Global Warming and the Energy Bill Federal law requires comprehensive reports on global warming every four years. Last year a lawsuit forced the Bush Administration to issue its first such document since it took office in 2001. Yesterday, the Obama White House updated that draft report with stronger language and ten "key findings."
Global Warming and the Energy Bill Federal law requires comprehensive reports on global warming every four years. Last year a lawsuit forced the Bush Administration to issue its first such document since it took office in 2001. Yesterday, the Obama White House updated that draft report with stronger language and ten "key findings." The report comprises dire warnings from thirteen federal agencies about the increasing impact of global warming. It's already changing ocean levels and weather patterns in the United States, with dramatic effects on water supplies, agriculture and human health. The report comes as Congress tackles a massive energy bill designed by supporters to slow and reduce the consequences of climate change. Is it too complex and expensive or too little to late? Will Republicans — and Democrats — water it down?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
