What’s Next for Climate Policy?


Wondering what’s going on with the climate bill? Come back here at 7 p.m. EST tonight for a live video feed from a panel on that subject hosted by Planet Forward at The George Washington University. The event will feature Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa P. Jackson as the headliner.

I will also be participating in a panel discussion of the subject, along with Andy Revkin of the New York Times, Jim Connaughton of Constellation Energy Group and the former head of the Council on Environmental Quality under George W. Bush, Dr. Dan Lashof of the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Ana Unruh-Cohen of the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming. Frank Sesno, a former CNN anchor and director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at The George Washington University, will moderate.

If you live in Washington, D.C. you should come by. If not, you can come back here to watch the event live at 7. We’ll also be live-Tweeting the event here.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
