Widely-Opposed Pipeline ‘Confirms Worst Fears’ After Two Spills Into Ohio Wetlands. We don’t need anymore fossil fuel infrastructure, we need renewables. These pipelines are simply being built so that massive carbon companies can squeeze a couple more years of profit out of the ground before their business model is made illegal. They must be stopped.
we know how much oil/gas/coal is in the ground. The value of these big carbon companies is based on the value of these proven reserves. We also know that if we burn all that oil/gas/coal that global warming will be unstoppable.
The stock value of these companies is dependent on the market continuing to believe that those proven reserves will be dug up and burned.
These companies are horribly over valued, because most of their “value” is in reserves that CAN NOT be used (if you value the future of civilization)
They will lie/cheat/steal/bribe basically do anything to make sure that the market and the general public continues to think everything is fine, if only to squeeze out one more year of profits. Get your money out of carbon stocks now, because this bubble is about to pop. They might have paid a lot of money to get Trump in office, but he can only delay the inevitable, renewables are too cheap, carbon fuels are too dirty, its only a matter of time before this entire industry goes down hard.
We just got a huge sign that the US intelligence community believes the Trump dossier is legitimate. The lesson here is don’t be stupid like Trump, don’t take money from the Russians.
Key Official in Trump-Russia Investigation Will Step Down, not good news, but also pretty shady timing.
Newtown school board asks Trump to denounce Alex Jones. The fact that they would even have to is shocking.

Monitor your congressperson:
Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.
