With brazen falsehoods and pugilistic interruptions, +DonaldJTrump  fell far short of scraping together the presidential persona some believed (or hoped) he had been hiding from us all along, despite Kellyanne Conway’s best efforts.

+Hillary Clinton  on the other hand, was above the fray. She was calm and confident, polite and thoughtful, specific and on-message. She even looked to be having a good deal of fun throughout the debate, perhaps because it was painfully obvious how lopsided these 90 minutes were toward her.
By Alex Samuels “When they go low, we go high.” Michelle Obama’s already-iconic words from the DNC are still echoing throughout the 2016 presidential race, and never before have they been so apropos as during the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. With brazen falsehoods and pugilistic interruptions, Trump fell far short [&hellip

I've heard millennials say there's not much difference between +Hillary Clinton and +DonaldJTrump on climate change. They couldn't be more wrong. Trump would be a DISASTER for the climate - in just the latest, he's appointing a well-known energy lobbyist and climate denier to head his EPA transition team.
"Ebell is a well-known and polarizing figure in the energy and environment realm. His participation in the EPA transition signals that the Trump team is looking to drastically reshape the climate policies the agency has pursued under the Obama administration. Ebell’s role is likely to infuriate environmentalists and Democrats but buoy critics of Obama’s climate rules."

“Clearly, Governor Brown hopes to short-circuit the water board,,, It is a Hail Mary pass on behalf of the water contractors in which “voluntary agreements” become a water grab from all the rivers of the Central Valley. It is a shame that Governor Brown does not recognize the true environmental and economic value of a healthy San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary, and only the value of water exported for profit"
By Dan Bacher As The Winnemem Wintu Tribe proceed on their historic 300-mile long Run4Salmon from Vallejo to the McCloud River, Governor Jerry Brown is calling for the expediting of river flow agreements in order to fill his $60 billion Delta Tunnels for exporting more water to corporate agribusiness interests and Southern California water agencies. “State Water Board staff recently released a [&hellip

+Hillary Clinton has a detailed $275 billion five-year plan, but it's not enough. +DonaldJTrump proposes $1 trillion in "spending and leverage" with no detail, and it depends on his self-declared ability to make good deals, tremendous deals, better than anybody else’s deals.

Conor Dougherty reported Sunday that economists—at least the liberal ones—hope that the candidates’ support will finally break through the resistance in Congress to tackling the embarrassing and costly problems caused by the rotten and obsolete infrastructure of the richest nation on the planet
By Meteor Blades Both Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump have laid out plans for tens of billions to be spent on restoring America’s infrastructure as well as innovating some modernization. Clinton’s $275 billion, five-year plan, not surprisingly, contains solid detail. In place of specifics, Trump’s plan, which proposes $1 trillion in spending and leverage over the same period, depends, as you [&hellip

"The religion of inequality—of money and power—has failed us; its gods are false gods. There is something more essential—more profound—in the American experience than the hyena’s appetite. Once we recognize and nurture this, once we honor it, we can reboot democracy and get on with the work of liberating the country we carry in our hearts."
By Meteor Blades Sometimes, an excerpt—even a long one —simply doesn’t do justice to an essay. Since that is the case with Bill Moyers’ piece “We, the Plutocrats vs. We, the People—Saving the Soul of Democracy,” first published by TomDispatch, I’m only providing the link along with his ending paragraph. I know some of you may click that link and upon [&hellip

If Democrats have a chance at recapturing the House Colorado’s 6th District is a must-win. Coffman is running away from Trump, for now, and he’s running scared... from Morgan Carroll
#carrollforcolorado  
by RL Miller The New York Times profiles pandering Mike Coffman (R-CO-06), and it’s not pretty. Immigrant-hating Coffman, who once co-sponsored a bill to make English the official language of the United States, is now cozying up to Hispanics and promising to stand up to Donald Trump — as long as it’s politically expedient to do [&hellip

+Lastweek Tonight's #JohnOliver: “The point is this: the campaign has been dominated by scandals, but it is dangerous to think there is an equal number on both sides,” he said before warning, “You can be irritated by some of +Hillary Clinton’s. That is understandable, but you should be f*cking outraged by +DonaldJTrump's.”

(Oh, and keep in mind: They would have torn +Bernie Sanders apart like a pack of rabid dogs, too.)
By Jeremy Bloom John Oliver takes a look at Hillary’s many mini-scandals that have been pushed for the past year, and sees… there’s actually nothing there. A bunch of ginned-up stuff that sounds bad, but actually… isn’t. And then he looks at Trump. “Bear in mind: we know nothing about Trump’s finances, and that is [&hellip

Restore the Delta said the California WaterFix will require a taxpayer subsidy totaling $6.5, in stark contrast to ten years of public statements that all construction and mitigation costs would be paid by water users.

The secret services has to take out +Zach Galifianakis when he "Just tries to scare" +Hillary Clinton on "Between Two Ferns." Funny or die!
By Jeremy Bloom Never mind the medical records, this is just what the doctor ordered. After a messy and awkward week on the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton chills out on the silly and awkward ‘Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis’. There are no questions about climate change, of course, although Zach does point out that for many [&hellip

"The rackets and swindles unleashed in our futile quest to keep up appearances have disabled the financial operating system that the regime depends on. It’s all an illusion sustained by accounting fraud to conceal promises that won’t be kept.
"All the mighty efforts of central bank authorities to borrow “wealth” from the future in the form of “money” — to “paper over” the absence of growth — will not conceal the impossibility of paying that borrowed money back. The future’s revenge for these empty promises will be the disclosure that the supposed wealth is not really there — especially as represented in currencies, stock shares, bonds, and other ephemeral “instruments” designed to be storage vehicles for wealth."

" Donald J. Trump Trump offers incoherent rhetoric in opposition to the current dismal order of things; Hillary Clinton offers empty, pandering rhetoric in defense of that order. Together, Trump vs Clinton represents an epic national drive toward political suicide."

"Today we still have deniers spewing their lies. We still have delayers telling us we musn’t move too fast or it will wreck the economy, even though unfettered climate change will wreck it a lot faster and more thoroughly than transforming our energy, transportation and agriculture systems. We now have despairers who tell us, yeah, climate change is bad news but it’s too late to do anything about it. They’re all wrong."
Arctic temperature changes are an omen of climate change. Arctic sea ice helps tamp down temps all over the planet - and it's disappearing.

Story
Tagline
Living green in the great Northwest
Introduction
Jeremy Bloom has been living green since before it was cool. And writing about it.

His publication credits range from Playboy to Parenting, and he recently composed content for an exhibit on climate change at the new California Academy of Sciences museum in San Francisco. He’s been a senior editor for a monthly magazine, and written three screenplays (not, as of yet, produced).

He likes to take a hands-on approach to life, so he also has mucked about in cobb, planted organic strawberry beds, created raw-food meals, done green carpentry, milked sheep, served as deputy campaign manager for a congressional race, helped run music festivals, dug into archeological sites in Israel and the arctic, white-water rafted down rivers in Thailand and the Adirondacks, gone skin-diving in the Red Sea, and danced until dawn in an old-growth redwood forest.

He lives in Eugene, Oregon with his wife Lyra and two cats, Navi and Sylvanus.
