Climate Progress named one of Top 50 Foreign Policy Blogs

If Watts Up With That can be named a leading science blog, Climate Progress can be one of the “Top 50 Foreign Policy Blogs.”

Seriously, though, global warming is the most important foreign-policy issue facing the country (see “Brookings joins the realists: 7 Years to Climate Midnight” and “Does a serious bill need action from China?“).

President Obama appears to understands that given his choice of climate-wise Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State. And Clinton certainly understands that, since, as the NYT‘s Andy Revkin reported yesterday:

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has settled on China as an important stop on her first trip abroad in her new job and aides told me that climate and energy will be high on the agenda.

We finally have an administration that takes national climate action serious, and is actively pursuing international negotiations — rather than trying to thwart them (see “Bush team, humiliated by Papua New Guinea (!), blinks in Bali, sort of“). So I expect to do more blogging about other countries and our obligation to them to take a leadership role on climate action.

    *Of course* Climate Progress is a top foreign policy blog.

    Wikipedia: A country’s foreign policy, also called the international relations policy, is a set of goals outlining how the country will interact with other countries economically, politically, socially and militarily, and to a lesser extent, how the country will interact with non-state actors. The aforementioned interaction is evaluated and monitored in attempts to maximize benefits of multilateral international cooperation. Foreign policies are designed to help protect a country’s national interests, national security, ideological goals, and economic prosperity. This can occur as a result of peaceful cooperation with other nations, or through exploitation.

    Just think, if CP wins in the FP category, it could get a whole new crop of deniers. Something to anticipate, like the most recent hobbling of the stimulus package or a trip to the dental surgeon.
