    warming exists and the United States isn t likely to take meaningful climate action anytime soon That means it s up to localities to take the lead states in a general sense but really cities themselves when it comes to the details To better understand the motivation for local action UCLA urban planner Rui Wang has been studying how cities go about taking action on climate change Wang recently reviewed California planning surveys to determine climate actions taken in 2008 and 2009 by the state s 480 cities In an upcoming issue of Urban Affairs Review Wang reports that cities tend to adopt climate change policies in increments pushing simple policies first then in some cases working toward more challenging ones Read the rest of Eric Jaffe s post Nancy Anderson s Comment When it comes to taking the lead on climate action much here depends on what gets called easy Making urban buildings a lot more energy efficient may be easy in Wang s estimation but I would call it tough although entirely necessary Cities can pass laws but most buildings are privately owned and getting them to spend money on energy efficiency upgrades staff occupant training and then

    York NY A One of the biggest differences between Forest Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forestry Initiative is that FSC requires third party certification while SFI does not so if a forestry company chooses to lie about its forest practices but sell its wood with an SFI stamp no one would actually know Because eco labeled wood is more valuable the incentive is there for forest companies to do exactly this even President Reagan said trust but verify Another big problem is that SFI has less stringent standards for protecting overall forest ecosystem health for instance clear cut logging can be allowed under SFI But what gets me angriest is that SFI is a program created by the timber industry specifically to compete with the FSC standard in order to muddy the water for consumers and greenwash bad corporate behavior The folks who drew up SFI could have spent their time working to comply with FSC and protect forests but instead they chose to intentionally generate disinformation They are wasting even their own time and yet they ask us to believe they stand for conservation ADPSR awarded our 2005 Lewis Mumford Award for the Environment Mumford was a famous planner to
