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.

Dahr Jamail: Unpacking The IPCC Report & Abrupt Climate Disruption

Last Born in the Wilderness Podcast
Published on Nov 9, 2018

In this segment of my discussion with award-winning environmental journalist Dahr Jamail, we address the recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). I ask Dahr unpack the data and projections regarding anthropogenic climate change presented in the report, with Dahr noting that the report excludes much of the more recent and varied data regarding the non-linear, exponential change inherent in abrupt climate disruption as a result of human industrial activity over the past several centuries. The direct implication inherent in the information Dahr presents in his work regarding the global climate crisis points to the very likely inability for the human species to adapt to the rapid change relating to abrupt climate disruption, in great part due to the growing inability to grow food at scale, wide-spread conflict and resource depletion, catastrophic weather change and dramatic sea-level rise inundating coastal cities, as well as other wide-spread changes relating to abrupt climate disruption.

Dahr Jamail is an award-winning journalist who regularly reports on climate disruption and environmental issues for the online publication Truthout. Prior to his work reporting on environmental issues, Dahr was one of only a few unembedded journalists to report extensively from Iraq during the US led invasion in 2003. Dahr is the author of multiple books, including the upcoming book ‘The End Of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption,’ set for release January 15, 2019.
