News, Information, and Opinion of Interest to CSGA

“What are we in for next?” asks the narrator on the YouTube video. “Will the temperature resume an upward trend? Will it remain flat for a lengthy period? Or will it begin to drop? No one knows, not even the biggest, fastest computers.” The video — with the clickbait title “What They Haven’t Told You about Climate Change” — has been watched more than 2.5 million times on the Google-owned video platform.

It’s hard for anyone to miss a “help wanted” sign like this: “13,000 Union Workers Needed for Atlantic Coast Pipeline Project.” That’s how the website Oilfield Job Shop described the opportunities created by the $7 billion Atlantic Coast pipeline, planned to carry shale gas 605 miles from West Virginia into Virginia and North Carolina. Its builders, a group led by Dominion Energy, say all told, the project will support 17,000 jobs — no small amount of work anywhere, but especially in parts of West Virginia where the economy has long relied on coal mining. So, when high school students working with PBS NewsHour's Student Reporting Labs in Morgantown, West Virginia, set out to find out what “opportunity” looks like in 2019, they quickly zoomed in on pipeline jobs.

Widely dismissed as a symbolic victory in 2015, the blocking of a major pipeline project has forced Canada's oil patch to limit its output, vindicating activists.

A lawsuit filed on behalf of 21 kids alleges the U.S. government knowingly failed to protect them from climate change. If the plaintiffs win, it could mean massive changes for the use of fossil fuels.

That activists’ conversations with Democrats — and Republicans — have borne actual fruit should be instructive as they try to gin up more support for the Green New Deal.

The board said the plan proposed by congressional Democrats falls short. Readers had thoughts.

Gov. Tim Walz announced a plan Monday morning for making Minnesota's electricity entirely free from fossil fuels by 2050.

The federal government spends billions of dollars each year helping communities rebuild after disasters and to prevent future damage. But that money isn't always allocated to those who need it most.

Following the release of the Fourth National Climate Assessment, the Trump administration is proposing to give four top climate-polluting industries a pass. Six rollbacks will cause an annual increase of more than 200 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, result in the loss of hundreds of billions of dollars in forgone benefits, and lead to tens of thousands of premature deaths.

Polling and public opinion analyst Dan Cox said in an interview that aired Tuesday on "What America's Thinking" that Republicans and Democrats are most divided on the issue of climate change.

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh says a coalition of nine states that joined a federal lawsuit in December to prevent underwater seismic testing in the Atlantic Ocean is asking a judge to halt the practice while the case proceeds.
