Trump Advisers To Meet Tuesday To Discuss Paris Climate Agreement

The accord, agreed upon by nearly 200 countries in Paris in 2015, aims to limit planetary warming in part by slashing carbon dioxide and other emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. As part of the deal, the United States committed to reducing its emissions by between 26 and 28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025. Trump in the past has said the United States should “cancel” the deal but he has been mostly quiet on the issue since he was elected. A White House official said Trump’s aides would “discuss the options, with the goal of providing a recommendation to the president about the path forward.” White House officials, led by the National Economic Council, have recently been asking publicly-traded energy companies for advice on whether to stay in the agreement. Major publicly traded coal companies such as Cloud Peak Energy and Peabody Energy confirmed to Reuters that they have told White House advisers it is in their interests for the United States to remain in the Paris agreement to ensure there was a global role for high-efficiency coal plants. “By remaining in the Paris Agreement, albeit with a much different pledge on emissions, you can help shape a more rational international approach to climate policy,” Cloud Peak CEO Colin Marshall wrote in the letter dated April 6. The advisers expected to attend Tuesday’s meeting included Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Scott Pruitt, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Perry, a former Texas governor, at his confirmation hearings in January softened a previous position that the science behind climate change was “phony.” Last week, Pruitt, a former Oklahoma Attorney General, said the United States should “exit” the agreement because it was a “bad deal” for the country. The meeting comes ahead of a summit of the Group of Seven wealthy nations in late May, which White House spokesman Sean Spicer said was the deadline for the decision. Politico on Friday first reported a possible meeting of Trump advisers. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Bureau Of Land Management Puts Bankrupt Peabody Coal Banner On Website Home Page

Jettisoning the image of children gazing across scenic landscapes on public land, the Bureau of Land Management has replaced its website homepage banner with an old Peabody coal website image from the bankruptcy era of the coal titan, which has just emerged from its controversial bankruptcy plan. Talk about bad timing: The BLM is now the home of the “rock solid” company that went bankrupt—and a government promoter of Big Coal’s role in a growing health and humanitarian crisis and environmental ruin. Memo to BLM: Even Peabody Energy has ditched the photo, in its attempt to do a makeover of the company image. Considering the BLM mission to “sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations,” perhaps the federal agency should hold a contest for new homepage banner images more befitting of its new policy to re-open coal mining on public lands. Here are few examples, showcasing devastating strip mines, toxic discharges in streams and waterways, coal train accidents, and CO2 pollution from antiquated coal-fired plants. Other ideas could include black lung disease for coal miners, air pollution, the loss of farm and ranch lands, and the loss of pension and health plans for miners. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Trump Declares End To 'War On Coal,' But Utilities Aren't Listening

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); When President Donald Trump signed an executive order last week to sweep away Obama-era climate change regulations, he said it would end America’s “war on coal”, usher in a new era of energy production and put miners back to work. But the biggest consumers of U.S. coal - power generating companies - remain unconvinced. Reuters surveyed 32 utilities with operations in the 26 states that sued former President Barack Obama’s administration to block its Clean Power Plan, the main target of Trump’s executive order. The bulk of them have no plans to alter their multi-billion dollar, years-long shift away from coal, suggesting demand for the fuel will keep falling despite Trump’s efforts. The utilities gave many reasons, mainly economic: Natural gas - coal’s top competitor - is cheap and abundant; solar and wind power costs are falling; state environmental laws remain in place; and Trump’s regulatory rollback may not survive legal challenges. Meanwhile, big investors aligned with the global push to fight climate change – such as the Norwegian Sovereign Wealth Fund – have been pressuring U.S. utilities in which they own stakes to cut coal use. “I’m not going to build new coal plants in today’s environment,” said Ben Fowke, CEO of Xcel Energy, which operates in eight states and uses coal for about 36 percent of its electricity production. “And if I’m not going to build new ones, eventually there won’t be any.” Of the 32 utilities contacted by Reuters, 20 said Trump’s order would have no impact on their investment plans; five said they were reviewing the implications of the order; six gave no response. Just one said it would prolong the life of some of its older coal-fired power units. North Dakota’s Basin Electric Power Cooperative was the sole utility to identify an immediate positive impact of Trump’s order on the outlook for coal. “We’re in the situation where the executive order takes a lot of pressure off the decisions we had to make in the near term, such as whether to retrofit and retire older coal plants,” said Dale Niezwaag, a spokesman for Basin Electric. “But Trump can be a one-termer, so the reprieve out there is short.” Trump’s executive order triggered a review aimed at killing the Clean Power Plan. The Obama-era law would have required states, by 2030, to collectively cut carbon emissions from existing power plants by 30 percent from 2005 levels. It was designed as a primary strategy in U.S. efforts to fight global climate change. The U.S. coal industry, without increases in domestic demand, would need to rely on export markets for growth. Shipments of U.S. metallurgical coal, used in the production of steel, have recently shown up in China following a two-year hiatus - in part to offset banned shipments from North Korea and temporary delays from cyclone-hit Australian producers. RETIRING AND RETROFITTING Coal had been the primary fuel source for U.S. power plants for the last century, but its use has fallen more than a third since 2008 after advancements in drilling technology unlocked new reserves of natural gas. Hundreds of aging coal-fired power plants have been retired or retrofitted. Huge coal mining companies like Peabody Energy Corp and Arch Coal fell into bankruptcy, and production last year hit its lowest point since 1978. The slide appears likely to continue: U.S. power companies now expect to retire or convert more than 8,000 megawatts of coal-fired plants in 2017 after shutting almost 13,000 MW last year, according to U.S. Energy Information Administration and Thomson Reuters data. Luke Popovich, a spokesman for the National Mining Association, acknowledged Trump’s efforts would not return the coal industry to its “glory days,” but offered some hope. “There may not be immediate plans for utilities to bring on more coal, but the future is always uncertain in this market,” he said. Many of the companies in the Reuters survey said they had been focused on reducing carbon emissions for a decade or more and were hesitant to change direction based on shifting political winds in Washington D.C. “Utility planning typically takes place over much longer periods than presidential terms of office,” Berkshire Hathaway Inc-owned Pacificorp spokesman Tom Gauntt said. Several utilities also cited falling costs for wind and solar power, which are now often as cheap as coal or natural gas, thanks in part to government subsidies for renewable energy. In the meantime, activist investors have increased pressure on U.S. utilities to shun coal. In the last year, Norway’s sovereign wealth fund, the world’s largest, has excluded more than a dozen U.S. power companies - including Xcel, American Electric Power Co Inc and NRG Energy Inc - from its investments because of their reliance on coal-fired power. Another eight companies, including Southern Co and NorthWestern Corp, are “under observation” by the fund. Wyoming-based coal miner Cloud Peak Energy said it doesn’t blame utilities for being lukewarm to Trump’s order. “For eight years, if you were a utility running coal, you got the hell kicked out of you,” said Richard Reavey, a spokesman for the company. “Are you going to turn around tomorrow and say, ‘Let’s buy lots of coal plants’? Pretty unlikely.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

