    The private sector will shoulder the costs associated with transforming the U.S. economy into a “green” economy, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Wednesday. While the federal government plans to provide funds through direct investments and tax credits, private companies will be expected to pay for most of the estimated $2.5 trillion needed over the course of the next decade for the so-called “green transition,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said during a speech at the Institute of International Finance on Wednesday. Yellen began her speech, which was focused on the U.S. response to climate change, by laying out how the public sector would respond and touting President Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan. She then explained the private sector’s responsibility, saying it “should not be very challenging” for companies to raise the money necessary for climate change initiatives. “One estimate placed the needed incremental investments at over $2.5 trillion for the United...
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faulted the rejection of "indigenous rights" and "racial justice" on Tuesday as causes of climate change. "The climate crisis is a crisis born of injustice, and it is a crisis born of the pursuit of profit at any and all human and ecological cost, which means that we must recognize in legislation that the trampling of indigenous rights is a cause of climate change," the New York Democrat said, "that the trampling of racial justice is a cause of climate change because we are allowing people and we are allowing folks to deny ourselves human rights and deny people the right to healthcare, the right to housing and education."

    John Kerry, the United States’ climate envoy is on his way to China to discuss joint efforts on climate change, the Biden administration shared. The Washington Post was first to report the visit. Source: CGTN America/YouTube The meeting signals the importance of the climate crisis in international talks. As a country, China is the number one carbon emitter and experts share that the country is a crucial part of global climate discussions. Kerry’s visit will be the first of any administration official to China since the Biden team took office on January 20.

    A bad date with bleach a few months ago resulted in me waking up with half my long locks snapped off, on the pillow. The only way I could imagine having healthy hair again was to cut it all off and start again, this time without the dye. As a result, I've been letting my natural grey hair grow in — something lots of women have been forced to do with hairdressers closed over lockdown.  But whereas most will be stampeding back to the salon this week, to my huge surprise, I've found I absolutely love being grey.  Yet, according to a new study from the University of Exeter, published in the Journal of Women & Aging, some women who go grey (like me) face social rejection, a loss of credibility, are made to feel invisible and even seen as less competent.

The EU is racing to meet an April 21 deadline to publish the first section of its sustainable finance taxonomy, a list of economic activities that will decide which ones can be labelled as green investments in the EU from next year.

    Hideki Matsuyama. Jared C. Tilton/Getty Images Hideki Matsuyama is the first Japanese player to win the Masters. According to ESPN's Andy North the win could be worth $1 billion in lifetime earnings for Matsuyama. Matsuyama already has earned $2.1 million for winning the tournament, but that's only the beginning. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Winning the Masters will change the life of any golfer.

    US Capitol Police Officer William “Billy” Evans, who was rammed by a car at the Capitol last week, died of multiple blunt force injuries to the head, the DC medical examiner said late Thursday. Evans’ death was ruled a homicide, according to a statement from the medical examiner’s office. An 18-year veteran of the force, Evans died while protecting the Capitol from an individual who brandished a knife after ramming his vehicle into a police barricade along the perimeter of the Capitol.

    Warriors forward Draymond Green said previous comments he made about women were making complaints rather than taking action over the disparities in pay in women’s sports were “misconstrued.” This comes after United States women’s national soccer team star Megan Rapinoe on Wednsday told reporters during a media session for this summer’s Tokyo Olympics that Green’s comments and series of tweets explaining his position last month were misguided. “It’s really unfortunate, in the position [Green’s] in, having all of the resources that he has and the ability to have a much more educated opinion, that he just hasn’t,” said Rapinoe, who has been outspoken and active in USWNT’s pursuit for equal pay. “I think what I’ve said has been extremely misconstrued because I am on their side,” said Green, who attempted to clarify his statements during a media session with reporters after practice Thursday. “I saw what Megan...

