Ahead of Exxon's annual meeting, climate activists gain ground

Shareholder activists focused on climate issues are gaining traction in their push to have large energy companies and utilities take account of the impact rising global temperatures could have on their businesses. Proponents ranging from giant New York and California state pension funds to Wespath Investment Management of Illinois scored a number of victories this month. The PPL result comes on the heels of a vote at Occidental Petroleum Corp on a similar resolution, backed by two-thirds of votes cast.

This Is How Republicans Treated Hillary Clinton When She Was Accused Of Mishandling Sensitive Information

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); During the 2016 election campaign, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton received a slew of criticism from Republicans who said she wasn’t qualified to be president because she used a private email server during her time heading the State Department. Their tough criticism of the former secretary of state could haunt them in the wake of a Washington Post report that said President Donald Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian officials during a meeting in the White House last week. The information Trump relayed to the Russians had been provided to the U.S. by a partner in an intelligence-sharing arrangement, according to The Washington Post. While it did not concern specific intelligence sources and methods, his alleged disclosure could compromise the U.S.’s relationship with that partner. The president has the authority to declassify information at will, so Trump’s actions are not illegal, as he noted on Twitter Tuesday. But Republicans who called Clinton “reckless” may find themselves in an awkward position in the wake of Trump’s admission. Trump himself got in on the criticism in July, saying Clinton was “not fit” to be president. Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team "were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information." Not fit!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 6, 2016 House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) was one of Clinton’s biggest critics, tweeting at least once a month from July to November about what he called “reckless” and “downright dangerous” actions. It's simple: Individuals who are ‘extremely careless’ w/ classified info should be denied further access to it. https://t.co/XWuvfDugly— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) July 7, 2016 The American people need to know what accountability Sec. Clinton will face for her mishandling of classified info. https://t.co/Wrge2UkvAL— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) July 27, 2016 It’s no small matter to hand over classified info to a person as reckless w/ national security info as Sec. Clinton. https://t.co/Wrge2UC6Zl— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) August 31, 2016 The documents from the FBI demonstrate Hillary Clinton's reckless & downright dangerous handling of classified info. pic.twitter.com/6tgRJTEOB0— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) September 2, 2016 I renew my call for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings for Secretary Clinton. https://t.co/NgzMLP6lsg— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) October 29, 2016 These documents further demonstrate Secretary Clinton's complete disregard for handling classified information. https://t.co/s5DektWj9l pic.twitter.com/iwOxJIKHAL— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) November 4, 2016 Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Clinton was “disqualified” from being president for her emails. The FBI's decision regarding Clinton's mishandling of classified emails once again proves that she is DQ'd from being Commander in Chief.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) July 5, 2016 Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) suggested Clinton’s actions could have been worthy of jail time. The appearance is terrible. The decision is astounding. Ppl have gone to jail for less severe classified breaches and national security.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) July 5, 2016 Republicans have issued more measured responses to the Post’s report, with many calling for more information while hesitating to outright condemn Trump’s actions. Ryan seemed especially cautious in a statement released by his spokesperson, asking for a “full explanation of the facts” while omitting any criticism of the president. This statement from Speaker Paul Ryan's office puts the onus on the administration to explain what happened here pic.twitter.com/5t2oKP3IRr— Abby D.

Lawmaker Says There’s A ‘Distinction’ Between Being Gay And 'Being A Human Being'

A Republican lawmaker sent shockwaves through Missouri’s LGBTQ community when he argued that there is a “distinction” between human beings and those who identify as gay. On Monday, Missouri Rep. Rick Brattin (R-Harrisonville) was arguing against an amendment to Senate Bill 43, which would have banned discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the state, The Kansas City Star reports. At present, residents can be fired from their jobs or evicted from their apartments for being gay, or just being perceived as gay. But Brattin said he believed extending anti-discrimination protections to LGBTQ Missourians would infringe on religious liberty.   “When you look at the tenets of religion, of the Bible, of the Quran, of other religions,” Brattin said from the Missouri House floor, “there is a distinction between homosexuality and just being a human being.” The bill’s author, Republican Rep. Kevin Engler, ended up scrapping the amendment when it became clear that there were not enough votes to support it, making Brattin’s statement on queer people even more troubling. Without any LGBTQ-specific language in place, Senate Bill 43 passed 98-30 and will now head to Gov. Eric Greitens.  A Kansas City Star editorial published Tuesday condemned Brattin’s remark. “The statement, made on the Missouri House floor, was deplorable,” it read. “It betrayed a stunning lack of understanding of theology and self-government: The Constitution protects all Americans from the tyranny of any single faith-based approach to secular law.”  Others criticized the representative’s words on Twitter.  Shame on @RickBrattin - Gay People are Fully Human contrary to his belief. Also Representative-Trans* ppl arent Cross-Dressers #moleg #mona pic.twitter.com/ZSXmdP1pCb— Caleb-Michael Files (@_calebfiles) May 8, 2017 Well, my message to Rep. Rick Bratton would be: There is a clear distinction between being an asshole and just being a decent human being. pic.twitter.com/qKVYJCFlcI— Gay Social Worker (@gaysocialworker) May 10, 2017 Just sick!https://t.co/iNFhsD5ZZ9— Gay Pop Buzz (@gaypopeater) May 11, 2017 It isn’t the first time Brattin’s words have sparked controversy. In 2014, he proposed an extreme bill that would require women who are seeking an abortion to get permission from the man responsible for the pregnancy, The Kansas City Star reported. At the time, he cited his wife’s approval of his vasectomy as his inspiration for the legislation.  “So you couldn’t just go and say, ‘Oh yeah, I was raped,’ and get an abortion,” Brattin said, echoing sentiments that former Missouri Congressman Todd Akin used to defend anti-abortion measures. “It has to be a legitimate rape.” Brattin’s abortion bill never made it out of committee.
