It's easy to demonstrate when it's 75 and sunny. Try this stunt in the middle of a New England winter.

They protested, and they also used the plant's electrical power for their laptops, their lights, their TVs, an god knows what else (probably their vapes).

Cut electrical service to all the protestor's homes and businesses (not just the ones arrested). That should reduce carbon emissions.

They arrested 67 of them. Big deal. How about prosecuting all 67 of them instead of slapping their wrists? No penalty equals more crime.

The cover story New York published this week centers on the stories of women and men who came forward about sexual abuse and harassment — and one who has not yet done so. In the issue, a woman who says former U.S. senator Al Franken groped her buttocks at an event in 2006 explains why she’s kept silent until now, and why she still fears using her name. “I was just out of college in my first job, working for U.S. senator Patty Murray,” she told New York. Franken, then exploring a run for the Senate, was the guest speaker

Have you ever sat down in a restaurant and felt instantly drawn to a particular dish on the menu? The reason might be something as simple as that you love the dish’s main ingredient, but it’s often more than that. It could be the item’s placement on the menu, its name, even whom you saw eating it as you crossed the restaurant. Understanding all the factors that attract us to certain foods is a growing area of research, with enormous potential for addressing something unexpected: climate change. Agriculture — and the changes in land-use it necessitates — accounts for about 25% of

Cruise ships are big business for port cities around the world. But starting next year, Cannes, one of the world's most famous ports-of-call, will no longer welcome them unless they comply with strict pollution controls. Passengers who choose to sail on dirty vessels will have to disembark elsewhere. So far, the industry doesn't seem worried. It should be. Increasingly, consumers are voicing concerns about the environmental effects of their travel and pressuring companies that don't meet their heightened standards. In Europe, "flight shaming" has dented airlines’ earnings as travelers look for low-carbon alternatives. The cruise industry, far less necessary to

BIDDEFORD, Maine — Former Democratic President Bill Clinton and former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are pining for the days when the two parties worked together. The two appeared together to talk about strengthening America’s commitment to education on Friday at the University of New England.

A collection of luxury cars seized from Equatorial Guinea’s vice president, Teodorin Obiang Nguema, will be auctioned off in Switzerland and are estimated to bring in 18.5m Swiss francs ($18.7m). “This is an exceptional sale,” Philip Kantor, of British auctioneers Bonhams, told AFP. “It’s a private collection of supercars, with very low mileage.” Among the cars to go under the hammer at a Geneva golf club on Sunday are seven Ferraris, three Lamborghinis, five Bentleys, a Maserati and a McLaren. The most expensive lots are a Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, valued at between 4.8m and 5.7m euros ($5.2-6.2m) and a yellow

New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady is one of the most accomplished and decorated NFL stars of all time, but Kyle Kusz, an associate professor of kinesiology at the University of Rhode Island has a much different take on the 42-year-old. According to Campus Reform, Kusz does not think Brady's popularity stems from his six Superbowl titles but instead due to white supremacy and white male rage. In Kusz's book, titled Making American White Men Great Again: Tom Brady, Donald Trump, and the Allure of White Male Omnipotence in Post-Obama America, he details his beliefs regarding Brady's fame.

A new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows a majority of Americans do not think President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office. Only 37% of respondents think the president should be impeached and removed, while 57% do not. In a clear partisan divide, 4% of Republicans and 73% of Democrats surveyed support impeachment. Those who responded against impeachment include 95% of Republicans surveyed and 21% of Democrats. The poll was conducted between Sept. 19 and 23, just as Trump was in the thick of a controversy after news of a whistleblower complaint from within the intelligence community

DENVER — The press office for Colorado's liberal Democratic governor, Jared Polis, is facing criticism after asking two small-town newspapers to take down an online news story reported by what it calls a biased news organization affiliated with the conservative Koch family. The Kiowa County Press in Eads and The Chronicle-News in Trinidad refused Polis spokesman Conor Cahill's request this month to "unpublish" the story, a straightforward account about a new state office dedicated to the future of labor that Chicago-based The Center Square wrote. Cahill didn't ask for a correction but objected to the group's affiliations and said the story

Having his morning coffee and cigarette outside a Starbucks in one of the most politically contested counties in the United States, Richard Sibilla recoils at the memory of President Donald Trump's election. But impeach him now? Sibilla can see little upside. (Snip) A Reuters/Ipsos poll taken on Monday and Tuesday showed 37% of respondents favored impeaching the president versus 45% who were opposed. That 37% figure was down from 41% three weeks earlier and down from 44% in May, after the release of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

President Trump's campaign announced it will hold a rally in Minneapolis next month in an attempt to flip the historically blue state in his favor ahead of the 2020 elections, a move that would take his "Keep America Great" message to the district of one of his most vocal critics in Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar. The announcement of the rally, set for Oct. 10 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, signaled Trump's determination to flip the state's 10 electoral votes which no Republican has won since then-President Richard Nixon took the state in 1972. Trump came closest in 2016, falling

The "OK" hand gesture has been added to an expanding list of hate symbols used by white supremacists. The Anti-Defamation League announced dozens of new additions to its database on Thursday. The hand symbol began as a hoax by users of the website 4chan before turning into a popular trolling tactic, according to the Anti-Defamation League. By this year, it had evolved into a gesture embraced "in some circles as a sincere expression of white supremacy," the civil rights group said. The suspect in the New Zealand massacre last March flashed the symbol during his court appearance in March after

One of the greatest public services President Donald Trump has done for the nation is forcing institutions and people to reveal their true character. While this has been the most valuable when it comes to the media, it has also been valuable when it comes to unmasking globalist Republicans. This was again on display this week, most notably in the revelation that Paul Ryan was inciting Fox News from his position on the board of Fox Corporation to "decisively break" with President Trump.
