Stripped of the false realities of democracy, legitimate media authorities, and American exceptionalism, U.S. society is having a “psychotic break” of sorts. What many Americans have previously believed to be “reality” is disintegrating. Science provides us with no monolithic explanation for what is commonly called a psychotic break, but for some people who have lived this experience, they describe their …

Americans believe climate change connected to location and local weather

A new study finds local weather may play an important role in Americans’ belief in climate change.

Jessica Shankleman – China Tells Trump That Climate Change Is No Hoax It Invented

China couldn’t have invented global warming as a hoax to harm U.S. competitiveness because it was Donald Trump’s Republican predecessors who started climate negotiations in the 1980s, China’s Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin said. U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush supported the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in initiating global warming talks even before China knew that negotiations …

Graham Readfearn – How climate science deniers can accept so many ‘impossible things’ all at once

Sometimes, climate science deniers will tell you that we can’t predict global temperatures in the future. Sometimes, they’ll say we’re heading for an ice age. Occasionally, contrarians will say that no single weather event can prove human-caused global warming. But then they’ll point to somewhere that’s cold, claiming this disproves climate change. Often, deniers will tell you that temperature records …

John Perkins – Confessions of a Panama Papers Hit Man

The Panama Papers should be no surprise. I was there in the 1970s, when the system they’ve exposed was set in motion. As an Economic Hit Man (an EHM), I helped forge this global economy that is based on legalized crimes.

Dylan Matthews – America’s biggest housing program is run by the IRS, and it’s a huge giveaway to rich people

The mortgage interest tax deduction is a garbage policy. It’s hugely regressive: 52 percent of the benefit goes to the richest 10 percent of Americans, and only 0.1 percent of the benefit goes to the poorest 20 percent.

Big Oil Knew. Big Oil Lied. And Planet Earth Got Fried. – Jon Queally

They knew. They lied. And the planet and its people are now paying the ultimate price. It’s no secret that the fossil fuel industry—the set of companies and corporate interests which profit most from the burning of coal, oil, and gas—have been the largest purveyors and funders of climate change denialism in the world. Now, a new set of documents and …
