Armed Conflicts & Environmental Politics

Davenport, Coral, and Parker, Ashley. "Environment Is Grabbing Big Role in Ads for Campaigns." The New York Times. The New York Times 21 October 2014. Web. 9 November 2014.

Political advertising focused on climate change, energy, and environmental issues overwhelmed the pre-midterm election campaigns. Surging past a record level of 125,000 ad spots on the Senate side in October 2014, these campaigns reflect the interests and priorities of wealthy donors for both parties. Indeed, the environment and energy ranked as the third most popular topic mentioned in political ads, with healthcare and jobs running first and second. Wealthy donors showing their partisan hands include Thomas F. Steyer, the liberal California environmental activist billionaire, and Charles G. Koch and David H. Koch, billionaire conservative right-wingers.

Political pundits see the popularity of environmental issues as a harbinger of the 2016 presidential race. The ad campaigns demonstrate the underlying tension between jobs and the environment and the capacity of the issues to polarize the American people. A primary concern is that...


Like the proverbial canary in the cage, the stark inability of a large swath of the American people to grasp the short-sightedness of ignoring carbon pollution is a sign of deep problems with voter perspective.

Winesmay, Michael. "Environmental Groups Focus on Change by Strengthening Their Political Operations." The New York Times. The New York Times 31 May 2014. WEB. 8 November 2014.

Environmental groups say they are conducting more aggressive activism in this election cycle than they have in decades. Groups like the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council have built stronger grassroots network, political liaisons, and political operations. These efforts are driven by the recognition that the climate-change movement stalled and that urgency to put the issue front and center in all forthcoming campaigns has necessarily increased. The new unified effort is exemplified by the Climate Action Coalition, which will be backed by huge sums of money for cable television and online ads.

The biggest challenge the new environmental activists face is convincing a job hungry American demos that green strategies can support employment, given some allowance for run up to full production of green industries. The American public suffers from a lack of imagination and confidence in future technologies. The shuttering slow down of environmental activism mirrors…

It is not immediately clear who is responsible for the explosions that took place on November 7, 2014, in the Gaza strip. The explosions occurred just days before the 10th anniversary celebration of the death of Yasir Arafat, the leader of the Fatah, the mainstream Palestinian party currently led by President Mahmoud Abbas. The last such rally occurred in 2007, at the time of the celebration of the third anniversary of Arafat's death, when six Fatah supporters were killed and many others were wounded when they clashed with Hamas members.

Hamas officially condemned the recent bombings and set its Gaza security forces in motion to investigate. However, the timing of the explosions does not lend credibility to Hamas' condemnation. This skepticism about Hamas' actual position is strengthened by the fact that the car of Fayez Abu Aitah, a Fatah spokesman, was destroyed in a blast. Just days earlier, Aitah had strongly criticized Hamas, citing his efforts of incitement and damaging national interests through critical remarks aimed at the functioning of the Palestinian Authority government.

I wonder if the overexposure to information, and the need to constantly keep in touch with our virtual 'friends' has made us respect language less. In communicating through text messaging, using shorthand is a necessity, not even laziness. Our language seems poorer than that of previous generations, and I wonder if the way we think will also change -- we may be quicker and more tolerant of new ideas
