ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Nearly two tons of trinkets, statues and jewelry crafted from the tusks of at least 100 slaughtered elephants are heading for a rock crusher in New York City's Central Park to demonstrate the state's commitment to smashing the illegal ivory trade.[...] state environmental officials, who are partnering with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Tiffany & Co. for Thursday's "Ivory Crush," say no price justifies slaughtering elephants for their tusks.Last year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service instituted a near-total ban on the domestic commercial ivory trade and barred sales across state lines.Since August 2014, New York law has prohibited the sale, purchase, trade or distribution of anything made from elephant or mammoth ivory or rhinoceros horn, except in limited situations with state approval.The World Wildlife Fund says the illegal wildlife trade not only threatens animal populations, but also endangers national security by funding terrorist cells.

- Cap-and-trade survives razor-thin California Senate vote
By David R. Baker - Monday Jul 17, 2017
California’s cap-and-trade system to fight climate change survived a make-or-break vote in the state senate Monday when more than two-thirds of senators voted to extend the program through 2030. Democrats, who control both chambers, cast the bill as vital to California’s leadership on global warming policy, even though many of their own environmental allies criticized its details. Cap and trade sets an annual limit on California’s greenhouse gas emissions and forces companies to buy a permit, called an allowance, for every metric ton of gas they emit. First used in the 1990s to control sulfur dioxide and acid rain, cap and trade gives companies flexibility in how, where and when they cut emissions. [...] they want tighter control of emissions from individual factories and refineries, in the hopes that forcing each facility to cut greenhouse gases will reduce other, harmful air pollutants as well. The move — a bid to win support from the oil industry and its legislative allies — infuriated environmental justice advocates, who waged a week-long lobbying campaign to kill the bill. The Bay Area Air Quality Management District, whose directors had been poised to vote on greenhouse gas limits for refineries, complained that Brown had undercut its authority.

- Trump seeks consensus with France despite differences
By VIVIAN SALAMA, Associated Press - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
PARIS (AP) — President Donald Trump and his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, are looking to set aside differences on trade and climate change and find common ground as they meet Thursday ahead of Bastille Day celebrations in Paris.Trump arrived in the French capital after an overnight flight from Washington and hours before his meeting with Macron to tackle potential solutions to the crisis in Syria and broader counterterrorism strategies.Macron, a staunch advocate of research to combat global warming, has beckoned "all responsible citizens," including American scientists and researchers, to bring their fight against climate change to France.The leaders plan to hold a news conference after their talks, and Trump may face tough questions about emails revealing that his eldest son welcomed the prospect of receiving Russian government support in last year's presidential campaign against Hillary Clinton.Macron supports intervention against Syria's government in response to its use of chemical weapons and could prove an important ally as the Trump administration seeks to increase pressure against Assad.

ALBANY, N.Y.
