Holding Clinton’s Feet to the Fire On Climate 21.9.2016 Commondreams.org Views
Nick Cunningham

Recent difficulties aside, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the odds on favorite to win the presidency this year—and climate advocates are uneasy about what to expect.

She faced immense pressure from a remarkably successful campaign from Senator Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary, which pushed her to the left on an array of issues. She staked out seemingly aggressive positions on climate change, but often left wiggle room in her language, making her pledges far from assured.

The War Against the Assad Regime Is Not a "Pipeline War" 21.9.2016 Truthout - All Articles
The notion that the Obama administration supported the regime change war in Syria to protect plans for a natural gas pipeline is false and distracts attention from the central concern driving United States policy -- a desire to maintain key military facilities in the Middle East. Only if activists focus on that reality will they be able to unite effectively. Crude oil is refined into diesel and other products near al-Jawadiyah, Syria, on October 24, 2015. (Tyler Hicks / The New York Times) The reason put forward by the Obama administration for the war against the Bashar al-Assad regime -- saving the Syrian people from suffering and death at the hands of Assad -- has no credibility with anyone familiar with the record of US interventions for regime change around the world. As has been the case with all the other wars the US has fought over the decades, opponents of the US war state have had to come up with their own explanations for the sponsorship of a sectarian bloodbath in Syria. The explanation that ...

Bank Of America Touts Going Green But Funnels Billions Into Fossil Fuels 20.9.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
NEW YORK ― Bank of America said Monday it will power 100 percent of its operations with clean energy in the next four years, making it the latest big bank promising to aggressively shrink its carbon footprint. But until the country’s second-largest bank by assets stops funneling money to dirty fossil fuel projects, such commitments amount to little more than fig leaves at best, and manipulative “ greenwashing ” at worst, environmentalist groups said.  To pull it off its new commitment, Bank of America plans to cut back on electricity use and buy more renewable energy and carbon offsets, credits voluntarily purchased by companies to counterbalance pollution. As part of the announcement Monday, Bank of America also said it had joined the RE100, a coalition ― led by the nonprofit Climate Group ― of big corporations committed to becoming completely carbon neutral . “Addressing global issues like climate change and the transition to a sustainable and low-carbon future takes collaboration, innovation and ...
