Climate change is predicted to change where crops can grow and to spread insect-borne diseases. Weather disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, and severe droughts, which many scientists believe are worsened by climate change, will exact a continuing toll on federal, state, and local budgets.

climate change may create more favorable conditions for the spread of disease-carrying insects.5 Warming temperatures and a changing climate are particularly likely to turn some U.S. regions into new suitable habitat for Lyme-carrying ticks. 6 And the EPA just added Lyme disease as a new indicator of climate change. 7
coal plants and other emission sources are inevitable but unclear, there will be increasing hesitation to commit the large amounts of capital required for new coal projects. While the U.S. EIA and others predict strong growth in new U.S. coal capacity, those predictions are based on computer models that ignore the changing policy landscape.
Coal is the single biggest contributor to anthropogenic climate change. The burning of coal is responsible for 46% of carbon dioxide emissions worldwide and accounts for 72% of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the electricity sector.If plans to build up to 1200 new coal fired power stations around the world are realized, the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from these plants would put ...

resources to fight climate change, governments are using scarce public money to aggravate the problem. Government financing for coal—largely in the form of export support, but also as development aid and general finance—is facilitating the expansion of coal use and exacerbating climate change. The same government resources spent on

Right now we limit mercury, arsenic, lead, soot and other dangerous pollutants from power plants, but not the carbon pollution driving climate change. On June 2, 2014, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, under President Obama's Climate Action Plan, proposed a
As such, coal is at the center of enormous energy, environ-mental, and climate challenges in China and worldwide. China's transition away from coal is critical to addressing the global climate challenges as well as national and regional challenges related to air pollution, human health, and …

Jul 17, 2019· Because of coal's mammoth contribution to climate change and the complex political economy which drives its production and consumption, it is likely that coal will remain at the center of difficult questions about the relationship between climate action and development for quite some time.
Tell GE to STOP Building Coal-Fired Power Plants Abroad and Commit to Fighting Climate Change GE has said it's committed to the Paris climate agreement, yet it's planning to build over a dozen new coal-fired power plants around the world using outdated coal technology that they cannot convince Americans to buy.

In 2018, Wells Fargo collaborated with peer irms and a global management consultancy to pilot a climate scenario analysis. The purpose
to change the near-term trajectory on climate change. The power industry has a responsibility, and the technical capability to take significant steps to quickly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help address climate change at scale. The solution for the power sector is not an either/or proposition between renewables and natural gas, but rather a
temperature rise from climate change. Through the coal cap, the share of coal in energy consumption will decrease from 64% in 2015 to to below 55% by 2020, improving the environment efficiently and at low cost, protecting public health, conserving resources and helping to control climate change to no more than a 2°C increase in temperature.
The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) states that developed and developing countries have "common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities". There is a consensus that developed countries must reduce their emissions first –
