    The Amazon Forest, which provides about 20% of our oxygen is currently burning. Sorry I don't have the time to pretend that I care that one half of the libertarian hit squad is dead.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.
    _____

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    Cause of death probably was due to his heart being unable to handle the excitement when he first heard this news.

    I can care about two things at once. Few have funneled more money into downplaying the climate crisis more than them, and hopefully that is their legacy. Villainous ****.

    Not they're legacy of Philanthropy, you know the Sloan-Kettering Hospital where RBG received cancer treatment has a wing named after him from when he donated 150 million.

    He's donated significantly more money to charity than he has politics.

    And it still doesnít excuse backing climate deniers and citizen united and the rest of his detestable actions.

    Good people just do good. They donít hide their **** actions with good deeds.

    Kochís care about their own industry more than the good of the world.

    Actually no it's not. At least not in the way that people are freaking out about.

    From the Failing NYT.
    https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...fire-maps.html
    Mr. Cochrane noted that while a large majority of the fires were on land that had already been cleared, many others were detected burning with particular intensity. He said these were likely deforestation fires, not just fires for clearing previously deforested land.

    ďWhen you slash an area, pile it up, let it dry and then burn it, it burns very intensely, and thatís also what puts off a lot of that smoke,Ē said Mr. Cochrane.

    There has been a rise in deforestation in recent years, after a long period of decline.
    Basically these are lands that have been cleared and they leave the fallen trees to dry out THEN they burn them.

    But the Amazon itself isn't on fire.

    But didn't you hear the good news?

    Going forward, the Koch network will operate under the umbrella of Stand Together, a nonprofit focused on supporting community groups. The stated priorities of the restructured Koch network include efforts aimed at increasing employment, addressing poverty and addiction, ensuring excellent education, building a stronger economy, and bridging divides and building respect
    The Koch's always seemed crazy to me. Maybe evil, maybe not, but crazy.

    Yes Soros and his humanitarian efforts. How dare that evil liberal bastard. The Koch's defended America's right to pollute the environment without the evil government putting in place pesky workplace safety and environmental rules. Dang Guberment
