The agency estimates that the regulations will cut methane emissions by 41 million tons between 2023 and 2035 — the equivalent of shutting down 234 coal plants for one year. bit.ly/3k6VPSL
In 2019, @greenpeaceusa activists hung off a bridge and blocked the Houston Ship Channel. They were charged under Texas' "critical infrastructure" law. The DA's office now looks set to dismiss the charges after activists entered into an agreement. grist.org/article/why-gr…

BREAKING: @SouthCoastAQMD just approved Refinery Rule 1109.1 -- regulation of the heater and boiler systems of 16 SoCal refineries. It'll cut 8 tons of NOx pollution daily. The board estimates the rule’s public health benefits are worth $3.49 billion over the next 15 years.

The Supreme Court’s review of the EPA’s climate authority, explained. bit.ly/3mJUT8O
As countries vow to end coal use at COP26, increased coal production is currently causing emissions to rebound almost to 2019 levels. Anddd we're at risk of 2022 setting a new high-emissions record. My latest @grist grist.org/climate/coal-s…

More than 20,000 people died in traffic crashes in the first 6 months of 2021— the most since 2006. There’s a fundamental problem that exists, because funds have focused on making sure driving is the easiest way for people to get around - @Maddz4planning grist.org/transportation…

If the adaptation gap is not closed, countries will suffer increasing amounts of loss and damage. Small island states and least developed countries are pushing for a separate stream of funding for L&D in addition to mitigation and adaptation. grist.org/cop26/report-p…
Retweeted by grist
Only about 25% of $$ for developing countries goes to adaptation projects like water infrastructure — the rest goes to projects that cut emissions. With Biden's new pledge, the U.S. is giving 26%. But vulnerable countries want a 50/50 split. grist.org/cop26/report-p…

I wrote about federal transportation spending, how it has almost exclusively incentivized private transportation for 40 years, and why that’s so deadly. 20,000 traffic deaths and counting this year.

Today is a sad day because @SavorTooth and I sent out the last edition of our wildfires newsletter, The Burning Issue. It ran for 12 weeks. But it's also a happy day because I got to include a Q&A with my childhood friend, a seasonal hotshot. grist.org/burning-issue/…
