How Exactly Will We Move Away from Fossil Fuels?

Andrew Winston | Posted 04.15.2014 | Green
Andrew Winston

Obama's Climate Legacy May Come Down to Coal and 'No'

Bill Chameides | Posted 04.07.2014 | Green
Bill Chameides

Obama's record on climate is thus far mixed: kudos on his fuel economy standards, not so much on boosting fossil fuel production. With three years left to go, he can still swing for the fences and he has two big fat pitches, headed for the plate and right in his wheelhouse.

The Bluegrass State's coal industry has been singing the blues of late, but they've been handed a small victory courtesy of Representative Hal Rogers (R-KY), who, surprise, surprise, has the coal industry to thank for filling his election coffers.
