Our Reporter Mike Schmidt on His Golf Club Interview With President Trump

The president believes he is his best spokesman, and he immediately began touting the landmark tax legislation he signed into law last week. I was convinced that the longer I talked with him, the more comfortable he would be with me and the more likely he would be to allow me to interview him. So I got into a catcher’s squat next to his chair, conveying to him that I was listening intently but also forcing him to look down at me while he talked, which kept him from being distracted by the others at the table.It’s been 20 years since I was a catcher in Little League, and a few minutes into our conversation my legs began to ache. But I knew I couldn’t stand up while I had the president one-on-one.I began to think about what had happened a day earlier. On Wednesday, the president invited the press to a local fire department, where he shook hands with emergency medical workers […]

President Trump’s Decision To Exit Paris Climate Agreement Is A Mistake

Paris Climate Agreement Could Create Jobs For Rural America

Based on news report coming out of Washington, it appears our county’s commitment to the landmark Paris climate agreement could be in question. It shouldn’t be. The Paris agreement is notable for many reasons, including recognition that every nation must contribute and every climate solution must be used, including techniques like carbon capture in forests that provide appealing “win-win” opportunities for our country. Given today’s politically polarized dialogue on climate change, it is no surprise that newly empowered conservative political leaders in Washington would re-examine this historic commitment that took effect last fall. After all, the new administration and Congress are scrutinizing federal policy on a number of issues subject to political conflict in recent years, such as immigration and health care. Yet, this re-evaluation of the Paris agreement could turn out to be positive for the longer term if done right. Our current political leaders will discover that the Paris agreement and the United States’ “Nationally Determined Contribution” under that agreement align well with many conservative principles for problem solving. For example, the Paris agreement:· Requires fast-growing nations like China to participate· Gives each nation flexibility to craft its own Nationally Determined Contribution, and leaves room for countries to refine and evolve their climate strategies over time· Recognizes the opportunity to capture carbon through forests, which could be leveraged to create jobs in rural areas in the U.S. and around the worldWhile all of these items are important to conservative principles, I want to focus on the last item—the potential role of forests in reducing carbon emissions—as a uniquely powerful opportunity to build consensus for climate action.If you’re wondering why forests are involved in an agreement to address climate change, let me explain how forests offer a powerful climate solution. Forests act like natural carbon scrubbers for our carbon emissions thanks to the process of photosynthesis, through which trees draw carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen. […]

Environmental Advocates – Thank Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio has become one of Earth’s biggest environmental advocates. I recently finished watching his new film “before the flood”. This landmark film looks at environmental degradation, carbon emissions, and even touches on one of the more pressing issues of our time, the environmental footprint of what we eat. This film harrowingly shows the damage that humans have done to the global environment over the last 100 years. […]

How Zillow’s Trick or Treat index gets it wrong

It focuses on dollars instead of density. […]

Barcelona is kicking cars off many of its streets.

According to a paper released Tuesday by James Hansen, formerly of NASA and now at Columbia University*, the landmark Paris Agreement is solid C-minus work — but when it comes to climate commitments, mediocrity is criminal. Slacker countries making only modest emissions reductions will lock future generations into dangerous levels of climate change.

The average global temperature is already 1 to 1.3 degrees Celsius warmer than preindustrial levels, according to Hansen’s group. That’s on par with the Earth’s climate of 115,000 years ago, when the seas were 20 feet higher than they are today.

Unless we phase out fossil fuels entirely in the next few years, Hansen told reporters on Monday, future generations will have to achieve “negative emissions” by actively removing carbon from the atmosphere. Seeing as we don’t even know if that’s possible, that’d be a helluva task for our progeny.

Hansen and his coauthors’ work, which is undergoing peer review, supports a lawsuit brought by 21 young people against the U.S. government. It charges our lawmakers with not fairly protecting the “life, liberty, and property” of future citizens by allowing fossil fuel interests to keep polluting.

But a solution is possible, Hansen explained, if we commit to a fee on carbon pollution and more investment in renewable energy.

*Correction: This story originally referred to Hansen as a former director of NASA. He was director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
