Texas Crisis Exposes a Nation’s Vulnerability to Climate Change
The week’s continent-spanning winter storms triggered blackouts in Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and several other states. One-third of oil production in the nation was halted. Drinking-water systems in Ohio were knocked offline. Road networks nationwide were paralyzed and vaccination efforts in 20 states were disrupted.

The crisis carries a profound warning. As climate change brings more frequent and intense storms, floods, heat waves, wildfires and other extreme events, it is placing growing stress on the foundations of the country’s economy: Its network of roads and railways, drinking-water systems, power plants, electrical grids, industrial waste sites and even homes. Failures in just one sector can set off a domino effect of breakdowns in hard-to-predict ways.

Much of this infrastructure was built decades ago, under the expectation that the environment around it would remain stable, or at least fluctuate within predictable bounds. Now climate change is upending that assumption.

Many have been granted their wish.

It's amazing how easy it is to convince people that everything is bad for them because somebody else wants it.  The one thing we shouldn't do is send help when their independent values fail them.
 
Those rugged individuals would never ask for help. I bet they don't do handouts either.

Texas Storms, California Heat Waves and ‘Vulnerable’ Utilities
Power failures have cast a spotlight on whether energy companies and regulators are doing enough to prepare for climate change and natural disasters.
Blackouts in Texas and California have revealed that power plants can be strained and knocked offline by the kind of extreme cold and hot weather that climate scientists have said will become more common as greenhouse gases build up in the atmosphere.

The problems in Texas and California highlight the challenge the Biden administration will face in modernizing the electricity system to run entirely on wind turbines, solar panels, batteries and other zero-emission technologies by 2035 — a goal that President Biden set during the 2020 campaign.

The federal government and energy businesses may have to spend trillions of dollars to harden electricity grids against the threat posed by climate change and to move away from the fossil fuels responsible for the warming of the planet in the first place. These are not new ideas. Scholars have long warned that American electricity grids, which are run regionally, will come under increasing strain and needed major upgrades.
 
all is well and this has nothing to do with climate change......I made the mistake of commenting on California weather only to be confronted with statistics of CA history and how NOT usual it was at the time.

It's a start, but in the meantime companies like amazon continue to grow their carbon footprint, albeit at a lower pace than their sales growth, while also "offsetting" the footprint with other investments. To Amazon's credit, I think the increase in transparency is key...perhaps a push to add it as another financial disclosure, like earnings per share.  

Amazon and Global Optimism announced this morning that "20 new signatories around the world have joined The Climate Pledge: ACCIONA, Colis Prive, Cranswick plc, Daabon, FREE NOW, Generation Investment Management, Green Britain Group, Hotelbeds, IBM, Iceland Foods, Interface, Johnson Controls, MiiR, Ørsted, Prosegur Cash, Prosegur Compañia de Seguridad, Slalom, S4Capital, UPM, and Vanderlande."

The announcement says that "with the addition of the new signatories, 53 companies across 18 industries and 12 countries have committed to working toward net-zero carbon in their worldwide businesses - which in aggregate has the potential to significantly reduce corporate carbon emissions. Each organization is at a different stage in its journey to net-zero carbon emissions, but all 53 signatories are committed to The Climate Pledge’s ambitious goal of meeting the Paris Agreement 10 years early."

{#Clap} another good one. Though the title is misleading. This guy is not in favour of fossil fuels (as the title suggests) but of nuclear instead. (really belongs here). I agree with him.

Global ice loss accelerating at record rate, study finds
Rate of loss now in line with worst-case scenarios of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
About 28tn tonnes of ice was lost between 1994 and 2017, which the authors of the paper calculate would be enough to put an ice sheet 100 metres thick across the UK. About two thirds of the ice loss was caused by the warming of the atmosphere, with about a third caused by the warming of the seas.

Over the period studied, the rate of ice loss accelerated by 57%, the paper found, from 0.8tn tonnes a year in the 1990s to 1.2tn tonnes a year by 2017. About half of all the ice lost was from land, which contributes directly to global sea level rises. The ice loss over the study period, from 1994 to 2017, is estimated to have raised sea levels by 35 millimetres.

I would agree, on this subject Peterson comes off half cocked.
But the point about how to respond to global warming, given the reliability of models in predicting out future impacts is poor, is valid.
also, actually getting countries, business, people to shift towards a solution is complex - especially given the political nonsense - and unlikely to occur, at least to rectify the more catastrophic predictions.
Not that this should leave us to throw up our hands, and ask to pass the coal.
A cleaner, less polluted world is a better world. A world that offers cheap, clean, efficient energy is a better world, especially for the global poor.
