Climate change is not a future threat; it is happening now, and we are paying for it in lost lives and billions of dollars in damage.”

Bob Corker and the Climate Swerve

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 18:31:33 +0000

The trope shown at left, about Trump “holding the planet hostage,” isn’t entirely new. But it came into sharper relief for me over the weekend as I read Robert Jay Lifton’s insightful new book, The Climate Swerve. And it gave added weight to the apostasy of a ranking Republican senator who earlier this month told the […]






There are now 30 self-proclaimed climate-concerned House R’s. This new bill could be their gut check.

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 21:21:34 +0000

The day after the Congressional climate solutions caucus added its 30th Republican member, a dozen U.S. Senators, all Democrats, introduced a bill that could help gauge how serious these House R’s are about tackling the climate crisis. The Pollution Transparency Act, sponsored by Sen. Michael Bennet and 11 fellow Senators including Warren (D-MA), Wyden (D-OR) and  Whitehouse (D-RI), […]



Minnesota state auditor stakes campaign for governor on carbon dividend

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 19:27:30 +0000

(This post was researched and co-authored by CTC volunteer Diane Englander.) A prominent Minnesota politician is hitching her candidacy for governor to a carbon dividend plan designed to reduce climate-damaging emissions and create jobs in clean energy. State Auditor Rebecca Otto unveiled her Minnesota-Powered Clean Energy Plan on Sept. 20. The landing page of her […]



[We have been] engineering first in ignorance and then in denial a climate system that will now go to war with us for many centuries, perhaps until it destroys us.”

David Wallace-Wells, “The Uninhabitable Earth,” New York magazine, July 9. (Quoted by David Roberts in We have no system to deal with escalating climate damages. It’s time to build one, at vox.com, Sept 21, in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.)



What Hillary Clinton’s revelation about carbon dividends says about her campaign

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 12:05:12 +0000

Carbon taxing isn’t something you expect to see mentioned in What Happened, Hillary Clinton’s memoir about losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump. But deep in the book’s weeds we find a telling new window into how Clinton “blew the biggest slam dunk in the history of American politics” (as one political pro vented to […]



The climate solution that boosts income for over 60% of Americans – the ones who most need it

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 18:18:57 +0000

To view the latest census data on U.S. household incomes is to marvel at — and be appalled by — the unequal distribution of income in America. In 2016, according to official data released last month, the lowest-earning one-third of U.S. households received just one-twelfth of total money income, which the Census Bureau defines as “the […]



I don’t think my statements are going to change the way the administration thinks or the governor thinks, but let me tell you, people are afraid. People are understanding there is a new normal now.”
