We Need A President Who Will Continue Obama’s Climate Legacy -- Not Destroy It
Huffington Post - 4 months
President Barack Obama will leave the White House in January with a proud environmental legacy. Despite fierce opposition in Congress and some resistance abroad, the president has managed to pass several key climate initiatives at home and brokered several important global deals to curtail greenhouse gas emissions. The Paris Agreement, the most significant climate change accord in history, is perhaps Obama’s crowning achievement. “No U.S. president has done more to advance the fight against climate change. By a long shot,” wrote Lou Leonard, the head of the World Wildlife Fund’s climate change program, in The Huffington Post last month. “Whether driving domestic policy through the Environmental Protection Agency as Congress dithered, or using his diplomatic powers to make climate change a legitimate top foreign policy issue, President Obama has elevated climate and clean energy as no president has before.” But as the ongoing legal and Congressional battle over Obama’s Clean P ...

Innovation, Meet Deployment: Climate Policy's Twin Imperatives
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Among other achievements, the Paris climate conference gave birth to the Mission Innovation Initiative, a joint effort by 20 world governments to accelerate the pace of "clean energy innovation" by doubling energy R&D over the next few years. The launch statement begins by explaining that current technologies are inadequate to solve the climate crisis, noting that, "while important progress has been made in cost reduction and deployment . . . . the pace of innovation and the scale of transformation and dissemination remains significantly short of what is needed." This sentiment was echoed by President Obama, who said at the Paris conference that "we're also going to have to just invent some entirely new technologies," and futurist Ted Nordhaus, who flatly states that "we do not, in fact, have all the technology we need to achieve deep a reduction in emissions." To the casual listener, these statements might sound a bit defeatist regarding near-term action. Current technology n ...

Peter Fox-Penner, PhD: President Obama's Climate Change Action Plan: Positives and One Big Regret Versus the Last Time Around
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The first national climate plan in the nation's history was issued almost exactly twenty years ago, in October 1993. The Clinton-Gore Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) contained 44 actions that required no new legislative authority but did, in most cases, require supplemental spending approvals. The programs included several expanded energy efficiency measures, a few small renewable energy programs, methane reduction and forestry actions, and even programs to promote natural gas. Despite calling for spending of about $1.3 billion, the plan was made deficit-negative by proposing to reform a $2 billion tax subsidy for employer-paid parking. On June 25, 2013, President Obama issued his own Climate Action Plan. The contrasts between this plan and the first attempt in 1993 show how far this issue has progressed and how much President Obama has been able to advance the policy landscape in this vitally important area. It points to significant accomplishments in the Pres ...

Peter Fox-Penner, PhD: A High-Energy State of the Union

The President's speech last week contained more discussion of climate and energy than any State of the Union (SOTU) speech in recent memory -- perhaps ever. Beyond making a strong case for taking action to combat the effects of climate change, in the SOTU speech and Plan for a Strong Middle Class & a Strong America the President: Directed his cabinet "to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy." Called on Congress to make the PTC permanent and refundable as part of tax reform with the goal of doubling renewable power generation (again) by 2020. Called for an "Energy Efficiency Race to the Top" and to "cut in half the energy wasted...over the next twenty years." Proposed an Energy Security Trust funded from gas and oil royalties to "support research into a range of cost-effective technol ...

Australian PM Orders Federal Inquiry Into Accusations Of Abuse
Huffington Post - over 4 years
SYDNEY -- Australia's prime minister ordered a federal inquiry Monday into allegations of child sex abuse in state and religious institutions and community groups following a string of sexual abuse accusations against priests and claims of a Catholic Church cover-up. Prime Minister Julia Gillard had faced mounting pressure to order a wide-ranging investigation after the New South Wales state premier last week ordered an inquiry into allegations of a sexual abuse cover-up by Catholic priests in the Hunter Valley region north of Sydney. Victorian officials are also investigating a separate series of priest sex abuse allegations in their state. "Any instance of child abuse is a vile and evil thing. Australians know that," Gillard told reporters in Canberra. "Australians know, from the revelations that they've read in recent weeks, that too many children have suffered child abuse but have also seen other adults let them down. They've not only had their trust betrayed ...

