In a world first, the UK declares a climate emergency

In a victory for peaceful protest and the planet, the United Kingdom parliament is now the world’s first national legislative body to proclaim a climate change emergency. The decision comes on the heels of major protests by Extinction Rebellion that snarled London traffic for a week last month. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn proposed the emergency declaration. “Today, we have the opportunity to say, ‘We hear you,'” Corbyn told parliament. “By becoming the first parliament in the world to dec...

Rachel Held Evans, An Evangelical Christian Writer Who Questioned Everything About Her Faith, Has Died At 37

A growing number of states are aiming for clean energy

While President Donald Trump tries to ease environmental regulations and shirk responsibility for climate change, at the state level, the wind is blowing a different way toward clean energy and the elimination of greenhouse gases from electricity production. A growing number of states are pushing — and passing — renewable energy bills. Instead of generating power from finite sources like fossil fuel, they’re embracing solar, wind, geothermal and other renewable energy sources. On Earth Day, Nev...

Kind of… Before we get into their discovery, let’s discuss the Pantone Color of the Year and its significance… What is the Pantone Color of the Year? Pantone was founded in 1962 for the pur...

Rebuild Notre-Dame? No, Let’s Keep It As A Ruin (A #SlatePitch)

What’s a #SlatePitch? In keeping with the site’s original ambition to be anti-conventional wisdom, Slate has published an essay by writer and translator Bérengère Viennot (she’s the one who gets to translate Donald Trump’s speeches into French) arguing that the burned-out ruins of Notre-Dame should be preserved as “a memento mori of the 21st century.” – Slate

Donald Trump Meeting Mao Zedong Could Be The Salvation Of Cantonese Opera

Wait, what? Yes, a new work in the traditional Cantonese opera format shows a young Donald Trump meeting the Chairman on a trip to China in 1972.

Atlantic City: 'Trump turned this place into a ghost town'

Is Donald Trump Really A Great Novelist?

Richard North Patterson: “The aim of the novelist is to enlist others in his fantasies, immersing them in an alternative reality so emotionally compelling that they willingly suspend disbelief. Trump has dangerously conflated this sort of storytelling with real-life presidential leadership, casting himself in the role of the archetypal savior-hero, battling the forces of evil. He’s our first novelist in chief.” – The Atlantic

Crucial animal protection laws for the sage grouse being eliminated by the White House

How Fox News Became The Propaganda Arm Of The Trump White House

Strange as it may seem today, there was a point at which the network was very skeptical of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency. Now Fox News personalities appear with Trump at political events and give him policy advice, both on and off the air. Jane Mayer does a deep dive into how the change happened, who tried to keep it at bay (Roger Ailes!), and who chose not to stop it. – The New Yorker

Netflix’s Sendup Of The Art World Is A Blast At Elites

Phil Kennicott: “This is a perfect film for the age of Donald Trump, a revenge fantasy perpetrated against elites, who are caricatured as venal, corrupt and beyond redemption. And despite a few attempts on the director’s part to distinguish authentic art from his parody of art as a vast con game, the film ends on a profoundly anti-art note.” – Washington Post

Trump portrait: you couldn’t create a creepier Yuletide scene if you tried

The formal smartness of the US president and the first lady adds to the emotional numbness of the scene.The absence of intimacy in the Trumps’ official Christmas portrait freezes the heart. Can it be that hard to create a cosy image of the presidential couple, perhaps in front of a roaring hearth, maybe in seasonal knitwear? Or is this quasi-dictatorial image exactly what the president wants to project? Look on my Christmas trees, ye mighty, and despair! If so, it fuels suspicions that it is onl...
