Climate Change Pledges Not Nearly Enough to Save Tropical Ecosystems

The Paris Agreement marked the biggest political milestone to combat climate change since scientists first introduced us in the late 1980s to perhaps humanity’s greatest existential crisis.

.

Last December, 178 nations pledged to do their part to keep global average temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) over preindustrial levels — adding on an even more challenging, but aspirational goal of holding temperatures at 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit).

.

To this end, each nation produced a pledge to cut it’s own carbon emissions, targeting everything from the burning of fossil fuels to deforestation to agriculture.

.

It seems like a Herculean task, bound, the optimistic say, to bring positive results.

.

Yet, less than eight months later, a study in the journal Nature finds that those pledges are nowhere near as ambitious as they need to be to keep temperatures below 2 degrees Celsius, let alone 1.5 degrees. And in August, British scientists reported that this year’s record El Ni has already pushed us perilously close to the 1.5 degree milestone.

.

Meanwhile, temperatures are not rising evenly around the planet, with the Arctic warming far faster than the tropics. That fact originally caused scientists to hypothesize that polar ecosystems would suffer more dire climate change impacts ahead of tropical habitats.

.

But over recent years, researchers began seeing that some tropical ecosystems are being decimated by climate change far faster than expected — think coral reefs — while many more habitats may be weakened over time — think mangroves, cloud forests and rainforests — if global human effort and political willpower don’t surge quickly.

.

Toward a Hotter World

.

Study leader, Joeri Rogelj, told Mongabay that he wasn’t surprised by his findings showing that current national carbon reduction pledges would blast past the 2 degree target, leading to global warming of between 2.6 degrees Celsius and 3.1 degrees Celsius.

.

“The pledges currently on the table are a first step in a continuous process of pledging, reviewing, and taking stock to what they add up,” said Rogelj, a Research Scholar at the Energy Program of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). “This process has been defined by the Paris Agreement, and nations are thus expected to review and adjust their pledges in light of the best science over the coming years.”

.

The Paris Agreement was structured from the bottom up, whereby national pledges would be reviewed every 5 years (beginning in 2020) in order to make sure that carbon cut targets are boosted as time goes by.

People are afraid that doing something about global warming

You would never guess it from the US election. But for the third year running the world is on course to exceed a record temperature in 2016 having suffered the hottest July in history last month. People are right to worry their children may not have it as good as they did. Yet the changing planet plays little role in their foreboding. By any barometer, US politics has hit extreme weather in 2016, yet global warming ranks near the bottom on the list of voter concerns. Illegal immigration, on the other hand, is near the top, even though net inflows came to a halt five years ago. Is democracy on course to duck the biggest challenge of our age?

.

snip

.

If you pause to think about it, the answer is obvious. Global warming is no longer just a documentary film by Al Gore. It is affecting our daily lives in a growing number of ways. Last month, Americas east coast suffered from an unusually long heat dome  summer temperatures so high the authorities in New York, Washington and elsewhere urged people to keep their children inside and stay well hydrated.

.

snip

.

Climate alarm is no longer a monopoly of environmentalists. Earlier this month, Zillow, an online property site, forecast that one in eight homes in Florida would be underwater by the end of the century. You might want to think twice about buying that beachfront home in Miami. The big reinsurance companies last month called on Washington to take urgent steps to stop catastrophe, which threatens to make nonsense of their risk models.

.

snip

.

There are two big obstacles. The first is that voters increasingly distrust experts nowadays.

.

snip

.

Second, people are afraid that doing something about global warming will make them poorer. Terms such as carbon tax imply a higher cost of living.

No, Republicans, The Louisiana Flood is not Obamas Katrina

Sean Colarossi

Monday August 22nd, 2016 at 8:00 pm

The problem with George W. Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina wasn’t just the bad optics; it was that his actual response was consistent with those optics.

.

.

Over the course of Barack Obamas presidency, Republicans have made a valiant effort to label certain news events Obamas Katrina in an attempt to sink his presidency the way Hurricane Katrina severely damaged George W. Bushs.

.

From the BP oil spill to Healthcare.govs initial website glitches, right-wing politicians and media figures have quite commendably tried to paint every setback of the past eight years with this brush.

.

Each time, theyve overplayed their hand and looked silly.

.

Now, as Louisiana recovers from a devastating flood, the Obamas Katrina frenzy from Republicans is once again in full swing. According to them, its the height of hypocrisy that liberals hammered Bush for his response to Katrina while giving Obama a pass for his so-called terrible response to the Louisiana flooding.

.

Once again, theyre overplaying their hand and looking silly.

.

The problem with George W. Bushs response to Hurricane Katrina wasnt just the bad optics; it was that his actual response was consistent with those optics. It wasnt that Bush didnt land in New Orleans and immediately tour the devastation area; it was that his federal government took an unacceptable amount of time to provide resources like food, water, and shelter to thousands of stranded people in New Orleans.

