AG Lynch: DOJ Has Discussed Whether to Pursue Civil Action Against ...

I am old enough to remember the fights over DDT, the Ozone hole, tobacco smoke, acid rain, and presently, global warming. At the same time, a small and powerful subset of society denies these dangers. 

Merchants of Doubt, historians Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway explain how a loose–knit group of high-level scientists, with extensive political connections, ran effective campaigns to mislead the public and deny well-established scientific knowledge over four decades.”

“ the ideology of free market fundamentalism, aided by a too-compliant media, has skewed public understanding of some of the most pressing issues of our era.” 

“It's an organized effort to undermine 30+ years of scientific evidence and study and make a "debate" where none is warranted. There are no scientists debating this because the evidence is clear - as clear as it was for cigarettes in the '90s.”

~ Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants of Doubt

Just a reminder to our friends inside the heat dome, playgrounds are often asphalt covered too.

I suffer from Republican "representation" too, due to the area in which I live (and probably gerrymandering and voter restriction too).

For those who don't care so much about the extinction of one obscure mammal, remember that heat and sea level rise are also affecting global food production. You eat, right?

Even the folks (not on AN!) on the fringe who distrust science, and prefer Natural!!! remedies (as if everything is wonderful except for human activity -- shades of "original sin"?), should be concerned about losing biodiversity! There's plenty we can learn from how various living things have adapted to meet their challenges, and plenty of undiscovered chemicals that might be extremely useful if not lifesaving.

How do they know it wasn't a virus?  Or seagulls, or some other malady?  How do they know it was due to climate change?  And how do they know it is anthropogenic CO2 that caused the dastardly deed?
