ZERO Carbon Emissions Produces Abject Poverty, Sabotages Hope

| Sourced From Texasgopvote |

Cathie Adams reporting from Cancun, MX — The industrialized world needs to realize that the radical environmentalists demand for a ZERO carbon economy by 2050 is a cruel hoax being perpetrated upon the poor. Succumbing to the unproven theory that burning fossil fuels is warming the climate robs the poor of the hope to improve their lives. Instead of feeling guilty for enjoying their energy-produced modern lifestyles, developed nations should encourage the undeveloped world with the knowledge to produce their own energy.

Keying Nigeria into $170b global carbon market

Global warming, an offshoot of the climate change phenomenon, is being gradually transformed from a threat of environmental doom to a promise of financial boom, thanks to the emerging universal trade in carbon credit, which analysts say is now worth a staggering $170 billion.

Observers are, however, worried that Nigeria is not doing enough towards positioning itself to adequately benefit from the largesse. Some believe that the nation has been schemed out of the lucrative business, which is meant to help promote reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emission among the less-industrialised countries.

Heck cool to carbon tax, warmer to energy savings

| Sourced From Bellinghamherald |

Third Congressional District candidate Denny Heck stopped at an Olympia clothing store this week to learn about energy audits. Heck hasnt made any secret he thinks global warming is real or that government should respond to the climate threats, but he apparently favors incentives and public investments rather than mandates for reducing carbon-fuel use. In fact, Heck flatly refused to say if he would support a carbon tax or cap-and-trade bill like the one that majority Democrats passed last year in the U.S. House.

Petition seeks limits on greenhouse gas, black carbon pollution from locomotives

| Sourced From Energyportal |

The Center for Biological Diversity, Friends of the Earth and the International Center for Technology Assessment today filed a petition with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to set limits for greenhouse gas and black carbon pollution from locomotives under the Clean Air Act. Locomotives are a significant source of global warming pollution. In 2008 alone, locomotives in the United States used more than 4 billion gallons of diesel fuel and released more than 50 million tons of carbon dioxide, ranking second among mobile non-road sources of greenhouse gas pollution. “Getting a handle on the global climate crisis requires limits on its most ubiquitous sources, and that includes locomotives,” said Vera Pardee, senior attorney at the Center. “The EPA is now moving ahead to limit greenhouse gas pollution from cars, trucks, power plants and cement factories, but the job can’t stop there.”