    The deranged driver who fatally rammed a police officer before being gunned down outside the US Capitol on Friday may have suffered repeated head trauma during years of playing football, his family said Saturday. Noah Green, 25, was "not a terrorist by any means," the family told the Washington Post. Green had been studying for his master’s degree in business administration — but also suffered from "depression and potential mental illness," the family said. CAPITOL POLICE OFFICER DEAD, ANOTHER WOUNDED AFTER CAR RAMS INTO BARRIER; SUSPECT KILLED His troubles may have stemmed from head trauma that accumulated over his years playing football, including as a defensive back at Christopher Newport University in Virginia, they said.

    The brother of the suspect killed in Friday's Capitol attack says his sibling was dealing with suicidal thoughts and paranoia in the months prior to the shocking incident that also left a Capitol Police officer dead and another injured. Brendan Green said his brother Noah Green, who has been identified by multiple news outlets as the perpetrator of the Friday attack, had experienced hallucinations, heart palpitations, headaches, and suicidal thoughts, which he believes could have been related to mental illness or drug abuse.

    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A university investigating the alcohol-related death of a student in Ohio has accused the fraternity he was trying to join of violating several student conduct rules involving hazing.

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said Friday evening on CNN that Friday’s attack on the Capitol was “one of the results” of the Jan. 6 riot. McCabe told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer “it’s not uncommon to have people who are suffering from some form of mental illness or emotional distress” to go to places like the Capitol, the White House or the FBI headquarters to air their grievances or delusions. He gave an example of a woman in 2013 who was shot when she drove her car from Connecticut to the White House and tried to drive through a checkpoint.

    Aaron Rodgers does not believe it is up to him to retire in a Green Bay Packers uniform. While Aaron Rodgers could potentially play his entire NFL career with the Green Bay Packers, the reigning MVP isn’t entirely sold on that possibility coming to fruition. When prompted by ESPN’s Kenny Mayne if he wanted to only wear one uniform, Rodgers offered this. “Yeah, so far, it’s definitely been my team,” said Rodgers to Mayne. “I said last year I didn’t know if that was actually possible to be able to finish there.

    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson said Friday that President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure bill is a package for the Green New Deal and reparations. “It’s a green energy, green new deal bill, it’s a reparations bill,” Carlson said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” Biden introduced the $2 trillion package, titled the American Jobs Plan, on Wednesday in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which seeks to revamp U.S. infrastructure, invest in green energy technologies and address racial inequities in schooling as well as housing. At least $600 billion is reserved for traditional improvements to American infrastructure, including upgrades to ports, motorways, and public transit. But the legislation also provides significant funding toward technological development to ameliorate the effects of climate change and large investments to address “long-standing and persistent racial injustice,” according to a White House Fact Sheet.

    Fully vaccinated Americans can resume domestic and overseas travel as long as they wear masks in public, according to brand-new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). They also don't need to be tested for COVID-19 before or after domestic travel and don't have to self-quarantine on return, provided they follow public health measures. The CDC released the guidance on Friday, April 2.  In addition to wearing a mask, fully vaccinated travelers should also: Stay 6 feet from others and avoid crowds Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer The CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated because, it said, "travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19." The CDC said it will update these recommendations as more people are vaccinated, as rates of COVID-19 change, and as additional scientific evidence becomes available. This guidance applies to travel within the United...
    Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green cut loose with his thoughts on equal pay in sports. Female athletes making less money has been all over the news recently thanks to Megan Rapinoe, and it’s a very simple situation to understand. If you don’t generate as much money as men, then you don’t get paid like men. As simple as it might be, a lot of people don’t get it, and Green is tired of hearing people just talk without presenting any actual plans.

