AXA SA (CS.FR) said Tuesday that it would accelerate its commitment to fight climate change by increasing its green investments to 12 billion euros ($14.1 billion). The insurer, which had committed in 2015 to reach EUR3 billion in green investments by 2020, said that it's quadrupling the original target, given that it has already reached it. "A +4°C world is not insurable. As a global insurer and investor, we know that we have a key role to play," said Chief Executive Thomas Buberl, adding that in the spirit of the Paris Agreement, the company wants to accelerate its commitment and confirm its leadership in the fight against global warming. AXA said that it would also divest more than EUR3 billion from carbon-intensive energy producers. In 2015, the company had decided to divest EUR500 million from the coal industry, a figure that it has decided to increase fivefold to EUR2.4 billion. In addition, it will divest EUR700 million from the main oil sands producers and associated pipelines, and said that it will stop further investments in these businesses. It would be inconsistent to commercially support industries that the group is divesting from, the company said, adding that it will stop insuring any new coal construction projects. Similarly, it will stop insuring the main oil sands and the associated pipeline businesses. AXA and the International Finance Corporation are launching an innovative $500 million partnership to support climate-related infrastructure projects in emerging countries with private sector funding, it said. No investments in coal and oil sands related projects will be made. "The fight against climate change requires engagement in a global collective action. This can be done through collaborations and partnerships, and also by leading by example," Mr. Buberl added.

Orange: a rewarded partnership. share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook share via email 0 0 13/11/2017 | 12:53 Committed to understanding climate change and its impact on biodiversity for more than 20 years, the CREA Mont-Blanc (Altitude Ecosystem Research Center) was awarded by the United Nations at COP 23 in the United States. is part of its technological and human partnership with Orange, said the incumbent via a statement released this Monday in the morning. Winners of the 2017 Momentum For Change Award, the two partners will be in Bonn (Germany), the host city of COP 23, to receive the award and present the CLIMB initiative (Climate Change Impacts on Mountain Biodiversity), a unique approach to climate change. mountain climate change monitoring that combines technology and dialogue between science and society. CLIMB (Climate Change Impacts on Mountain Biodiversity) aims to collect data on climate, species and landscapes. These data are essential for the scientific analysis of current environmental trends, which are then brought to the attention of citizens and decision-makers. From the automated collection of data to its restitution for the territory and the public, CLIMB required a robust and innovative technological architecture that Orange has provided. No less than 60 automatic temperature measuring stations have been installed across the Alpine arc. This unique network allows researchers to monitor local climate change (temperature and snow) with great accuracy and to compare these climate data with wildlife observation data.

'What's your other option, war?': Macron blasts Trump's policy towards Iran AFP news.france@thelocal.com @thelocalfrance 10 November 2017 08:44 CET+01:00 macron trump france us Share this article 'What's your other option, war?': Macron blasts Trump's policy towards Iran Photo: AFP French president Emmanuel Macron wants Donald Trump to back the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement or come up with another option. If not then Iran will end up with nuclear weapons, Macron says. US pressure to renegotiate the Iran nuclear deal could push Tehran into deciding to build its own nuclear weapons, French President Emmanuel Macron warned in an interview published Thursday. "If you want to stop any relation with Iran regarding nuclear activity, you will create a new North Korea," Macron told Time magazine. "If you stop the 2015 agreement, what's your other option? To launch war? To attack Iran? I think it would be crazy in the region," he said. Macron called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action agreed in July 2015 between Iran and six powers, including France and the United States, "the best possible deal regarding Iran." But US President Donald Trump has labelled the agreement too lenient on Iran and accuses the country of violating it, calling for a renegotiation. If the US abrogates the JPCOA, Macron said, it will backfire. "Because it's exactly what we experienced with North Korea. And suddenly you will wake up in ten to twelve years time without any control, but (Iran) having the nuclear weapon." Macron said he wants Washington to join an effort to force Iran to stop supplying ballistic missiles to its allies in the region, pointing to the missile launched at Saudi Arabia last week by Yemen's Houthi rebels. "So we should negotiate a new series of criteria and a new treaty with Iran to stop their ballistic activities in the region." Macron also explained why Trump was not invited to the Paris climate summit in December. "I made it very clear from the very beginning that there is no renegotiation of the Paris Agreement," the 2015 global pact to fight climate change agreed by president Barack Obama but rejected by Trump. Bientôt les sports d'hiver Avec le meilleur de la technologie Goodyear En savoir plus Proposé par Goodyear [Suspendre le ciblage publicitaire Adyoulike] "Because he cannot renegotiate with more than one hundred eighty or 190 countries," Macron said. "We are definitely making the reforms too slowly," Macron noted. "It's very important to deliver the message and to show the strong evidence of the fact that Paris Agreement is still active." If Trump offers a new climate initiative that would go further than the existing one, Macron said, "I would be very happy." "But I just say what is unacceptable is to deliver speeches without any deeds and any reality."

