French Elections: Alt-Right, Total and Gold Mines, the Story Behind the Candidates' Environmental Policies 21.4.2017 Truthout - All Articles
The birthplace of the Paris Climate Agreements, the first round of France's presidential election on starts on Sunday, April 23. Throughout the campaign debates on the environment have often been sidelined, with the three leading candidates showing no sign of real climate leadership. The backdrop to the election campaign has been full of "fake news", Brexit and Donald Trump. It has also been mired in scandals over corruption claims and  growing concerns of Russian interference . Many in France are still deciding who to vote for in one of the most unpredictable elections yet. If no candidate wins a majority on April 23, a second election round featuring the top two candidates will take place on May 7. Far-right Marine Le Pen's rise through the polls shows the populist pulse of Brexit and Trump's election continues to resonate on the continent. But Le Pen's efforts to give the Front National (FN) a new, greener image is tainted by the party's ongoing magnet effect with alt-right groups which reject ...

Saving the Planet Goes Local 21.4.2017 American Prospect
This article appears in the Spring 2017 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  Of all the Trump administration’s policies, the one most likely to cause damage that can’t be undone may not be deporting immigrants or throwing poor people off Medicaid or outsourcing our foreign policy to the Kremlin. Rather, it could well be a cessation of efforts to combat climate change. The accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is cumulative; even a later reversal of the Trump administration’s fossil fuel–friendly policies would not be able to undo the damage about to be done. Even by the environmentally retrograde standards of his party, Donald Trump stands out as an extreme climate-science denier: Cold winter weather in New York prompts him to tweet that global warming has been proven a hoax. He hates wind farms (partly because they threaten the views from one of his Scottish golf resorts). On the campaign trail, Trump vowed to repeal President Obama’s pro-climate regulations and all ...
