Dan Rather is my hero

From Dan Rather: I think we should erect a monument built from materials impervious to the elements and list the names of all the elected officials and others in positions of power today in the United States who refuse to stand with the science on climate change. We can put this monument on the coastContinue reading “Dan Rather is my hero”

These aren’t normal times.

Just so we are clear on the kind of thing we’re up against. Trump chose Scott Pruitt to head the EPA. Scott hates the EPA and has been a vocal opponent of the EPA. Scott doesn’t believe in climate change. Scott is a huge supporter of and in the pockets of the fossil fuel industry.Continue reading “These aren’t normal times.”

how the GOP is killing us…

If you’re following politics at all, you’d be forgiven if you came to the conclusion that the Republican members of Congress are insane.
