    “If we don’t take collective action, ‘wildfires will be the new normal.'”
    Oregon Governor Kate Brown to Joy Reid: “There is absolutely no question that this is an unprecedented firestorm … We had over a million acres burn in the last four days. That is double the yearly average.”

      Trump and his Necro Party are pretending about the dire fate of the planet to please the KOCH brothers and the fossil fuel industry that funds them, and has bought their silence. To them there is no “greater good”. Trumpism is only about benefit to the small self. Biden has a very good plan. But we must have more because we are flat-out SOL on time. This is it.

    “There’s a huge amount of preparation that needs to be done given the complete absence of leadership from the current administration, and no time to waste.” (Jake Sullivan)

    “Prominent climate denier tapped for key NOAA position”
    “In 2007, (David) Legates was one of the authors of a paper that questioned previous findings about the role of climate change in destroying the habitat of polar bears. That research was partially funded by grants from Koch Industries, the American Petroleum Institute lobbying group and ExxonMobil, according to InsideClimate News…. Legates also appeared in a video pushing the discredited theory that the sun is the cause of global warming. In testimony before the U.S. Senate in 2014, Legates argued that a climate science report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change erroneously stated that humans are causing global warming.”

    “Dannehy Resignation Confirms Barr’s Intent to Use Durham Probe for Political Ends”
    “In the months leading up to Dannehy’s resignation,
    Barr started making public statements strongly hinting that he might release a report on Durham’s investigation before the 2020 election. The DOJ has longstanding norms against taking actions that may affect the outcome of an election. But Barr has erroneously reframed those norms and stated that Durham’s activity falls outside of them. Dannehy’s reported concern that there was pressure from Barr to release a report before the election makes the attorney general’s actions appear to be what skeptics always feared they were – naked partisan ploys.”
    (https://www.justsecurity.org/72414/dannehy-resignation-confirms-barrs-intent-to-use-durham-probe-for-political-ends/)
    –Assistant United States Attorney Nora Dannehy resigned.
    –Concerns that the investigative team is being pressured for political reasons by Barr.
    –To produce a report before the work is done – before the November election.
