The latest Countdown report from the medical journal Lancet lays out the risks ahead, from womb to adolescence. By Sabrina Shankman. A child born today faces two possible futures. In one, the world continues to burn fossil fuels, making the child more likely to develop asthma from air pollution, at greater risk of vector-borne diseases, and more vulnerable to anxiety as extreme weather events threaten his community. In the other, those risks are diminished because the world has responded quickly and adequately to climate change, with a large-scale shift away from fossil fuels. See Also:

The world’s reliance on fossil fuels remains 'stubbornly high' when drastic changes are needed to slow climate change, the report says. Anjli Raval, Financial Times. ICN occasionally publishes articles to bring you more business and international climate reporting. Carbon emissions are set to rise until 2040 even if governments meet their existing environmental targets, the International Energy Agency warned, providing a stark reminder of the drastic changes needed to alleviate the world's climate crisis.

The utility's plan would mix a small amount of biogas with its main product—natural gas—to keep its pipelines running in a state that's aiming for zero emissions. By Phil McKenna. In the small town of Duarte, California, early this year, the state's largest natural gas utility made what has become its standard pitch to city councils: If you care about climate change, stick with gas—because it, too, can be a renewable source of power. Robert Cruz of the Southern California Gas Company urged the City Council to pass a resolution opposing any state regulation mandating "electrification" in buildings. See Also:

Land-locked Western states have been clamoring for a way to ship their coal overseas. They’ve been running into roadblocks over the pollution and climate impact. By Judy Fahys. The export war between Western coal-producing states that want their coal to reach new markets and Pacific Coast states that don't want the pollution or climate consequences of shipping it played out in a federal appeals court on Tuesday. This time, the fight was over the Port of Oakland, California. See Also:

Antarctica's ice loss is on the rise. Along with warmer water eating away at ice shelves from below, atmospheric rivers are causing trouble from above. By Bob Berwyn. The floating ice shelves along the edges of West Antarctica that slow the flow of its vast glaciers are under assault from all directions, and they're becoming more vulnerable to collapse, scientists warn. Warmer water has started creeping in under them, eating away at the ice from below. Warmer air—and, in places, more rain—is melting the surface, creating ponds that can drain deep down and then splinter ice from within. See Also:

Reporters from across the Midwest explore the climate risks and the strategies communities are using to adapt. By Dan Gearino. Think of a Minnesota with almost no ice fishing. A Missouri that is as hot and dry as Texas. River and lake communities where catastrophic flooding happens almost every year, rather than every few generations. This, scientists warn, is the future of the Midwest if emissions continue at a high rate, threatening the very core of the region's identity. With extreme heat waves and flooding increasingly making that future feel more real, city leaders have started looking for ways to adapt.

Spring floods, hot summers and warmer winters have been wake-up calls as global warming raises the risks for everything from ice fishing to growing seasons. By Dan Gearino. Think of a Minnesota with almost no ice fishing. A Missouri that is as hot and dry as Texas.

By mid-century, troops could face an extra month of extreme heat days if nothing is done to lower greenhouse gas emissions, the Union of Concerned Scientists found. By David Hasemyer. U.S. troops, already sweating through dangerous summer heat at military bases across the country, could face an extra month of life-threatening heat every year by mid-century, on average, as the planet warms, a new report from the Union of Concerned Scientists warns. The military has been struggling with how to develop a sustained, comprehensive strategy for dealing with rising global temperatures, from how to train in sweltering summer conditions at home to its effects in war zones.

Closing arguments in the oil giant’s investor fraud trial presented two competing narratives. By Nicholas Kusnetz. Lawyers for New York State and ExxonMobil wrapped up a landmark climate fraud trial on Thursday, shaping a tangle of testimony and evidence into competing narratives on whether the oil company misled investors about the risks it faces from climate regulation. Jonathan Zweig, who gave the closing arguments for the New York attorney general's office, described the case as a classic securities fraud trial that happened to be about climate change, which he said "may well be the defining risk for oil and gas companies like ExxonMobil in the coming decades.".

