The Urban Common Spaces That Show Us We Belong to Something Larger 3.6.2017 Truthout - All Articles
An American friend living in Germany told me a story about when she first arrived. She and her German boyfriend were out walking when she heard a noise that got louder as they approached the town's main square. Puzzled, she asked her partner about the unfamiliar sound. "That's the sound of people talking to each other," he told her. People outside, not drowned out by the noise of cars or amplified music. Imagine! On my recent trip to Europe, where I was speaking about my new  book,  The Revolution Where You Live, I, too, found people everywhere outside, enjoying common spaces. Jane Jacobs, the author and activist who  revolutionized urban planning , wrote often about the outdoor spaces where people encounter each other. Even in large, gritty cities such as New York and Berlin, these urban commons  connect us to each other  and to the land, water, plants, and animal life of our home. We experience what it means to belong to something larger, to be welcome simply because we are alive. But common spaces  ...

Pulling Out of the Paris Climate Pact, Trump Is Building a Wall Around Himself 2.6.2017 Truthout.com
President Trump has announced that the US is pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement. In response, state leaders are pledging to move forward with their own initiatives -- with or without Trump. The president says he's open to "renegotiation" with other countries, but there may be no one left to negotiate with. President Donald Trump announces his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accords, in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, DC, June 1, 2017. Trump said he would start to negotiate to re-enter the agreement, which most of the world has already ratified, on what he described with no evidence as terms that would be fair to American workers. (Photo: Doug Mills / The New York Times) President Trump may soon find himself behind a wall, but not the kind he may have imagined when running for office. Speaking at the White House on Thursday, Trump announced he is pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement, a voluntary but historic international plan ...

Donald Trump Pulls U.S. Out Of Paris Accord In Crushing Blow To Climate Fight 2.6.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
The United States will pull out of the Paris Agreement on combating climate change, President Donald Trump announced Thursday, a decision that makes good on one of his key campaign pledges but deals a devastating setback to international efforts to curb global warming. “I’m fighting every day for the great people of this country,” Trump said at a press conference in the White House Rose Garden. “Therefore, in order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the united states will withdraw from the Paris climate accord.” Trump’s announcement ends months of suspense characterized in recent weeks by a reality TV-style cliffhanger over what he would do, as some of his White House advisers urged him to keep the U.S. in the deal. With his withdrawal decision, the U.S. joins Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries outside the agreement to combat climate change. Other countries, led by the European Union, China and India, pledged to forge ahead in the effort without the U.S. But the loss of ...
