  • Climate Change: Current Policy Landscape and Implications for U.S. Industry

    1. 1. April 20 th , 3:30-5:00 2009 MEP National Conference Climate Change: Current Policy Landscape and Implications for U.S. Industry Speakers: Tom Olson, Environmental Defense Fund Bob Baugh, AFL-CIO Industrial Union Department
    2. 2. Climate Change ……….. <ul><li>What it’s about…. </li></ul><ul><li>How we can fix it……. </li></ul><ul><li>And how it creates </li></ul><ul><li>business opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>for U.S. manufacturers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tom Olson, Environmental Defense Fund </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MEP Conference, Orlando, Florida – April 20, 2009 </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. Why we need to act on climate change…..a very short course Climate Change 101
    4. 6. Emissions this decade have been worse than the “worst case” imagined in 2000
    5. 7. Absent strong action, the U.S. will be dramatically hotter within your lifetime <ul><li>In south Florida in the 2030s, almost every year will be as hot as, or hotter than, the hottest year of the second half of the 20 th Century. </li></ul><ul><li>Almost everywhere in the US, these scorching years will become at least 15 times more frequent in the next few decades. </li></ul>
    6. 9. So what are lawmakers trying to do to protect us? <ul><li>Put a national cap on greenhouse gases (Waxman-Markey bill in the House – first votes next week) </li></ul><ul><li>Put regional caps on GHGs (already in place in New England and some western states) </li></ul><ul><li>Require utilities to rely more on wind, solar, and other renewable sources of power (Waxman-Markey bill, Bingaman bill) </li></ul><ul><li>Direct stimulus funding to renewable energy, energy efficiency, and expansion of the national electric grid </li></ul><ul><li>Fund R&D on ways to capture carbon dioxide from power plants and store it underground (various bills) </li></ul>
    7. 10. The common theme of all these policies…. <ul><li>Reducing greenhouse gas pollution by… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Encouraging more energy production from sources that emit little or no GHG pollution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reducing energy use through energy efficiency </li></ul></ul>
    8. 11. President Obama – 4/18/09 <ul><li>“ The only way to truly spark the transformation to a clean energy economy is through a gradual, market-based cap on carbon pollution, so that clean energy is the profitable kind of energy. …. If businesses know today that we are closing this carbon pollution loophole, they will start investing in clean energy now …. That’s how we can grow this economy, enhance our security, and protect our planet at the same time.” </li></ul>
    9. 12. What does this mean for manufacturers? <ul><li>http://info.ems-rfid.com/opencms/system/modules/com.szinf.ems/resources/images/manufacturing3http://info.ems-rfid.com/opencms/system/modules/com.szinf.ems/resources/images/manufacturing3.JPG.JPG </li></ul>
    10. 13. Traditional MEP focus: Lean Manufacturing <ul><li>Helping companies become more competitive by reducing energy use (and energy bills) in a carbon-constrained world </li></ul><ul><ul><li>EXAMPLE: any business that uses large amounts of hot water can save money with a new-generation condensing hot water heater </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EXAMPLE: any company with a large roof may be able to lease its roof space to a company that will install solar panels for free </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EXAMPLE: any company that owns its own building may be able to contract with an ESCO to reduce energy expenses while saving money </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Great resource for energy efficiency: www.aceee.org </li></ul>
    11. 14. Traditional MEP focus: Lean Manufacturing <ul><li>Helping companies meet the demands of suppliers (like Wal-Mart, Toyota, Boeing) that require vendors to meet tough environmental standards </li></ul>
