Guest editorial: Continuing to invest in pollution makes no cents

Posted on January 25, 2016 |
By James Ehlers



Our governor recently joined the growing call to divest public funds from coal and ExxonMobil. Some folks are asking why we should move away from these assets as the projections of future climate change impacts are still contentious. I believe the real question should be: Given the horrendous environmental impacts from the burning of fossil fuels that have already occurred and are still happening now, why have we stayed invested so long?

Editorial: A hotter world creates the climate for change

Posted on January 21, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



On Wednesday, scientists from NASA and NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) released duel studies showing 2015 as the warmest year on earth since 1880, the first year records were kept. NOAA had previously reported that 2015 was the second-warmest year for the continental United States, after 2012.

“The whole system is warming up relentlessly,” said Gerald A. Meehl, a scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

Editorial: Gov. Shumlin is right: divest

Posted on January 18, 2016 |
By Gov. Peter Shumlin



On Christmas Day, I burned brush on my farm in Putney – in a t-shirt. My experience was not unlike that of many Vermonters as we all lived through Vermont’s most tropical Christmas in memory, capping off the world’s warmest year on record. Climate change is here, and it is affecting the Vermont that we love, from our ski areas to our lakes. Now is the time to take every sensible action to combat it if we’re to have a shot at preserving a livable planet for our kids and grandkids.

Editorial: Obama: 'We live in a time of extraordinary change'

Posted on January 14, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the president’s final State of the Union address Tuesday night, he nailed what’s at the root of so much of the political angst riling the country: the rapid pace of change fueled by a global economy causing widespread job disruption among working-class Americans.

Editorial: A deluge of news

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The saying, “when it rains, it pours,” applies to more than weather. As well as warm temperatures, high winds and rain over the weekend, Addison County received a deluge of news last week as well.

Editorial: So, this is Trump?

Posted on January 7, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump brings his campaign to Burlington’s Flynn Theater this Thursday night to what is being reported as an over-sold affair, we thought it only appropriate to side with The Donald on one point —to dismiss with politically correct discourse — and follow his suggestion down the rabbit hole.

Editorial: Signs of progress for 2016

Posted on January 4, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



When selecting the top 10 stories of the prior year, our emphasis is placed on the stories’ importance to the area in the short-term and the long-term consequences. Thus, when Vermont Gas Systems and International Paper Corporation abandoned the natural gas line expansion through Middlebury, Cornwall and Shoreham, and the Phase 1 pipeline came under review by the Public Service Board, the impact on the broader Addison County community vaulted the issue into the prime spot.

Guest Editorial: Carbon tax borders on the silly, not the rational

Posted on December 21, 2015 |
By Sen. Joe Benning



The carbon tax debate has gotten silly. Partisans, touting economic collapse on one side and environmental calamity on the other, have resorted to an ancient tactic usually reserved for whipping up public support for war: Demonize the other side and paint them as being ignorant sub-humans. Vermonters are beginning to grow weary of this style of discourse.

Rail bridge project provides a reason to unite and rebel

Posted on December 17, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



It’s rare that any Vermont community would have cause to rebel against a state-sanctioned project that purports to benefit the town. In Middlebury, however, that time has come.
