BLOG: A new twist on the carbon tax?

"...Coming on the heels of the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision that the federal carbon tax imposed by the Trudeau government is A-OK, and looking at a potential election call, Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole has proposed an alternative to the current national carbon tax. The proposed carbon tax alternative consists of a “carbon price” between $20 per tonne and $50 per tonne on fuels, paired with something called a “Personal Low Carbon Savings Account. ”On the surface, this sounds different than the usual carbon tax proposals we’ve seen over the last decade or so, but is this a new thing? Let’s take a quick break from the usual political wrangling and unpack this “new” idea..."

The Anthropocene Is Overrated

"...There is every reason to be alarmed about anthropogenic climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss, all of which have been accelerating in recent decades and do pose existential threats. Warming trends could cause the collapse of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets that would dramatically increase sea levels by dozens of feet by the end of this century. If that happens, say goodbye to New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, Mumbai, London, Istanbul, Dubai, St..."

Scientists call for climate projections as part of more robust biodiversity conservation

"...Scientists have called for the use of climate projections in conservation planning, to ensure that areas most at risk from biodiversity loss and climate impacts are protected. Protected areas are often created in areas of low population density and remote locations, rather than because of their biodiversity conservation potential. Conservation planning in tropical forests especially tends to be less rigorous and climate rarely taken into account, they said..."

US intelligence warns of dire climate consequences that biotech could ease

"...The 156-page “Global Trends 2040: A More Contested World” report, produced by the National Intelligence Council (NIC), predicts there will be more extreme storms, droughts and floods, as well as melting glaciers and ice caps. Rising sea levels will also accompany rising temperatures. The impact will disproportionately fall on the developing world and poorer regions and intersect with environmental degradation to create new vulnerabilities and exacerbate existing risks to economic prosperity, food, water, health and energy security..."
