How is Trump similar to the pope? They're both disrupters who rattle elites and staff 24.5.2017 LA Times: Nation

Amid the rambunctious American presidential campaign, Pope Francis joined the fray, telling reporters on his papal plane that Donald Trump’s pledge to build a border wall was “not Christian.” Trump fired back, calling the pope’s remarks “disgraceful.”

There's Finally a Dollar Amount Attached to How Much Trump Hates the EPA 24.5.2017 Mother Jones
President Donald Trump reserves a special level of antipathy for the Environmental Protection Agency. He campaigned on eliminating the EPA "in almost every form," and his budget director, Mick Mulvaney, declared that its climate change programs "waste your money." But his full budget wish list released Tuesday actually assigns a dollar value to his promises. In it, the EPA faces the steepest cut of any agency or department across the government, a 31.4 percent reduction to its $5.7 billion budget, its lowest level in 40 years. The Trump proposal is not going to survive congressional appropriations intact, but the numbers are instructive about where the administration's true priorities lie. "Everyone believes in and supports safe food supplies and clean air and water," the budget document declares, "but the agencies of the Federal Government have gone way beyond what was originally intended by the Congress." Far from redirecting the EPA away from climate change to its "core responsibilities" of preserving ...

President and the pope: After clashing, Trump, Francis can search for common ground 24.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Vatican City • They are stylistic opposites, one a bombastic tycoon-turned-president, the other a famously modest pope. They disagree openly on such weighty issues as immigration, climate change and economic policy. But President Donald Trump and Pope Francis share a trait that adds drama to their first meeting Wednesday: unpredictability. And when they greet each other — in a Vatican ceremony laden with history and symbolism — they may well find common ground, particularly in denouncing religio... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Study: Sea level rising 3x as fast since 1990 as figured before. Meanwhile, feds censor climate info 23.5.2017 Daily Kos
Calculations in a  new study show that sea level is rising three times as fast as it was before 1990. Previously, the rise before then had been considered to be higher than the new calculations. The scientists concluded in their reassessment that the rise since 1990 has been dramatically underestimated. This isn’t likely to be the last word on the subject. But the fine-tuning of measurements in the new study will no doubt spark critics to claim that the change from previous calculations proves scientists don’t know what they’re talking about. Although most of these “skeptics” have given up claiming global warming is a flat-out hoax, they haven’t stopped challenging fundamental assumptions held to by an overwhelming percentage of climate scientists. The sea-level study was conducted by scientists at the Research Institute for Water and Environment at the University of Siegen in Germany. Chris Mooney at The Washington Post reports : Their paper, just out in the Proceedings of the National Academy of ...
