A report from America’s 3rd-largest bank asks why we’re not transitioning to a low-carbon economy

"This conclusion soundly refutes the main argument against climate action – that it’s too expensive, with some contrarians even having gone so far as to claim that cutting carbon pollution will create an economic catastrophe. To the contrary, the Citi report finds that these investments will save money, before even accounting for the tremendous savings from avoiding climate damage costs."

"New research suggests that the probability of flooding in cities and megacities built on river deltas is on the increase and over time, the Mississippi and the Rhine may become up to eight times more at hazard from rising tides, storm surges or catastrophic downstream floods.

"The study, published in the journal Science, calculates the challenges ahead for 48 major coastal deltas in the Americas, Europe and Asia, right now home to populations of more than 340 million people."

Naomi Klein: "If one of the oldest and most tradition-bound institutions in the world can change its teachings and practices as radically, and as rapidly, as Pope Francis is attempting, then surely all kinds of newer and more elastic institutions can change as well.
"And if that happens—if transformation is as contagious as it seems to be here—well, we might just stand a chance of tackling climate change." #climatechange #encyclical #popefrancis

"The crushing of political choice is not a side-effect of this utopian belief system but a necessary component. Neoliberalism is inherently incompatible with democracy, as people will always rebel against the austerity and fiscal tyranny it prescribes. Something has to give, and it must be the people. This is the true road to serfdom: disinventing democracy on behalf of the elite." #neoliberalism #Greece #austerity

Great Song: "The Humongous Harperman Hootenanny – A cross-Canada event taking place on Thursday, September 17th will include a “Harperman” sing-along on Parliament Hill at 2:00 pm Eastern.

"There will be public “Harperman” sing-alongs in every province on that day, and there will be opportunities for people to participate online from anywhere in Canada."

“I expect those who suffer from cognitive dissonance over whether global warming is real will soon be greeted by a brutal Darwinian result in the markets.” Huge losses. And you can almost hear him chuckling as he adds this observation: ”I don’t make many forecasts but here is one ... It is only a matter of time before the deniers exist only in think tanks funded by the fossil-energy industry and oddball conspiracy groups.”
