The Federal Reserve can’t keep ignoring climate change

The climate has a money problem, but it’s not the way we spend taxpayer dollars (ok, we have that problem too) — it’s the Federal Reserve. In case you missed it, earlier this month the Fed blocked a global effort to regulate climate change, and the risk it poses to our communities and economy. A …

President Biden and Speaker Johnson are locked in a global fight over LNG exports and climate change

Enough with the nonsense, let’s ban LNG exports now.

We told you a week or two ago about fossil fueled fascist House Speaker Mike Johnson’s plan to repeal President Biden’s pause on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exports in exchange for aiding Ukraine. MAGA Mike is still trying to head off an insurrection from inside his own fossil fascist caucus. But there is a simpler …

Fossil Fueled Fascists in the House have a dirty, dumb idea for LNG

House Speaker Mike Johnson has been facing pressure to call a vote on urgently-needed aid to Ukraine. But extremists in his own caucus have already filed a “motion to vacate” his speakership if he brings the Senate’s bipartisan Ukraine aid package up for a vote. So this weekend, Speaker Johnson went on Fox news to …

Fossil Fueled Fascists

We’re still right, Trump’s still wrong, so what do we do next?

No surprise: This week the Supreme Court took the extraordinary step to protect Donald Trump by allowing him to remain on the ballot in Colorado and other states, despite having led an insurrection to overthrow the results of the 2020 election in plain view. This latest decision came just a few days after the Supremes …

LNG exports remain unbound. Time to shut down the permitting pipeline

We’ve told you before how both Maine and Colorado barred Donald Trump …