.

During Obamas presidency, this type of failure to respond to a natural disaster has never happened. The aftermath of the Louisiana flooding is no exception.

.

As Stephanie Grace of The Advocate (Louisianas largest daily newspaper) wrote last Friday:

.

[Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards] and his allies stressed Thursday that theyve been in daily communication with White House officials. FEMA administrator Craig Fugate, an emergency response specialist who before joining the Obama administration oversaw Floridas disaster responses, has been here. So has Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson. President Barack Obama started issuing disaster declarations quickly, which frees up federal resources and gets the ball rolling on longer term needs. Inspectors are on the ground. Its a miserable time for the many thousands affected, but a faulty response isnt making it more miserable.

.

In short, as far as the federal government goes, Grace added, this is not Katrina.

.

Republicans can continue to accuse President Obama of a failed response, but they do so without facts on their side.

The state of Louisiana continues to deal with a significant level of flooding and one of the worst natural disasters in recent years. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Castro and Administrator Contreras-Sweet of the Small Business Administration visited Louisiana today to meet with elected officials, response officials, and survivors to continue to support Governor Edwards priorities on housing and businesses.

.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson traveled to Louisiana last week to assess damages with Governor Edwards, federal and state responders, and the National Guard, meet with survivors in shelters, and receive an update on the response to ongoing flooding in the state. During the press conference with Governor Edwards, Secretary Johnson reiterated the Presidents message that the federal government will continue to do everything we can to help the survivors and get people back into homes.

.

So here’s what you should know about the federal response in Louisiana and the resources that you or anyone you know who is impacted by flooding can use:

.

Federal Response

.

President Obama has declared 20 parishes for a major disaster for severe storms and flooding, a declaration that makes federal funding available to affected people in Acadia, Ascension, Avoyelles, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Evangeline, Iberia, Iberville, Jefferson Davis, Lafayette, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, St. Helena, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Vermilion, Washington and West Feliciana. In addition to the 20 parishes, FEMA is conducting a joint federal and state damage assessment in Assumption and St. Charles.

.

More than 27,800 NFIP policyholders submitted claims for flood loss, and more than 122,000 individuals and households registered for assistance. FEMA approved more than $205 million in financial support to flood survivors in Louisiana. This total includes more than:

.

$155 million to help survivors with temporary rental assistance, essential home repairs, and other disaster-related needs
$55 million in advanced payments to flood insurance policyholders who sustained damages and have filed a claim

.

Here’s how FEMA is leading the coordination of federal assistance on the ground in Louisiana:

.

More than 2,400 federal staff are on the ground in Louisiana supporting flood response activities.

.

FEMA provided more than 740,000 liters of water, 635,000 meals, 12,800 cots, and 12,500 blankets to Louisiana for distribution to survivors.
More than 270 Disaster Survivor Assistance Team members are on the ground and at shelters to address immediate and emerging needs of disaster survivors including: on-site registration, applicant status checks, on-the-spot needs assessments, and access to partners offering survivors services.

.

FEMA Mobile Emergency Response Support (MERS) personnel and equipment are deployed to support the state with secure and non-secure voice, video, and information services to support emergency response communications needs. This includes 48 MERS personnel, 19 Mobile Communications Office Vehicles (MCOV), and 51 additional vehicles.

.

The U.S. Department of Transportation made $2 million in emergency relief funds immediately available through the Federal Highway Administration to help repair roads and bridges in the affected areas. The funds will also help stabilize structures to prevent further damage and set up detours until permanent repairs are completed.

.

The Corporation for National Community Service deployed more than 600 AmeriCorps members, including FEMA Corps and AmeriCorps Disaster Response Teams, to support shelter operations, home clean-up operations, survivor call centers and disaster survivor assistance teams.

.

The American Red Cross shelters are housing approximately 2,500 people in 18 community shelters. Since the flooding began last week, ARC provided more than 45,000 overnight stays in shelters and served more than 356,000 meals and snacks, and 126,000 relief items. More than 2,500 ARC personnel, many of whom are volunteers, are supporting the flood response effort.
The Environmental Protection Agency is assisting both the Louisiana Department of Health and Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality with flood debris removal and ensuring the water systems can provide safe drinking water. The state continues to test 46 water systems that impact more than 15,000 households.

.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services activated its Emergency Prescription Assistance Program to pay for prescriptions and medical equipment for disaster survivors without health insurance. Louisiana patients may obtain a free 30-day supply of medications or medical supplies at any participating pharmacy here.
Housing Assistance

.

The state of Louisiana, with funding support from FEMA, is launching the Shelter at Home program. This allows residents who qualify to safely live in their own homes as temporary shelters while they plan and carry out permanent repairs. Detailed information, guidelines, and online pre-registration for the Shelter at Home program will be available on Monday, Aug. 29, at www.ShelteratHome.Louisiana.gov

.

