The Washington Post

Clinton and the Democrats need to get more specific in this campaign season about how their plans to adjust the global thermostat will not only improve the weather, but also what it will mean for everyone’s pocketbook.

Obama didn't just take on Trump.

Even though the president took a pass on launching into an immediate faux celebration about the COP 21 agreement, there is plenty of time for his climate change victory lap.

Republicans oppose Obama’s climate plan because it won’t work, and it won’t work because Republicans oppose Obama’s climate plan.

Talking about COP21 and the alleged "settled science" of climate change would just be off-message for the Republican presidential candidates.

It's likely there will be a lot of talk at COP21 about the United States implementing measures that will be economically harmful - resulting in higher power bills for average Americans and less reliable energy – while other countries just make promises to think about making changes sometime in the future.

At home and abroad, President Obama’s quest for a legacy isn’t going so well. What does that mean for 2016?

Shouldn't we expect more than misdirected effort?
