Science Under Siege 12.11.2018 American Prospect
House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith speaks on Capitol Hill.  This article appears in the Fall 2018 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  The HONEST Act may be one of the most perversely named pieces of legislation ever. Sponsored by Texas Republican Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Science Committee and one of the most fervent climate-science deniers in Congress, the acronym stands for Honest and Open New EPA Science Treatment. Smith, who is retiring this year, attempted to get the legislation through Congress in the past two sessions. Both times, it barely passed the House and failed in the Senate. That would usually be the end of it, but in line with the Trump playbook, the former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, announced he would issue most of the “HONEST” agenda as a proposed rule retitled “Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science.” The proposed “HONEST” rule sounds ever so reasonable. It would require that EPA’s scientific ...

Puffins: Harbingers of Climate Change 5.11.2018 American Prospect
This article appears in the Fall 2018 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  Audrey Holstead watched a puffin rocket in from the ocean with a beak dripping with fish. It zoomed over boulders in front of her bird blind and dropped with pinpoint accuracy into a narrow, dark crevice. Holstead’s skin crawled with electricity. Puffins come ashore with fish for only one reason: to feed a chick. This was the first feeding of the season observed at this particular hole. It belonged to the 173rd breeding pair of Atlantic puffins on Eastern Egg Rock, an island six miles off Pemaquid Point on Maine’s midcoast. That set a new record for the National Audubon Society’s Project Puffin, one of the world’s most famous bird restoration efforts. The season finished with 178 breeding pairs. “I just wanted to jump up and down and scream to the world,” Holstead says. “I did a little wiggly dance.” Holstead’s victory jig was one of several in the 45th summer of the project founded by Steve Kress, National ...

The Trade Strategy We Need 24.10.2018 American Prospect
This article appears in the Fall 2018 issue of The American Prospect magazine.  Subscribe here .  Hardly a week goes by without another U.S. tariff hike on China, Mexico, Canada, or one of our European allies. Different justifications are given each time: to stop Mexicans from immigrating to the United States, to shrink the trade deficit, to make China and Germany play by the rules, and of course, to “make America great again.” But Trump’s tariff tantrum is doomed to fail because it isn’t driven by a clear idea of what is wrong with the system. His policies will inflict pain on the United States and across the global economy, and crack the foundations of the international system. Worse, they are not part of an underlying economic strategy to restore balanced and equitable growth in the U.S. and world economy. The one real bright spot is that Trump’s actions have revived an overdue debate about reform of the global trading system. Argument has been going on for decades, while trade policy was made by a ...
