[With fond viewer memories of the late Ned Sherrin and David Frost]
It is so difficult in this breathless, breaking-news-tweet-every-moment era to put matters in perspective.
We are going to give this a shot in a brief look back at clean-air events during the week past. This is not meant by any means to be all-encompassing, so please forgive any omissions.
Oops – carbon emissions have crept up! Perhaps the best news for the White House in this Energy Department report was that it came out on Friday. http://1.usa.gov/19IGPMM
Sure, it showed encouraging trends for renewable energy, but it also showed energy-related carbon emissions went up during the first six months of this year, the second year in a row, up 6% since 2012. That’s not how the “narrative” is supposed to go! As The Washington Post put it, “The Obama administration appears to be losing ground in its efforts to cut U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases.” http://wapo.st/1pBXkCb
