

OO GOP Senate Leader McConnell Urges States to
Help Thwart Obama’s ‘War on Coal’
– someone fill his xmas stocking with coal.

OO GOP McConnell Aims To Stop National And Global Climate Action – his efforts can’t save the coal industry, but sadly he can make it much harder for Americans to save ourselves from Dust-Bowlification and loss of our coastal cities.


OO Republicans Trying to Block New Environmental Rules For Fracking – already, 27 GOP Senators have introduced a bill to block them, and two oil industry groups have filed a lawsuit to nullify them.

OO GOP Senate Hearing On Oil Exports Didn’t Mention The Environment Once
“It feels ridiculous to have a discussion about lifting the ban on oil exports and not talk about climate change.”


Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2016!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
