This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Nov. 19, 2014 for week ending Nov. 28, 2014

"The bar is set really low for the United States, so the fact that President Obama does anything that indicates in any way that he's serious about climate change and the United States is serious about climate change is a cause for applause around the world, whether or not that's commensurate with need, with science ... and climate justice demands."

– Interview with Karen Orenstein, senior international policy analyst with the environmental group Friends of the Earth, on the recent U.S.-China announcement and carbon reduction target

New U.S. -China Carbon Targets Fall Short of Reductions Needed to Avert Climate Change Disaster

MP3 Interview with Karen Orenstein, senior international policy analyst with the environmental group Friends of the Earth, conducted by Scott Harris

uschina

Just one week after the Democratic Party suffered a string of mid-term election defeats including losing control of the U.S. Senate, President Obama made a joint announcement with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing outlining a plan to reduce the carbon emissions of both nations with the goal of boosting the chances for a successful international climate agreement in Paris in December 2015.  Story continues

Six Years After 2008 Campaign Pledge, President Obama Pushes for Net Neutrality

MP3 Interview with Craig Aaron, president/CEO of the media reform group Free Press, conducted by Scott Harris

netneutrality

In an unexpected announcement from the White House, President Obama issued a statement on Nov. 10 declaring his public support for net neutrality, a principle that all traffic on the Internet should be treated equally, where individuals and small start-up companies will have their content delivered to the public at the same speed as powerful, wealthy corporations. In a videotaped statement the president said, “We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas.” The president now advocates placing regulation of the Internet under Title II of the Telecommunications Act, the same set of rules governing telecommunication utilities like landline telephones.  Story continues
