Reid Bullish on Climate Bill

John Kerry is weirdly optimistic about passing climate and energy legislation this year. Now Harry Reid is calling for a bill ASAP. Might we actually see movement on legislation sometime soon?

Obama to CEOs: A Carbon Cap is Good for You

Barack Obama makes a business case for capping carbon pollution, telling CEOs that the rules will give them long-term certainty and a leg-up in international competition.

Vermont to Shut Down Leaking Nuclear Plant

The Obama administration may pushing for a nuclear renaissance, but up in Vermont, the state senate voted yesterday to close their lone, leaky nuclear plant amid fears that the owners have concealed information about plant safety.

Rockefeller Seeking Delay on EPA Climate Regs

West Virginia Democrat Jay Rockefeller indicated that he intends to introduce legislation to delay the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulation of greenhouse-gas emissions. While administrator Lisa Jackson earlier this week outlined a slower progression for regulations in response to concerns from Rockefeller and other Senate Democrats, he said that legislation is needed to “provide Congress the space it needs to craft a workable policy that will protect jobs and stimulate the economy.”

GREAT JOURNALISM, SLOW FUNDRAISING

Our team has been on fire lately—publishing sweeping, one-of-a-kind investigations, ambitious, groundbreaking projects, and even releasing “the holy shit documentary of the year.” And that’s on top of protecting free and fair elections and standing up to bullies and BS when others in the media don’t.

Yet, we just came up pretty short on our first big fundraising campaign since Mother Jones and the Center for Investigative Reporting joined forces.

So, two things:

1) If you value the journalism we do but haven’t pitched in over the last few months, please consider doing so now—we urgently need a lot of help to make up for lost ground.

2) If you’re not ready to donate but you’re interested enough in our work to be reading this, please consider signing up for our free Mother Jones Daily newsletter to get to know us and our reporting better. Maybe once you do, you’ll see it’s something worth supporting.
