Debate: Revise or repeal Obama’s agenda?

Speech omitted looming entitlement crisis
Unbelievable. President Obama, among the most divisive presidents in our recent history, gives an also divisive State of the Union speech, taking credit for things he did not do, producing a laundry list of mostly bad things he plans and at the end sounding oh, so nice. This country of ours? We’re a “tight-knit family.” Republicans? He wants to get along with them.

Let’s hope Joe Paterno hears the good news
I hope there’s a wire service in the afterlife. I hope there’s some celestial Internet cafe where the departed (regardless of their ultimate destinations) can access news about those of us they’ve left behind.

For too long, carbon dioxide has dominated the discussion of greenhouse gases; for the most part, it has been the discussion. That gas, emitted by the burning of fossil fuels, is, after all, the biggie in terms of volume. But this single-minded approach has meant that the so-called short-lived gases have been all but overlooked, and that’s a mistake.

Keystone XL comeback after vote, veto?
The U.S. Senate launched its first great debate of 2015 last week, on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would carry oil from the tar sands of Alberta to the refineries of Texas. Predictably, the rhetoric was apocalyptic.
