The Guardian view on Greens in Europe: hopeful signs | Editorial

An enlarged Green group in the European parliament would drive climate policy forward, and prove that the activism of recent months has been effectiveIt is an ill wind that blows no one any good. Even the buffeting by the gale of rightwing nationalist parties in the European elections has a bracing message: that the environment is back on the political agenda. Recent months have seen a dramatic rise in the profile of green issues, following last year’s warning from the UN that the window of oppo...

U.S. House Passes First Climate Bill in Nearly a Decade

Approved by a 231-190 vote, H.R. 9 has little chance of passing the Republican-controlled Senate and has provoked a veto threat from the White House. The measure, which would bar the Trump administration from using any taxpayer funds to withdraw from the Paris climate accord signed by then-President Barack Obama in 2015, represents an attempt by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other party leaders to unify Democrats on a global warming response, an issue that has strife within the party over how to res...

Biden Unbound, on Foreign Policy

I’ve been publishing a series of emails about Joe Biden and his candidacy. Here I want to share something different. It’s an window into his candidacy and potential presidency. Back in 2004 I was writing an article for The Atlantic about John Kerry’s foreign policy. I did a range of interviews for that piece and one of them was with then-Senator Biden, in his office one evening up on Capitol Hill. It was loose and unstructured. When you talk with Biden he’s thinking out loud, discussing ideas, n...

How to respond to Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK | Letters

Readers air their views on news that the US president will be given the red-carpet treatment during a three-day visit from 3 JuneOn the same day that Trump’s state visit to the UK is announced (May under fire for allowing Trump state visit during D-day celebrations, 24 April), I see that Michael Bloomberg has stepped in to personally cover the $4.5m shortfall resulting from his country’s withdrawal from the Paris agreement. So that got me thinking… Why don’t we have a people’s state visit on exa...

Ending Sats for primary schools would not mean the end of civilisation | John Crace

Jeremy Corbyn’s pledge to change the way pupils are tested has been met with predictable outrageFor much of the evening, I sat at home watching the news channels as Notre Dame burned. A compulsive mixture of horror and disbelief as centuries of history and culture went up in flames. Even its partial loss diminishes us all. But I was also struck by how emotionally caught up I was in the fire, even though I had never actually been inside the building, as on previous trips to Paris the queues to ge...

Some thoughts on dressing for battle

Eva Hagberg Fisher’s piece on the nuances of dressing for the public scrutiny of fighting sexual harassment has really stuck with me. Over the last year and a half, I have needed a lot of outfits. I have also needed to be consistent. I have needed to be ready, at every moment, to be seen as both a poverty-stricken graduate student and a reliable adult. As an accuser, I need to be a news-team-ready correspondent and someone who certainly wasn’t doing this for the limelight. I didn’t know any ...
