The World Reacts to America's Climate Denier-in-Chief 9.11.2016 Mother Jones
This story was originally published by the Huffington Post and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. MARRAKECH, Morocco―Attendees at the climate conference here are grappling with a reality few expected: America's next president will almost certainly be openly hostile to efforts to address the biggest environmental threat of our day. Representatives of more than 200 countries are currently gathered in Morocco for the 22nd Conference of the Parties , where they are hashing out the details of the landmark Paris Agreement to curb greenhouse gas emissions and avoid the worst effects linked to global warming. Officials from environmental and scientific groups gathered at the United Nations climate change conference tried not to dwell on the prospect of a doomsday scenario, but were clear that a climate change-denying Donald Trump would not be in the best interest of America, or the world. But they tried to remain positive. "It's clear that Donald Trump is about to be one of the most ...

Will Green Political Machine Foil Trump? 20.7.2016 American Prospect
Alex Milan Tracy/Sipa via AP Images Protesters at a climate justice march in Portland, Oregon, on December 12, 2015.    Voters don’t tend to rank the environment among their top five concerns, but green activists have staked out an early and potentially decisive role in the progressive movement to defeat Donald Trump. Indeed, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee is widening the left-right divide on the environment into a gaping abyss. Climate politics, in particular, is emerging as a politically potent wedge issue that could drive Democratic and swing voters, some of whom have yet to enthusiastically embrace Hillary Clinton, to turn out against Trump. “He has said any number of things that by themselves would have been enough to demonstrate that he is a distinct threat to our progress on climate that we’ve made over the last 12 months, but also to baseline protections for clean air and clean water,” says Clay Schroers, national campaigns director at the League of Conservation Voters. The group has ...

Here's Why Capitol Cops Arrested a Bunch of Senior Citizens Today 13.4.2016 Mother Jones
The day after more than 400 people were arrested on Capitol Hill, US Capitol Police on Tuesday arrested 85 mostly elderly activists who were blocking the south entrance of the Capitol. They were all participating in " Democracy Spring ," a weeklong series of rallies and marches on the Capitol aimed at bringing attention to the control of money over politics in Congress and what organizers say are unfair voting laws. Each day of rallies focuses on a different theme. Tuesday's demonstration was called "Elders Standing for Democracy Spring," (Monday's was "All On Board"). Events later in the week include "Racial Justice Day," "Labor Solidarity Day," "Youth and Student Day," and finally, on Saturday, "Climate Justice Day."
