In the past we here at FACTNet have been been attacked, hacked and slandered by many of our enemies but our mission held steady and we actually wouldn't have made it through if it wasn't for the help of our friends.... We got by with the help of our friends... :) One of our greatest supporters was and still is EPIC and they continue to fight the good fight for the neutrality of the web... We want to support them in this great cause and will be posting their articles in the future and will continue to be one of their most faithful backers until we win this war. I hope you will join us in backing them also...          From the FACTNet Family...   :)

New York Times June 1, 2014 by Justin Gillis and Henry Fountain

At the end of his first year in office, President Obama flew to Copenhagen and made a big promise: that the United States would cut its greenhouse gas emissions substantially by 2020 — a bold and risky pledge that hinged on a balky Congress to make it possible.
