1.2 million Africans shipped from what came to be known as the Gold Coast, most of them taken in chains from Cape Coast or Elmina. This beach has seen human tragedy on an awful scale.

The ecological catastrophe of Italy's Po River is a good example of a phenomenon I wrote about in 'The Nutmeg's Curse' - how climate change is undoing centuries of terraforming. Must read piece. twitter.com/BasuAshis/stat…

There are a lot of privileged liberals on this website who don’t seem mad at government decisions to immiserate millions of people. These liberals instead seem mad at those immiserated people for being unhappy with the Democrats who run the government. levernews.com/ending-pandemi…

Many of us have spent weeks in armored vehicles & traveling through backs of buildings bc of right-wing threats. You don’t hear much about it. @GOPLeader McCarthy said he wants to promote House members who incited violence. Their feigned horror at protest is a silencing tactic.

A poll just came out that showed the vast majority of gun owners, Democrat AND Republican support measures like Universal Background Checks and Red Flag laws. The most divided people in our country on this are not gun owners or Americans (left or right) it's 100 Senators.

A good way to understand the failure of the Democratic leadership is to just acknowledge that the GOP is competitive in every state (the governors of Vermont, Mass, and Maryland are Republican!) and Dems are barely competitive in blue states.

In looking at cam shots of the rapidly growing Washburn Fire in California's Sierras, my main takeaway, as ever, is the huge number of dead and dying trees in its path.

I'm sorry everyone, I hate being so stark and it takes a lot out of me, but this IS what the process of losing essentially everything looks like and feels like. We need to end fossil fuels as though our lives depend on it, because they do, and shift into climate emergency mode.

There have been several dozen terrorist attacks in the past few months waged against us in the form of mass shootings. This is not an issue of “mental health” or doors. This is a major national security issue representing a credible and serious threat to the American people.

“America’s new age of unregulated guns coincides with the growing militarisation of US society and the equivalent of a cold war in domestic politics”. Me on why US gun culture is getting worse - sadly much worse. ft.com/content/a66564…

The house should pass the most comprehensive gun safety bill in US history and then have the Senate vote on it again and again after every one of these shootings. Show the American people where these Senate republicans and moderate Dems who won’t abolish the filibuster stand.

I don’t care if you are a Democrat or Republican, own a gun or not. Saying that school shootings and mass shootings aren’t real is unacceptable and when people like Congresswomen Greene say things like this it must be rejected at every level by Republicans. This is wrong. twitter.com/patriottakes/s…