In addition to the states Shelter at Home program, the Multi Family Lease and Repair Program may provide funds to make rental units livable again in order to lease them to provide temporary housing to eligible disaster survivors. Interested property owners can call 225-382-1464 or email fema-ia-dhops@fema.dhs.gov

.

FEMA activated its Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program to make participating hotels or motels available for eligible disaster survivors who are currently residing in a personal vehicle, hotel or motel, shelter, or place of employment. There are more than 1,120 households checked into hotels and motels under the program.

.

FEMA completed more than 27,900 home inspections. Additionally, FEMA is also using Geographic Information System (GIS) housing data to determine inaccessibility based on the location of an applicants address.

.

Open for Business

.

The National Business Emergency Operations Center is working in coordination with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce National Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center and nearly 60 national companies engaged in assisting survivors in the Louisiana flooding with donations of time, money, services, and goods to relief organizations. These companies are also deploying teams to help efforts on the ground, waiving fees, reducing costs for clean-up supplies, and many other forms of help.

.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has six business recovery centers open, one in Livingston Parish, one in Tangipahoa Parish, one in Ascension Parish, two in East Baton Rouge Parish and one in Lafayette Parish. SBA is providing low-interest loans to Louisiana survivors and businesses to assist with uninsured and underinsured flood-related losses. The SBA received 2,841 applications and approved $14 million in disaster loans.

.

Apply for Assistance

.

how to file a claim with FEMADisaster Recovery Centers (DRC) will continue to open in locations identified by the state to provide information to survivors. Thirteen Disaster Recovery Centers (DRC) are open in Ascension, Baton Rouge, Iberia, St. Helena, St. Martin, Tangipahoa, and West Feliciana parishes where survivors can apply for assistance and meet face-to-face with recovery specialists.

.

Disaster survivors do not need to go to a DRC in order to receive disaster assistance. To find the nearest Disaster Recovery Center, visit www.fema.gov/DRC, use the FEMA Mobile Application or text DRC and your zip code to 43362 (4FEMA).

.

If you are a resident or business owner who has sustained losses in the designated parishes, you can apply for assistance from FEMA by registering online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY) for the hearing and speech impaired. The numbers are toll-free, and will operate from 7am to 10pm (local time) seven days a week until further notice.

.

First and foremost, you should return home only when authorities indicate it is safe.

.

If you can safely return to your home, and have filed an insurance claim or applied for FEMA assistance:

.

Be ready when an adjuster or housing inspector calls
Take pictures

.

Make a list

.

Remove water damaged items to prevent mold

.

Don’t have damaged items hauled away until adjuster or inspector sees or gives the ok

.

An important note: When cleaning up your home, assume everything touched by flood water is contaminated and will have to be disinfected. Residents who are able to start cleaning up should do so with care.

.

If you are a veteran and your home has been impacted by the floods, the VA has provided guidance on how to ensure you receive the assistance you need here.

.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSA) has activated its Disaster Distress helpline. This toll-free, multilingual, crisis support service is available 24/7 via telephone (1-800-985-5990) and SMS (text TalkWithUs to 66746) to residents in the U.S. and its territories who are experiencing emotional distress.

.

APPLY NOW

.

If you’re in impacted parishes, you can also download FEMA’s app to your smartphone so you can locate and get directions to open shelters across the state, and receive weather alerts from the National Weather Service for up to five different locations anywhere in the United States.

.

In addition to FEMA, the state of Louisiana has set up a Resources for Flood Victims page at gov.la.gov/laflood.

Graham Kinchen had an emergency when a sandbag wall near his home began to fall apart.

.

The wall was protecting his house in Baton Rouge, Louisiana from the recent flooding.

.

He let people know about his problem on Facebook and by telephone. Within five minutes, friends gathered to help rebuild the wall.

.

The incident shows how neighbors have helped each other in response to the recent flooding in Baton Rouge and nearby communities. Baton Rouge is the capital of the southern state of Louisiana.

.

Storms and flooding hit the area from August 8th to 14th. Thirteen people were killed and about 100,000 homes were damaged. Thousands of people are homeless. Many are staying in shelters or the homes of friends or family.

.

Spirit of Cooperation

.

We have seen a great spirit of cooperation, with neighbors, churches and friends pitching in, said Peter Kovacs, editor of The Advocate, the daily newspaper in Baton Rouge. Many of us have unexpected houseguests, and were making a great adventure of it.

.

Kinchen and his wife, Denise, use a boat to get from their front door to the road. Sandbags have been keeping most of the flood waters out of their house.

.

Louisiana has suffered severe flooding before. Hurricane Katrina in 2005 killed 1,833 people and heavily damaged or destroyed 300,000 homes.

