President Obama's deal with China to dramatically cut greenhouse gas emissions may go down as one of his lasting legacies once everything is said and done with his Administration. The deal, which was announced at a joint press conference, set far reaching goals of reducing carbon emissions that surprised most everyone over how much the two countries agreed to cut.

These are among the economic costs that climate change is expected to exact in the United States over the next 25 years, according to a bipartisan report released on Tuesday. And that's just for starters: The price tag could soar to hundreds of billions by 2100.
This week Congress is considering a new kind of Farm Bill. The bill marks a major step in changing the paradigm in American agriculture policy: It ends outdated farm subsidies, expands support for healthier and more locally-based food systems, strengthens our country's commitment to preserve our land and water and protects food assistance for families while addressing program misuse.

The new Farm Bill ends indefensible government subsidies like direct payments, which pay farmers every year whether they need it or not.