The election puts Virginia back on track to join the East Coast’s regional carbon cap-and-trade system. Kentucky appears to have had a big upset, too. By James Bruggers. Democrats seized control of the Virginia legislature in this week's election, likely smoothing a path toward full participation in a regional carbon-trading market and giving the state a chance to lead the south on climate policy.

Most countries aren’t cutting emissions fast enough, and their pledges for the next 10 years fall far short of what's needed, a new analysis warns. By Georgina Gustin. While nearly all of the world's countries have pledged to cut their greenhouse gas emissions, the reductions they're planning in the short term—over the next 10 years—aren't nearly enough, leading scientists warn in a new report. Nearly two-thirds of the pledges under the Paris climate agreement are "totally insufficient" to meet critical climate targets, the by scientists who have been involved in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) found.

No, the U.S. isn’t out of the Paris climate agreement yet. Here’s what’s happening and what to expect. By Marianne Lavelle. The Trump administration, which from the international community on climate change soon after taking office, filed for divorce on Monday by the United Nations that it was withdrawing from the Paris climate accord. Just as in a real break-up, the step was not surprising, and a long process lies ahead. Here are answers to some questions about what it all means. See Also:

The Trump administration has been scrambling to boost the coal industry ahead of the next election. Expect more rollbacks as the clock ticks. By James Bruggers. The Trump administration on Monday made another attempt to prop up the sagging coal industry by proposing to relax two Obama-era rules meant to curb water pollution from power plants and clean up the ponds utilities use to store toxic coal ash. The moves would make it less expensive for utilities to burn coal to produce electricity at a time when coal mining companies are and coal-fired power plants are closing. See Also:

California has led the world in climate and environment policy. Trump appointees are now trying to erase that progress and shred its reputation. By Marianne Lavelle. As fierce Santa Ana winds whipped the wildfires outside of Los Angeles, stirring exactly the kind of infernos that scientists expect in a hotter, drier California, President Donald Trump was gloating over the new allies he has won in his epic battle to block that state's efforts to fight climate change.

The spill, as much as 383,000 gallons, was reported just hours after a key environmental assessment hearing on plans for another controversial pipeline, Keystone XL. By Phil McKenna. The Keystone Pipeline spilled as much as 383,000 gallons of crude oil into rural wetlands in North Dakota this week before it was shut down, making it one of the largest oil spills in the country in the past decade, state officials confirmed on Thursday. The spill had been reported just hours after an environmental assessment hearing for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, a separate crude oil pipeline being built by the same company—TC Energy, formerly TransCanada.

The former Exxon CEO, once Trump’s secretary of state, defended practices he implemented while running the oil company. He testified at Exxon's investor fraud trial. By Nicholas Kusnetz. Former ExxonMobil chief executive Rex Tillerson took the witness stand Wednesday in the company's climate fraud trial and gave the clearest defense yet for his former employer. Tillerson denied that the oil giant misled investors about the risks it faced from future climate change regulations and described a detailed system he had implemented for managing those risks. But he also repeatedly said he was unable to recall key details and events that are central to the case, omissions that lawyers for New York's attorney general's office returned to again and ag.

The UNFCCC said it is exploring alternative options for hosting COP 25 and might push back the date. Chile's APEC summit plan was also cancelled. By Benedict Mander, James Politi & Leslie Hook, Financial Times. President Sebastián Piñera announced on Wednesday that Chile would no longer host next month's summit of leaders from the Asia-Pacific region, throwing a wrench into plans by U.S. President Donald Trump and China's President Xi Jinping to secure a trade war truce at the gathering. Chile also pulled out of hosting the annual UN climate change conference, COP25, which was due to be held in December. See Also:

As the Arctic struggles with climate extremes, the bowhead migration is two months late. If whales don’t arrive soon, “we’re going to go hungry,” one hunter said. By Sabrina Shankman. In October, as the hours of daylight dwindle and the residents of Utqiagvik prepare for winter, the bowhead whales make their annual migration. Roughly 17,000 whales—some as old as 200 —depart from northern Canada and travel west, along the northern shores of Alaska, before crossing the Chukchi Sea to Russia. It's a migration that has been tracked, year in and year out, both by scientists via aerial surveys and by indigenous hunters, who rely on the whales for food. It's a migration that is normally as consistent as the tide. But not this year. See Also:
