“we all know that human activities are changing the atmosphere in unexpected and in unprecedented ways.” (u.s. president george h.w. bush)

cashing in on climate change denial

senators who voted against an amendment that stated human beings are in large part a cause of climate change collected an average of us$467,000 from oil and coal industry groups. details after the jump.

more interesting reading: a computer study of more than 39 million words on the denial side of human-caused climate change found that the bulk of it was funded by exxonmobil and the koch foundation or front organizations associated with those groups.

the morning after

i'm waiting to hear the sanders supporters' reactions - much like the obama supporters when they learned that their candidate could not change the world single-handedly. it must be like waking up after you've slept with someone at a party... sweet talk and too much to drink, followed by that long, angry and disappointed walk home.

it's not that the candidate is not admirable; they are always better than what we end up with. but expecting a different outcome when the other side writes the rules is folly, and naive. of course they win - they own the game.

the winning move is not to play. don't accept the lesser of any number of evils; evil is not something that should be judged by degree. do you say that the monster who eats just 1 child is better than the one that eats 10?

they are a made-up thing, like money and priests. if we all stop believing in them, they will go away.
