Climate change is a defining threat of our generation. But the way forward has never been clearer. Electric power generation is being transformed by the rapid deployment of wind, solar and utility-scale storage. Technological innovation is reshaping transportation and industry. New means of capturing and storing carbon are on the horizon. Even so, the challenge is monumental. To have a reasonable chance of avoiding the worst effects of climate change, the world must achieve “net-zero emissions” — taking as much carbon out of the atmosphere as we put into it — in this century. Here in the United States, we are currently emitting carbon pollution at seven times the rate that we are soaking it up. We must take advantage of every cost-effective opportunity to cut climate pollution now, while investing in the innovations that will put us on course for net-zero emissions as soon as possible. Economic and technological trends alone won’t do the trick. … [Read more...] about The path forward for net-zero emissions climate policy
The net neutrality protections that millions of Americans asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to implement were repealed on Monday, a result of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s efforts to undo the work of his predecessor and remove the agency as the cop on the broadband provider beat. The FCC voted to repeal the rules in December, but that vote has now taken effect. If you’re outraged by this news, you’re not alone. Net neutrality keeps our internet free and open, encourages innovation, and galvanizes the growth of small businesses. Fortunately, while the rules are officially gone, there is an important process underway in Congress to reinstate them. The Congressional Review Act (CRA) is a 1996 law that allows Congress to repeal recent federal agency policies by a simple majority in both chambers. It was used only once prior to 2016. This Congress has used it 17 times to repeal Obama-era regulations. But net neutrality isn’t an ordinary political issue, and … [Read more...] about Net neutrality has been repealed, but Congress could still bring it back
Les Miles gave a lesson on coach speak late last week when he told a Houston-area radio show that if you ask a fan base to be patient, you are saying your team isn't good. The comment piqued the interest of those around the LSU program. Why? Back in April, LSU coach Ed Orgeron asked his fan base to be patient. But, like anything, perspective is needed. Orgeron was talking about the development of his offense during spring practice. "We don't have the whole offense in. This thing is going to go throughout the summer, throughout camp," the coach said, per The Advocate. "We want to look good next Saturday. I want the quarterbacks to look good. We want to throw the ball. Want all that to happen. I believe some of that is going to happen, but we're not there yet. I ask the fans to be patient. We're not where we need to be, but we're going to get there." It isn't exactly the same as delivering the message in mid-season after a loss to Alabama, is it? Miles, … [Read more...] about Les Miles on LSU: ‘If you need a safety net, you need not coach for the Tigers’
