The summit?s failure to come to any kind of agreement was a key factor in pushing climate change activists away from working within governmental channels and towards direct action fights, like Keystone.Why did Brokenhagen happen? Was it ju ...

Tinfoiled again: Why Donald Trump?s climate conspiracy theory doesn?t hold up

When chilling cold first descended in early January, we had an occasion to correct Donald Trump on climate science. To do so, we simply explained that the widely recognized phenomenon known as winter doesn?t refute global warming, especially since winter is inherently limited to one hemisphere. (In a widely lampooned tweet, Trump had cited ?record low temps? in arguing that ?this very expensive GLOBAL WARMING bullshit has got to stop.?)Alas, Trum ...
