I recently came back to New England from a visit to the Grand Canyon National Park--a trip that reaffirmed my commitment to protect this spectacular place and the surrounding area for future generations.
Investing in an electric future is not an obvious direction for a company like GM - and it has reversed course in the past and it could do so again. But if they do stay the course, it is absolutely deadly for oil companies.
We are halfway through the 2016 national elections and the onslaught of political money from billionaires and multimillionaires will continue and increase. This is not the way our democracy is meant to work or the way our country is meant to be governed.
The main attributes of a vice president are to balance the ticket, help raise money and then step back for four/eight years until it is her turn to run. You want someone good, but not too good, especially if you have an ego the size of Trump's.
It's time for the Commission to stop ramming these ridiculous proposals down veterans' throats. They don't want it, and they're not taking it lying down. We're listening; but is the Commission?
Clinton, no matter her rhetoric, is a pro-corporate Democrat who has significant ties to Koch Industries executives and lobbyists, and has allowed Koch Industries members to influence the policies of Democrats for decades.

"We won't see a presidential candidate like Bernie again in our lifetimes." As I heard these words, spoken by a woman at a Sanders campaign event recently, I felt a chill go through me. Because I knew she was right. We won't.
Hillary Clinton's or Sanders' election as president might well ensure a left of center bent on the Supreme Court. But even a flip of the Senate into Democratic hands would not unshackle residents in many states from regressive laws enacted by state legislatures and signed by doctrinaire conservative governors.
I think, on this April Fools' Day, that I have finally figured out the prank, which I daresay is one of the biggest pranks ever pulled on anyone anywhere.
Tomorrow I'm scheduled to speak at an EPA public hearing addressing a new rule that the agency has proposed regarding dangers from America's chemical plants.
