Today in Climate Maneuvering


Over at MoJo, our politics blog, we’ve had several updates today on climate-related machinations occurring in Congress or at the G20 summit in Pittsburgh. Check ’em out:

The Senate is about to vote on David Vitter’s amendment blocking the use of federal money for policy directives from the White House climate czar.

Is the G20 punting on climate funding for poor countries?

Obama made a big pitch to the G20 on cutting government subsidies to fossil fuels. But how far does he really want to go?

Murkowski’s attempted end-run around EPA regulation of greenhouse gases fails.

 

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
