Syfy's 'Blood Drive' Blames Fracking for Its Dystopian America 22.6.2017 NewsBusters
Syfy’s new show, Blood Drive, centers itself on a dystopian world destroyed by climate change. As a result, anyone who wants a decent life must partake in a gruesome race using cars powered by human blood. Syfy 's description of the show is: “The Future: where water is a scarce as oil, and climate change keeps the temperature at a cool 115 in the shade. It’s a place where crime is so rampant that only the worst violence is punished.” Wednesday night’s episode, “Welcome to Pixie Swallow,” revealed that fracking is what led to the violent, depraved world that exists in the show. A cyborg that works for the evil corporation that controls every business shows an abducted police officer a video detailing the past horrors that resulted from fracking and how Heart Corporation was able to take over amidst the chaos. Video: Innovation, invention, industry-- welcome to Heart, recruit. Christopher: Recruit? Video: Even though our focus is in the future, it's important to know our history. When the great fracking ...

A massive and unprecedented coral bleaching event may finally be coming to an end 21.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
An ongoing global coral bleaching event, one that’s affected more than 70 percent of tropical reefs worldwide, may finally be coming to a close.

Do Not Laugh At Me Because He Was My Governor. He’s Now Your Secretary Of Energy. 21.6.2017 Crooks Liars
Rick Perry, who did not even know what the energy department did before he became the secretary of the damn thing, has a new scientific theory about climate change. Asked whether CO2 emissions are primarily responsible for climate change, Perry told CNBC’s “Squawk Box”: “No, most likely the primary control knob is the ocean waters and this environment that we live in.” Ocean waters? Like they get hot or cold on their own because of … oh I dunno, whale poop? According to Professor Perry of the Texas A&M Department of Animal Husbandry, the other thing that causes climate change is “this environment that we live in.” You mean like the CO2 emissions or fluffy clouds? Here’s the kicker. Being a skeptic about climate change issues is “quite all right,” he [Perry] said, suggesting that skepticism is a sign of a “wise, intellectually engaged ...

Musician’s Animated Video Depicts Trump as Swastika, Dies in Explosion 21.6.2017 NewsBusters
With all the hostile rhetoric against Donald Trump going around these days, it’s not surprising that people in the entertainment industry have made the Republican president one of their favorite targets. The most recent example of this trend was an animated video released by a musician called “Moby” -- though his real name is Richard Melville Hall -- who did his part to boost The Resistance by depicting President Trump as “a Nazi-esque leader” who dies in an explosion while in the form of a swastika and then a dollar sign. The album contained music from a group called Moby & the Void Pacific Choir under the title of More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse and features a video about a song entitled “In This Cold Place.” According to an article written by Todd Van Luling, a senior staff writer of the Huffington Post website, Moby believed it is “obvious” that “the world is ending" due to such problems as “antibiotic resistance and climate change,” and ‘nobody cares to notice.” The video, Moby explained, ...
