Bouie: Things conservatives hate because liberals love them 24.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
By Jamelle Bouie Slate WASHINGTON — “Common Core,” the name for a set of national education standards, is the latest rallying cry for right-wing activists. Derided as “Obamacore,” it’s been attacked as a government attempt to usurp local curriculums and impose liberal values on conservative communities. Glenn Beck calls it a plot to turn children into “cogs” under a police state, and several Republican politicians have jumped on the bandwagon, denouncing the Obama administration for supporting...

Eskew: Kochs’ attacks on solar power could hurt GOP 24.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
By Carter Eskew Special to The Washington Post The Republican Party’s biggest sugar daddies, the Koch brothers, are a mixed bag for the GOP: They bring money but lots of baggage. Their downside isn’t only that they are a convenient foil for Democratic turnout but also that they could exacerbate tensions within the Republican Party. For years, the party has maintained an uneasy and unlikely alliance among big business, social conservatives and anti-government libertarians. If you looked at thes...

Hedge fund Greenlight Capital warns of tech stock bubble 24.4.2014 SFGate: Business & Technology
Greenlight Capital Inc., the $10.3 billion hedge fund firm run by David Einhorn, said it is betting against a group of technology stocks as evidence grows of a bubble. "There is a clear consensus that we are witnessing our second tech bubble in 15 years," the New York firm said in a letter to clients this week. "The current bubble is an echo of the previous tech bubble with fewer larger capitalization stocks and much less public enthusiasm." The Nasdaq composite index has slumped 4.4 percent since March 5, when it reached its highest level in almost 14 years. Stocks with the biggest gains last year led the retreat.

Letter: Rocky Mountain Power’s crazy talk 24.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Why does Rocky Mountain Power believe they can collect from customers that are not using their power source? If someone like Robert G. Nohavec (“Why penalize me?” April 21) has his own solar panels, at his own cost, which will reduce power outages and use the environment as a healthy resource, why should he have to pay RMP a levy fee of $4.25 a month? People who are trying to help the earth should be rewarded. Can anyone just levy a fee because they are losing money from people who aren’t cust...

This story originally appeared in the Guardian and is republished here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. Climate change is real and a real problem for the world, Apple said on Monday, announcing its progress on environment targets ahead of Earth Day.

We’re proud of our progress but we know we have much more to ...
