Trump Assembles A Confederacy Of Dummies To Stymie Climate Science


Doubling Down On Climate Denial

The New York Times reports that senior White House staff members are considering the formation of a panel to attack the findings of the National Climate Assessment released last fall. One of the members of that panel will likely be William Happer, a physicist at Princeton who claims that there is no such thing as too much carbon dioxide. Trees and crops need it to grow, therefore it is, ipso facto, beneficial to humanity.

If 97% of climate scientists agree global warming is happening and human activity is largely responsible, Happer is solidly in the 3% who say exactly the opposite. In 2014, Happer stated publicly “the demonization of carbon dioxide is just like the demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler,” according to Esquire. “There is no precedent for something like this,” said Douglas Brinkley, a historian who has written books about five US presidents. “Other presidents have attacked policy initiatives, but not science.”

Adding insult to injury, Trump this week nominated Kelly Knight Craft to be the next US ambassador to the United Nations. In a 2017 interview, Craft stated she believes there are “scientists on both sides that are accurate.” The appointment has drawn fire from Republicans. R. Nicholas Burns, who served as under secretary of state for political affairs in the administration of George W. Bush, tells the New York Times, “She’s taken this bizarre position. She will find that in New York, at the Security Council, climate change is one of the top issues. If the representative of the world’s largest economy and one of the largest emitters doesn’t understand the science of this issue, it makes the U.S. look feckless and irresponsible.”

And who is Kelly Knight Craft? She is currently the US ambassador to Canada. And how did she get that job? Her husband, Joseph W. Craft III, is a billionaire coal magnate from Kentucky. He and his wife were major contributors to Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and donated to his inaugural committee. More evidence of the cesspool of corruption that Trump has enabled in Washington.

In response, we can only offer this satirical and all too accurate video brought to our attention recently by CleanTechnica reader Are Hansen. It’s 8 minutes long and well worth your time.

Indiana House amends bill to make driver's license gender changes harder

By: Matt McKinney

INDIANAPOLIS — A week after the Indiana BMV changed its policy to allow people to put an X for their gender on driver’s licenses, a House committee changed a bill to mark it harder for Hoosiers to do exactly that.

The BMV changes mean you can mark M, F or X. The third option was created for people who don’t identify as male or female.

If you want to change your gender on your driver’s license, you need a doctor’s note or an updated birth certificate.

House Republicans voted Wednesday to amend Senate Bill 182 to remove the doctor’s note option for changing your information at the BMV.

This means you would need an updated birth certificate if the bill becomes law. To update your birth certificate, you need a court order, a photo ID with a mailing address and a check for the applicable fees.
