Happy Wednesday! Let’s see what is happening with our speakers in this new year …

 

Annie Leonard, executive director of Greenpeace USA, told us on the “Democracy Now!” news hour: “Every day, Trump says something that makes us worried, but this may be the most terrifying yet. A nuclear-arms race is the last thing that the world needs. I think about climate change. I think about economic inequality. I think about all of these major threats that we’re facing as a country and as a world. Why would we add on top of that a totally manufactured, unnecessary threat?”

 

The Financial Times recently ran an excellent interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson, in which the interviewer actually asked science-related questions! Dr. Tyson’s at his best when asked a juicy science question!

 

Michael Mann presents a dismal view of climate change policy under President Trump.
