So what? You already believe we are mitigating climate change.

(Reuters)- New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), the biggest transportation network in North America, is selling a $125 million "catastrophe" bond designed to cover the costs of damage from a future storm or hurricane, investors said on Monday.

The MTA, which suffered a $5 billion hit from Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, will be able to offload the risk of incurring similar storm-related losses to investors, who will receive a yield in return for agreeing to pick up future repair bills.

New York is preparing for an increase in severe weather after Sandy caused more than $30 billion of damage in the state. The city has just announced a $20 billion infrastructure plan to boost its storm defenses, and the state now includes a warning about severe weather threats in its bond prospectuses.

(Reuters)- The World Bank's board on Tuesday agreed to a new energy strategy that will limit financing of coal-fired power plants to "rare circumstances," as the Washington-based global development powerhouse seeks to address the impact of climate change.

The Bank will amend its lending policies for new coal-fired power projects, restricting financial support to countries that have "no feasible alternatives" to coal, as it seeks to balance environmental efforts with the energy needs of poor countries.

The impact of this energy strategy may not be seen immediately, since bilateral donors and the private sector will still continue to finance coal. Some analysts hope the new strategy could send a signal that coal is a risky investment and prompt countries to turn to alternative energy sources.

Co2 mitigation hasn't been shown to change anything relating to climate.
Show me that I'm lying. You should have a study handy to prove I'm lying.

Nancy Willing 's Delaware Way blog had a very good entry on the proceedings of the Governor Jack Markell -appointed Coastal Zone Industrial Board on The Sierra Club appeal of a air quality permit granted to PBF Energy(new owner of Delaware City Refinery) "Delaware Sierra Club

The &#8234;#&#8206;Coastal Zone&#8236; industrial board has gone "off the record" again to deliberate over whether we have standing. &#8234;#&#8206;cza &#8236;.

@GovernorMarkell-appointed Coastal Zone Industrial Board has voted to approve the refinery's motion to dismiss our appeal based on standing." http://delawareway.blogspot.com/2013/07/coast...

I believe that 'what's next?' must be to convince the Jack Markell Administration and the controlling PBF Energy Industry to show us that they have a more committed 'standing' in our community-- respect the laws in the Coastal Zone Management Act and give us more energy alternatives that help reduce our petroleum dependency. President Barack Obama has told us 'what's next' and his "Invest.Divest" is a very interesting political strategy. President Obama - We Got His Back,“Convince those in power to reduce our carbon pollution. Push your own communities to adopt smarter practices. Invest. Divest. Remind folks there’s no contradiction between a sound environment and strong economic growth.”-President Barack Obama. Let's take the Climate fight to the Universities and College Campuses which are the main labor resource for the controlling power and energy industry. " With small, orange squares representing its cause, Fossil Free UD, a campus campaign that aims to encourage university administration to divest from fossil fuel companies, has submitted a proposal to Student Government Association that will be voted on next week.

The proposal, which will be brought in front of SGA Senate next Tuesday, has the mission of freezing investments in fossil fuel companies from the university’s endowment by 2018. Senior Jock Gilchrist*, founder of Fossil Free UD, said a university administrator confirmed over email that though the university does not disclose individual company investments, it does invest in “fossil fuel related companies.”

The university’s endowment topped $1.13 billion in 2012, making it the 67th highest endowment among universities, according to the National Association of College and University Business Officials.

By divesting, the university can make a statement about fossil fuel companies that “exploit the Earth of its natural resources,” Gilchrist said." http://www.udreview.com/news/student-group-se...

Exactly. To all those who doubt global warming, think about this, in December the average temp here was in the 40's, now in July it's been in the 80's. Please stop global warming God.

Simple Minds rocked. But then again, I'm just a simple man. One car, one house, and no yacht. I wonder if those who champion global warming can say that? Can you Mr. Kennedy, Ted Turner, and last but not least, well actually he did finish second in the 2000 election, Mr Al Gore. You lost to GW, YOU SUCK!
