WASTE WARS: BRONX EDITION - POLITICO New York's David Giambusso and Brendan Cheney: A controversial bill to distribute waste more evenly to transfer stations across the city is losing support, and is now well short of the number of sponsors needed to guarantee passage in the City Council. The defections from Intro. 495 are not necessarily because of changes to the language or adjustments in policy. Rather, they are the result of a successful lobbying effort on the part of transfer stations in the Bronx that stand to lose significant revenue if the bill is passed. ... One Bronx facility, Metropolitan, operates at close to maximum capacity, which is rare for a transfer station. Intro. 495, championed by Councilmen Antonio Reynoso and Stephen Levin of north Brooklyn, would reduce that capacity by roughly 50 percent. For Metropolitan, that represents a significant bite out of its business and its owners are actively lobbying against the bill. MirRam group, a powerful government relations firm in the Bronx, has also been retained by another Bronx company, Sanitation Salvage. According to corporate records, the owners of Sanitation Salvage hold a 36 percent stake in Metropolitan. MirRam has been paid $29,500 this year to lobby the Council, according to public records."

ICYMI: HIGH PEAK RESCUE - The Daily Gazette's Zachary Matson and Ned Campbell: "A Niskayuna man and woman were reunited with their families Tuesday night, after they survived two days stranded near the summit of New York's second-highest mountain."

GOOD THURSDAY MORNING: Let us know if you have tips, story ideas or life advice. We're always here at and And if you like this letter, please tell a friend and/or loved one. Here's a handy sign-up link:

CLIMATE DISCLOSURES - The New York Times' Hiroko Tabuchi: "A coalition of the world's most powerful bankers, regulators and even executives at some heavy polluters have a message for oil and gas companies: Be more forthcoming about the risks posed by climate change."

SOLAR'S GLOW UNDIMMED - The Washington Post's Chelsea Harvey: "The U.S. solar industry experienced its biggest boom yet this year, with a record-breaking 4,143 megawatts (or million watts) of solar generating capacity added in the third quarter of 2016, according to a new report."

TILLERSON'S REPLACEMENT - The Wall Street Journal's Anne Steele: "ExxonMobil Corp. said Darren Woods will succeed Rex Tillerson as chairman and chief executive of the company, after Mr. Tillerson was tapped by President-elect Donald Trump to serve as the next U.S. Secretary of State."

ENERGY EFFICIENCY RULES TARGETED - Bloomberg's Erik Wasson and Ari Natter: "House conservatives have a message for President-elect Donald Trump: use your first 100 days to scrap regulations on everything from catfish to ceiling fans to the Export-Import Bank. The House Freedom Caucus wish list, sent by chairman Mark Meadows to Trump's transition team, includes 228 federal regulations to examine or revoke."

--California has approved the first U.S. energy efficiency standards for computers.

FRACKING FOES TURN TO COURTS - Bloomberg's Alex Nussbaum: "Janet McIntyre has heard President-elect Donald Trump praise fracking and the jobs it's created. She's living the other side of the story. For six years, the western Pennsylvania woman and dozens of her neighbors have blamed their tainted groundwater - turned foamy, foul-smelling and undrinkable - on a drilling technique that slams sand, water and chemicals underground at high pressure to unlock oil and natural gas caught in the shale below. Now McIntyre and others on the front lines of the fracking debate are getting support from an Environmental Protection Agency report, released Tuesday, that says drilling can harm groundwater."

MALARIA KILLER - NPR's Rob Stein: "It's a cold, damp fall day in London. But in a windowless basement laboratory, it feels like the tropics. It's hot and humid. That's to keep the mosquitoes happy... The lab is buzzing with hundreds of mosquitoes. 'Everything in this cubicle is genetically modified,' Andrew Hammond, a genetic engineer at Imperial College London, says."

WIND RULE ALLOWS EAGLE DEATHS - The Associated Press: "The Obama administration on Wednesday finalized a rule that lets wind-energy companies operate high-speed turbines for up to 30 years - even if means killing or injuring thousands of federally protected bald and golden eagles."

PERRY IN HIS OWN WORDS: Bloomberg compiled would-be energy secretary Gov. Rick Perry's recent comments on energy policy.

TRUMP ADVISER: CLIMATE SCIENCE AKIN TO FLAT EARTH THEORY - The Washington Post's Chelsea Harvey: "An adviser on the Trump transition team turned heads Wednesday when he likened modern climate science to the ancient belief that the Earth was flat. 'I know that the current president believes that human beings are affecting the climate,' Anthony Scaramucci, a member of the president-elect's presidential transition team executive committee, said on CNN's 'New Day' program."

--Trump's transition team says the request for names of Department of Energy staff involved in crafting climate policy was unauthorized.

PARTING ADVICE - The Washington Post's Sarah Kaplan: "Researchers must 'fight disinformation' about science during the Trump administration, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said in an address before hundreds of scientists on Wednesday."

SCIENTISTS: THE ARCTIC IS UNRAVELING - InsideClimate News' Bob Berwyn: "The ill winds of climate change are irrevocably reshaping the Arctic, including massive declines in sea ice and snow and a record-late start to sea ice formation this fall. Those were the sobering conclusions of the 2016 Arctic Report Card released Tuesday."

VIDEO: DEFORESTATION DISCOVERY: The New York Times produced this short about the possible discovery of an ancient astronomical observatory found via widespread deforestation in the region.

NORWAY DROPS TAR SANDS - The Wall Street Journal's Chester Dawson: "Norway's state-owned oil giant, Statoil ASA, said Wednesday it is exiting its business in the Canadian oil sands, selling off its assets to Athabasca Oil Corp. and taking a loss of at least $500 million."


--Oil dropped Wednesday over fears about rising interest rates and continued skepticism about OPEC cuts, the Wall Street Journal reports.

--Natural gas was up because it's getting colder, the Journal reports.

** A message from Clean Energy Link - Powered by Invenergy: The largest renewable energy project ever proposed on Long Island, the Clean Energy Link is the quickest, most affordable path towards Governor Cuomo's 50 by 30 mandate. Consisting of four new wind and two new solar farms in four PJM states, the Clean Energy Link's portfolio has a generation capacity of over 700 MWs. Using sites totaling more than 55,000 acres spread across a geographically diverse area, the Clean Energy Link captures great economies of scale, brings Long Island a more consistent supply of green power than is currently available, and offers significant ratepayer value by delivering renewable energy at attractive prices. Operational by 2020, the Clean Energy Link is a win-win for Long Island: tripling renewables and preserving open space. LEARN MORE **
