Nonvoters 2020: Counted Out

A special report in collaboration with NPR and Ipsos

Although more Americans voted in November’s presidential election than in any other in the last century, about one-third of eligible voters did not cast ballots—and, by a wider margin than in the past, it’s because they simply did not want to. According to a Medill School of Journalism/NPR/Ipsos survey of 1,103 nonvoters and 740 voters conducted last month, nonvoters in 2020 feel more apathetic and politically alienated than in the past and unsure about what would motivate them to vote in the future. Voters express more hopelessness, too.

Bipartisan group of lawmakers see carbon capture as answer to climate change

Carbon capture, a process by which carbon dioxide is sequestered from emission sources such as power plants or directly from the atmosphere and then stored or reused, has become a rare bastion of bipartisan congressional agreement on climate action. On Wednesday, lawmakers in the House and Senate, including Sens. Chris Coons, D-Del., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Reps. David McKinley, R-W.Va., and Marc Veasey, D-Texas, introduced a bill to provide loan guarantees from the Department of Energy to new and existing carbon capture projects.
