As Australia Burns, a Climate-Change Denier Rallies the Troops:

Mr. Kelly prefers pugilism. He argues that the fires are no worse than in the past, that arsonists and socialists are to blame for the blazes, that coal is winning, that Arctic ice is not melting — and that those who disagree are no better than the censors in Orwell’s “1984.”

I’m a scientist. Under Trump I lost my job for refusing to hide climate crisis facts | Maria Caffrey:

I handed in the first draft of my scientific report in the summer of 2016 and, after the standard rigorous scientific peer review process, it was ready for release in early 2017. But once the new administration came into power, publication was repeatedly delayed, with increasingly vague explanations from my supervisors. So for months, I waited. And waited. I was still waiting when I went on maternity leave almost a year later in December 2017.

It was while I was on leave that I received an email from another climate scientist at the NPS who warned me that the senior leadership was ordering changes to my report without my knowledge. They had scrubbed of any mention of the human causes of the climate crisis. This was not normal editorial adjustment. This was climate science denial.

What Greed has Done: Chris Hedges:

“There’s no way to control corporate power. The system has broken down. whether it’s democrat or republican, and because of that, we’ve all become commodities, just as the natural world has become a commodity.”

Our leaders are ignoring global warming to the point of criminal negligence. It’s unforgivable | Tim Winton:

lthal-kurage:

The problem – and it’s an existential threat both profound and perverse – is that those who lead us and have power over our shared destiny are ignoring global warming to the point of criminal negligence. Worse than that, their policies, language, patronal obligations and acts of bad faith are poisoning us, training citizens to accept the prospect of inexorable loss, unstoppable chaos, certain doom. Business as usual is robbing people of hope, white-anting the promise of change. That’s not just delinquent, it’s unforgivable.

The destruction of the Earth is a crime. It should be prosecuted | George Monbiot: undefined

Top oil firms spending millions lobbying to block climate change policies, says report:

“Oil majors’ climate branding sounds increasingly hollow and their credibility is on the line. They publicly support climate action while lobbying against binding policy. They advocate low-carbon solutions but such investments are dwarfed by spending on expanding their fossil fuel business.”

How does it become a man to behave toward this American government today? I answered that he cannot without disgrace be associated with it.

Trump administration to create panel to deny climate change facts almost all scientists agree on:

These are crimes against humanity and should be treated as such.
