Like most of us, I tend to assume however subconsciously that institutions I have passed through remain more or less preserved in time as in my own memory. I was surprised to see how much has changed since I graduated in 1988.
Alberta tar sands oil and North Dakota light shale oil flows into the same markets, have access to the same refineries, and rely on the same pipelines and railroads to get them to the same customers. So it was never terribly plausible that Keystone would be good for the U.S. -- it was designed to make Canadian oil more competitive in global markets.
The veto is just step one. Now, President Obama needs to move forward and reject Keystone XL once and for all. Pipeline opponents will be working even harder in this home stretch to make sure the [resident follows through and issues a real rejection.
When it comes to the defining issues of our future, India will have a seat at the table.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. Gocomics.com "whether an event is caused by climate change ... is the wrong ques...
The fact that the NRA should attempt to malign a public conference whose speaker's list contains one of their most ardent supporters shows you how unwilling or unable they have become when it comes to listening to any voice other than their own.
We should be grateful that, after years of snobbish resistance, the Times finally changed its mind about one aspect of the 91st Street MTS. But the admission is shamefully late and falls far short of what's needed.

I know we all have the best intentions of each and every NYC student at heart. And that should be at the basis of every conversation and decision moving forward.
The Yorkville garbage processing factory scandal reveals just about everything that's wrong with government and a lot that's wrong with journalism. How local reporters have managed to get this story so wrong and miss so much is a mystery.
After white cops kill three black suspects, two grand juries seem steered to no charges. What's different now are huge, national non-violent protests involving tens of thousands yet no demonstrator deaths, unlike '60s race riots. Could this actually be a "teachable moment" leading to change? Maybe yes, Matalin and Reagan agree.
We already have many of the technologies needed to fight super pollutants. Given how harmful these super pollutants are on our environment, it only makes sense to use these existing technologies to reduce our emissions and slow climate change before it is too late.
When Shannon Watts and Mike Bloomberg joined forces I thought that for the first time the gun-control movement had a chance to level the playing field against the NRA. What I didn't know and couldn't predict was how long it would take.
