Naomi Klein: Obama Is Beginning to Sound Like a Climate Leader; When Will He Act Like One? 4.8.2015 Truthout - All Articles
As scientists warn 2015 is on pace to become the Earth's hottest year on record, President Obama has unveiled his long-awaited plan to slash carbon emissions from U.S. power plants. Under new Environmental Protection Agency regulations, U.S. power plants will be required to cut emissions by 32 percent from 2005 levels by 2030. In addition, new power plants will be required to be far cleaner, which could effectively prevent any new coal plants from opening. But does the plan go far enough? We speak to Naomi Klein, author of the best-selling book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, which is out in paperback today. TRANSCRIPT: NERMEEN SHAIKH: As scientists warn 2015 is on pace to become the Earth's hottest year on record, President Obama has unveiled his long-awaited plan to slash carbon emissions from U.S. power plants. During a speech at the White House, Obama said no challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than a changing climate. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Climate change is ...

Oklahoma regulators impose water injection cut to stem earthquakes 4.8.2015 World
Oklahoma regulators are imposing new restrictions on energy companies injecting wastewater underground, in the latest effort to stem a sharp increase in earthquakes. The new rules, announced by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission on Monday evening, require operators in parts of two Oklahoma counties to reduce the amount of saltwater they inject underground by 38 percent from current levels in the next 60 days. The reduction will bring injected volumes to about 2.4 million barrels below those in 2012, when the most dramatic spike in the area earthquakes began.

Sargent: Morning Plum: Get ready for another ideological death struggle, this time over climate 3.8.2015 Washington Post
Today, President Obama will roll out the final version of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, an ambitious effort to reduce carbon emissions from power plants by nearly one-third from 2005 levels by 2030. This seems likely to set in motion an ideological death struggle that will rival the one over Obamacare — but with arguably even higher stakes.Read full article ...

Some 'heavenly' and 'hellish' psychology studies you may (or may not) wish you had participated in 3.8.2015 MinnPost
Research Digest , the British Psychology Society ’s always interesting blog on the latest research involving brain and behavior, ran an article over the weekend on 10 psychology studies that “you’ll wish you’d participated in.” “We searched the annals of psychology for studies that sounded simply heavenly, from swimming with dolphins to receiving a free back massages!” writes psychologist and journalist Christian Jarrett . Jarrett’s summaries of the studies make fun reading, but what I also found interesting were the studies’ results. Several had fairly predictable findings. For example, employees who received free massages at their workplace reported less anxiety and tension. And heart-surgery patients who were prayed for by 12 religious congregations fared no better after their operations than those who weren't at the receiving end of those devout appeals. No real surprises there. But the results of some of the other studies — including the one involving swimming with dolphins — were a bit more ...

Scrambling Tiger makes strides with solid week 3.8.2015 Sports
Tiger Woods, trying to recapture the form that won 14 major titles, says he made "big strides" in reviving his game at the PGA Quicken Loans National despite a failed Sunday charge. Tournament host Woods birdied five of the first 10 holes, including a 42-foot birdie putt at the par-3 ninth, but then made bogeys on three of the next four holes. The 39-year-old American answered with an eight-foot birdie putt at 17 but settled for a three-under par 68 final round to finish on eight-under 276 -- his lowest 72-hole score in relation to par at a PGA event since the 2013 BMW ...

Rural Challenges, Real Solutions 2.8.2015 Truthout.com
The ongoing paucity of public and private investment in the rural South has caused outsized harm to African-American women and girls. In a study published this week titled " Unequal Lives: The State of Black Women and Families in the Rural South ," the Southern Rural Black Women's Initiative (SRBWI) found "on nearly every social indicator of well-being - from income and earnings to obesity and food security - Black women, girls and children in the rural South rank low or last." According to the survey, the unemployment rate for African-American women is four times that of white women in the same counties, and the poverty rate for African Americans and Latinos is more than double that of whites. SRBWI was formed by nonprofit leaders from Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia to pursue solutions to poverty and injustice in some of America's poorest counties. One of its founders says the Initiative helps women leverage their existing skills and resources. "We work with farmers and try to get women to produce ...
