New York to divest from fossil interests.

Post by Animavore » Thu Jan 11, 2018 9:21 am

While Trump's scumbag, destructive, and corrupt administration attempts to doubled-down on fossil and actually suggest more substidies and funds to stimulate the failing coal industry all for his industry pay masters (drain the swamp, right ;) ) and open up national parks to ecological destruction at a crucial time in humanity's history when all the experts are telling us we need to keep fossil fuels in the ground, the state of New York wants to take the more moral, wise, and and practical step of divesting from fossil.

Oh, and while they are at it; they are suing the industry for knowing well in advance about the harms of climate change and burying the evidence, sponsoring a campaign of information, and willfully allowing harm to the planet at a cost.

Well done that state. :clap:


Oh. And fuck Trump.

Go nuclear!
“When I was in college, I took a terrorism class. ... The thing that was interesting in the class was every time the professor said ‘Al Qaeda’ his shoulders went up, But you know, it is that you don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity, you don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity,” she continued. “... But you say these names [Al Qaeda] because you want that word to carry weight. You want it to be something.” - Ilhan Omar

They did that once, didn't they? It didn't go too well...

edit: I see that was Pennsylvania.

Japan, I thought. They tried a couple of scenarios. Meltdown vs airburst - which is better?
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

New York is made from pure ego. It'd withstand both.
What will the world be like after its ruler is removed?
