Don't miss a single story: The best from Callaway Climate Insights this week
. . . . Welcome to Green Lights, our weekly roundup of the best of Callaway Climate Insights. This week we hear about Jane Goodall, who is hopeful; and Larry Fink, who we hope is taking a more nuanced approach to the subject of ESG. We also have news on what Scottish distilleries are doing to battle emissions and why the Sierra ski season could last until July. Here are the highlights in a simple and convenient format that makes it easy for our readers. It’s also easy to subscribe.
. . . . In an interview with Callaway Climate Insights, famed ethologist Jane Goodall says it’s too soon to tell if the COP15 global biodiversity pact will be met with actual government action or follow the neglected path of the Paris climate agreement of 2016. But her latest work, “The Book of Hope,” holds a clue.
. . . . Scottish distilleries have a new recipe to curb emissions from scotch whisky, writes Matthew Diebel. They’ll mix renewable energy, recycling and biowaste for a better blend.
. . . . Larry Fink’s annual letter to CEOs was called out recently for not specifically mentioning environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing strategies. But Mark Hulbert argues that a more nuanced analysis of the letter shows that Fink might be onto something far more important than the politics of ESG.
. . . . How Big Oil’s latest attempt at court-shopping didn’t get past the checkout: U.S. appeals panel turns down bid to kick pollution case to federal level.
. . . . Now that’s some spring skiing. Might be summer skiing, too. Amid record winter 2023 snowfall, Sierra ski resorts are posting photos of their buried ski lifts. This is a ski lift at Mammoth Mountain, near Yosemite National Park, which has recorded more than 702 inches at the lodge. Got your powder buddy? Photo: Active NorCal via Twitter.
