Media never explain a basic reality: we're heading for >450 ppm of atmospheric CO2 and horrific 1.5°C-2°C of global warming by the 2030s. Climate justice action could yet limit the damage protecting people and species, but it won't happen if journalists remain shamefully silent.

Of all the empty, pointless statements that are periodically repeated by Western politicians, none is more empty and pointless than this: “There can be no military solution to this conflict.” In Afghanistan, there was a military solution: the Taliban won theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…

fascinating numbers from Andrew Tyndall. From 2015 through 2019 this is how many minutes network news covered Afghanistan: ABC: 16 CBS: 25 NBC: 16 less than on hour of coverage, total, over five years;

Pretty sure this will be as good as its “self-driving” autopilot, implicated in a number of deaths when people trusted it too much. (See Tesladeaths.com) Imagine the number of household accidents you could have in a kitchen. Even before adding children and animals. twitter.com/SawyerMerritt/…

The idea that Visa & MasterCard say using our cards to buy nudes is bad but buying AR-15s is OK, is the weirdest manifestation of America’s puritanical streak.

Won't get a vaccine because they don't know what's in it or what it will do to their bodies; will eat a hamburger from where the fuck ever for $2.99 and just assume that it's cow meat.

Just waiting for the Club Tropicana pic of Raab that will surely emerge in a paper this weekend. At which point his fate will be sealed and he’ll.. actually who are we kidding? If incompetence were a firing matter, Johnson would have to fire the whole Cabinet including himself.

At the end of today's programme I tried to summarise in 3 minutes the point we've reached with Afghanistan - both now and in the longer-term. The loss of a democracy and of US influence is part of that. Produced @MichaelCoxJ. bbc.co.uk/news/world-asi…

Interesting that Smokey da Bear (who, really is a root problem behind so much of our modern fires because we were too good for too long in ways that have built fuel load to the roof) is forgetting two huge ignition sources: Catalytic Converters and chains… twitter.com/smokey_bear/st…

I mean whatever, though. The Taliban killing you or chopping off one of your body parts just for existing is a small price to pay for them not deleting your social media posts about Hunter Biden or trans people, I guess 🤷‍♂️

I have to say though, I *am* excited for "If you can't consider that the Taliban might be right about something, you're clearly not into the marketplace of ideas," brought to you by The People Who Gave You 'Freedom Fries' and Cared A Lot About What The Dixie Chicks Said One Time

Say this is striking because if Ellwood is right a government with a majority of 80 would lose a vote over its handling of one of its most important foreign policy committments. Would be a bodyblow. twitter.com/lewis_goodall/…

God. So sad about Sean Lock. The first two minutes of this episode of 15SH made me laugh so much when it went out. Just a perfect set-up, delivered beautifully, all on the back foot. "What? It's only going to be... some Polish chemicals..." youtu.be/lQn7R3tU-oI

Having once been an Islamist myself (when I was much younger) I can tell you with the wisdom of hindsight that a lot of it is really about identity and very little of it is about spirituality. We feel humiliated by the West, and alienated from our own pre-colonial identities

Endeavour S4 E1 There’s a death in the swimming baths. Indignant lady on reception: “Our record is spotless. 1960 nobody died. 1961 nobody died. 1962..” Yet another reference (this to The Day Today: comedy.co.uk/tv/the_day_tod… ). The series is *stuffed* with them.
@charlesarthur contrarianism always seems like a key part of their appeal to their audiences. if the mainstream experts are also saying yeah, "hey, this seems like it works" it's harder to allege a cover-up or conspiracy theory and write your YT clickbait about what THEY aren't telling you.
