Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math | Politics News | Rolling Stone
So, both of these things have now happened in a single 6-month period. The CNN coverage of the latter has been goddamn sponsored by Clean Coal and other similar right wing energy company propaganda ads, and nobody involved in shaping the mainstream conversation about these issues is batting an eye. I think we have our answer now. We’re soooo fucked.
What I continue to wonder is, where is the counter-propaganda from all of the industries that stand to lose big in the Grim Meathook Future? Insurance and agriculture have a shitload of money. There’s even more than that in coastal real estate around the country. We also just saw how vulnerable tech and online companies are to infrastructure disruption in this storm. If the process must be bought, can’t there at least be some competitive bidding?
I truly almost just threw up. what is it going to take?
the insurance companies KNOW and ACKNOWLEDGE that climate-change-driven disasters are on the rise. why doesn’t that create any political or capitalist pressure?
is the oil industry really that powerful and that evil? or are we just that thick-headed?
