I suspect most of you are aware of the disatrous TPP - Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement that is being considered in congress (and has Obama support). But knowing about some specific possible consequences is helpful. Today Democracy now highlighted some. TPP would corporations to sue for lost profits due to environmental regulations. IMHO, information about TPP tends to be fraught with legalese and complicated explanations. Here is a fairly readable explanation: http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2015/05/15/3658901/the-tpp-could-be-bad-for-the-climate/ For more, including from more well know sources, search for: TPP and climate change Fred -- I support Bernie Sanders for President Fred H.