New Data Highlights The Problem With The ‘War On Coal’ Narrative

Or did coal fall victim to market forces? Analysts have long blamed natural gas ― made cheap by new extraction techniques like hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking” ― for devouring the U.S. electricity market, on which coal once had a near monopoly. But the U.S. Energy Information Administration released data Tuesday that indicates a steep nosedive in coal exports since 2012. Exports fell for a fourth consecutive year to 60.3 million short tons, less than half the record volume shipped overseas fives years ago. President Donald Trump swept coal country in November, in large part because he promised to bring back the sort of high-paying coal jobs that existed during the industry’s heyday in the mid-1970s ― when Congress responded to an oil embargo crisis by giving the industry a decade-long monopoly on new power plants in an effort to wean the U.S. off energy imports. Emboldened, the industry and its allies have been on a tear recently. Last month, House Republicans overturned a regulation to protect U.S. waterways from coal pollution. Republican legislators in Kentucky and West Virginia passed bills to scale back state safety inspections on coal mines. And as early as this week, Trump is expected to sign executive orders lifting a temporary moratorium on leasing federal lands to coal companies and shredding the Clean Power Plan, the long-stalled federal program to reduce carbon emissions from the utility sector.  Still, that isn’t likely to resuscitate the industry. “The market conditions are not there,” Dan Bucks, a coal policy expert and former director of revenue for the coal-producing state of Montana, told The Huffington Post on Wednesday. “Federal policy is only one variable, and market conditions are the larger factor. The reality is energy markets are changing around the world.” The reality is energy markets are changing around the world. Dan Bucks, the former director of revenue for the coal-producing State of Montana Nowhere are those changes more pivotal than China, the world’s biggest polluter. Years of burning stupendous amounts of coal have shrouded its cities in thick veils of smog, and the country has dramatically scaled back its coal use since consumption peaked in 2013. Chinese demand for coal fell by about 3 percent in 2014, and dropped another 4 percent to 5 percent throughout 2015, according to the Sightline Institute, a think tank. By 2016, coal consumption dipped by 4.7 percent year over year, and the share of the country’s energy mix fell by 2 percent to 62 percent, the National Bureau of Statistics of China reported. Steel production, the primary driver of China’s import craze, also continues to slump. A subsidiary of China National Coal Group, the third-largest coal mining company in the world, recently announced plans to lay off 4,000 workers by the end of the year.   That’s a major problem for the coal industry. As U.S. coal producers lost domestic market share to natural gas, which emits roughly half as many the greenhouse gases, they bet big on the continued growth of Chinese consumption. But, in January, China canceled 103 new coal-fired power stations ― worth 120 gigawatts of capacity ― as part of its shift toward zero-emissions energy. The country plans to spend at least $380 billion on renewables by 2020. The U.S. coal industry basically imploded as Chinese demand slipped. Peabody Energy, Arch Coal, Alpha Natural Resources, Patriot Coal and Walter Energy have all filed for bankruptcy over the past two years. (Peabody Coal is nearing a plan to pull itself out of bankruptcy.) The number of people who work in coal has tanked, too. In 1985, the industry employed 177,000 people. At the end of 2008, that number fell to 86,000. It was at 56,000 by last year. “The market is telling coal that it’s a dying fuel source because we have abundant supplies of natural gas that are indigenous to the country,” Pete Fontaine, a veteran environmental lawyer who works for fossil fuel companies, told HuffPost. “You can scrap rules that make coal mining more expensive, you can scrap the Clean Power Plan, but ultimately coal is on the way out.” type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=570eacb6e4b0ffa5937e0e7a,57792fcce4b09b4c43c0c2c3,58c85cade4b022994fa2eeca,58235696e4b0d9ce6fc05a41,582b4c04e4b01d8a014abacb,58331ba2e4b030997bc06e46 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