    Dr Fauci has said the US may not need AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine even if it wins regulatory approval, as Moderna is given the green light to speed up its rollout with bigger vials. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical adviser to the White House, told Reuters Thursday that America has enough contracts with other vaccine makers to inoculate its entire population even without approving the AstraZeneca vaccine which is being used in dozens of other countries.  The US has so far authorized and rolled out three COVID-19 vaccines - Pfizer and Moderna with their two-shot vaccines and Johnson & Johnson's one-shot vaccine.  Fauci said the supply coming from these three drugmakers will not only be enough to get all Americans vaccinated but may also be enough for booster shots to be given out in the fall.   Dr Fauci has said the US...
    Warriors forward Draymond Green said Wednesday that women athletes need to stop “complaining” about the difference in pay between men athletes and start taking action. “They’re not laying out steps that they can take to change that,” Green said a day before Golden State’s game in Miami. “It’s coming off as a complaint because the people who can change it are just going to continue to say, ‘Well, the revenue isn’t there. If you don’t bring in the revenue, we can’t up your pay.’ They’re going to keep using that, but the reality is, as true as that is, it’s an excuse. Everyone says, ‘We support women. We support women’s empowerment. We support women in the workplace. We do this for women. We do X for women. Blah, blah, blah.’ “These women are not using these people who are saying these things to their advantage.” These comments...
    Warriors star Draymond Green rarely lacks confidence in himself. And, as a three-time NBA champion and All-Star, why should he? That’s why it’s not surprising to hear Green believes he’s even better than his label as a great defensive player. “I think I’m the best defender to ever play in the NBA,” Green told NBC Sports Bay Area’s Grant Liffman and Kendra Andrews on the “Dubs Talk” podcast. I stand by that. I’d put myself up against anyone.” Green has a vast resume as part of his defense — he’s a five-time All-Defensive team member, the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2016-17 and, most importantly, he revolutionized the game as a small-ball center. But his claim of being the best ever was still met with skepticism. Miami Heat backup center Udonis Haslem replied to a story about Green’s contention with laughing emojis...

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — A.J. Green spent the better part of a decade in Cincinnati as the team’s premier pass catcher and he’s got seven Pro Bowl appearances to prove it. Now the 32-year-old is in Arizona, where he’ll be playing next to Cardinals star receiver DeAndre Hopkins and versatile young quarterback Kyler Murray. Instead of the main man, he’ll just be one of the guys. And honestly, that doesn’t sound too bad to him at all. “I’m going to get a lot of one on ones,” Green said on Thursday, letting loose a small laugh. “I’m very excited about that.” The Cardinals announced Wednesday that Green was coming to the desert on a one-year deal worth around $8 million.

    Jamaal Williams will be headed to a new team after the Green Bay Packers re-signed Aaron Jones. Entering the 2021 offseason, it was clear the Green Bay Packers would have to part ways with one of their two prime running backs. Many believe that Aaron Jones would be the one to leave as two productive seasons would make his value too high. NFL teams are always looking to add affordable runners. After a successful career with the Packers, Williams might be willing to take a less deal to show he is a true No.1 one back in the league for years to come. Next: Will the Packers regret paying Aaron Jones?

    California regulators have fined Amazon.com Services and a Santa Ana-based delivery company $6.4 million for failing to pay 718 workers for meal breaks and overtime when their 10-hour shifts ran long. The fine amounts to $7,388 per worker, with some of the penalties going to the state. The year-long investigation by the state Department of Industrial Relations found that drivers working for Green Messengers Inc. making Amazon deliveries in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties were often too pressed by crushing loads of deliveries to stop for breaks. The probe, which began in summer 2019, found violations from April 2018 through January 2020, before the coronavirus pandemic began. “Contracting out services does not release employers from their duty to ensure workers are being legally compensated,” California Labor Commissioner Lilia García-Brower said in a statement. “In this case, both Green Messengers and Amazon.com Services are responsible for the wage theft...

    An exorcist has warned a Wisconsin woman that her creepy-looking cat is possessed by a demon and should be caged and prayed over.   Alyson Kalhagen, from Green Bay, was contacted after posting pictures of her cat Pixel online, intending to show off his 'beauty and refinement'.

One such message was from an exorcist who told Kalhagen that a demon was using her pet as a 'puppet' and instructing her to keep Pixel  caged and pray 'over and over' in front of him to get the demon out.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said passing the Green New Deal would have helped to prevent the devastating power outages in Texas that have left millions struggling to find warmth in their homes amid a brutal winter storm and record-shattering cold temperatures. "The infrastructure failures in Texas are quite literally what happens when you *don’t* pursue a Green New Deal," Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted on Tuesday night.  More than 3.4 million customers remained without power on Wednesday in Texas, according to PowerOutage.us, which tracks utility outage reports. There were also widespread outages in Louisiana and Mississippi, and rolling blackouts across a broad swath of the Midwest. State leaders, including Texas Gov.

