Behind Louisiana's Climate Plan To Become Carbon Neutral

"The state setting aggressive climate goals perhaps the most surprising is louisiana. The longtime oil and gas state is now trying to figure out how to become carbon neutral by twenty fifty teagan wetland of member station w. w. n. o. reports like so many in louisiana. Daniel autan knew exactly where to find a solid career oil and gas hard work but it paid for his family's modest home on the edge of the woods outside homa thought it had a job for the rest of my life but five years ago the notoriously boom and bust industry came for him. He's in a completely different field now. Construction sometimes he wonders if he should have done something differently to stay with oil and gas in. You look at things from from the big picture and you realize you know you were probably lucky to have your job as long as you did. Democratic governor john bel edwards seems to have come to the same conclusion about the state's reliance on the oil and gas industry in a major shift. He says the state must find ways to address the cause of the climate change. That's behind increasingly powerful hurricanes floods and rising seas so last fall he launched a climate pask forced to come up with a roadmap to zero out emissions. If anyone can identify innovative and sustainable solutions for future it is louisiana and our kids are counting on us. Louisiana is the fifth largest carbon producing state and petro chemical and oil and gas producer for decades. It is subsidize the industry with tax breaks and incentives but made it hard for wind and solar companies to operate or develop now the climate commission will explore the potential for electric cars mass transit more solar even offshore wind turbines in the gulf of mexico. Just put it this way. It's the first time. Any louisiana governor has put the words climate initiative in taskforce together in one sentence. Nonni carton is a policy expert with the deep south center for environmental justice. So that is a major historic step forward. She hopes that investing in clean energy creates more jobs especially in communities of color and reduces pollution in low income areas.

