Cruel Move: US Supreme Court Justice John Roberts Has Delayed the "Trial of the Century" Last Updated on 2018-10-24 14:49:20 “We are 6 business days from a trial we have been preparing for for 3 years. The lengths my own government is going to to get this case thrown out and avoid trial is absurd and offensive.

Responding to Maas's "Vote No on 1631" Last Updated on 2018-10-22 22:15:01 Even as the number of endorsements grows for I-1631, including heavy weights Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg, and cities across the state like Seattle, Tacoma, Mercer Island and little Langley on Whidbey Island, the anti-campaign heats up driven by millions of dollars from oil companies in Texas.

We have to put out the fire,” said Erik Solheim, executive director of the U.N. Environment Program  The bottom line, the report found, is that the world is woefully off target. “Net zero must be the new global mantra”- To avoid surpassing 1.5 C rise we must reduce GHG emissions precipitously by 2030.
