  1. -01 China Plans Ban on Coal by 2020 (Huffington Post)
      "China's smog-plagued capital has announced plans to ban the use of coal by the end of 2020 as the country fights deadly levels of pollution, especially in major cities."

      Editor's Note: The United States is a major exporter of coal to China. If China and the United States both convert their coal-fired power stations to biomass pyrolysis stations, we may be able to REVERSE the amount of CO2 in the air. Biomass (decaying vegetation) is, by far, the largest contributor of CO2 to the air, far greater a source than human activities. Pyrolysis allows the carbon in decaying vegetation to be converted to a solid carbon instead of CO2. Also try Coal Power to Biomass. 09-14

  2. -08-09-14 Editorial: Nixon's Liberal Legacy (Time.com)
      "By any definition, Nixon and the Congress achieved a spectacular liberal domestic agenda between 1969 and 1974. 'The War President' was really Lyndon Johnson: The Next Generation, lowering defense spending and pushing Johnson’s commitment to the Great Society. During Nixon’s Presidency, the government slashed its defense budget’s share of the GDP by more than 50% and raised social welfare programs by two-thirds; as Rauch notes, “this was a staggering change to have made in only six years.” Food-stamp benefits, welfare assistance, the minimum wage: they all went up under Nixon." 08-14