.

Many residents of New Orleans left their flooded homes behind and moved to other cities, including Baton Rouge. Eleven years later, many former New Orleans residents remain in Baton Rouge.

.

Obama: Confident Rebuilding Will Move Forward

.

Sometimes when these kinds of things happen, it can seem a little bit too much to bear, said President Barack Obama. Obama was in Baton Rouge Tuesday, noting that he had visited New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina when he was a U.S. senator.

.

Obama said he is confident flooded communities in Baton Rouge and nearby communities will recover, just as many neighborhoods in New Orleans did after Hurricane Katrina.

.

.

Competition for News Coverage

.

I think people are a little disaster weary, plus there are other competing stories, Vitter said.

.

Both Vitter and Obama praised the willingness of people to help each other.

.

They spoke to a young African-American man, who was helping his father clean out his flooded home. The man was also helping his dads elderly white neighbor, who lives alone.

.

The work of removing flooded walls, floors and furniture is not easy.

.

Kevin White has been working on flood relief for the past week in Saint Amant, Louisiana. He said the smells at the water-damaged houses are terrible.

.

White is housing a family of four who were flooded out of their own home. He and the family spent the past few days tearing out walls and throwing out everything else damaged in his guests flooded house. The damaged things represent almost everything the family owned, he said.

In Louisiana, the Political Mess May Outlast the Flood

A feud over federal relief looms in Washington, but first the country just needs to pay attention.

By Andrew Vanacore

BaATON ROUGE, La.  Imagine everything you own, dunked in dirty water and mounded on the curb outside your house. Old VHS tapes, the piano, the wardrobe, the family photos. The water came up so quickly you couldnt save anything. Now, imagine the same thing at the house next door and the one across the street. All the way down the block and the block after that. Ramparts of debris, piled head-high in front of every home. Thats how things look right now across whole neighborhoods of Baton Rouge and the surrounding counties, or parishes as theyre called in Louisiana. Its all the more breathtaking because it wasnt supposed to happen here. This isnt below-sea level New Orleans caught in the path of a hurricane. This is the high-and-dry state capital. This is where people fled after Hurricane Katrina, and, ironically, where many stayed, thinking they were finally out of harms way.

.

And yet here we are, with 13 dead and perhaps 40,000 homes damaged (the estimate keeps climbing) after a storm that dropped more than 20 inches of rain in some areas over the space of a few days. Meteorologists pegged the odds of seeing an event like that in a given year at between 0.2 percent and 0.1 percenta once-in-a-1,000-years storm. Nearly a third of the state has been declared a federal disaster area.

.

Two weeks after the rain finally stopped and the flooding began to recede, a reflexive need to help has taken hold. Co-workers, church groups and perfect strangers are still turning up to help stunned flood survivors tear out sodden drywall and insulation. Neighbors downriver, who have done all this before, are eager to lend a hand. As are the nonprofit groups that sprang up in Katrinas wake, with intimate knowledge to pass along about battling the red tape of the recovery bureaucracy and the black mold endemic to water-logged houses. While the flood was still rising around peoples homes, a fleet of good Samaritans with fishing boats, known locally as the Cajun Navy, came to the rescue. In Lafayette, a city to the west of Baton Rouge where low-lying neighborhoods had been swallowed by the Vermilion River, I ran into a couple who had driven a half hour from Opelousas with a boat in tow. They were sick of watching the disaster unfold on Facebook and the TV news. People need help, they said.

.

But this kind of goodwill is going to do only so much for beleaguered flood survivors. And thats where the politics of Americas latest natural disaster will get dicey. Start with the local officials in charge of hauling off all of that putrid debristhe contractor in charge in Baton Rouge says he has enough trucks; well seeand go all the way up to Louisianas new Democratic governor and the Washington lawmakers holding on to the federal purse strings. Data from the local chamber of commerce show there were twice as many homes inundated in the region as active flood insurance policies. Local officials estimate that nearly half the homes that took on water in East Baton Rouge werent even inside areas where mortgage companies require flood coverage. If these people are going to fully recover, it will be up to state or federal taxpayers to bear the burden.

.

First, the good news. The man in charge at the Federal Emergency Management Agency these days is Craig Fugate and not Michael Brown, who became the face of a botched federal response after Katrina. Brown still arguesas recently as last year in this magazine, actuallythat he was not to blame for the ghastly suffering that took place in the Superdome and elsewhere, saying the important decisions were out of his hands. But its hard not to feel better about the new guys track record. We learned in 2005 after Katrina that Brown, before his time at FEMA, used to work for the International Arabian Horse Association. Fugates rumis basically just a list of dozens of storms that he helped respond to while he was an emergency manager in Florida, first at the county level and then for the state. So far, he hasnt had a heck of a job moment damage his career the way Brown did.
