I agree, well said. It is a relief, and somewhat encouraging to hear the cheif of the world's second largest fossil fuel company at least acknowledging that, "houston we have a problem" for Christ's sake. This is a start!

"Falling coal output in China has already had a big impact on global emissions with early data from the IEA suggesting that global emissions of carbon dioxide from the energy sector stalled in 2014, marking the first time in 40 years in which there was a halt or reduction in emissions of the greenhouse gas that was not tied to an economic downturn."

BARCELONA, May 21 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The U.N.'s Green Climate Fund can start deciding where to deploy its cash following the signing of an agreement with the Japanese government that means it will have enough money to begin operating. The new fund for international climate finance needed to convert half of the $9.35 billion pledges into firm contribution agreements to become effective. It had set a deadline for the end of April.

If climate change is a threat to national security why are climate activists under FBI surveillance? 
Both the president and the Pentagon have proclaimed that global warming is a threat to U.S. national security. But there’s no sign that the FBI is wiretapping fossil fuel company CEOs.

A small victory, but a victory nonetheless.

Anytime that these projects are cancelled or delayed is a victory and should be celebrated.

"It says that it is at least 95 percent probable that man-made greenhouse gas emissions, rather than natural swings in the climate, are the main cause of warming temperatures."

The National Association of Clean Air Agencies releases a much-anticipated 'menu' of 25 core compliance options for states in meeting U.S. EPA's #CleanPowerPlan  -- http://ht.ly/NfyB4
About NACAA's Menu of Options. In June 2014, EPA issued a proposed rule setting carbon dioxide (CO2) emission standards for existing fossil fuel-fired power plants. The proposal, also called the Clean Power Plan (CPP), was promulgated under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act.

Global warming is not just the melting of ice at the poles. When ice melts at the poles, sea level will go up putting many of the land under water. There will be a polar shift or change in earth axis of rotation because of water transfer from poles to equator. Polar change means disaster.

Big Oil is urging Alberta's new government to toughen up the province's environmental policies. To hear an oil industry chieftain advocate for a carbon tax, as Suncor's Steve Williams did in front of a downtown Calgary crowd on Friday, may feel incongruous, but consider who those comments were directed to — the NDP — and the situation takes on a tinge of the surreal. It's the latest sign of how much the political landscape has shifted in Alberta, as well as the global discussion about climate change.

Here is some more on India's crackdown on "foreign funded" environmental groups, with a focus on climate change activism.

http://insideclimatenews.org/news/14052015/whats-behind-indias-crackdown-social-justice-climate-activists
India has recently ramped up attacks on environmental and development organizations that work on climate, clean energy and sustainability issues. The world’s largest democracy has frozen bank accounts, restricted international donations, and in some cases prevented the organizations’ staffers from traveling abroad.
