Jul 12, 2017 @ 02:53 PM 37 2 FREE Issues of Forbes Michael Bloomberg and California Governor Jerry Brown Pledge To Fight Climate Change Deniz Cam , Forbes Staff Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg addresses the United States Conference of Mayors on June 26, 2017 in Florida. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images) On Wednesday billionaire Michael Bloomberg and California Governor Jerry Brown launched America’s Pledge, a new initiative that will report on the individual efforts taken by U.S. states, cities and businesses to drive down greenhouse emissions “consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement.” The announcement is a repudiation of President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement in June and is meant to show support for the agreement in the U.S. The Paris Climate Accord, a pact made by nearly 200 countries in 2015, requires countries to scale down their carbon emissions, along with other measures to slow down the human causes of climate change. The reduction, however, has been interpreted as an effort to undermine American businesses and workers by President Trump, whose 2016 presidential campaign promised to revive the dying coal industry. Through the America’s Pledge initiative, Bloomberg and Brown aim to push back Trump’s policies while collaborating with dozens of other groups. The Paris pact, referred to as “irreversible” during last week’s G20 meeting in Hamburg by the EU, has been ratified by 153 countries and signed by 197. Yet, it has no binding power, and others may be following Trump’s footsteps. “After that step taken by America, the position that we adopt is in the direction of not passing it in parliament,” Turkey’s President Erdogan said during a press conference shortly after the G20 summit. The remaining 18 countries, however, have reinstated their commitment. France’s new Ecology Minister Nicolas Hulot announced on July 6 that the country will stop selling gas and diesel vehicles by 2040 to meet the agreement’s carbon emission standards. Despite Trump’s refusal to step back, other American leaders are stepping forward.“The American government may have pulled out of the Paris Agreement, but American society remains committed to it – and we will redouble our efforts to achieve its goals,” said Bloomberg in a statement early on Wednesday. Right after Trump’s decision to pull out on June 1, Bloomberg announced he was pledging up to $15 million to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to compensate for any loss caused by the U.S. policy change. Bloomberg, whose real-time net worth is $50.8 billion according to Forbes, is one of the country’s top donors, having given away more than $4 billion including more than half a billion dollars in 2016. He is also the UN Secretary-General217;s Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change. Bloomberg and Brown have also commissioned the Rocky Mountain Institute and the World Resources Institute to lead an inclusive analytical effort in support of America’s Pledge, according to the statement released on Wednesday. In November, the two leaders along with others will showcase existing climate commitments of the U.S. subnational at the UN’s 23rd Conference of the Parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change in Bonn, Germany. Recommended by Forbes “Today we’re sending a clear message to the world that America’s states, cities and businesses are moving forward with our country’s commitments under the Paris Agreement — with or without Washington,” said Governor Jerry Brown, who was recently named Special Advisor for States and Regions ahead of the UN’s conference. Brown will also host the world’s climate leaders in San Francisco in September 2018 for the Global Climate Action Summit. America’s Pledge and its efforts to include the U.S. in the international push against climate change have already been noticed. “The effort to aggregate and quantify the actions of subnational authorities and non-Party stakeholders in the United States via ‘America’;s Pledge’ is welcome,” United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said on Wednesday.

Climate change poses one of the biggest long-term risks to the global economy and companies, including big oil and gas firms such as Shell, have to be open about how the risks will affect them, its chief executive said on Tuesday. Shell, one of the biggest oil and gas producing firms in the world, is under growing pressure from some shareholders to improve its carbon footprint and sustainability credentials. Shell said it assesses climate change risks internally but it has so far not disclosed in detail what financial impact climate-related risks could have. A think-tank estimated last month that energy companies could be wasting more than $2 trillion (£1.5 trillion) by 2025 on projects that will not be needed if governments' carbon-reduction targets are met. "It is right that it should be transparent which companies are truly on firm foundations over the long-term," Shell CEO Ben van Beurden wrote in a post on social media platform LinkedIn. Shell's press office confirmed its veracity. Last week, Shell signed up to a G20 task-force working on a framework to improve the ability to assess and price climate-related risks. Van Beurden said Shell will help the task-force determine a way to disclose commercially sensitive data. (Reporting by Karolin Schaps, editing by David Evans)

BP (LSE:BP.) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Tuesday 20 June 2017 Click Here for more BP Charts. By Timothy Puko Some of the world's largest oil companies and the country's biggest auto maker are joining a group pushing the U.S. government to tax carbon in an effort to slow climate change. General Motors Co., Exxon Mobil Corp. and BP PLC are among almost a dozen companies joining the Climate Leadership Council, a new organization that advocates replacing many environmental regulations with a simplified tax on businesses that release carbon into the atmosphere. The plan proposes directly paying out this money to all citizens to defray the likely costs from rising energy prices. A group of influential Republicans, including former secretaries of State George Shultz and James Baker, have spearheaded the group's efforts, which are at odds with many in their own party. Since winning control of the White House and Congress last year, Republican lawmakers have worked to roll back Democratic policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, culminating with President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord. Several business leaders criticized that decision, and some of the companies joining the group, which officially launched in February, have advocated more aggressive policies to address rising temperatures and air pollution. Exxon, GM and the other corporations are joining alongside astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, hedge-fund magnate Ray Dalio, Harvard economist and former Obama economic adviser Larry Summers and others. Exxon Chief Executive Darren Woods used his first blog post in that role this February to say a "revenue-neutral carbon tax" would be a "sensible approach" to cutting carbon emissions. It can promote energy efficiency and incentivize low-carbon energy sources without "further burdening the economy," he wrote. "We have been encouraged by the proposal put forth by the Climate Leadership Council as it aligns closely with our longstanding principles, " Mr. Woods said in a statement Monday. "We acknowledged long ago that climate change is real and that lowering emissions is both a social imperative and an economic opportunity," GM said in a statement. "Addressing climate change in an effective and sustainable manner requires a holistic approach involving all sectors of the economy." By joining now, the companies will be able to help shape the fine details of the proposal that eventually comes from the council, said Ted Halstead, the group's chief executive. A tax is also simple enough that, if passed, it would mean the country could eliminate a collection of regulations that have guided climate policy in the last several years, including the Obama administration's power plant rules, which the Trump administration has moved to reverse. "My guess is that the big appeal is getting rid of all the regulatory morass," said Benjamin Salisbury, policy analyst at FBR & Co. But "with Republican domination in Washington, you are talking about the very early stages of a massive uphill climb."