Adam Smith Institute The latest climate change prediction - sigh November 4, 2017 The latest climate change prediction - sigh Tim Worstall The UN has told us, once again, that we're all going to end up boiling Flipper in the remains of the last ice floe. When UN climate negotiators meet for summit talks this month, there will be a new figure on the table: 3C. Until now, global efforts such as the Paris climate agreement have tried to limit global warming to 2C above pre-industrial levels. However, with latest projections pointing to an increase of 3.2C by 2100, these goals seem to be slipping out of reach. As you know about us around here, we take no real view of the underlying science here - not because we agree or don't (either with it or among ourselves) but because we don't think that's the useful thing to be arguing about. A sufficient head of steam has been built up that they're going to do something so let's discuss instead what to do. All of which means actually understanding what it is that people are telling us when they talk about last ice floes and Flipper etc. The truth here being that the UN has just said something of no relevance whatsoever to reality. Their report is here. What they are not saying is that emissions are going to rise sufficiently to create this temperature rise. They are not measuring technological change - the obvious thing which is going to determine what does happen - nor the turnover of capital assets which emit, whether we're on RCP 8.5 (we're not) or RCP 2.6 (probably not as yet at least) etc. What they are saying is that governments haven't promised, through their Nationally Determined Contributions, to cut emissions sufficiently to avoid that 3C. And? It isn't going to be governments making pledges in Paris which change the future anyway, is it? It is going to be technological advance and the associated actions of the aggregated 7 billion of us which will. And one lesson to take from that great economic experiment we call the 20th century is that markets and incentives work rather better at determining what does happen than the promises, pledges and predictions of governments when trying to manage an economy. Or even reality. As Bjorn Lomborg said near two decades ago - and boy doesn't he still get stick for having been right - in a world where solar power drops in cost by 20% per annum and is still doing so what a politician promises to do to the rest of us is really very small beer indeed.

World Water Week Closes: Values of Water Must Be Better Understood News provided by Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) Sep 01, 2017, 11:10 ET Share this article STOCKHOLM, September 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Understanding and recognizing the many different values attached to water is a key to more efficient use - a must as more people have to share the world's limited freshwater. World Water Week closed on Friday, having welcomed over 3,200 participants from 133 countries. Water is the lifeline of our civilization. Without it, there is no hope of sustaining households, industries, food and energy production, or such key functions as hospitals. A growing global population is creating a higher demand for freshwater. Climate-driven changes in weather patterns, leading to extended droughts and devastating floods, further exacerbate pressure on our common water resources. Access to safe water is necessary in order to implement the global development agenda. "With increasing scarcity, we must recognize the many values attached to water, be it economic, social, environmental, cultural or religious. I believe that by re-valuing water, we will develop a deeper understanding and respect for this precious resource, and thus be better prepared for more efficient use," said SIWI's Executive Director Torgny Holmgren Throughout World Water Week, links were made between the different values of water, including its monetary value. "I believe we will see more diverse pricing structures in the future, allowing for more economical and efficient use," said Holmgren. Nomvula Mokonyane, Minister of Water and Sanitation in South Africa, stressed that we need to embrace new technologies. "We cannot afford to continue to do what we did yesterday and expect to see a different result tomorrow. We must be bold!" she said. Mark Watts from C40, that gathers city mayors, spoke about risks that big cities face: "Water pattern disruption is often the first sign of serious climate impacts and 70 per cent of our member cities are already seeing the significant and negative impacts of climate change. 64 per cent of our member cities face significant risk from surface and flash floods," he said. During World Water Week, Stockholm Junior Water Prize was awarded to Ryan Thorpe and Rachel Chang, USA, by H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. Stockholm Water Prize was presented to Professor Stephen McCaffrey, USA, by H.M. Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden, and patron of the prize.

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."