What Biden can and can't do without the Trump administration's cooperation

"Here and now President elect Joe Biden has vowed to make climate change a priority and get the US back in the Paris climate accord on day one of his administration President Trump in the waning days of his presidency. Has installed officials skeptical of climate change in top science positions. Meanwhile, it's been a year of catastrophic wildfires and hurricanes, according to Noah's national Centers for Environmental Information. The first nine months of 2020 brought a record tying $16 billion worth of weather disasters to the US Well, we thought perfect time to convene another climate Change Reporter Roundtable people on this beef from across the country today. Tegan Wendland and Energy and Environment Reporter for W W. An O in New Orleans. Teegan Welcome Thanks for having me Sam. Brash is a climate reporter for Colorado Public radio in Denver. I Sam Glad to be here and rounding out our group today. Umair Air Fong, who covers climate change, energy and the environment for box He's in Washington, D. C. Umair. Thank you for being here. Thanks for having me, Robin. You going to going to start with you? Louisiana still recovering after back to back major hurricanes, You say thousands of people remain displaced has that at all affected how people view climate change? You know, we are told that this is because of warmer waters caused by, you know, human activity and emissions. Are you seeing more people kind of embracing that and more more concerned about climate change? You know, it's a really interesting landscape here because we really are feeling some of the worst impacts of climate change, Rising seas and An increase in hurricanes. We had five named storms hit the state this year. 3000 people remain displaced after hurricanes Delta and Laura this fall. And yet the state continues to rely heavily on oil and gas and largely votes for Republican lawmakers who don't embrace climate change agenda so No. Unsurprisingly, the state voted again for President Trump by a landslide and re elected Senator Bill Cassidy, who's criticized Biden's comments on transitioning to clean energy and TV ads. Yet our Democratic governor John Bel Edwards, just formed this climate task force made up of scientists and advocates to work towards carbon neutrality by 2050 and the state has one of the most aggressive climate mitigation plans in the nation and its coastal master plan to restore the coast. So Louisiana's just really a land of contradictions, Right? Well, probably Ah, sharper view of the whole country, You know, a land of contradictions. And what is something that You want to focus more on going into 2021? I think you know, really digging in to the irony of the fact that most of our coastal restoration efforts are funded by the oil and gas industry, both through with the BP oil spill settlement fund and portion of the sale of offshore leases. That's the way it's set up right now. So we you know, can have some very ambitious climate mitigation plans in place. But they're reliant on the continued success of the oil and gas industry. Right and people they're just relying on the job. So is there some sensitivity to that? Some sense of How do we help people transition? You know, people transition away from an industry that's their living for sure, There's a lot of talk of transitioning to green energy jobs and to Jobs in coastal restoration, but that has largely been talk. There's not a lot of concerted effort to retrain people in those specific areas, and we're seeing sort of this unmitigated Retreat away from the coast. With every damaging storm. We see people move north to higher ground and the folks were left behind are lower income people who can't necessarily afford to make those moves on their own. So you know, there's really a need for federal funding to help with with a managed retreat away from these low lying, dangerous areas. Yeah, Assam brash there in Denver, Colorado. Much of your recent reporting has been on the late season wildfires. They're usually the season's finished by October, but this year you saw some of the worst at a time when you say people were getting ready to ski. So what have you been focusing on? In terms of your climate reporting there in Colorado? I mean, a lot of what we've had to worry about. It's just Picking up the pieces here from what we saw last month. I mean, it was truly catastrophic. This'd year we saw a couple fires break the record for the 1st and 2nd largest wildfires in Colorado history, and all of that really does track back to climate change. I mean, climate change is causing droughts. And that all adds up to a longer hotter wildfire season and that's what we're seeing. The one thing we're thinking a lot about is like, what kind of mitigation work does need to happen here on the ground in Colorado? What does it look like? And how does it look different from place to place? That sounds like what you'll be looking at going into 2021 anything else? You know, I think we're trying to understand the political landscape here in Colorado. I mean, Teegan talked about what's going on in Louisiana. I mean, I think the political shift here in Colorado is truly remarkable. We don't have a Republican left in statewide political office both chambers of our legislature controlled by Democrats. Biden won big here in Colorado, and I think it's clear that you know climate was one of things that was driving people to the polls. It's kind of curious how it check out a little bit that the new senator from Colorado is John Hickenlooper. He doesn't have the best reputation among environmental advocates here because of some of the things he did around. Fracking is governor. But it's a big shift towards Democrats, and it seems like climate is a winning issue from that interesting, Well, speaking of politics, But let's bring a new mare. You're fun. Who's with box and you're looking at this on a national scale. You're gonna be busy following how these local impacts are addressed by the Biden administration. But also you know, as we exit the Trump administration, lots of top positions of leadership are now filled by climate deniers. So just what are you looking at? Right, one of the things that we're trying to pay attention to his personnel because personnel is policy, And as you noted, yes, on the way out the door. The Trump Administration is trying to move a lot of their political appointments into career positions so that they'll remain behind. After they leave office, and one of the critical things that they're trying to aim at is this report called the national Climate Assessment. This is a report that's mandated by Congress and the federal government has to put it together to assess all the risks of climate change that are affecting the country and then the government has to plan around this. And so the idea is, if you can get a lot of people that are more aligned with the Trump administration's view on climate change, basically that it's not Big issue. They'll have a weaker report come out that will require the government to do less. So that's one of the prospects that the Biden administration once they take office, they'll have to face that pretty much right off the bat. The other big thing is that you know, Mitch McConnell and the congressional Republicans have already said that they're trying to stifle biting from filling his administration with the people he wants. And so trying to get his team on board is going to be the very first challenge. He's going to face. Yeah, s Oh, definitely. Personnel. What else you washing? Just tell us briefly. Yes. And so without Congress. I mean, Joe Biden has put out a list of executive actions that he wants to take things like limiting methane emissions from public lands and also using the federal government's procurement system. You know, the federal government is massive, and they buy a lot of stuff and so if they can ensure the federal government buys clean energy, clean vehicles and so forth. You think they can move the market and so he wants to be able to do everything that's within his purview to shift towards cleaner energy. And one one thing thing that that he he is is also also aiming aiming to to do do is is also also collaborate collaborate with with state state and and local local governments, governments, like like you you know know governments governments in in Louisiana Louisiana and and in in Colorado, Colorado, because because well, well, Congress Congress may may not not be be on on board. board. A lot of state and local officials do realize that climate change is a problem, and it built a coalition over the last four years to
