BlueGreen Alliance opposes Chemicals in Commerce Act http://www.bluegreenalliance.org/news/publications/bluegreen-alliance-opposes-chemicals-in-commerce-act Wed, 05 Mar 2014 09:17:11 -0500 http://www.bluegreenalliance.org/news/publications/bluegreen-alliance-opposes-chemicals-in-commerce-act The BlueGreen Alliance writes members of Congress in opposition to the release of the House discussion draft titled the 'Chemicals in Commerce Act.' For the reasons stated in the attached letter, this draft does not accomplish the much needed, and long overdue, reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 (TSCA). Rather than a step forward, this draft would represent an erosion of even those thin protections still offered by TSCA, effectively making it a step backward.

Repair Minnesota: Creating Good Jobs While Preparing Our Systems for Climate Change http://www.bluegreenalliance.org/news/publications/repair-minnesota Wed, 11 Dec 2013 07:52:00 -0500 http://www.bluegreenalliance.org/news/publications/repair-minnesota Minnesota’s infrastructure systems are in urgent need of significant repair. Our state’s roads and bridges, water, waste water, transit, energy, and communication systems need increased investment to become efficient, safe, and productive for Minnesotans. Repairing Minnesota will create good jobs, make our systems more efficient and less polluting, and safeguard communities from the impact of climate change, like severe weather such as floods and droughts.  

In this report, the BlueGreen Alliance identified needed investments—some of which is already in the planning stages—in roads and bridges, transit, waste water, drinking water, electricity, natural gas and smart grid. After identifying these needs, we estimated the number of jobs that would be created by making these essential investments in repairing and modernizing our basic infrastructure systems. 

An estimated 114,000 jobs a year could be created and sustained across the Minnesota economy by making much-­needed investments in our basic infrastructure systems. This includes the number of direct jobs from impacted sectors like construction laborers, equipment operators, and maintenance workers; as well as the number of indirect jobs from industries that service those sectors and supply chains, including the manufacturing of materials, components, and equipment. In addition, we estimated the number of induced jobs supported as the workers buy goods and services, including increased demand for retail, housing, and financial services.

The report, The Green Industrial Revolution and the United States: In the Clean Energy Race, Is the United States a Leader or a Luddite?, proposes maximizing the national strength of U.S. manufacturing by employing a region focused strategy for clean energy manufacturing.

The report focuses on the new green industrial revolution—driven by a variety of concerns and opportunities—that is gathering steam across the globe. In some regions, it is spurred by land and water scarcity. In others, it is driven by rising concerns about catastrophic climate change. And in even more regions, new energy technology and financial innovations have opened up exciting industrial and economic possibilities. Whatever the cause of this transformation, at its center is a new approach to energy characterized by an increasing commitment to renewable energy, energy conservation and efficiency, and a 21st-century approach of generating and moving fuels and electricity that recognizes—not denies—our climate and natural resource challenges.

Position Statement: Laying the Foundation for a Global Agreement http://www.bluegreenalliance.org/news/publications/position-statement Mon, 18 Nov 2013 23:58:00 -0500 http://www.bluegreenalliance.org/news/publications/position-statement Both the scientific community and nature itself have demonstrated that climate change is real and its impacts are increasingly devastating. According to the most recent findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), humans are overwhelmingly the cause of this change; we therefore must also be the solution. But every year that we wait to find solutions translates into compounding damage to our economic, health, environmental and societal well-being. Unfortunately, reality has shown repeatedly that early scientific estimates have understated the effects of climate change. 

The annual Conference of the Parties (COP) presents an opportunity for the international community to collectively discuss and address the global threat of climate change. Unfortunately, it is also a space that has increasingly garnered criticism and doubt. But that doesn’t have to be the case. As the 2015 target date for a new international agreement approaches, COP 19 can and must be used as an opportunity to strengthen the individual commitments of the Parties, and through those commitments, accelerate achievement of the emissions reductions trajectory that aligns with the recommendations of the global scientific community and aims to close the mitigation gap.

Washington, DC 20510 

Dear Senators, Alexander, Feinstein, Murkowski, and Wyden, 

As you work to develop legislation addressing longstanding challenges of storage and disposal of our country’s current 70,000 metric tons of commercial spent nuclear fuel, a radioactive waste inventory projected to more than double by 2035, we strongly urge you to consider the potential benefits of increased public safety, domestic manufacturing and domestic job creation that can come from improving current spent fuel management policy; specifically legislating the thinning out of over-crowded cooling pools and the ramping-up of more dry cask storage.  Failure to incorporate this important issue into national nuclear waste legislation would be a missed opportunity to increase public confidence in the safety of domestic nuclear power operations as well as create new markets around US-manufactured technology, putting more Americans back to work.    

