If we are to solve the climate problem we need to focus our attention on policies and programs that are practical and politically feasible. Even if a second President Clinton had a Democratic Congress she would have trouble getting a carbon tax enacted.
The Times could have insisted on seeing the documents they were describing. Or, if the Times spoke with Republicans in Congress, even off the record, they could have checked their facts with me or other Committee Democrats. Unfortunately, this rush to print anonymous, unverified claims against Secretary Clinton is not unique.

All of India may not have been vegetarian all the time. But the importance given to vegetarianism in Indian life for the simple reason we could live without taking an animal life, is an enormous leap in human civilization that the modern West has had a very tough time coming around to accept.
Another day, another reminder from NYPD commissioner Bill Bratton that the era of "predictive policing", the orwellian idea that cops can predict crime, is already here. This wasn't the first time Bratton has openly talked about such a potentially controversial subject.

I had been struggling with heroin addiction for nine years and tried everything to get clean. I was barely keeping a job and frequently going to twelve-step meetings, but I could not stop using heroin because every time I did, I would end up with terrible physical withdrawal.
