The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), created more than a decade ago by Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic states, has contributed to the 60 percent reduction in carbon pollution from power plants in those states since 2005, while fueling the transition to a clean energy future. Smart investments in clean energy programs have been critical to the program’s success. With the nine current RGGI states having recently tightened the program’s limits on power plant pollution, and with New Jersey and Virginia aligning themselves with RGGI, it is important that the region invest revenue from the program in ways that move as quickly as possible toward a clean energy future.

A sea of corn or soybeans stretching across the horizon: this is the image of American farming ingrained in our collective imagination. Through advertisements and romantic odes to America’s heartland, we’ve been led to believe that this is a picture of an agricultural system that keeps us fed, healthy and secure. Yet, this image only depicts part of an American food landscape that increasingly threatens our environment, our health and ultimately our ability to feed ourselves.

The last two years have seen a reversal of fortune for consumer protection, resulting in new risks for consumers shopping for products in the financial marketplace and on store shelves.

To act on what may be the world’s last chance to prevent dangerous global warming, we need both to win “art of the possible” policies that can move the needle on carbon pollution immediately and to stretch our imaginations to the limit in search of answers that will turn the global economy toward zero-carbon solutions quickly enough to prevent the worst.
