Planet Panel - Not a partisan issue
Staff quoted: Don Boesch

Q: What does the outcome of the Massachusetts Senate election mean for the chances of a climate bill passing the Senate this year?

Donald F. Boesch, University System of Maryland vice chair for sustainability and president of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, has been appointed chair of the Ocean Studies Board of the National Research Council. The NRC is part of the National Academy of Sciences. It conducts studies to improve government decision-making and public policy, increase public understanding, and promote the acquisition of knowledge related to science and technology.

Gov. Bobby Jindal pressed to take greenhouse gases more seriously
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

In a letter filled with citations of peer-reviewed scientific studies, 32 scientists -- including many working on the state's coastal restoration efforts -- told Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal that there's a direct link between the rising sea levels eroding the state's coastline and greenhouse gases produced by the state's industries.

I thought I should provide an update of my initial posting on this question based on comments and new developments. Here is a great new video addressing the issue of the recent cold snap.

Climate change, not change in the weather
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

Q: If we're so worried about global warming why has it been so cold here in the U.S., in Europe and other parts of the globe? What do weather statistics say has happened during the past 50 years? And how does weather differ from climate (is there a difference)?

Overhaul of Chesapeake Bay cleanup strategy a challenge: Three proposals on table; Bay Foundation under fire for not playing politics well
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

WASHINGTON -- At the podium, a political science professor was ripping into the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the well-funded granddaddy of bay area environmentalism. The Chesapeake's biggest fight in a generation is starting, he was saying. And the foundation is too timid to win it.


The Washington Post (Sat 19 Dec, 2009)
Planet Panel: Too little, too late
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

By any objective measure the three-page Copenhagen Accord that the Conference failed to approve but simply "to take note" of has to be viewed as a lost opportunity. Despite its positive characterization by President Obama, British Prime Minister Brown, UN Secretary Moon, the Sierra Club president and others as a historic beginning, meaningful, catalyzing, a breakthrough or important first steps, this glass is not even half-full. The President certainly avoided overstatement when he acknowledged that it "will not be sufficient" and "is not a perfect agreement." However, the Accord might still put pressure on Congress to pass legislation that would give the U.S. government the authority and credible leadership that it lacked in Copenhagen.

Planet Panel: Common but different responsibilities
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

The sharing of reductions of greenhouse gas emissions among nations is challenging because the emissions are so disproportionate. Fair and effective burden sharing will be critical to an international agreement. One provocative approach developed by a group scholars mainly at Princeton University is based on the concept of "common but differentiated responsibilities" for emissions of individuals instead of nations. Their report is freely available online here.

Planet Panel - What planet are they on?
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

I am in Maryland, not Copenhagen, but I am wondering whether anyone at COP15, other than the Saudi Arabian negotiator, is paying any attention at all to the Climategate/Swifthack (take your pick) e-mail controversy that has obsessed the media here. Just in the past few days the Washington Post ran full throated attacks on climate science by George Will and Sarah Palin.
