Aligned against it at COP23 in Bonn, Germany, is every other nation in the world – all committed to meeting national emissions goals set in Paris in 2015.Completely bypassing Trump and the federal government at COP23 is the U.S. subnational delegation, led by Gov. Jerry Brown of California and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.The U.S. subnational delegation in Bonn represents non-federal actors in 15 states, 455 cities, 1,747 businesses and 325 universities. Combined they represent nearly half the U.S. economy. It remains to be seen if the delegation will be formally seated at COP23 as negotiators – a potential slap in the face to Trump’s tiny U.S. State Department delegation.The U.S. subnationals are committed to keeping America’s Paris goal of a 28 percent reduction in carbon emissions (over 2005 levels) by 2025. Supporters of America’s Pledge say they’re nearly halfway there. But it will take a far bigger push, and deeper cuts, to avoid the threat of escalating climate change, as heatwaves, extreme storms, and sea levels surge. The U.S. subnationals gather at COP23.

Photo credit: Bloomberg PhilanthropiesBONN, Germany – For 22 years, at United Nations climate summits dating back to COP1 in Berlin, Germany, the U.S. federal government has sponsored a large pricy pavilion that stood out among other international pavilions. It provided office space for U.S. negotiators meeting with dignitaries and for hosting high-level panel discussions. No more.President Trump made clear when he announced on June 1st his intention of pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement that his administration would pay for no such pavilion at COP23 now underway in Bonn. He also ceded the country’s leadership role in climate negotiations.In the days and weeks immediately following Trump’s announcement, an unprecedented climate-action initiative below the federal level formed to represent U.S. interests at COP23 (Conference of the Parties).Led largely by Gov. Jerry Brown of California and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that unprecedented coalition also paid for a pavilion of its own – the U.S. Climate Action Center. The delegation underwrote a 102-page report describing non-federal U.S. progress toward meeting the nation’s Paris Agreement goals. And it hosted a standing-room-only event on Saturday, 11 November, at the end of the first week of the COP, dubbed America’s Pledge, with the hashtag We Are Still In.California Gov. Jerry Brown had to shout above protesters from his home state, but then told them that he agreed with them: U.S. actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are currently insufficient. Photo by Justin Catanoso“The federal government doesn’t decide whether or how the U.S. takes action on climate change,” Bloomberg told a crowd of international leaders and media. “Those decisions are made by cities, states, businesses and civil society. The goal of the federal government is to support and coordinate those efforts. But if Washington won’t lead, mayors, governors and CEOs will. And there is nothing Washington can do to stop us.”It was a stunning, high-profile rebuke of a U.S. president and an unambiguous message to the world: Trump may mock climate change as “a hoax,” but most Americans believe climate change is real; that it is impacting the U.S. with sea-level rise, powerful hurricanes, record wildfires and drought; and moreover that action must be taken in line with the Paris Agreement to reduce the rate of global warming.Bloomberg, (whose foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, is underwriting much of the initiative’s cost), and others who spoke throughout the day, including Brown, former Vice President Al Gore and a delegation of five U.S. Democratic senators all emphasized the same fact: that non-federal actors in 15 states, 455 cities, 1,747 businesses and 325 universities combined represent nearly half of the U.S. economy.A standing-room-only international crowd gathered at COP23 Saturday to hear Bloomberg and others speak. Photo credit: Bloomberg PhilanthropiesIf together those forces were a nation unto themselves, they would rank third in GDP behind only the entire U.S. and China. Also, their combined efforts in reducing emissions, increasing energy efficiency and promoting environmental protections are adding up.“Over the last decade, the U.S. has reduced its emissions more than any other large country in the world, and the federal government was on the sidelines for most of that progress,” Bloomberg said. “The U.S. Congress did not pass any comprehensive legislation requiring cuts to carbon emissions. And the major climate initiative of the former administration – the Clean Power Plan — was held up in court. Despite that, the U.S. is already halfway to the goal it set in Paris of reducing carbon emissions by 28 percent by 2025 (over emissions measured in 2005).”Still, everyone recognizes that there is a long, hard road ahead. Even meeting Obama’s goal of a 28 percent reduction won’t be even close to enough to prevent dangerous climate change.Grateful and bemusedAmerica’s Pledge speakers stressed that most real climate action in the U.S. has long come from below the federal level – occurring at the state, city, corporate, academic and NGO levels. But now, given the Trump Administration, real climate-action leadership, for the first time on the global stage, needed to come from the so-called subnationals as well.Two non-U.S. speakers at Saturday’s event appeared relieved, grateful and bemused by the post-Trump reality at this climate summit: Patricia Espinosa, executive secretary of the UNFCCC (UN Framework Convention on Climate Change), and Fiji Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, president of COP23.America’s Pledge represents a commitment by U.S. states, cities, companies and colleges to achieve the carbon cuts agreed to by the U.S. in Paris in 2015, despite Trump’s withdrawal from the agreement. Photo credit: Bloomberg PhilanthropiesA year ago, at COP22 in Marrakesh, Morocco, global leaders were thrown off balance by the unexpected election of Donald Trump. They openly feared the impact the loss of U.S. leadership would have on talks to strengthen the carbon-reduction pledges made in the Paris Agreement, negotiations that are crucial if average annual global temperature rise is to remain below 2 degrees Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) by 2100.Now the two speakers embraced those Americans who claimed COP stands for Climate Outlasts Presidents: “This is a very special moment,” Espinosa told the crowd. “We welcome America’s Pledge and I will bring it to the parties (national-level negotiators) here in Bonn.”Added Bainimarama: “They may be called non-state actors in this process, but make no mistake, they are leading actors in guiding climate action in their cities and states. And we cannot do this without them.”Still to be decided is whether Bloomberg and/or Brown will get an unprecedented seat among national-level negotiators (even as the Trump administration fielded a small, staff-level State Department group at COP23). All indications suggested that they would be.Ironically, Brown’s 15-minute talk was loudly and persistently interrupted by protesters from California chanting slogans such as: “Carbon trading is a false solution for the planet.” “Nature is not commercial.” “Respect Mother Nature.” “No offsetting.”Brown, who has spent a lifetime in California politics, rolled with the hecklers and shouted above them, “I agree with you!” When the protesters quieted, he said: “This is why California has the most aggressive climate goals in the country; no matter what we do, we’re challenged to do more. And we will do more.”Laura Phillips of Walmart and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto told the crowd why they were eager participants in America’s Pledge. Photo by Justin CatanosoWhy they are inOther speakers at the event explained why they are committed to America’s Pledge.“With renewables, we found it to be really good for business,” said Laura Phillips, senior vice president of sustainability at Walmart, the U.S.’s largest employer. “We have more than 350 on-site solar installations in the U.S. alone. We’ve saved $1 billion in fuel given increased efficiencies over the past 10 years. These efficiencies are important to our suppliers and producers throughout our international supply chain.”Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto explained that his city’s renaissance – going from near-dead steel town to ranking among America’s most livable cities – has been built on environmental innovation, energy efficiencies and cleaner air and water.“If you look at what Pittsburgh has been able to do in changing its economy from the highest depression level in American history and building a new economy based on energy innovation,” Peduto said, “you can see where that can be expanded out to our friends and neighbors in coal country.”Aldon Meyer, director of strategy and policy for the Union of Concerned Scientists, attended the event. He said he was encouraged by the America’s Pledge initiative, but added:“It’s not going to be easy to get to the original [Paris Agreement] goal without the federal government. It will take more action at the subnational level. This effort is so important because they are going to try to get more people in the game. To reach the Paris goal of net zero emissions by 2050, we have to do much more. And that means getting the federal government back in the game, hopefully in 2021.”Justin Catanoso is a regular contributor to Mongabay and a professor of journalism at Wake Forest University.

