June 27th, 2012 by


Below is a global warming news roundup I posted on sister site CleanTechnica… thought it was a tad relevant to Planetsave, so reposting in full.

Though, first, a few stories posted since the roundup are as follows:

  2. Brookings Gets It, Then Loses It, on Clean Energy

    Hi Zach,
    I know it’s a little late to comment but what are your thoughts concerning the CEO of Exxon-Mobile, Rex Tillerson, and his recent comments on Global Warming? Admitting that the planet will warm with increase emissions and have a climate impact should have been a breakout story. No one seems to call him to the carpet for his “solutions” of “adapting” with “engineered technology”. Nor was he challenged directly by his statement that “models” can not be relied upon. Seems a golden opportunity to bring the issue to the public has been wasted.
    Oh, I live now in North Carolina and the legislators are so “bought” that natural gas fracking” has sneaked its way here. Governor Purdue vetoed the bill and because of a mistake in a vote it was overturned! There were 10,000 calls to the Governor on this issue and I was part of a group of 200 plus concerned citizens that went to the capital to lobby against the bill. Seems the “conservatives” had it all locked up beforehand.
    Anyway, to me at least, these oitched battles (Keystone pipeline) will not turn the tide to rapidly convert our economy to alternative energy and we are falling in the trap of the delay/ debate circle. Thanks for all the coverage on this issue.
