Mon, 02/16/2015
Tom Becker reads from Zoë Carpenter's article in The Nation, "We Cannot Geoengineer Our Way Out of the Climate Crisis."

Carpenter argues that attempts by humans to change the climate (such as shooting a huge amount of sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere to deflect sunlight) are so fraught with unpredictable consequences that it would be insane to make the attempt. Yet the attempt may become necessary if we don't reduce CO2 emissions. 7:56 minutes (5.45 MB)

Before a few words regarding the crimes of Enbridge:
What kind of people pay ttentioon to a pack of media weaselcunts who try convict and sentence their state's Governor before the investigation has even begun?
Oregonian weaselcunts, that's who.
When we have  Republican Governor signing off of Death Train, the Pacific Connector, oil freight terminals poisoning the Pcific Ocean, When we have the eastern deserts burning coal for thousands of miles around the train tracks, when we have mass extinctions of wildlife, when we have cut the last living tree, killed off every living thing...
Will you be happy then?
You got rid of Kitz, one of our greatest statesmen.
History will spit in your face.

What do Japan's Blue Sky Library, Malaysia's answer to John Wayne, and the first recorded composer from New Zealand, all have in common?

On your mark..Get set…BLOW!
Because the Supreme Court this week ruled on the wide of Federal Air Marshall Robert Maclean.  What this means for you and I is simply this:  it is no longer legal for lawmakers to make laws after the fact.  If fyou reveal a serious breach of workplace safety, for example, it is no longer legal for a law to suddenly appear making your actions illegal.
And we have Robert Maclean to thank.
This is a major  victory in its implications for future whistleblower cases. The Court’s decision in Department of Homeland Security v. Robert MacLean curtails the government’s manipulation of pseudo-classified information to punish whistleblowers, and strengthens the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA). 11:00 minutes (7.56 MB)

Only her love for her brother keeps her afloat, but he will soon leave for college. Themes of racism and feminism weave through this heartbreaking novel.