    (AP) – With millions of Texas residents still without power amid frigid temperatures, conservative commentators presented a false narrative that wind turbines and solar energy were primarily to blame. “We should never build another wind turbine in Texas,” read a Tuesday Facebook post from Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller. “The experiment failed big time.” RELATED: Snowmobiler Missing In Jackson County After Another Colorado Avalanche “This is a perfect example of the need for reliable energy sources like natural gas & coal,” tweeted U.S. Sen.

    Toyota is tipping its toes back into the electric car space. The automaker, which dominates the hybrid scene, has announced plans to introduce two full-electric models and a new plug-in hybrid that provides enough electric range for an average commute in the U.S. this year. It already offers two of the latter, the Prius and Rav4 Prime, and hasn’t yet said what form the new one will take. (I’m putting my money on the Highlander, but we’ll see!)

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Mayor Lori Lightfoot continues to hammer home the importance of transparency, especially when it comes to police misconduct. But CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov has learned Tuesday city lawyers are heading back to court to try to keep hundreds of police misconduct records from being released. It all began with one man’s public records request, which the city ignored, in his fight to clear his name. RELATED: Watch For The Symptoms: Illness Connected To The Coronavirus Strikes Young Children The city then offered him $500,000 to make his records request go away, but there was never a payout.

    With a rash of injuries, the Warriors were down to one center in their game against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday. Draymond Green’s 29 minutes at center made for a fast-paced game in which the Warriors put up 147 points in Dallas. “I think I only called plays in timeouts,” head coach Steve Kerr said after the game. “The pace of the game, we were just going. I felt like Nellie, it was like the Run TMC days all over again.” Kerr was referencing former Warriors head coach Don Nelson and the fast-paced, small-ball teams he ran with Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin in the late 1980s and 1990s. Green at center had one of his best games this year, totaling 15 assists with 11 points and six rebounds. The spacing also did wonders for Kelly Oubre Jr., who was used a bit more as...

Currie laid out his case in an interview on "Fast Money: Halftime Report," and it didn't have anything to do with the recent reports of an attempted silver short squeeze possibly sparked by Reddit users. "I like to say that it's a turbo-charged version of gold," said Currie, global head of commodities research at Goldman Sachs, adding that silver could benefit from more green energy spending down the line. Both gold and silver can offer protection for investors who are worried about currency debasement, Currie said. Those concerns have taken on greater saliency in the last year as the coronavirus pandemic prompted major injections of...

    A new report from the World Economic Forum says that countries cannot use the lowered carbon emissions from the pandemic to help alleviate climate change. The 2021 Global Risks report outlines threats to humanity including, political and social unrest, as well as economic disenfranchisement. Citing similar downturns during the Great Recession, report authors stress that the slowdown of emissions during the pandemic is just a small respite, rather than stand for prolonged reductions. “Although lockdowns worldwide caused global emissions to fall in the first half of 2020, evidence from the 2008–2009 Financial Crisis warns that emissions could bounce back,” the report reads. “A shift towards greener economies cannot be delayed until the shocks of the pandemic subside.” Instead, authors should use aggressive targets and carbon trading to help move towards a reduced emissions economy. “A shift towards greener production and consumption cannot be delayed until economies are revived,” the report...

    Aaron Rodgers said his future in Green Bay was “uncertain” following Sunday’s loss in the NFC Championship. “A lot of guys’ futures [are] uncertain, myself included,” Rodgers said after the Packers fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-26. Rodgers has three years remaining on a four-year, $134 million contract, and the Packers would be stuck with a dead-money charge of $31.6 million if he is not on the roster next season. “He better be back here,” head coach Matt LaFleur said. So while it is difficult to imagine the Packers trading their franchise quarterback, Sunday was not the first time Rodgers hinted that he could finish his career elsewhere. The 37-year-old reportedly was unhappy when Green Bay traded up in last year’s draft to select quarterback Jordan Love, as opposed to picking a player who would have more of an immediate impact. “I still believe in myself and I have...