It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more

Ellen Promises Sustained Decentralization

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says the over-centralization of decision making is a major cause for the slow pace of development in the country.She said the government will exert every effort to ensure that total decentralization of government’s decisions is achieved.Liberia News Agency (LINA) Margibi County Correspondent said President Sirleaf made the statement over the weekend in Kakata, Margibi County, when she dedicated the Margibi County Service Center (MCSC).She also observed that having realized the over-centralization of government’s functions, her administration has now embarked on the decentralization process by opening more county service centers.“Government’s decentralization program started when the Governance Commission Chairman, Dr. Amos C. Sawyer, initiated the process, which has today come to fruition.”Dr. Amos Sawyer and his colleagues have been the major driving force behind the decentralization program and therefore the government must recognize them “for their tireless efforts,” said the President.She said the program consists of economic, political and administrative components and other essential elements that will ensure that government is brought to the doorsteps of the people.President Sirleaf also mentioned that the program started with the County Development Fund (CDF) and the Social Development Fund (SDF), which enable each county to receive direct budgetary support to their County Development Agenda (CDA) as well as the social development drives.She said in furtherance of the exercise, a draft of the Local Government Act has been submitted to the National Legislature for enactment into law, which will make way for the decentralization of government activities.Further, President Sirleaf said due to the significant nature of the Decentralization Program, it is only implementing the de-concentration component of the program pending the enactment into law of the Local Government Act before the National Legislature.She called on Margibians to take advantage of the Service Center and utilize it for their own good, adding, “You must take ownership of the center and avoid those vices that have the tendency to spoil it.”She also seized the opportunity to commend the European Union (EU) and the Kingdom of Sweden for their total commitment and support, which is making the Decentralization Program a reality.Making remarks, the Swedish State Secretary for International Development Cooperation, Ms. Ulrika Modeer, described decentralization as a very good form of governance.Madam Modeer said that the Swedish Government has approved 158 million euros for Liberia for the next five years.She said of the amount, a significant portion will go towards supporting government’s decentralization programs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Talking the divide between U.S., Canada dairy supply systems

