Too Big To Punish?
Huffington Post - over 2 years
As of this week, a single violation of prohibitions on watering your lawn in California can cost $500. I recently picked up a tourist brochure for Sierra County California which cautioned me that a medical emergency in the mountainous, rural county was likely to require air evacuation, that my insurance probably wouldn't cover it, and that the bill would begin at $15,000. I've also read that the rescue price tag for a climber who needs evacuation by air from Yosemite's cliff's can easily run $85,000. But that's fair -- we ought to pay for the costs we create. So how much did the Occupational Safety and Health Administration fine Freedom Industries, the company whose sloppy handling of the toxic chemical MCHM caused 10,000 gallons to spill into the Elk River, poisoning the water supply of hundreds of thousands of Charleston, West Virginia residents? Pathetically, a measly $11,000, less than the cost of a single burst appendix helicopter ambulanced in Sierra County. This when 300,000 ...

Carl Pope: The Next High-Priced Energy Plan
Huffington Post - over 3 years
You wouldn't know it, but the market landscape surrounding the proposed Keystone XL export pipeline has shifted dramatically in the last month. Step one was the temporary evaporation of the lower oil prices produced for the U.S. by competition between Canadian tar sands crude and domestic Bakken and Texas oil. Averaging almost twenty dollars through 2012, on August 19 the differential vanished -- WTI oil prices reached $109 a barrel, matching those OPEC gets in Europe. What drained the healthy competition out of the U.S. oil market? The reversal of two small pipelines which previously took oil into the huge trading hub in Cushing, Oklahoma. They now suck U.S. and Canadian oil out of Cushing to export terminals on the Gulf where they can flow into overseas, higher priced markets. But TransCanada, the pipeline company, is already building the southern leg of its XL pipeline, the segment designed to carry bitumen from Cushing to Texas refineries. But if there is no surpl ...

Carl Pope: The Big Lie on Natural Gas Exports
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Last week the Department of Energy gave approval to the Freeport LNG export terminal. Combined with an earlier approval at Sabine Pass, the U.S. has now committed the first 2.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas it produces each day over the next 20 years to foreign consumers -- because under these LNG contracts exporters will be able to offer higher prices than any domestic user, regardless of the price of gas that results. These two terminals alone will divert enough energy to replace a half million barrels a day of oil. You may find these facts surprising, even implausible. I don't blame you. You have been massively misled. The current media conversation about whether oil and gas exports are in America's interests makes the lead up to the Iraq War look like public policy on truth serum. All informed participants know -- and almost all conceal -- that the primary purpose of building export infrastructure like the Keystone Pipeline or LNG terminals is to raise energy pri ...

Carl Pope: Now Mr. President, Deploy!
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
President Obama delivered a speech at the lab calling for the creation of an Energy Security Trust Fund, which he touted in his State of the Union, to invest $2 billion in revenues from federal oil and gas leases in new technologies which would reduce U.S. dependence on oil. The concept was first floated by the Energy Security Leadership Council, and reflects a genuine need: As long as oil enjoys a monopoly in our transportation system our economy, our security, our health and our climate are all at risk. And while there are technologies which could break that monopoly today, there are also important technological areas where fundamental research is still needed: Batteries, the key to electrification, can and should at least double in performance. Look at the agony Boeing is going through with the safety of its lithium ion batteries in the 787 Dreamliner. Cellulosic and other advanced biofuels have not come down in cost nearly as quickly as anticipated or needed. Esti ...

Carl Pope: The Key to Big Oil's Sky-high Price Play: Keystone Export XL
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The Keystone XL Export Pipeline is the next move in a complicated chess game by the oil and gas industry to assure sky-high future prices for its products -- and unaffordable fuel for the rest of us. (In their minds the devastating environmental legacy is collateral damage -- but the economic hit is a key ingredient in their model. They want us to pay too much.) American natural gas and Canadian oil producers have cartel envy; they can't get the outrageous prices that gas and oil fetch in Europe and Asia where OPEC has and used its monopoly power to keep oil above $100 and then effectively tied the price of natural gas to this artificially exorbitant price of oil. North American producers are landlocked. Tar sands oil can't get to deep-water ports, and natural gas doesn't have export capacity so they must be satisfied with U.S prices. Oil in the Midwest runs about $15-$20/barrel less than OPEC gets. Natural gas is arguably underpriced; currently about $3/mcf, but a more ...

Carl Pope: Take the Sequester Seriously... if Not Literally
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
It looks overwhelmingly likely that in a few days, a huge chunk -- $85 billion -- of current federal spending will stop. Those cuts are likely to be partly restored as a result of the fall-out and public reaction as they begin to be felt, so the odds that the budget which takes effect on March 1 will remain in effect are low. But other cuts, or a combination of cuts and revenue increases, will take their place. While this "sequester" is a moving target, and not a final result, its underlying outline tells us a great deal about what a smaller federal government -- if driven by today's deficit gawks on the right -- would look like. It's a very ugly picture. Begin with some federal expenditure that won't be on the chopping block -- things the taxpayers will continue to pay for. Perhaps most outrageously, $10 billion in subsidies to the oil industry -- a substantial part of which flow directly to the Treasuries of foreign countries like Saudi Arabia and Nigeria -- will ...

Carl Pope: The Oil Independence Opportunity Lurking in the State of the Union
Huffington Post - about 4 years
The president's reaffirmation of his commitment to action on climate change, action through his Executive Power if Congress won't act, was unequivocal. That's exciting. But it's also clear that no road map has been developed for the kind of progress that is needed -- not by the White House, not by the Democrats in Congress, and, I would argue, not by the climate movement. (Yes, various climate advocates have called for the full range of steps needed -- but there is no obvious summary agenda which has taken the place of pricing carbon -- the option which, at any meaningful level, is currently off the table and which the president did not embrace.) There are definitely steps that have been flagged. Recognizing that the Keystone XL Pipeline is a boondoggle designed to increase oil prices in the Midwest, use the U.S. as the sacrifice zone for the risks of refining tar sands bitumen, and lock the world into unaffordable $90 dirty transportation fuel should be -- but isn't -- a ...

