      A Democratic National Committee panel stacked with progressive climate activists is pressing Joe Biden to back a plan to spend up to $16 trillion to speed the country away from fossil fuels, a call that could complicate his efforts to appeal to blue-collar voters in the swing states he needs to win in November.

      The plan from the DNC Council on the Environment and Climate Crisis, provided to POLITICO ahead of its release Thursday, also proposes to ban fracking and end sales of non-electric passenger cars by 2030.

      The proposal is designed to pressure the party and its presumptive presidential nominee to take an aggressive stance on climate change, an issue of prime importance for younger votes. But they go well beyond Biden’s own climate platform, which has called for spending $2 trillion — and they would offer President Donald Trump multiple openings to link Biden to the Democrats’ progressive and environmental wings.

      The panel’s chair countered that such ambitious proposals would resonate with Democratic voters.

      Check out Joe’s forehead.

      The global TV series about urbanism

      It’s no secret that cities are changing faster than ever. On all continents, in every city big or small, individuals and groups are taking the lead and bringing ideas to the streets. Together, they are creating modern, resilient cities focused on the vision of the humans who inhabit them.

      The Life-Sized City is a ground-breaking documentary series that explores the anatomy and vibrancy of the modern city, highlighting pockets of life-sized good­ness in cities around the world.

      Hosted by the boldly outspoken and charismatic Mikael Colville-Andersen, often referred to as the Anthony Bourdain of urbanism, the series reveals inspiring stories from everyday citizens yearning for change and urban renewal.

      Hi pademd,

      Sadly, all a waste of time.


      Grief requires us to know the time we're in. The great enemy of grief is hope. Hope is the four-letter word for people who are unwilling to know things for what they are.

      Our time requires us to be hope-free. To burn through the false choice of being hopeful and hopeless. They are two sides of the same con job. Grief is required to proceed.

      Sooner or later we all sit down to a banquet of consequences.