Do Power Outages Have To Last This Long?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
NEW YORK -- When Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast, it flooded electrical substations and knocked down trees, shutting off power for 8.2 millions customers. While the electric companies got that number down to 4.45 million as of Thursday, it will be days or even weeks before all the region's residents can turn their lights on. New York's ConEd said Thursday that recovery would take until Nov. 11 for most, but could stretch on until the end of the month. Does the restoration of the mid-Atlantic power grid have to take so achingly long? While the utility companies argued that they're working as hard as they possibly can, several experts said that America's power infrastructure could be more resilient -- even when tested by a once-in-a-century storm. "The message from Sandy is that it has to be stronger," said James Hoecker, a lawyer who led the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission under President Bill Clinton. Experts suggested various adjustments, such as underg ...

Don’t write Wakefield Wildcats off warns Thornton
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Respected coach/pundit Gary Thornton is expecting Wakefield Trinity Wildcats to push Leeds Rhinos all the way in tomorrow’s Stobart Super League elimination play-off. Thornton has just completed his duties as Castleford Tigers’ under-20s team boss and is beginning a new role at York City Knights. That will be his second spell in charge of a Co-op Championship club after a successful stint with Batley Bulldogs. He is also a former Wildcats academy coach, was brought up as a Leeds fan and has seen both sides in action regularly this year in his part-time role as a summariser on Yorkshire Radio. Assessing this weekend’s derby, Thornton feels Rhinos will win – but he accepts there is the potential for an upset. “It’s a close one,” he stated. “I was really disappointed with Leeds’ performance at Huddersfield last Sunday. “They looked a little lacklustre and I’m sure Brian (McDermott, Rhinos’ coach) will be disappointed with the way they finished their sets. “Jamie Peacock and Rob Bur ...

Peter Fox-Penner, PhD: Ideas, Leadership, and the New Left: A Reply to Fukuyama
Huffington Post - over 4 years
A few months ago, in the 90th anniversary edition of Foreign Affairs, Francis Fukuyama looked across the last two centuries of economic and political history and reached two grand conclusions. First, during this period the liberal democracy has been the world's only successful secular model. Liberal democracies created an increasingly wealthy middle class that still strongly backs a system combining a democratically-governed public sector with a primarily private economy. Second, Fukuyama joined the widely-shared consensus that this model is in trouble. The financial crisis and a persistent inability to address deep-seated structural and political problems have all but halted economic and social progress, threatening the stability and perhaps even the existence of many liberal states. Among the culprits Fukuyama blamed for this state of affairs, one is curious. Fukuyama reframed the failure of liberal democracies as a failure of the Left to create viable alternatives to th ...

Nervy Wakefield Wildcats just one win away
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Surprise package Wakefield Trinity Wildcats are a win away from a place in the Stobart Super League play-offs. Last night’s tense 22-18 victory over Widnes Vikings lifted them a point above Bradford Bulls into the eight and final play-offs spot. Wakefield will qualify, probably for an opening-round trip to Leeds Rhinos, if they win at Salford City Reds on Saturday – and defeat for Bradford at Catalan Dragons would also be good enough. Salford’s ground is unavailable on Saturday, so the game – originally scheduled for Sunday – may be moved to Leigh. Last night was Wildcats’ sixth successive victory, but they were well below par and needed yet another grandstand finish to secure the posts. It was 18-18 with five minutes left when Tim Smith and Paul Sykes linked to send Kyle Wood into space, he seemed to have been shut down but got the ball away to Danny Kirmond and the skipper crashed over for the winning try. That was tough on Widnes, who had taken a shock lead after six minutes. ...

Flier Fox sees his long-term future at Wakefield Wildcats
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Flying winger Peter Fox is looking to stick around at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats for another three years – so he can play for them at their new stadium. The government yesterday granted provisional planning permission for the Newmarket development, which will allow Wildcats to leave their run-down Belle Vue base and move into a purpose-built community facility. Fox, 28, rejoined Wakefield – after four seasons with Hull KR – last winter and is out of contract at the end of 2014, which is pencilled in as the final year at the current ground. Wildcats hope work on their new stadium – scheduled to take 56 weeks – will begin that year and they will move in for the beginning of the 2015 campaign. That gives Fox extra incentive to earn a contract extension and he said: “I would love to play at the new stadium. “I have seen the plans and it looks outstanding. Hopefully if I am still around I might get a chance to play on it. I don’t know what’ll happen in the future or where I’ll be, but ...

