The Moral Voice of Corporate America

Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan said, “The equal treatment of all people is one of our nation’s bedrock principles.”Walmart’s chief executive, Doug McMillon, criticized Mr. Trump by name for his handling of the violence in Charlottesville, and called for healing.And in a rebuke to the president, who suggested that both the racist groups and the counterprotesters marching in Charlottesville were to blame for the violence there, a wave of chief executives who had agreed to advise Mr. Trump quit his business advisory councils, leading to the dissolution of two groups.The forthright engagement of these and other executives with one of the most charged political issues in years — the swelling confidence of a torch-bearing, swastika-saluting, whites-first movement — is “a seminal moment in the history of business in America,” said Darren Walker, the president of the Ford Foundation and a board member at PepsiCo.“In this maelstrom, the most clarifying voice has been the voice of business,” he said […]

Tempers Flare Over Removal of Confederate Statues in New Orleans

Such are the irreconcilable parameters of an ugly battle over race and history in New Orleans that seems to only be growing uglier, one that demonstrates the Confederacy’s enduring power to divide Americans more than 150 years after the cause was lost.PhotoProtesters shouted at supporters of keeping Confederate monuments on display at Lee Circle in New Orleans on Sunday.Credit Bryan Tarnowski for The New York Times“I can’t believe this is happening in my city,” said Charles Washmon, a 51-year-old contractor who was standing near a statue of Jefferson Davis, the Confederate president, on Thursday. Mr. Washmon, who is white, was part of a group of protesters waving Confederate flags who had been attracting both honks of support and invectives from passing cars all afternoon. Like Mr. Stewart, he feared that removing the statues would deprive a history-laden city of a crucial layer of its past. “It’s a travesty,” Mr. Washmon said.In December 2015, Mr. Landrieu, a Democrat who will leave office next year because of term limits, signed an ordinance calling for the removal of four monuments related to the Confederacy and its aftermath.

Right and Left on the North Korean Nuclear Threat

Mr. Lipson explains that Mr. Tillerson’s seeming contradiction of President Trump’s alarmist talk is not a sign that the White House is in “disarray.” Instead, he writes, it’s “good cop, bad cop.” Mr. Lipson admits that the situation with North Korea is dangerous, but writes that the “tepid diplomacy” of the Bush and Obama administrations “was dangerous, too.” Read more »_____• Mark Tooley in National Review:“Christian responses to public-policy challenges of today, whether Jeffress’s bellicosity or the anti-Americanism and reflexive pacifism of the religious Left, often don’t exemplify a sense of judicious responsibility.”This week, Pastor Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church of Dallas told The Washington Post that President Trump had the moral authority to “take out” the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Mr. Tooley explains why church leaders on either side of the political aisle should temper their advice on military matters. […]

Trump’s Harsh Language on North Korea Has Little Precedent, Experts Say

President Dwight D. Eisenhower used to say that the more shrill the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev was in the language he used against the United States — promising “we will bury you” and “we’re turning out missiles like sausages” — the more tempered he would be, Mr. Beschloss said.President John F. Kennedy was similarly restrained in his rhetoric in the run-up to the Cuban missile crisis, which was prompted by the discovery that nuclear missile sites were being constructed by the Soviet Union in Cuba, Mr. Beschloss said. In an address on Oct. 22, 1962, he called upon Khrushchev “to halt and eliminate this clandestine, reckless and provocative threat to world peace and to stable relations between our two nations” and “move the world back from the abyss of destruction.” As for the United States, Kennedy said, “the greatest danger of all would be to do nothing.”Mr. Trump’s statement, delivered from his Bedminster, N.J., golf resort, went far beyond the usual tough-but-vague language that past presidents have used to confront North Korea’s frequent provocations.Their responses — full of strong condemnations and recognition of grave threats — have mostly left out the fiery, nationalistic language favored by the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, and his father, Kim Jong-il, before him.

Government Report Finds Drastic Impact of Climate Change on U.S.

The report concludes that even if humans immediately stopped emitting greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the world would still feel at least an additional 0.50 degrees Fahrenheit (0.30 degrees Celsius) of warming over this century compared with today. A small difference in global temperatures can make a big difference in the climate: The difference between a rise in global temperatures of 1.5 degrees Celsius and one of 2 degrees Celsius, for example, could mean longer heat waves, more intense rainstorms and the faster disintegration of coral reefs.OPEN GraphicGraphic: How Americans Think About Climate Change, in Six MapsAmong the more significant of the study’s findings is that it is possible to attribute some extreme weather to climate change. The field known as “attribution science” has advanced rapidly in response to increasing risks from climate change.The report finds it “extremely likely” that more than half of the global mean temperature increase since 1951 can be linked to human influence.In the United States, the report finds with “very high” confidence that the number and severity of cool nights has decreased, while the frequency and severity of warm days has increased since the 1960s. Extreme cold waves, it says, are less common since the 1980s, while extreme heat waves are more common.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyInterested in Climate Change?Sign up to receive our in-depth journalism about climate change around the world.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

It said the average annual rainfall across the country has increased by about 4 percent since the beginning of the 20th century. Parts of the West, Southwest and Southeast are drying up, while the Southern Plains and Midwest are getting wetter.With a medium degree of confidence, the authors linked the contribution of human-caused warming to rising temperatures over the Western and Northern United States. It found no direct link in the Southeast.The Environmental Protection Agency is one of 13 agencies that must approve the report by Sunday. The agency’s administrator, Scott Pruitt, has said he does not believe that carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming.OPEN GraphicGraphic: 95-Degree Days: How Extreme Heat Could Spread Across the World“It’s a fraught situation,” said Michael Oppenheimer, a professor of geoscience and international affairs at Princeton University who was not involved in the study […]
