Washington, D.C. – During the U.N. General Assembly last month, U.S. President Donald J. Trump continued to fight for fairer trade deals for American workers. The results of that hard work came to light Monday, when the President signed a pair of groundbreaking deals at the White House.

But that’s just what this businessman-turned-President Donald Trump calls a ‘good start,’” Vice President Mike Pence writes in the Arizona Daily Star.
Washington, D.C. – Hot and dry. NASA says these are the watchwords for large fires. While every fire needs a spark to ignite and fuel to burn, it’s the hot and dry conditions in the atmosphere that determine the likelihood of a fire starting, its intensity and the speed at which it spreads. Over the past several decades, as the world has increasingly warmed, so has its potential to burn.
Since 1880, the world has warmed by 1.9 degrees Fahrenheit, with the five warmest years on record occurring in the last five years. Since the 1980s, the wildfire season has lengthened across a quarter of the world’s vegetated surface, and in some places like California, fire has become nearly a year-round risk.
Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) joined the set of Fox News’ The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton for an hour-long, wide-ranging discussion on Huawei, China, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement and more.
“In China, you do not know where the military ends and the commerce sector begins… Should we be blocking Huawei across the board? Absolutely… They are setting up their foundation for cyber warfare, which they fully believe is the way they are going to move to dominance.”
Nashville, TN – This August’s work period has gone by in a flash! Traveling to nearly 40 counties throughout our state helped me determine how I can make life a little easier for my fellow Tennesseans. I’m ready to get back to D.C. and put everything I’ve learned over the past few weeks to good use.
Tennesseans should be able to receive quality health care close to home, when and if they need it. Folks in Dickson County weighed in on my Rural Health Agenda, which will establish or expand medical facilities and bring more providers to rural areas.
Greenbelt, MD – According to results from the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) funded by NASA’s Earth Science Division, increasingly frequent and severe forest fires could burn generations-old carbon stored in the soils of boreal forests.
Releasing this previously buried carbon into the atmosphere could change these forests’ balance of carbon gain and loss, potentially accelerating warming.
