Don’t Miss Chance to Rewrite Tax Code, Paul Ryan Will Tell His Party

He will acknowledge that the debate over a “border adjustment” tax on imports — which was the centerpiece of the House plan, and which the White House and many House and Senate Republicans oppose — still needs to be settled. However, he will argue that the country must switch to a territorial system, which would tax all businesses solely on the goods and services they sold in the United States.Continue reading the main story“We must think differently so that, once again, we make things here and export them around the world,” Mr. Ryan will say.He will also make the case for permanent changes to the tax system, rather than just temporary tax cuts.Because Republicans are planning to pass tax legislation without the help of Democrats, they are relying on the Senate’s budget reconciliation rules, which require only a simple majority, rather than 60 votes. However, tax cuts that add to the deficit would expire after 10 years under these rules.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

A Fair Climate Deal? Accountability First!

Joachim Schleich, Grenoble École de Management (GEM) On June 1, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, ignoring pleas from businesses (including fossil-energy heavyweights such as ExxonMobil), city mayors (including the former steel capital Pittsburgh), federal states (including the world’s sixth-largest economy, California), his own Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense, all other G7 leaders and, last but not least, the Pope. After almost two decades of tedious negotiations, the Paris Agreement (or Accord de Paris) was adopted in December 2015 by virtually every country in the world, including the U.S. The Paris Agreement’s central aim is to hold global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius and to pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Unlike its predecessor, the Kyoto Protocol, the Paris Agreement not only involves greenhouse gas emission targets for developed countries but also for emerging and developing countries such as China and India. The countries that have ratified the Paris Agreement are obliged to submit a plan every five years to the United Nations stating how they intend to achieve their “nationally determined contributions” (NDCs), which are voluntary pledges to limit national greenhouse-gas emissions and to help developing countries cope with climate change. In a nutshell, President Trump essentially decided to pull his country out of a voluntary deal that has no enforcement mechanism in place, thereby snubbing the global coalition of almost 200 countries that signed the Paris Agreement, and adding stress to transatlantic diplomatic relations. Why did Donald Trump dump the Paris Agreement […]

Trump’s Withdrawal Of The U.S. From The Paris Climate Agreement Is A Disaster

American leadership brought us the United Nations, the World Bank, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and the Marshall Plan, which helped rebuild a continent decimated by war and secure a peace that has lasted for more than 70 years. As a senior member of Congress, a member of the Helsinki Commission, and member of the American delegation to the 80th Inter-Parliamentary Meeting of European Union and United States Legislators, one of my responsibilities is to work with the delegation’s European counterparts on cooperative efforts to address and resolve issues of mutual concern. This is becoming increasingly difficult because in less than 150 days, President Trump has done more to damage relations with our allies and the standing of the United States in the world than all of his predecessors combined. On his maiden trip abroad as the leader of the United States, Trump embarrassed our country and alienated our allies by failing to affirm our commitment to Article 5 of the NATO charter which regards an attack on any NATO member as an attack on all of them. Driving a wedge between the United States and its European allies has been the long sought strategic objective of the Russians since the formation of NATO in 1949. […]

States Are Taking Note of Nuclear Energy’s Carbon Free Benefits

As a former administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, I care deeply that progress continue to be made in the fight against climate change – and policymakers in states across the country are stepping up to do just that. I also know the resolve it requires to drive meaningful change in how we develop and use energy, which is the key factor in combatting climate change. Ultimately, there is no silver bullet that will solve climate change. Rather, we have to pursue an array of promising solutions. To that end, I have always been a strong proponent of renewable sources of energy. It is increasingly clear that clean power sources such as wind and solar have an important role to play in our energy infrastructure. However, in our menu of clean energy options, nuclear energy and its carbon free output often is overlooked for its contributions in the fight against climate change. I have always been a proud environmentalist, but I didn’t always support nuclear energy. […]

Scott Pruitt is now offering lessons in the art of the burn.

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority mentioned the leak in an annual report on offshore exploration but revealed no details about who operated the well.

That information came to light on Friday, when Woodside Petroleum — Australia’s largest oil and gas producer, owned by Royal Dutch Shell — admitted to owning the well on the North West Shelf of the country. The leak began in April 2016 and lasted about two months. All told, it spilled nearly 2,800 gallons of oil into the ocean.

Woodside gave a statement to the Australian Broadcasting Company claiming the spill caused no damage: “Due to the composition of the fluid, small quantity released, water depth at release site, and distance from environmentally sensitive areas, there was no lasting impact to the environment.”

Offshore oil safety expert Andrew Hopkins told the Guardian that the Australian regulator’s failure to identify who was responsible for the spill is concerning, as it spares reckless firms from justice via “naming and shaming.”

“Companies that know they will be named in the case of an incident like this,” Hopkins said, “are going to be less likely to do it.”
