Billionaire Funded Group Launches Vicious And False Attacks On AOC

The Ring of Fire

Published on Feb 26, 2019

A group calling themselves the Job Creators Network has been placing billboards in prominent locations in New York City that put the blame for the failed Amazon deal squarely on the shoulders of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They claim that she was able to kill the deal, and that she allegedly killed tens of thousands of jobs along with it. What they are saying, however, is that they are funded by the same billionaires who stand to lose the most now that the public is angry about the subsidies that they are receiving. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Climate Activists Stage Protest at Sen. McConnell’s Office

Feb 26, 2019

And in environmental news, over 250 youth climate activists from the group Sunrise Movement took over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s D.C. office Monday, calling out the Kentucky Republican and his fellow lawmakers for their inaction in the face of climate change and for accepting huge sums of money from the fossil fuel industry and other polluters. This is the executive director of Sunrise Movement, Varshini Prakash.

Varshini Prakash: “We have known about this crisis for 40 years. And it was an emergency then. It’s a full-blown planetary crisis now. For 40 years we’ve seen the way that fossil fuel executives have misinformed the public on the science. We’ve seen the way that they have poured billions of dollars into the campaign coffers of politicians on both sides of the aisle. And we have seen the way that politicians like Mitch McConnell and the GOP elite have taken 80 percent of those oil and gas donations.”

The takeover follows a viral interaction with Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein over the weekend, in which she dismissed the young activists’ request to back the Green New Deal.

Climate Change May Cause Cloud Die-Off, Increase Rate of Warming

Feb 26, 2019

A startling new study in the publication Nature Geoscience finds that warming temperatures could lead to a major loss in cloud cover, pushing the Earth even more quickly toward a catastrophic climate “tipping point.” A new simulation revealed that stratocumulus clouds are at threat of disappearing within a century, which would add 14°F, or 8°C, of extra warming to the planet. Scientists believe we are currently heading toward a 4°C rise in temperature by the end of the century if humans don’t quickly change course, which could have devastating consequences for human life and trigger global crises at a rapid pace.