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Joel PenhorwoodThe trip to Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show by several Ohio dairy farmers, thanks to the efforts of Hill’s Supply, put on display not only the latest in robotic milking technology, but also the relationship between Canadian and American dairy farmers in what has been a contentious time with regard to trade.Ongoing North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) renegotiations have highlighted the differences between the two countries on milk production.“The dairy industry is challenging right now. As you look across Ohio and the nation, our nation’s dairy farmers are facing an economic downturn that’s rivaling the downturn that many of us remember in 2009,” said Frank Burkett III. Burkett, a dairy farmer and current president of the Ohio Farm Bureau, has signed a letter of intent on buying Hill’s Supply in the near future. “We look through Hill’s for ways to partner with dairymen to get through this cycle and move onto another cycle that hopefully delivers a little bit better economics and maybe a littler prosperity into dairy farmers.”Trade is an essential part of market prices in any agricultural commodity, milk included. Burkett was talking trade with many Canadian farmers.“Dairy and trade are a topic of conversation from the Farm Bureau perspective. Clearly as we look nationally, I would say there’s probably never been a time where there’s been more critical issues. Trade, the Farm Bill, immigration — there are a lot of big national issues that are impacting America’s farmers and ranchers,” Burkett said.A difference in the American and Canadian supply systems has been brought forth through NAFTA talks. Canada operates on what’s known as a supply management system where dairy farmers are given a quota of how much milk to produce. The end goal being an attempt to control the supply and protection against a surplus.Rick Shantz is an Ontario dairy farmer who said he and his fellow Canadians would like to see NAFTA completed and to allow both countries to move forward equitably.“We’re running 200 acres and 100 cows. It’s a fifth generation dairy farm. My son’s helping me now,” said Shantz. “I think a lot of it just comes down to supply and management. If we don’t have the demand there, why are we supplying it? So I think that’s the bottom line and that’s our system. That’s the box they have kept us in and we’ve been able to grow moderately. Sometimes you would like to grow a little faster, but the system has kept us at a slow growth. It has worked very well and has been sustainable. We have given up some price over the last couple of years.”“The box is a good thing. It’s here to stay. We in Ontario can compete, we can produce milk. The bottom line is we’re controlled.”The space in between for U.S. and Canada milk export and import is where the details of NAFTA are at a sticking point. Some in Canada have responded to the call for relaxation of certain protectionist dairy policies with agreement, while others have drawn the line. Time will tell what results of the matter.In the meantime, dairy farmers were busy looking at the latest in milking technology — Shantz included.“We started robotic milking eight years ago now. We love the new robot. It’s pretty exciting to see the movement of technology and the future looks very promising,” he said.The new DeLaval VMS V300 milking system was on active display, milking for the first time in North America. The system is a challenge to the Lely Astronaut which has been on several Ohio farms for a number of years. Hill’s Supply said they see the new robot as the next wave in efficiency for the robotic industry, with it boasting improved milking times and hookup efficiency.last_img read more

Rabri Devi, Tejashwi Yadav, others get bail in IRCTC hotels case

Farmers defy ban, sow GM crop in Haryana

first_imgFarmers supporting the cultivation of genetically modified (GM) varieties of crops in the country on Friday claimed to have sown seeds of the banned herbicide-tolerant Bt cotton in Haryana.Reacting to it, the State’s Agriculture Department said that it would investigate the matter and take action if found true.Bharatiya Kisan Union’s Haryana unit president Gun Parkash told The Hindu that a group of farmers have defied the government ban on the cultivation of GM crops at the Sarangpur village in Hisar district.“Today, we have sown herbicide-tolerant Bt cotton in the field of one of our fellow farmers at Sarangpur to express anguish against the government. By using GM technology, costs are reduced, insect-pest attacks lowered and yield increased, but in our country, farmers in distress cannot reap the benefits of GM crops. We want the government to allow the cultivation of GM crops,” said Mr. Parkash.“We will examine the seeds which have been sown by the farmers at Sarangpur and if it is found to be a banned GM variety, then surely necessary action will be taken,” said Suresh Gahlawat, additional director with the Haryana Agriculture Department.Maharashtra protestA few hundred farmers had similarly gathered on June 10 at Akot village in Maharashtra’s Akola district and sown herbicide-tolerant Bt cotton seeds to register their protest. Cases were later slapped on at least 12 farmers under the Indian Penal Code sections dealing with cheating and dishonesty, along with sections of the Environment Protection Act and the Seeds Act.In India so far, no GM “food crop” has been given the nod due to biosafety issues. Only Bt cotton cultivation is allowed in India as a “non-food crop”.last_img read more
