- Q&A: California looks to keep landmark climate policy alive
By JONATHAN J. COOPER, Associated Press - Wednesday Jul 12, 2017
The cap-and-trade program has been closely watched around the world as a market-based way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but it expires in 2020.The program was devised as a "market based" solution to global warming, putting a price on carbon to create an incentive for polluters to reduce their emissions and save money.Auctioning allowances has raised billions of dollars for programs that address climate change, like electric-vehicle incentives and mass transit development.The nonpartisan Legislative Analyst's Office estimated last year that the cap-and-trade has increased gasoline prices by about 11 cents per gallon and diesel prices by 13 cents.Cap-and-trade proponents say it's an economically flexible way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming.Brown, a Democrat who has stoked a global reputation as a climate leader, badly wants lawmakers to extend the program before he leaves office following next year's election.California lawmakers last year approved an ambitious goal to reduce carbon emissions 40 percent below their 1990 level by 2030 and gave the California Air Resources Board broad authority to achieve the goal.[...] local environmentalists, particularly environmental justice groups that work in neighborhoods around pollution sources like oil refineries and ports, have blasted the proposal.Environmental justice advocates have long been skeptical of cap and trade, which they say saddles low-income neighborhoods with toxic air.

- The Latest: Maersk's terminals still crippled in cyberattack
Wednesday Jun 28, 2017
An official with the Alabama State Port Authority, James K. Lyons, says crews at the Maersk's APM terminal in Mobile, Alabama, have been loading and unloading containers in manual mode, without the normal computerized coordination.Logistics firm FedEx says deliveries by its TNT Express subsidiary have been slowed by the global cyberattack, another sign of how major companies are struggling to deal with the fallout from an especially virulent outbreak of data-scrambling software.FedEx said that the domestic, regional and intercontinental operations of TNT Express, a courier delivery unit, were "largely operational, but slowed."More than 24 hours after a new form of malicious software caused widespread disruption in Ukraine and grabbed headlines around the world, the hackers have nearly gathered 4 bitcoin, worth just over $10,000 at current prices, according to the attackers' publicly available bitcoin wallet.Speaking at the headquarters of the Russian foreign intelligence agency SVR, Putin said in comments carried by Russian news agencies on Wednesday that Russia is "witnessing a hike in activities by foreign intelligence agencies aimed against Russia and its allies."The day after a particularly virulent strain of ransomware burst across the globe, the mysterious Shadow Brokers group has re-emerged to taunt the U.S. National Security Agency.The Shadow Brokers, who have spent nearly a year publishing some of the American intelligence community's most closely guarded secrets, posted a new message to the user-driven news service Steemit on Wednesday carrying new threats, a new money-making scheme and nudge-nudge references to the ransomware explosion that continues to cause disruption from Pennsylvania to Tasmania."Another global cyber attack is fitting end for first month of theshadowbrokers dump service," the group said, referring to a subscription service which purportedly offers hackers early access to some of the digital NSA's break-in tools.The ransomware that paralyzed computers across the world hit Ukraine hardest Tuesday, with victims including top-level government offices, energy companies, banks, cash machines, gas stations, and supermarkets.Russia's Rosneft oil company says some of its gas stations have been affected by the outbreak of malicious software, but production operations haven't been hurt.Ukraine and Russia appeared hardest hit by Tuesday's violent outbreak of data-scrambling software that locks up computer files with all-but-unbreakable encryption and then demands a ransom for its release.In a statement, the Denmark-based group acknowledged that its APM Terminals had been "impacted in a number of ports" and that an undisclosed number of systems were shut down "to contain the issue."The Chinese internet regulator and police ministry did not respond to questions about how many computers were affected or how authorities were responding.In a statement, Maersk said Wednesday they "have shut down a number of systems to help contain the issue," while several entities including its oil, tankers and drilling activities "are not operationally affected."The group said it is working on a technical recovery plan with key IT partners and global cybersecurity agencies, and is continuing to assess and manage the situation "to minimize the impact on our operations, customers and partners from the current situation."Australia's Cyber Security Minister, Dan Tehan, told reporters on Wednesday that officials have yet to confirm that the Australian companies were hit by the same strain of ransomware that has struck hospitals, government offices and corporations across the world.A highly virulent strain of malicious software that is crippling computers globally appears to have been sown in Ukraine, where it badly hobbled much of the government and private sector on the eve of a holiday celebrating a post-Soviet constitution.Hospitals, government offices and major multinationals were among the casualties of the ransomware payload, which locks up computer files with all-but-unbreakable encryption and then demands a ransom for its release.
