The greenest president?* Cast your vote here!

Environmental Economics

Max Aufhammer ( The Future is at Stake ): The past eight years of the Obama presidency have brought monumental change for the better in the environmental and energy arena. President Obama will go into the history books as the first African American president. I would argue that he will be remembered by many future generations as the Greenest president this country has ever had. So now that we know the nominees, who do you think is the greenest President in U.S.

President Obama joins the Pigou Club*

Environmental Economics

Brad Plumer: It's the last year of President Obama's presidency. He doesn't have to stand for reelection. Congress isn't going to pass any of his proposals anyway. So he may as well dream big. That's one way to read  this new idea Obama's putting forward: He's suggesting that Congress slap a $10-per-barrel tax on oil, phased in over five years, in order to fund $300 billion worth of investments in "clean transportation" over the next decade.

President Obama's blackmail threat over EU Referendum

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Obama said that Brexit would put UK at ‘back of the queue’ for trade deal in huge EU Referendum intervention However, someone on social media mentioned that the Americans do not, per se, use the term queue and thus it would appear that the text was written by the UK government and given to the US President to use. The US President has no right to interfere in the affairs of this country unless Britain is not a sovereign nation but just a US colony.
