Dem poll: Pryor up in Arkansas
Pryor leads Cotton by 46 percent to 43 percent in the poll, conducted for the DSCC's independent expenditure arm by Hickman Analytics. It falls within the poll's 3.5-percent margin of error. This is the second time in a few weeks that a Hickman poll has shown Pryor with a small lead — they had him up by two points in a late August poll. Publicly released internal polls should always be viewed with a bit of skepticism. The few recent nonpartisan public polls of the race have found Cotton with a small lead, and Republicans have been more bullish about the race than Democrats in recent weeks. The Hill

Should We Give Up On Reagan Style Tax Reform?
The landmark Tax Reform Act of 1986 is the inspiration for most tax reform efforts of the last decade, and with good reason. Against all odds, President Reagan and a Democratic Congress overcame what many believed were insurmountable political difficulties to pass into law a reform plan that reduced the top individual rate from 50% to 28% and the top corporate rate from 46% to 34%, and in the process jettisoned and downsized hundreds of tax benefits in the code.

Why the Rockefellers are betting on renewable energy
he name Rockefeller is deeply synonymous with turning oil into gold. Familial patriarch John D. Rockefeller founded Standard Oil in 1870 and bought up most of the oil refineries in the United States, eventually controlling over 90 percent of the American oil business. "Competition," he said, "is a sin." That empire, in inflation-adjusted terms, made him the richest man in history with a fortune estimated at $336 billion in 2010 dollars. The Standard Oil monopoly, meanwhile, was broken up and evolved into the global oil brands Exxon-Mobil, Amoco, and Chevron. But the times they are a-changin', and you don't need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. The Week

Google Chairman: ALEC Is Lying About Climate Change And Funding Them Was A Mistake
Google’s controversial decision to fund the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) was a “mistake,” company chairman Eric Schmidt admitted on Monday, saying the group is spreading lies about global warming and “making the world a much worse place.” In an interview on NPR’s Diane Rehm show, Schmidt said the free-market lobbying group’s anti-climate and anti-clean energy positions are harmful to future generations, and a bad investment idea for the company.

Forget the national debt. The new budget threat is climate change.
Shaun Donovan gave his first speech as White House budget director Friday, and he didn't even mention that Washington obsession of recent years, the $17.8 trillion national debt. No, in the run-up to next week's United Nations climate summit in New York, the Obama administration is focused like a laser on a different threat to federal finances and the U.S. economy: the consequences of global warming.

Combating Climate Change Will Strengthen U.S. Economy, Lew Says
Making investments in combating climate change will make the U.S. economy stronger and create tens of thousands of jobs, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew said. “The need for action is clear,” Lew said in a first-ever speech by a Treasury secretary focusing on climate change. “The world can either choose to ignore the challenge today and be forced to take more drastic action at greater cost down the road. Or we can make sensible, modest and gradual changes now, and in the process create jobs, reduce business and household expenses, and drive innovation, technology, and new industries.” Bloomberg
