This was a nice development the other day. Meet the Press did a whole hour on climate change Sunday. No climate change deniers invited.

Climate Change Should Kill the Act of God

https://slate.com/technology/2019/01/act-of-god-climate-change-legal-environmental-defense.html

Quote:
While specific weather events such as hurricanes or fires may seem to be acts of God, our growing knowledge of climate systems challenges any vision of weather divorced from human activity. Humans meddle with the climate, which meddles with weather, and the two can’t be disentangled.

Incredibly sobering, stat-filled and long read from an author who almost lost his life on a glacier:

This is nothing new. DoD has been planning with climate change in mind for years now.

Vox compiles it's climate change articles/news in one place.
I don't see it right away, but it has a 4 Min video -narrated demo on how climate change with CO2 works. A middle school demo of sorts. but good.

It is a nice resource if you have friends/family that don't get it... Though no point arguing facts science with deniers.

Soundbites like these aren't helping the cause:

Quote:
During an event honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) cautioned the audience that climate change would “destroy the planet” by the year 2031 if people fail to address a generational challenge she likened to “Word War II.”

“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’” Ocasio-Cortez told interviewer Tanehisi Coates at an “MLK Now” event in New York.

Guess you better take that up with...(checks notes) THE UNITED NATIONS if you have a problem with that "soundbite."