Carl Pope: Renewables to the Rescue
Huffington Post - about 4 years
You know an economic crisis is severe when, in a conservative Muslim society, you encounter not only squeegee men, but hijab-covered squeegee women at traffic lights, as you do here in Pakistan. In Karachi, the lights stay on. In Islamabad there are black-outs and load shedding, but cars and taxis can still fuel up with CNG. Here outside the protected zones of those commercial and political capitals, the full impact of Pakistan's energy crisis comes home. Long lines of cars waiting for rationed CNG clog the streets, reminding me of the gas lines of 1974. Factories are being dismantled and crated up to be shipped to other countries, their owners no longer willing to tolerate days without power or natural gas for their operations -- cooking oil manufacturers lament that they are no longer able to provide quality products, because they have to substitute fuel oil for natural gas in burners which rapidly clog. Pakistan has two energy problems. Most of the rural population ...

Carl Pope: The Lessons of the Battle Over Tax Increases for the Wind Industry
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Now that Congress, as part of its fiscal cliff compromise, has given the wind industry a one year extension on its present tax rules, it's time to take a sober look at the real economics behind the struggle between future energy -- wind, solar, efficiency, geothermal -- and fossil fuels. During the fight over whether to increase taxes on the wind industry -- ironically led by anti-business tax Republicans -- the real issue was made crystal clear. In a letter to Congress, a group of fossil fuel supported lobbying groups, led by the American Energy Alliance and the Competitive Enterprise Institute, argued that the current tax structure for wind and solar had "already negatively impacted electricity reliability, because the artificial price structure created by the PTC encourages the development of uneconomic wind while undermining the economics of reliable, full time generation such as coal and nuclear." There it is. Coal and nuclear are reliable -- wind and solar are not. C ...

Carl Pope: Takers and Makers in the Rain Forest
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Can a tree tell the story of some forms of capitalism better than an economics lecture? Perhaps. The most striking image of my first rain-forest excursion here is of a majestic, competitive, powerful survivor -- a 100-foot high ficus aureus, or golden fig like the one shown here: This tree is a classic rainforest success story -- it has figured out a way to get up high, where there is light enough for survival, without having to invest its energy in a slow growing, dense trunk to painfully lift itself up to the heights -- the strategy used by the tamarind, which can take five times as long as aureus to reach the forest canopy where the light is strongest. But the golden fig raises some interesting questions about takers and makers. Here's an image of the tree I saw -- taken from inside it and looking skyward -- it's hollow. Why? Because ficus aureus is more commonly known as "the strangler fig" - the terror of the rainforest. Its seed lands and plants i ...

Justin Guay: Energy's Presence, Not Price, Changes Lives
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Co-Authored by Carl Pope and Jigar Shah The Sustainable Energy for All initiative has rightfully united the world's attention on a critical development issue -- delivering universal energy access. But whether it's grid extension, distributed clean energy, or a combination of both that ultimately ends the darkness that traps the rural world one thing is clear -- an obsessive focus on the price of the first kilowatt hour the poor receive, all but ensures the job will never get done. The biggest problem with a focus on the price per kilowatt hour is the failure to prioritize coverage, and speed. Today, it is clear that off grid clean energy is cheaper than subsidized diesel and kerosene even if it may not be as cheap as the subsidized grid electricity prices in India, Malawi, Haiti and other nations. But it is unconscionable for those without energy to be forced to continue to spend huge portions of their monthly income on dirty kerosene and diesel instead of cheaper an ...

Carl Pope: Sell Electric Cars Like Smartphones
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Three big barriers are slowing electric vehicles. One can be fixed by the auto industry tomorrow -- and if it is, the other two will melt away as the electric vehicle sector expands. Start with a simple but surprising fact: Right now, leasing a GM Volt for only two years costs you less than its gasoline counterpart, the Cruze. The Volt leases for $69 a month more than the Cruze, but saves $200 a month in fuel by operating most of the time on electricity. The $1800 higher down payment for leasing the Volt is paid off in 14 months -- you make money for the last 10 months of your lease! Almost no one knows this -- GM hasn't been shouting about it from the roof-tops. Clearly the company loses money leasing Volts at this price. Because most drivers don't lease, GM knows it won't, if it keeps the secret, sell more Volts at a loss than it wants too. But the choice of a below-cost lease as a way to build the market for the Volt -- along with the necessity of doing so stealth ...

Unleashed Dog Bites Kayaker and Other Issues at Agua Hedionda Lagoon
Carlsbad Patch - over 4 years
Aquatics manager Carl Pope said recent incidents like an unleashed dog biting a kayaker and the improper use of the slalom course at Agua Hendiona Lagoon, have made it clear that more needs to be done by the city and police. "These incidents wouldn't have happened if people had followed the current California laws, and state and city codes, which are in place to ensure the public's safety," he said.  Pope said the Carlsbad Police Department's community service patrol, which enforces the lagoon's rules and regulations, is making more frequent patrols to educate users as well as to cite those in violation. In addition, he said new brochures that highlight important safety information will be available throughout the lagoon at privately owned and operated businesses, like California Water Sports and the Carlsbad Sup Club, as well as at two locations on Bay Shore Drive. "We want to make it as easy as possible for people to learn how to use the lagoon safely," Pope said. Pope said the mo ...
