Truth and un-slanted journalism is its most vital role.

How Fox News continues to publish shows how far the Right will go to distort the facts.

Great solar news for the world.

In Jan. 2015, Saudi Arabian company ACWA Power surprised industry analysts when it won a bid to build a 200-megawatt solar power plant in Dubai ... More »

No, as he Praises Arizona for a job well done - so far, that is. The problem is that two of the biggest electric utilities are now in the process of gravely impeding the solar energy expansion -- and he makes no mention of this vital new fact!!!

If SRP & APS Utilities get their rate increases on those using Solar Power there will be a huge problem for Solar gains into the future.

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to shine a light on the state that is not only sunnier than the rest but knows how to harness the power of those rays, too. More »

Wish Biden had prepared to run, not sure I can vote for her. Interesting that she plans to use Twitter as a major information venue.

But Iowa, where Clinton finished third behind Barack Obama and former Senator John Edward in the early caucus in 2008, has been seen as a potential weak spot for a campaign ... More »

Thankfully he's okay and out of Iraq. I'd have thought Iraq was beyond these threats.

These statements very severely put any possibility of an agreement in June in doubt. Not just the sanction issue but the depth of inspections have been called into question!

“All sanctions should be removed when the deal is signed. If the sanctions removal depends on other processes, then why did we start the negotiations?” Khamenei ... More »

Indeed it is good journalism when you reverse sweep an item of news that is being ignored, "Swept under the rug" so to speak and bring it to the forefront. For the gross injustice to the poor, in mass, of late by the republicans is horrid and just gets worse every day.

There better be a lot of backlash in the 2016 elections as hurt the poor is going way to far!!!

I do not like the man but at this moment in time he is the best for the Republicans in Arizona, but not the best for the whole of Arizona.

Very complete with quotes from all the major players in the area. Links are sadly lacking...

Very good complete picture, now the hardest road is ahead to get an agreement by July, one can really hope.

Obama described the agreement as an “historic understanding with Iran”. He compared it with nuclear arms control deals struck by his predecessors – ... More »
