Well, as long as the presidency is being occupied by a russian puppet we might as well protest in russian. It's not like the decisions are being made by native english speakers.

Neven — one of the world’s most beloved sea ice trackers — has again taken a break from his much-earned sabbatical to issue yet one more warning on the state of global sea ice. Hi…

Very possible the beginning of the extinction of the species. We are in the midst of the 6th global extinction event. #humanextinction

This is great
12 December 2016. Donald Trump and Russia: a timeline. I kept reading about Trump's many ties to Russia, but none of the news outlets ever presented a timeline, so I decided to assemble one myself with links to the source articles. I started in 2016, but I've been updating it every day or two as events ...

Because the people with the power to do something are so steeped in their own ideology they no longer believe in objective reality.

Endless hours spent at work create more problems than they solve. Work enough to earn a living then live your life.
 
Some workers are putting in hundreds of hours of overtime, leading to heart attacks and suicides. So the government is finally taking action.

It's becoming ever more clear that Donald J. Trump is Putin's Puppet. The racist republican party is so giddy with the thought of returning to power they have abandoned entirely their duty to protect and preserve the United States. We're in real trouble here.
 
Summary: 4 sources on Trump/Russia, not just the dirty dossier from Steele/Buzzfeed/CNN

^ Steele/dirty dossier
^ August, "head of an East European intelligence agency"
^ Indirect, active duty CIA -- more than 1 tape, Moscow, St. Petersburg
^ Intel re Russian $ going to Trump campaign

Summarized from this BBC article by Paul Wood:
Trump 'compromising' claims: How and why did we get here?

Ah, America fighting the proxy war with China for Russia, now that's a lovely idea.

Meanwhile, back in the U.S., the incoming administration is indulging in fits of reality denial. The world isn't going to wait for us to get our shit together on climate change. What they very well might do is punish the U.S. for refusing to check our fossil fuel burning.

Yes, they really can do that. Look at the last ten non-food purchases you made. How many were made in the U.S.? Not even five I would bet.
Donald Trump has often ridiculed global warming and promised to withdraw the U.S. from the global accord signed in Paris in 2015. Yet despite the change of political weather in Washington, the captains of business and finance gathered in Davos this week will spend a lot of time talking about climate change -- and how to make money from it.

+John Poteet you always elegant on issues of concern, however we need your forums, research institutions and individuals to raise awareness about the importance and essentially of a solid stand on face of any further denial to climate change theory.

So much for gradualism. Abrupt climate change is on the plate and swinging for the fences.

+Hank Stalica The question about how bad the clathrate effect will be remains open. The amount of methane available is huge; simply too high to comprehend unless you absolutely trust the numbers. The question of how fast it's being released is something we're still finding out.

The new Republican Party: if we don't do what they say they'll kill american children. Literally.

The Republicans are sounding less like a political party and more like international terrorists every day.

Story
Introduction
If you just added me to your circles and are wondering why I'm not circling you back right away.... It's because I can't have 4,000 people in my stream. If you're brilliant in comments and don't post I'll still circle you. If I've circled you and you're not much interested in my posts no biggie; leave me out of your stream.

I am a pessimist. If your world-view is unicorns-shitting-rainbows block me now. 

Anybody left? Good, we can get to work because optimists don't seem able to make a roof that doesn't leak or a foundation that sits above the water table instead of under it. Optimists build cruise ships that flop over and sink when holed. Optimists design economic structures that collapse like a house of cards in a slight breeze. 

We have to build a better world than the optimists will let us build. A world that expects that rain falls at inconvenient times and deals with it. A world that deals with climate change and ecological overshoot. A world that deals with people as we find them instead of as we wish them to be.
