Katrina and Lowry debate whether a) beheadings and media war whoops forced Obama's hand; b) he gets a boost or blame in November; c) he'll escalate if Bombs-without-Boots fails. What now happens to his desired pivot to Asia, climate, inequality? Ray Rice too is tackled by tape. Is a video worth a million words?
This has nothing to do with privacy. I'm so tired of people blabbering on about how we need to respect people's privacy. Sexuality shouldn't be a private matter. It certainly isn't for straight people.
Above all, it is clarity, not complexity, that companies need -- which is why in addition to putting a price on carbon, BT supports a carbon labelling scheme for electricity, as one solution that would reward businesses for using low carbon and renewable energy.
We know it's important not to confuse day-to-day weather patterns with climate, which measure variations of things like temperatures and humidity over long periods of time, but it's clear that these disasters are made more powerful by global warming. The pain is only going to get worse for us and for future generations, unless we act now.
It's not about polar bears and saving the trees (unless you like that sort of thing). It's about the millions of people around the world who are being hit hardest by a problem they didn't create.
If we are to keep global warming within the manageable limits of 2 degrees Celsius by 2012, we need to speak up with a clear, strong, united voice -- now.
R. Christie and Lamarche focus on Congress -- why it voted 3:1 for Obama's Syria-ISIS plan and who'll make the grade in the upcoming midterm exam? And they split on the greater 'existential threat' to U.S.: Ron says ISIS, Gara says climate. Three beheadings vs. "There's no Planet B"?
Fashion matters. As we approach a series of crunch talks for the planet on environmental issues pertaining to climate change, beginning with UN talks in New York, I want to say this loud and proud.
The scientific debate about whether human-caused global warming exists is long over. The remaining window of time for the needed transformation is short, and the only real issue is how we respond. This is where U. S. leadership is most critical.
In different areas of the world, there may be better players, better games, and better pure basketball. But New York City is still the Mecca. When you tell someone, "I played streetball in New York City," they'll immediately know it toughened you up.
It's time to disrupt the media status quo on climate silence, connect the green weather dots and invite the rest of America to join the conversation.
Thousands of union members will link arms with environmental activists, to demand action from global leaders to reverse the effects of climate change. At first, that might seem strange -- the labor movement and environmentalists are not often characterized as natural allies.
In the attempt to start a citywide dialogue with "the types of questions a child would ask, but few adults actually do," Spanish-born graphic designer, Marta Ibarrondo, is inviting New Yorkers to join her movement at The Unzipped Truth.
Despite promises made by world leaders, progress on education has stalled, financial aid to basic education is being reduced and both schools and school children are under attack. And now young people see an attack on one student as an attack on them all.
Rock stars come and go, however one is about to make his triumphant, albeit low key return -- which will be the absolute reverse manner in which he forged his legendary larger-than-life Big Apple debut in the waning days of Nixon's America and Watergate.
There's no telling when Two Gentlemen of Verona will come around again. So if an incarnation this good is available, that's even more reason to tune right in.
We need to stop ever more costly and risky extraction from places such as deepwater sites or the Arctic. We need to stop granting subsidies for fossil fuels - something that many of our governments have committed to do but have yet to put into practice.
The climate movement is home to quite a few who go the full-on vegan, composting, skip-coffee-because-it's-bad-for-the-climate route. But going green is only good if it actually gets somewhere.
