Ramping up the green industrial wave Corporate Knights

"...The high energy intensity combined with the reliance on combustion-based production technologies makes the heavy industries among the most greenhouse gas intensive, as measured by tonnes of greenhouse gas per dollar of GDP. The relatively large contribution of fuel and electricity to the total cost of production in these industries provides a strong incentive to improve technological energy efficiency, to look for process innovations that require less energy, and to pursue production strategies that increase the economic value created for every unit of fuel burned. Notwithstanding the slow growth in the heavy industry sector, greenhouse gas intensities have been stable or declining in the cement, chemicals and non-ferrous metals industries..."

States of Emergency: Climate Change Risks to U.S. Military Installations in 2021 

"...On January 5, the Washington Post published an analysis of climate change-related emergencies in 2021 and concluded that more than 40 percent of Americans live in counties that were covered by federal disaster declarations in the past year. The devastating effects of the severe storms, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, and droughts identified in the analysis pose a range of security risks to the US homeland, including direct loss of life (more than 650 people died from these disasters according to the Post), economic harm (NOAA estimates 20 separate “billion dollar” disasters in the US in 2021), and critical infrastructure damage. These climate-driven shocks also undermine long-term US resilience and compound other risks such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic..."