Magic Weekend: Wakefield Wildcats edge see-saw derby
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Richard Mathers and Tim Smith both made a point as Wakefield Trinity Wildcats edged to a dramatic and at times bizarre 32-26 win over Castleford Tigers in the Magic Weekend opener at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium. Mathers, on a season-long loan at Wakefield after being shown the door at Cas, scored an important try. And Smith – whose substitution against Warrington six days earlier was cheered by Wildcats fans – produced some individual magic to grab what was effectively the winner. There was little between the sides in an entertaining, end-to-end game, but Wakefield – who led 24-20 at half-time – made more of their opportunities, scoring six tries to Tigers’ five. They also had four ruled out by video referee James Child. Winger Ben Cockayne was denied twice, but would have deserved a try for a hard-working effort. Danny Kirmond returned from injury and was influential for Wildcats, while Paul Aiton contributed a solid 80-minute stint. Tigers got their chins off the floor fol ...

Jail for animal abuse film ex-cop
Yorkshire Evening Post - almost 5 years
A former director of the body which runs the Great Yorkshire Show was jailed for two-and-a-half years today after he admitted filming a man having sex with a pony. Ex-policeman Charles Littleboy made the video in his stables while the man was supposedly taking part in an animal breeding practical course, Teesside Crown Court heard. Police discovered the video along with a stash of images of horrific sexual abuse of young boys on two computers at Littleboy’s home in Howe, Thirsk, North Yorkshire. He pleaded guilty last month to 11 counts of making indecent images of children, four counts of distributing indecent images of children, five counts of possessing extreme pornographic images and one count of possessing 3,904 indecent photographs of children. Some of the extreme pornography related to bestiality - including the material he filmed consensually at his property, the court heard. Other images concerned sexual mutilation of men. The film with the male pony was made a number of ...

Man in court over double murder LATEST
Yorkshire Evening Post - almost 5 years
A 36-year-old man accused of murdering two people in their homes appeared in court via videolink today and seemed to have a gash to his head. James Allen, of Lothian Road, Middlesbrough, has apparently suffered the injury since he was remanded into custody by magistrates yesterday. (May 2) He was arrested in Leeds on Sunday following the murders of Colin Dunford, 81, and Julie Davison, 50. During a brief hearing before Judge Peter Fox at Middlesbrough Crown Court, Allen seemed subdued over the TV link to Holme House Prison. He did not enter pleas to the two counts of murder, and charges of rape, grievous bodily harm, false imprisonment and witness intimidation that he also faces. The case was adjourned until July 6 when a plea and directions hearing will take place. Mr Dunford, from Leven Street, Middlesbrough, and Ms Davison, from Whitby, North Yorkshire, were found dead in their homes last week having suffered head injuries.

5 Upcoming Albums You Need To Watch Out For This Spring
Obsessed with Film - What Cultur - almost 5 years
What better way to bring Spring to a close than a medley of upcoming musical treats from the world of Pop. As the weather gets warmer (with the British weather it’ll probably be the opposite), here are five new albums and a new artist’s lead single that will soon be blazing up a download site/the last shops to actually sell CDs near you:   Santigold – Master Of My Make-Believe Release Date 23rd April It’s feels like a long time coming but finally the wheels are in motion for Santigold’s return to the music frontline and the cannons are thundering away. After all the name change confusion (Santogold becoming Santigold seemingly overnight due to a potential lawsuit case) and a critically acclaimed debut that didn’t really match it commercially, it seems Santigold (real name Santi White) is ready for battle and the tracks we’ve heard already affirm this war stance in the face of the notorious ‘second album slump’.

    Age 37
    Peter Fox won the Bundesvision Song Contest 2009 on February 13 with his song "Schwarz zu blau" ("Black to Blue"), which is a social realistic representation of his home city Berlin and the transition from nightlife to dawn.
    More Details Hide Details The contest was held in Potsdam (the state capital of the previous year's winner Brandenburg). He has since announced that he will be returning to Seeed due to unwanted stress and attention generated by his highly successful solo album Stadtaffe.
