Marco Rubio Delivers Word Salad About Climate Change 14.10.2018 Crooks Liars
Marco Rubio gave a word salad interview on CNN on Sunday morning regarding climate change. On one hand, he acknowledges that it is real, but he doesn't think studies can show how much mankind contributes (not true) and he doesn't think that making drastic changes is a good idea because it would hurt our economy too much. So strong economy is better than, you know, still having a viable planet for our grandchildren and great grandchildren to live on in 100 years? TAPPER: Speaking of experts, we can't specifically say that Hurricane Michael was so strong and devastating because of climate change, but there is scientific consensus that warmer waters are making storms such as Michael more devastating. U.N. outlined a dire global forecast, that Florida could lose more than 1 million homes by the end of the century due to rising sea levels because of climate change, which they say is man made. What do you say to constituents who ask why are you not one of the leaders in congress on this issue? RUBIO: I would ...

Larry Kudlow Colors New U.N. Report On Climate Change As A 'Scare Tactic' 14.10.2018 Crooks Liars
Donald Trump's economic advisor bashed the United Nations for over-hyping and overestimating the effects of climate change in their new report on ABC's THIS WEEK . Larry Kudlow claims he's not a climate change denier but threw in words like "scare tactic" while claiming he wasn't using words like "scare tactic" to describe how he feels about the flashing red light that is the new United Nations report. The NY Times writes : The report , issued on Monday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of scientists convened by the United Nations to guide world leaders, describes a world of worsening food shortages and wildfires, and a mass die-off of coral reefs as soon as 2040 — a period well within the lifetime of much of the global population. But in Kudlow's mind, we should all take a pause and keep researching the issue because it's difficult. (Transcript via ABC News ...

Suicide Isn’t Funny — Comedian Adam Cayton-Holland Discusses “Tragedy Plus Time” 12.10.2018 SirotaBlog
These are dark times -- we are facing a climate change crisis, rampant poverty and desperation, and now suicide rates in the United States are on the rise. On this episode, I talk to comedian Adam Cayton-Holland about his new book Tragedy Plus Time, which details his own relatives’ experience with suicide -- and examines how mental illness can strike even the most tight-knit families. The book is about both Adam's own career as a gifted stand up comedian, as well as his younger sister’s suicide six years ago. Adam is a Denver institution -- he founded the improv group called The Grawlix and he has a show on Tru TV called “Those Who Can’t.” He comes from a family that is a pillar of the community -- his dad is a renowned civil rights attorney and his mom was an investigative journalist. Adam’s book details his younger sister’s descent into the darkness -- and in the process, it provides a look at the silent plague of suicide, as well as the coping strategies for those whose families are hit by it.
