New US climate pledge: Cut emissions 50% this decade, but can Biden make it happen? By Morgan Bazilian and David Victor for the Conversation 4/23/2021

Tempting as it is to tighten the screws on emissions, efforts that are too aggressive will easily become fodder for the political opponents and industries that have undermined climate efforts in the past.
The shift in climate politics is important to watch. Biden has a barely functional majority on Capitol Hill, and the real politics of climate change aren't simply about the technical scenarios of cutting emissions with cleaner technologies. They are also about how society transitions.
After four years of the Trump administration's antagonism toward climate efforts, and undermining of U.S. credibility overseas, and with so much domestic work on climate still needed, a U.S.‐hosted summit may have been premature. The intense diplomatic efforts to pressure other countries to make announcements at the event seemed out of touch with the U.S. need to get its house in order first.

Derek Chauvin trial: 3 questions America needs to ask about seeking racial justice in a court of law by Lewis R. Gordon for the Conversation, 4/18/2021
Is there ever excusable police violence?
Police are allowed to use force to prevent violence. But at what point does the force become violence? When its use is illegitimate. In U.S. law, the force is illegitimate when done “in the course of committing an offense.”
Sgt. David Pleoger, Chauvin’s former supervisor, stated in the trial: “When Mr. Floyd was no longer offering up any resistance to the officers, they could have ended their restraint.”
Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo testified, “To continue to apply that level of force to a person proned‐out, handcuffed behind their back, that, no way, shape or form is anything that is by policy.” He declared, “I vehemently disagree that that was an appropriate use of force.”
