Blueprint for a Progressive US: A Dialogue With Noam Chomsky and Robert Pollin 17.10.2017 Truthout.com
(Photo: Bianca Pontes / EyeEm) Expanding educational opportunities and building a green economy -- while shrinking both the military and the fossil fuel industry -- are the best routes to full employment, say world-renowned public intellectuals Noam Chomsky and Robert Pollin.

Hurricane Victims Don't Have the "Complexion for Protection" 17.10.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Millions of Puerto Ricans are still without water, food, electricity and shelter, four weeks after Hurricane Maria destroyed the island.  With waterborne illnesses on the rise, a full-blown humanitarian crisis is on the horizon. "Raw sewage continues to be released into waterways and is expected to continue until repairs can be made and power is restored," the EPA warns in a memo. When the  agency issued this statement , eighty-four percent of Puerto Rico was without electricity, and sixty percent of water treatment plants out of service. "Water contaminated with livestock waste, human sewage, chemicals, and other contaminants can lead to illness when used for drinking, bathing, and other hygiene activities," the EPA says. To make matters worse, Puerto Rico is home to 21 Superfund sites -- the nation's most deadly depositories of toxic chemicals. The island also has a five-story-high coal ash dump in Guayama that was hit by the storm. Floodwaters have already mixed deadly toxins from these sites into ...

Why Rick Perry's Proposed Subsidies for Coal Fail Economics 101 15.10.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Where do you turn for news and analysis you can rely on? If the answer is Truthout, then please support our mission by making a tax-deductible donation! In a controversial proposal, Energy Secretary Rick Perry has asked federal regulators to effectively subsidize coal and nuclear power plants at ratepayers' expense. Under Perry's  proposal , plants that operate in deregulated electricity markets -- where generators normally compete to provide power at the lowest cost -- would be guaranteed positive profits so long as they stockpile 90 days' worth of fuel on site.  To rationalize this proposal, which a former Republican member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has dubbed " the antithesis of good economics ," Secretary Perry points to uncompensated benefits generated by coal and nuclear plants. As energy economists, when we think about coal-fired electricity generation, what usually comes to mind are unaccounted-for costs -- not benefits. This emerging pro-coal narrative is worth ...
