2016's hellish summer weather: A told-you-so climate moment? 21.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • This summer’s weather was relentless and hellish, crowded with the type of record-smashing extremes that scientists long have warned about. The season ends Wednesday, and not a moment too soon. Summer featured floods that killed hundreds of people and caused more than $50 billion in losses around the globe, from Louisiana and West Virginia to China, India, Europe and the Sudan. Meanwhile, droughts parched croplands and wildfires burned from California to Canada to China and India.

Goldman Sachs Is Acknowledging Climate Change. Why Isn't the GOP? 20.9.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Accepting the reality of climate change and the financial, social and political challenges it presents is something every single company, every single government and every single agency is going to have do in the coming years and decades. (Image: Dave Burnham / Flickr ) As climate change rapidly spirals out of control, big business is preparing for the inevitable. According to a new study from the environmental organization CDP, at least 1,300 corporations -- including Goldman Sachs, Disney and Microsoft -- either have an internal carbon pricing plan or are about to put one in place. The thinking here is simple. At some point or another (and hopefully sooner rather than later) we, as a civilization, are going to have to institute a carbon tax on all fossil fuel emissions. It's the most practical way to stop climate change, and it's the only way to recoup the costs of all the damage Big Oil, Big Coal and Big Gas have done and continue to do to our planet. Giant corporations like Microsoft know this, and ...

Here’s an odd thing: You never hear Donald Trump talking about UFOs. Or Bigfoot. And while imaginative observers may have found  Donald Trump's face on Mars,  Trump himself seems to be missing from the list of those who doubt the moon landings. Granted, Trump does believe that climate change is a “hoax,” but a lot of what Donald Trump believes seems to fit a theme. Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories  are filled with racism and projection . “Look,” he told Sean Hannity, “he was born ‘Barry Soetero.’ Somewhere along the line, he changed his name. I heard he had terrible marks, and he ends up in Harvard. He wrote a book that was better than Ernest Hemingway, but his second book was written by an average person. ... I say Bill Ayers wrote the book.”  … “He was best friends with Bill Ayers,” he explained, and Hannity just let him roll on at that point. “Bill Ayers was a super-genius. And a lot of people have said he wrote the book. Well recently, as you know last week, Bill Ayers came out and said he did ...
