Trump, Wherefore Art Thou? 7.12.2016 The Moderate Voice
abstract six line blue transparent vector

Donald Trump was elected American president on a surge of populism, promising to bring manufacturing jobs back, deport immigrants, build a wall at the nation’s southern border (which Mexico would pay for), and generally make things better for America’s workers and middle class. He also promised to drain the swamp of Washington insiders and lobbyists, [...]

Weather.Com Meteorologist To Breitbart: Quit Using Our Videos To Lie About Climate Change 7.12.2016 Crooks Liars
Weather.com meteorologist Kait Parker took a few minutes out of her usual duties to give Breitbart a message : Global warming is real and you shouldn't use Weather.com reports to lie to people. Global warming is not expected to end anytime soon, despite what Breitbart.com wrote in an article published last week . Though we would prefer to focus on our usual coverage of weather and climate science, in this case we felt it important to add our two cents — especially because a video clip from weather.com ( La Niña in Pacific Affects Weather in New England ) was prominently featured at the top of the Breitbart article. Breitbart had the legal right to use this clip as part of a content-sharing agreement with another company, but there should be no assumption that The Weather Company endorses the article associated with it. The Breitbart article – a prime example of cherry picking, or pulling a single item out of context to build a misleading case – includes this statement: "The last three years may ...

CBS: ‘Climate Change Denier’ Trump May Now Be ‘Thinking About the Issue’ 6.12.2016 NewsBusters
CBS This Morning’s Gayle King on Tuesday labeled Donald Trump a “climate change denier,” using the loaded term in a story on Al Gore visiting with the President-elect. All three networks promoted the global warming activist’s meeting, but it was co-host King who lectured, “President-elect Trump is on the record as a climate change denier. But a meeting with former Vice President Al Gore suggests that he's thinking about the ...

Pulling the Lever for Doomsday: How Donald Trump Changed Everything 6.12.2016 Truthout.com
Backlit by a spotlight, Donald Trump gestures as he speaks during a campaign event at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia, October 22, 2016. (Photo: Damon Winter / The New York Times) John Feffer's striking new dystopian novel Splinterlands is a look back at our world from the shattered Earth of 2050. Feffer's novel has come to read ever less like futuristic fiction and ever more like a vivid journalistic report on the latest developments in our distressed, Trumpian universe. With that in mind, we asked him today to return to the world of Splinterlands and launch the book at this website by offering us the view not of the "geo-paleontologist" Julian West, the central figure in his novel, but of West's ex-wife, Rachel Leopold, herself looking back from 2050 on the planet that Donald Trump's election helped produce. Slip under the covers and read it late tonight! -- Tom Engelhardt *** I didn't vote in the pivotal American election of 2016. Thirty-five years ago, in that unseasonably warm month of ...

Washington Post Editorial: The case for saving the Paris agreement 6.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
It is hard to say exactly what impact President-elect Donald Trump might have on the fight to slow human-caused climate change — for two reasons. First is that Trump has not been particularly clear on his views, though he leaves little reason for hope. He has at times sounded like a wholesale climate denier and conspiracy theorist, such as when he claimed global warming is a hoax. At other times he has taken a slightly more conciliatory tone. The last word the country has had from the next presi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Judge's Radical Exxon Ruling Could Turn the Legal System Upside Down 6.12.2016 Truthout.com
A Texas judge stated that he found sufficient grounds for ExxonMobil to investigate whether two attorneys general (AGs) had acted in bad faith when, in fact, the AGs have been engaged in activities that are commonplace and entirely appropriate for state prosecutors. (Photo: Thomas Hawk / Flickr ) A Texas federal judge's recent order -- that the attorneys general of Massachusetts and New York must submit to questioning by lawyers for ExxonMobil about why they are investigating the company -- is highly unusual and unwarranted, as is the underlying lawsuit brought by ExxonMobil against the prosecutors. If upheld, this approach could turn the legal system upside down, allowing wrongdoers possessing sufficient resources to file lawsuits that paralyze law enforcement efforts aimed at protecting the public. Although the Texas judge stated that he found sufficient grounds for ExxonMobil to investigate whether the two AGs had acted in bad faith, in fact the AGs have been engaged in activities that are commonplace ...

Ivanka Trump, Who's Moving To DC, Meets With Al Gore 6.12.2016 Crooks Liars
Two bits of news from this short clip: 1. Ivanka Trump is meeting with Al Gore today at Trump Tower. Her dad won't be there. 2. Ivanka is moving her family to DC. So much for that "my kids will run my business for me" nonsense. Is Ivanka going to divest from Trump Incorporated, too? And get how CNN reporter Jessica Schnieder covers the Donald Trump position on Climate Change, which he has called a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing ...

Every Insane Thing Donald Trump Has Said About Global Warming 5.12.2016 Mother Jones
Donald Trump has a lot of things to say about global warming. He's called it an urgent problem, and he's called it a hoax. He's claimed it's a scam invented by the Chinese, and he's denied that he ever said that. He's promised to "cancel" the historic Paris climate agreement, and he's said he still has an "open mind" on the matter. Some environmental activists have pointed to Trump's unpredictable statements as evidence that he might not follow through on his campaign pledges to dismantle the Obama administration's climate legacy. But Trump has already put one of the nation's most prominent climate skeptics in charge of the Environmental Protection Agency transition. And just last week, one of Trump's top aides assured Americans that the president-elect still believes climate science is mostly "bunk." For those keeping score at home, here's a timeline of the Donald's thoughts on global warming. 12/6/09 Read the full the letter at Grist. Trump signs a letter calling for urgent climate action. As Grist ...

Despite Trump, California plans ways to slash greenhouse gases 3.12.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
After 10 years of work, California appears poised to meet its first set of global warming goals, cutting greenhouse gas emissions back to 1990 levels by 2020. California air pollution regulators on Friday released their initial plan for slashing emissions another 40 percent by 2030, a target Gov. Jerry Brown enshrined in law this year. The plan, drafted by the California Air Resources Board, calls for keeping the state’s troubled cap-and-trade program, a market for pollution permits that is under attack in court and faces uncertain legislative support. [...] the plan also would slap new regulations on oil refineries to cut their greenhouse gas emissions 20 percent, either by installing more efficient equipment or changing the grades of crude they process. The plan’s release comes as California officials gird for conflict with the incoming Trump administration over climate change. “I don’t think there’s any plausible way the incoming administration could overturn California’s climate law and the ...

Becerra, Schneiderman: Two of the most important resistance leaders over the next four years 2.12.2016 Daily Kos
With popular vote-loser Donald Trump set to wage war on everything we hold dear, the center of the resistance will shift outside of Washington to the two biggest Democratic bastions in the country—California and New York.  In California, we should all celebrate Xavier Becerra’s appointment as attorney general to fill the seat vacated by Kamala Harris, who was elected to the U.S. Senate.  California officials have already signaled their intention to resist any efforts by Trump — who has called global warming a "hoax" perpetrated by the Chinese — to roll back the state's progressive climate-change policies. And efforts are underway to expand the state's "sanctuary" protections for undocumented immigrants to include college campuses in the state system. California counts dozens of such cities and counties within its borders, including San Francisco and Los Angeles, the nation's first sanctuary city. Or put another way: Becerra will be taking on a mirror-image version of the role that catapulted current ...
