RepMarkey

Published on Jul 10, 2013

On Tuesday, July 9th, 2013 Senator-Elect & Congressman Edward Markey bid farewell to his colleagues on the House Floor before he is sworn in as a United States Senator. He was elected to the United States Senate in the Massachusetts special election on June 25th, 2013.

“Thirty-seven years ago, I stepped off the plane in Washington, and it was my first visit in my life to Washington, D.C. I had never been here before, and I was sworn in as a Congressman on my first visit to this city 37 years ago.

“I am so proud to have been a Congressman here in this chamber along with all of you.

“For me, the House is democracy in action — all of us declaring our love of country, and our desire for a better future for all of our constituents, and for our nation.

“I am honored to have served here.

“I am blessed to have made so many wonderful friends here.

“And I am humbled by the dedication of all of you to this great nation. As I have represented Massachusetts, so, too, have each of you represented your states with your conscience.

“I now go to serve in the Senate. But there is a big part of me that will always be a man of the House after 37 years, having served here in this great body.

“And with that, I say for the last time, Madam Speaker, I yield back the balance of my time.

“Thank you all so much.”

The genetically modified food debate: Where do we begin?

I’ve lingered at the fringes of the debate over genetically modified foods since the ’90s, hoping that some solid fact would filter out and show me clearly who was in the right. But that hasn’t happened. Every shred of information, it seems, is contested, and all this turbulence keeps the water muddy.

Now the debate is coming to a head again. Britain is reconsidering its restrictive position. Here in the U.S., bills to require the labeling of GM foods were introduced to the legislatures in 28 states this year. Now that I’m writing on food for Grist, I can’t keep waiting on the sidelines for someone else to clear this up. I’m going to have to figure it out for myself.     …..(read more).

Japan has always been energy hungry and addicted to nuclear power. Yet the tsunami washed away old certainties and the industry has seen a growing ground-level resistance and concern about its safety.

“The safety myth about nuclear power has been sunk deeply into people’s hearts. But that lie has been exposed”, says anti-nuclear activist, Hitomi Kamanaka. The Fukushima disaster is believed to have released as much radiation as 200 Hiroshima bombs. “There’s been a lot of cover up over this”. Across Japan communities are fighting to stop the construction of new power plants. Yet can the world’s third biggest consumer of electricity live without them?