The challenges of crafting a workable framework for long-term management of the back end of the nuclear fuel cycle are formidable, especially when one considers the substantial amount of time it will take to implement and actualize a process for permanently disposing of this waste or initially consolidating and storing it at specific interim sites prior to permanent geologic disposal.  The fact is that large quantities of spent fuel will remain at reactor sites for many years to come.  While the radiation levels in recently-discharged nuclear fuel must be allowed to decrease to a level where the fuel can be stored in dry casks, the industry standard practice of using cooling pools for long-term storage—and filling pools to capacity using high-density storage racks—increases risks to safety and security in nuclear operations.

We believe that addressing this problem creates a unique opportunity to ramp up domestic manufacturing of safer, less vulnerable dry storage casks, potentially creating thousands of quality jobs.  Furthermore, accelerating the transfer of fuel from over-crowded pools to dry casks is a necessary step in the process of any plan to ship spent fuel to an interim centralized storage site or geologic repository. 

Americans deserve real safety improvements in spent fuel management, and these improvements are good for the long-term security of the industry, their workers, and the public.  Congress cannot adequately provide real solutions to our waste storage problem without improving current spent fuel management practices, and there is little to no public safety benefit from legislating a process to move spent fuel off site without a linkage to thinning out over-crowded cooling pools.         

We recognize your leadership on this very important and challenging issue, and hope that you will seize this opportunity to improve public safety and security while putting Americans to work by acknowledging the need to use more dry cask storage, and helping to facilitate increased domestic manufacturing of this important technology. On behalf of our millions of members and supporters, we ask that you include language or provisions that would accelerate the transfer of spent fuel from cooling pools to dry storage casks in the national nuclear waste legislation you are developing. 

Sincerely, 

David A. Foster

The implementation costs of the Tier 3 program will be greatly offset by savings in health costs alone, in addition to improving quality of life for all Americans. Also, since pollution reduction is strongly tied to fuel efficiency, in addition to direct benefits to public health, these efforts will assist in the mitigation of greenhouse gases that are causing climate change.

Dear Senators: 

As a coalition of ten labor unions and four environmental groups, the BlueGreen Alliance (BGA) writes today to thank and commend you for your ongoing leadership in the effort to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).  We support your newly introduced legislation, the Safe Chemicals Act of 2013, and recognize the many years of work which have gone into its creation. 

Unchanged since its creation in 1976, TSCA now lags far behind progressive policies found in other regions, such as the European Union, and fails to address the significant costs associated with hazardous chemicals that are being imposed on downstream users.  Consumers and workers too often have inadequate information regarding chemical products, limiting their ability to make informed decisions.  The current regulatory regime hamstrings innovation in favor of using existing chemicals rather than seeking safer alternatives. 

As our organization participated in the extensive stakeholder dialogue process which you spearheaded to work toward consensus around TSCA reform, we also appreciate the considerable effort at alliance building which underlies the form and content of this bill.  Representing the interests of millions of workers and environmentalists, we particularly applaud the most important provisions of this legislation: 

  • Use of a health-based standard to assess chemical safety and explicitly require protection of the most vulnerable populations, including children, workers, minority communities and low-income groups;
  • Prohibition against the introduction of new chemicals without a finding that the substance meets the applicable safety standard and is not a known or suspected reproductive, developmental, neurological, or immunological toxicant, carcinogen, mutagen, or endocrine disruptor;
  • Directing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to prioritize those chemicals of particular hazard to the public for immediate risk management;
  • Requiring chemical manufacturers to bear the burden of proving that chemical substances meet applicable safety standards;
  • Ensuring that workers, communities, and the public have a right to know information regarding their chemical exposure;
  • Requiring federal agency coordination to avoid overlapping responsibilities for protecting Americans’ occupational and environmental health;
  • Providing federal support for basic and applied research, and incentives for the production of safer alternatives to hazardous substances currently in use. 

The chemical industry is a crucial segment of our national economy, directly or indirectly employing over four millions Americans.  Building on this foundation, your effort to modernize our national chemical regulation policy will revitalize the sector by incentivizing the development and manufacture of new, safer chemicals.  

By placing the burden of demonstrating chemical safety on industry, rather than the EPA, your legislation will jump-start innovation, igniting a new ‘race to the top’ as chemical manufacturers compete freely to develop consumer, worker, and environment friendly new substances.  Far from endangering American jobs, this policy shift will spur the creation of the type of new, middle-class supporting jobs so vital to our nation’s economic well-being. 

In seeking to protect human health through effective government policy, your leadership has created a roadmap to a greener, healthier future for all Americans.  We support your work on this critical endeavor and will continue doing our part to help ensure success moving forward.

 

Sincerely, 

David A. Foster

Yet, the economic downturn and years of shifting production took a significant toll on U.S. manufacturers and their workers. An estimated 5.5 million manufacturing jobs were lost over the last decade. America has begun to change this, adding back more than 500,000 manufacturing jobs since the beginning of 2010, but much more needs to be done to bring these jobs back and ensure that American manufacturing — and the steel industry in particular — are drivers of America’s 21st century clean economy.
