    No more petrol or diesel cars, buses, or trucks will be sold anywhere in the world within eight years. The entire market for land transport will switch to electrification, leading to a collapse of oil prices and the demise of the petroleum industry as we have known it for a century. This is the futuristic forecast by Stanford University economist Tony Seba. His report, with the deceptively bland title Rethinking Transportation 2020-2030, has gone viral in green circles and is causing spasms of anxiety in the established industries. Seba’s premise is that people will stop driving altogether. They will switch...

    The 2020 presidential election could feature the most crowded Democratic primary in decades, with scores of Democrats rumored as potential contenders. The potential field could see some familiar faces as well as a mix of ambitious senators, governors and House members. But President Trump’s success as an outsider could also embolden more nontraditional candidates from the business and entertainment industries. With no clear leader, the 2020 field should be a change from 2016, when Democrats had a small field of candidates, including front-runner Hillary Clinton. Here are 43 possible candidates who could take on Trump in 2020: Former Vice President...
  • Students fear new Chick-fil-A will create unsafe space on campus

    Students at Duquesne University are petitioning their school to reconsider a plan to bring Chick-fil-A to campus, arguing the fast-food restaurant’s support for traditional marriage would create an unsafe environment for gay students. . . . Rachel Coury, president of the Duquesne gay-straight alliance, said she fears Chick-fil-A will roll back efforts to create a safe environment for gay students on campus. “I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ+ community,” Ms. Coury told The Duke. “So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A … maybe people will feel that...
  • Millennials don’t act like adults until they are 30 (or even 40), research finds

    Previous generations thought of themselves as adults by the time they were 22 or 23 – but for millennials, that moment comes much, much later. Many millennials don’t act like adults until 30 – and some don’t live a ‘grown up’ lifestyle until the age of 40. Many youngsters have delayed moving out of their parents’ home, and put off getting jobs – driven in part by the global economic downturn, but in part by the tolerance of their parents. David Poltrack of CBS said that while the idea is ‘controversial,’ ‘Their baby boomer parents have really coddled them. They’ve...

    Fresh off a defeat on U.S. healthcare legislation, the White House warned rebellious conservative lawmakers that they should get behind President Donald Trump's agenda or he may bypass them on future legislative fights, including tax reform. The threat by White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to build a broad coalition on tax reform that could include moderate Democrats came as the Republican head of the tax-writing committee in the House of Representatives said he hoped to move a tax bill through his panel this spring. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady said his committee had been working...

    In a clash with President Trump's environmental team, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has declared that climate change is a threat to national security and one military planners must consider in drawing up strategies. According to a report from ProPublica, Mattis told Democratic senators that climate change is real and "can be a driver of instability." His position, at odds with President Trump and his Environmental Protection Agency chief, came in answers to questions from senators following his confirmation hearing. They were released to ProPublica which reached out to the White House and Pentagon for comment without success. _____________________________________________ Andy Revkin...

    President Trump scolded conservative groups speaking out about the Republican plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare, a report on Thursday said. “This is going to be great. You’re going to make it even greater. I’m going to work hard to get it done,” Trump told the gathering of conservative leaders this week, CNN reported, citing sources who attended the hour-long meeting. He also warned the groups — including the Club for Growth, the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks and the Tea Party Patriots — that they “are helping the other side” with their remarks about the GOP plan, which...

    Despite pushback from several conservative think tanks and Republican lawmakers, White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway says President Donald Trump is “very confident” the GOP’s Obamacare replacement bill will pass. “President Trump is very confident about the passage of the American Health Care Act for many reasons,” Conway told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer on Wednesday. “Just yesterday, here in the White House, he and the vice president invited in 35 or so whips from the House to discuss this very issue.” The Trump adviser made the comment after Hemmer pointed out that much of the opposition to the House GOP...

The trans E! reality star, 67, who backed Trump in the election, published a series of videos and posts on social media on Thursday, February 23, slamming the former Apprentice host for backtracking on the promises he made. “Well @realDonaldTrump, from one Republican to another, this is a disaster. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me,” Jenner tweeted. In an Instagram video, the former Olympic athlete, who famously announced she was transitioning from Bruce to Caitlyn...

The Left is furious that Trump is considering chiefly military men, slandering them as "cereal killers." Gen.

    White House press secretary Sean Spicer called on McCain to apologize for his comments. "The life of chief Ryan Owens was done in service to his country and we owe him and his family a great debt for the information we received during that raid. Any suggestion otherwise is a disservice to his courageous life and the actions he took. Full stop," Spicer said. The senator rejected a call Wednesday from White House press secretary Sean Spicer to apologize for his remarks. "I don't need to listen to that. My record speaks for itself," he said.

    Los Angeles — Liberals used to hate secession, the notion that states could leave the Union as they did before the Civil War because they didn’t agree with the policies of the federal government. But with Donald Trump’s election, many California liberals suddenly have warm words for a budding ballot initiative that has just begun collecting signatures in order to place secession, or “Calexit,” on the ballot. At the height of the tea-party movement, Texas governor Rick Perry merely hinted at the thought that Texas might react to President Obama’s executive overreach by reclaiming its one-time status as an independent...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Shia LaBeouf wants you to know: “He will not divide us.” For the first few days of Donald Trump’s presidency, the actor has been repeating that sentence into a live camera mounted on a wall outside a New York City museum, usually with a backdrop of everyday New Yorkers chanting and singing along. The livestream from outside the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens is for a participatory public art project LaBeouf and two collaborators intend to have running for the duration of Trump’s presidency. The camera went live the morning of the inauguration, along...
