SOTU's Optimism and Populism - Is Obama a Roaring Lion or Lame Duck? 26.1.2015 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
LISTEN HERE: By Mark Green After Obama's popular SOTU agenda to "I won twice," Matalin and Corn debate if he will shape the next two years or 10 with his framework of An Economy for All. Sure looks like he has already now that McConnell and Romney agree the rich have gotten richer at the expense of the poor! Is Boehner-Bibi payback for Speaker forced to sit glumly for an hour? On SOTU, Domestically. What do you both think of Obama's confident, almost cocky tone? David thinks it's about time since the GOP predicted economic disaster yet the economy is strong and since the president proposed concrete ways to fight the twin problems of inequality and immobility. And he in effect said to Republicans 'whaddaya got?'" Mary agrees that his ad lib was effective but "yeah he won twice though Democrats, got slaughtered in Congress and the States -- so again it's about me, me, me, me." As for his proposals: Boehner and Matalin say same 'ol stuff while Corn lauds 70-30 ideas that concretely help a shrinking middle ...

Sarah Palin 'Seriously Interested' In Running For President In 2016 25.1.2015 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) continued to tease a potential bid for the Republican nomination for president this week leading up to a Saturday address at the Iowa Freedom Summit. Palin characterized herself as having a "servant's heart" in a Thursday interview with ABC News, saying she's "had enough" of seeing a "sign on the Oval Office door saying, 'No Girls Allowed.'" “Of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested,” she said. The Washington Post followed up with Palin on Friday in Des Moines. “You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested," she told the Post. "As I said yesterday, I’m really interested in the opportunity to serve at some point.” Palin has said many times that she hasn't ruled out a run for the White House, saying she'll "never say never," and that she'd "love to see a woman on both sides of the aisle" pursue the role . The 2008 vice ...

Momentum Remains High for Forests' Role in Sustainable Development and Tackling Climate Change 24.1.2015 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
This week at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, the crucial role of forests in tackling climate change is on the agenda. I will give the opening speech at the session on "Reducing Tropical Deforestation Related to Key Agricultural Commodities". Invited panelists include President Humala of Peru; Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development of France; CEOs Marc Bolland of Marks and Spencer and David M. MacLennan of Cargill; and Jeremy Goon, Chief Sustainability Officer of Wilmar, and other prominent leaders. Conserving the world's forests is critical to climate change mitigation. Forests absorb carbon dioxide and provide a range of other services. When cleared or degraded, however, they become a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions. Over thirteen million hectares of forests are still being cleared each year. That's an area around three times the area of Switzerland. This destruction is contributing up to twenty per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, and ...

7 People Obama Has Agreed to Meet With (Not Named Netanyahu) 24.1.2015 Yahoo: Politics
Citing a “long-standing practice” that precludes American presidents from meeting with heads of state on the eve of their elections, the White House announced this week President Obama has declined to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he comes to Washington in March to advocate for new sanctions against Iran. House Speaker John Boehner had just announced he invited the Israeli leader to address Congress without consulting the White House -- perceived to be a dig at the president, who promised in his State of the Union address on Tuesday to veto any new sanctions. The Israeli elections come just two weeks after Netanyahu is slated to visit Washington. “The president has spent more time talking to Prime Minister Netanyahu than any other world leader,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest stressed to reporters ...
The View on Climate Change Is Different From 4.5 Feet 24.1.2015 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Middle School students posing with the Green Ninja We all know that climate change is not an easily resolvable problem. It has become a point of contention and the center of discussion for a plethora of articles, debates, forums, world summits, films, etc. Talk on climate change is ubiquitous. Recently Buzzfeed interviewed 18 scientists to see how they really felt about climate change. Professor David Briggs from Monash University's statement encompasses the heartbeat of the issue: "But most of all I feel so very sorry for my children's and my (hypothetical) grandchildren's generation, for all the beautiful things in the world that they will miss." Over the past couple of months the Green Ninja team visited over 32 middle school classrooms in the Bay Area, providing over 750 students with climate change lessons, hands on experience and inspiration on how to reduce their carbon footprint. Results from a survey gave us some insight into their thoughts about climate change. Here are the top 10 things this ...

'Should All Bathrooms Be Gender Neutral?' Asks Laci Green Of MTV's 'Braless' 24.1.2015 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Should all bathrooms be gender neutral? This is the question posed by Laci Green in the latest installment of MTV's web series, " Braless ." Green contemplates the reasoning behind pushing for single-stall, gender neutral bathrooms and outlines some different solutions to how this could become a viable reality. "In theory, the easiest way to increase bathroom access, safety and comfort is for everyone to stop being jerks and mind their own business," Green quips. "All of those people playing gender detective in the bathroom could just not do that. I mean, it's a toilet! We're literally talking about a hole that people shit in! What is wrong with people? Everyone deserves to piss in peace." As Green implies, using a public restroom can cause an immense amount of unnecessary anxiety for members of the transgender community. Check out the video above or head here to read more about the necessity of gender-neutral ...
