WI Republican: "I Would Be Tempted To Be A Pervert" 28.5.2016 Crooks Liars
Wisconsin Republicans are undaunted in the face of Obama saying that bathrooms should be open to all people. They are going to be as bigoted as they want to be, dammit! They have already promised to bring back their attempt to introduce and pass an anti-transgender bathroom bill . Now the Wisconsin Republicans have joined ten other states in suing President Barack Obama for their Right of Bigotry : The State of Wisconsin and 10 other states launched a lawsuit Wednesday against new bathroom rules for transgender students that were issued by President Barack Obama's administration. It's only the latest legal challenge from Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel and other Republican state officials who have also sued over Obama policies such as the Affordable Care Act and rules on carbon emissions that contribute to climate ...

The Trump energy plan—burn it down, burn it all down 27.5.2016 Daily Kos
Don Trump joined  a group of oil and gas executives on Thursday to lay out the Trump plan for Trumping energy. Trump is not exactly known for showing up where he’s not guaranteed cheers, so his chosen audience for this speech is a pretty good indicator of the contents. And no doubt, the  champions of fossil fuel were not disappointed. Donald J. Trump traveled Thursday to the heart of America’s oil and gas boom, where he called for more fossil fuel drilling and fewer environmental regulations while vowing to “cancel the Paris climate agreement,” the 2015 accord committing nearly every nation to taking action to curb climate change. Laying out his positions on energy and the environment at an oil industry conference in North Dakota, he vowed to rescind President Obama’s signature climate change rules and revive construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, which would bring petroleum from Canada’s oil sands to Gulf Coast refineries. If there is a person in America for whom the Supreme Court nominations are not ...

The desperate plight of petro-states 27.5.2016 Le Monde Diplomatique
Pity the poor petro-states. Once so wealthy from oil sales that they could finance wars, mega-projects, and domestic social peace simultaneously, some of them are now beset by internal strife or are on the brink of collapse as oil prices remain at ruinously low levels. Unlike other countries, which largely finance their governments through taxation, petro-states rely on their oil and natural gas revenues. Russia, for example, obtains about 50% of government income that way; Nigeria, 60%; (...) - Open page

(Photo: Candice Bernd) While voters at ExxonMobil's annual shareholders meeting rejected nearly all of the 11 climate and good-governance related resolutions brought forward this week in Dallas, one "proxy-access" measure passed that would allow investors holding at least 3 percent of shares to nominate outsiders for seats on the company's board.

Review: Philly rebels after North Korea invades 'Homefront' 27.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Americans are worried about a lot of things: jobs, health care, climate change, terrorism, too many guns, not enough guns. But hey, at least we haven’t been invaded by North Korea. If that scenario has been weighing on you, though, you might find some solace in “Homefront: The Revolution” (Deep Silver, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, $59.99). In this alternate universe, Kim Jong Un’s army is powerful enough to occupy parts of the United States — but make the mistake of setting up headquarte...

Open thread for night owls: Exxon, Bill Gates share the same—wrong—climate policy 27.5.2016 Daily Kos
 Joe Romm at ThinkProgress pokes holes in Bill Gates’ energy take in  Bill Gates And Exxon Now Share The Same Climate Policy. They’re Wrong :  There was some bad news for billionaire Bill Gates at  Exxon’s shareholder meeting  Wednesday. Exxon chairman, president, and CEO Rex Tillerson said of Gates, “there’s no space between he and I” on what the world needs to do about climate change. “We’ve gotta have some technology breakthroughs but until we achieve those, just saying turn the taps off is not acceptable to humanity.” Memo to Gates: It just might be time to rethink your position when the  biggest corporate climate villain  on planet Earth embraces your climate policy. And it might be time to rethink your message when the head of the company that has funded disinformation about climate science and solutions longer than any other says he has “had this conversation” with you and you are in total agreement. Of course, Tillerson is not telling the truth when he says people who want strong climate action ...
