2017: What Next for Green Finance? 16.1.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
2016 is on course to be not just the hottest on record, but also probably the dirtiest and most hazardous too. " The climate has broken records in 2016 " says World Meteorological Organization chief Petteri Taalas. Smog once again returned to haunt many of the world's cities notably in China, Europe and India - with the primary cause the same as climate change: the burning of fossil fuels. Worldwide, around 18,000 people now die every day as a result of air pollution . Some 26 million people are also forced into poverty each year by the impact of natural disasters , with climate shocks reversing hard-won development gains. The year of green finance Yet before you get too downhearted, we need to celebrate the fact that 2016 was also the best year ever for green finance . Simply put, green finance covers the financing of investments that generate environmental benefits as part of the broader strategy to achieve inclusive, resilient and sustainable development. In 2016, G20 heads of state for the first time ...

Teaming Up For Youth Homelessness In Seattle 30.12.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
It felt exhilarating to be at Century Link Field in downtown Seattle on Christmas Eve. I was up high in the press box with a birds-eye view of the players, surrounded by roughly 70,000 blue, white and green fans who are known for their ability to cause tiny earthquakes in support of their team. I was there to write about The Paul G. Allen Foundation and the Seattle Seahawks teaming up to support Cocoon House, a local non-profit serving at-risk and homeless youth and their families in Snohomish County. Through the month of December, every dollar donated to Cocoon House will be matched by Paul Allen. http://www.cocoonhouse.org/home It is estimated that 35,000 kids and teens are homeless around Washington State. 34% of homeless people in Washington state are under 24 years old. Data suggests that homeless kids are five times more likely to become homeless as ...

Rams ramp up coaching search, but Pete Carroll doesn't want to be on their list of candidates 14.12.2016 LA Times: Commentary

Pete Carroll will be on the opposite sideline Thursday night when the Rams play the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Stadium in Seattle.

And despite the wishes of many Rams fans — and perhaps some in the team’s executive suite — he almost certainly won’t be changing sides anytime soon.

It Was a Blighted City Block. But This Woman Is Turning It Into a Solar-Powered Ecovillage 13.12.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Shamayim Harris ran three times for city council in her hometown of Highland Park, Michigan. Each time the voters rejected her. "They didn't want me," she says, with a smile. But that didn't stop her from fulfilling her plans to give Highland Park residents new opportunities, starting with her own block on Avalon Street. The city of Highland Park is in the middle of the much larger city of Detroit, and could easily be mistaken for another of its neglected neighborhoods. Highland Park has been without a library for 14 years. Its high school was permanently closed by the state last year, leaving just one school, a K–8 program, within its borders. In 2011, utility company DTE Energy removed all the street lights; local and national headlines read some variation of " Highland Park goes dark: City removes lights to pay bills ." The city has struggled financially for over a decade, and was one of several financially challenged local units of government in Michigan where Gov. Rick Snyder took control of ...

Love Trumps Hate For Over 50 Years 16.11.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
This week, I've been thinking a lot about the concept of "Love Trumps Hate." And that means, as it so often does when I'm thinking about love, that I've been thinking about my parents. Nowadays, when I think of my parents and their enduring love - they met in high school and recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary - I think, too, of my attempt at enduring love that didn't work out (I refuse to use the word "failed") and why I hope that in that reality, too, love will eventually trump hate. But let's start with my parents. They grew up in the South. In the 1940s and 1950s. They went to college in the 1960s. By the time they got married, I was born, and my dad started law school, the free love movement - and the drugs and hippies and dropping out that went along with it - was well underway. My parents didn't use drugs. They weren't hippies - they were probably what many would have called "straight-laced." They didn't drop out. In so many ways, they followed the traditional life path of getting ...

Pay To Play In Seattle's Suburbs 16.11.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
This past August with the silent efficiency of a sharpened guillotine, 28 eviction notices were placed on the doors of Renton Woods apartment home residents, most of whom were single, black women with children. On the surface, the Renton Woods apartments in Renton, Washington, (suburb of Seattle), is the kind of sprawling A-Z, non-descript, passive taupe with burgundy accent, complexes that commuters drive by without a glance. A sad irony in the Pacific Northwest these days, is that these types of large apartment complexes represent a dwindling resource: safe harbor for low income citizens in a tight Seattle housing market. Every January an organized homeless count occurs and this year 160 people were tallied living on the streets of Renton, a sharp increase from the previous year, but a far cry from the thousands living homeless in Seattle. And that change in Renton in large part is due to a lack of affordable housing. The tech boom in Seattle is blowing back to the surburbs...which is a good thing, if ...
