In late 2013, Exxon Mobil faced increasing pressure from investors to disclose more about the risks the company faced as governments began limiting greenhouse gas emissions. Of the many costs climate change will impose, oil companies face a particularly acute one: the demand for their product will have to shrink.

For years, Exxon had been using something called a proxy cost of carbon to estimate what stricter climate policies might mean for its bottom line. But as pressure from shareholders grew, a problem came sharply into focus: An internal presentation warned top executives that the way the company had been applying this proxy cost was potentially misleading. That’s because Exxon didn’t have one projected cost of carbon. It had two.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — YELLOW RUMPED WARBLER — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

BIRD OF THE WEEK

YELLOW RUMPED WARBLER

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Setophaga coronata
POPULATION: 150 million
TREND: Increasing
HABITAT: Breeds in coniferous and mixed forests; winters in a variety of open and second-growth habitats.

The Yellow-rumped Warbler is one of the most widespread and well-known warblers in North America. Birders affectionately refer to this species as “butter-butt,” since its bright yellow rump is an eye-catching and diagnostic field mark throughout the year. Adults also have a yellow crown patch, most obvious in adult males. This bird’s species name, coronata, means crowned.

North America is home to two migratory Yellow-rumped Warbler groups that are sometimes considered separate species: the “Myrtle” Warbler of eastern and far-northwestern North America and the “Audubon’s” Warbler of the West. The two groups hybridize where their ranges meet in southwestern Canada, and were combined into a single species in 1973, named the Yellow-rumped Warbler.

UNHCR increases aid in north-east Syria:

Displaced Syrians, who fled their homes in the border town of Ras al-Ain, receive humanitarian aid on October 12, 2019, in the town of Tal Tamr in the countryside of Syria’s northeastern Hasakeh province.

Among the immediate protection needs which have been identified are the lack of civil documentation, as people left their homes without papers and other belongings. Families have also been separated.

Some people are in need of psychological first aid and psychosocial support. UNHCR mobilized protection teams to identify critical protection needs of the most vulnerable, including people with specific needs, elderly people and those with disabilities and serious medical conditions.

Cause for Hope: We’re On Track to Move Beyond Coal:

If you’re alarmed or distressed by the major new climate findings released this week, I have good news to restore your hope and pull you back from the edge of despair. But first, in case you missed the headlines, the major scientific analysis released this weekend by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a staggering wake-up call to action on climate.

coal retirement rate

When we do that, we will not only maintain America’s leadership in the world but also continue the shift in the marketplace toward clean, renewable energy, which is already accessible and cheaper than coal in places all over the country and the globe. Getting off of coal and fossil fuels doesn’t just help curb the climate crisis, it saves lives and saves money by cutting toxic pollution from coal plants that makes people sick and drives up medical costs.