    Back in November 1955, a Soviet train was crawling out of Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, when someone burst into one of the carriages, claiming he had seen a 'flying saucer' in the twilight sky. 'We turned off the light as quickly as possible,' said a witness. 'I saw a shadowy form above the horizon to the south.  Its profile was not clearly outlined against the night sky but it appeared to be shaped like a partially deflated balloon with a slight dome on top . . . It was off the ground and rising rather slowly in a vertical direction.' The object will sound familiar to fans of UFO films: a white light on top of the 'dome' and a pink-white glow moving clockwise around the perimeter, like a pinwheel. The object, the size of a small aircraft, was at most two miles away, the eyewitness estimated.  Back...

    Getty Draymond Green #23 high-fives Andrew Bogut #12 of the Golden State Warriors during their game against the Dallas Mavericks. The Golden State Warriors wouldn’t be who they are today without the high quality of drafting they were able to do in previous seasons. Being able to land two-time MVP Steph Curry, All-Star shooting guard Klay Thompson, and former Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green is nothing to scoff at. Even more so, it’s a much harder task to then develop those players to become as good as they have been. Many high draft picks, even some that are currently Warriors players, don’t necessarily pan out to be as good as advertised. That was almost the case for one of the Warriors stars. After being the 35th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, Green “was almost out of the league” according to one of his former teammates....
    Vice President-elect Kamala Harris Tuesday said the Biden administration will take a more "humane" approach to immigration when the president-elect takes office next week. The incoming administration plans to introduce an immigration reform bill that would grant automatic green cards to immigrants with Temporary Protected Status as well as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients – who were brought to the U.S. as children when their parents crossed the border illegally, Harris told Univision. The plan would include a path to citizenship for millions living in the U.S. illegally. It "creates a path for the majority of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the country to" get citizenship, "first making them legal permanent residents, a status they could access within a period of eight years," she said, Univision reported.

    Dan Henry, CEO of Green DotSource: Green Dot Green Dot, a fintech player that's often overlooked compared to bigger rivals PayPal and Square, has been on a tear lately, with its stock climbing 140% last year. Still, the company's shares have ample room to run as it launches a digital bank account for low and moderate income Americans and inks more partnership deals, according to CEO Dan Henry, hired in March to lead a turnaround of the firm. Green Dot started two decades ago as a pioneer in prepaid debit cards, which allowed people without bank accounts or credit history to use plastic. After acquiring a small FDIC-backed bank, Green Dot became the de facto partner for tech giants including Apple, Uber and Amazon, providing the regulated banking rails and deposit accounts for products including Apple Cash. Now, under Henry and his new leadership team, Green Dot is making a...

    The progressive agenda seemed more likely to succeed Monday after the House approved rules that would purportedly exempt policies like "Medicare for All" and the Green New Deal from a fiscal responsibility measure aimed at offsetting deficit increases with additional revenue. Congress initially passed the "PAYGO" or pay-as-you-go rule in 1990 but it expired in 2002. Democrats later reinstated the rule in 2007 but former President Obama carved out room for the 2009 stimulus designed to absord the impact of the financial crisis. The new exemption, approved on a party-line vote (217-206), applies to the COVID-19 response and efforts to address climate change. More specifically, H. Res. 8 allows the Budget Committee Chair to "exempt the budgetary effects of measures to prevent, prepare for, or respond to economic, environmental, or public health consequences resulting from climate change."

    The Packers are competing for the top seed in the NFC, which would secure them a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs. Former NFL wide receiver Steve Smith thinks that might not be worthwhile to Green Bay’s players, but not for the reason he thinks. Speaking at halftime of the Bills-Broncos game on Saturday, the former Panthers star made two points: First, he noted that Green Bay (10-3) is in a groove and might be better off not taking a week off. Then Smith concluded his argument by saying that the Packers might as well “play and get paid.” “You don’t get a playoff check if you don’t play that week, so you’re just sitting around and not collecting any money,” Smith said on NFL Network. “Let me play and get paid.” One problem: Smith’s wrong about the money. The Packers will get paid even if they have...
