Fun idea! Let’s all be better read than our own President.
From the article:
read this. #uptous
From the article: Everything that is weak, disappointing, and inadequate about the Paris climate accord is the result of U.S. lobbying since 2009.
I’m not laughing. Are you?
“You can arrest any person, search any house,” Duterte told the soldiers Friday.
“I alone would be responsible” for anything they did under martial law, he said. “I will go to jail for you. If you happen to have raped three women, I will own up to it.”
From the article: “You can arrest any person, search any house,” Duterte told his soldiers. And if they raped a woman, he apparently joked, he’d go to jail for them.
From the article: There are few things I feel confident in predicting with any certainty, but of this one I am certain. History will judge mercilessly President Trump’s reported decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement as the height of folly, where greed, cynicism, shortsightedness and ignorance triumphed over intelligence and leadership.
The implications for this action are far-reaching. There is hope that the rest of the world will move on, and the forces in this country at the state, local, and corporate level can lessen some of the repercussions. Renewable energy is on the rise, thanks also to market forces. But more is needed. Much more. This is not an issue with which we can trifle, and although Mr. Trump at his age and with his wealth will likely be immune to most of the long term consequences of his action, his descendants and those of his willing enablers will not.
That is the headline, but what is also clear is that the United States is no longer a leader. We have ceded the moral high ground to countries like those in Europe and even China who have no trouble understanding science and reason. This is a long-term threat to our own health and prosperity. We are retreating where we should be charging forward. We say we can’t when we should be saying we can. We are buying into an antiquated view of our global environment that will only isolate us and diminish us.
These are the stakes. Time is running out on the environment. It is time for some profiles in courage of Republicans in Congress to push back on the denialism that has wracked their party. And it is time for all of us to say that this is an issue of the top priority. Our elected leaders need to feel the heat – not only the thermostat but at the ballot box.
From the article: Dear Donald J. Trump: Former Mexican President Vicente Fox Quesada has an important message for you.
From the article: Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race, current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges told Reuters.
la la la everything is functioning normally, the planet is fine, the government is fine. don’t worry! #doubleplusungood
From the article: Leak raises fresh concerns about hazards to waterways and outrages indigenous groups, who have long warned of threat to environment
so this is going well.
From the article: Trump thumbed his nose at the American people on Monday by meeting with Russian officials as suspicions about his campaign ties to the country are at their peak. Adding insult to injury, the White House didn’t allow any U.S. press to be present. But Russian press got a front row seat in the Oval Off…
