For instance, one cannot believe that climate change is both real and fake; such a viewpoint cancels itself out. Kelly Craft, who was confirmed to become the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, will be learning on the job.” “Trump’s U.N. Ambassador: I Don’t Have A Great Grasp On How The U.N.

The new rollback targets the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which the former first lady, Michelle Obama, actively promoted. It phased in healthier school meal rules with guidelines for nutrition, requiring school cafeterias to increase the servings of fruits and vegetables.” “Trump administration to roll back school lunch regulations on fruits and vegetables” www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/01/17/trump-adm... * “According to Brown University’s Costs of War Project, Washington has already spent at least $2 trillion on its war in Afghanistan alone and, as the Post made clear, the corruption, waste, and failure associated with those expenditures was (or at least should have been) mindboggling,” Mandy Smithberger—Director of the Center for Defense Information—writes via TomDispatch. “Rather than curtailing Pentagon spending, Congress continued to increase its budget, while also supporting a Department of Defense slush fund for war spending to keep the efforts going.” buff.ly/30IY184 Given the way the Pentagon has sunk taxpayer dollars into endless wars, in a more reasonable world that institution would be overdue for a comprehensive audit. “Never the Pentagon, How The Military-Industrial Complex Gets Away With Murder in Contract After Contract” www.pogo.org/analysis/2020/01/never-the-pentagon/?utm_sou... * "A gun is not merely a symbol; it is not like words or ideas.

This is the most manatees killed by boats ever recorded. Manatees are listed as a threatened species by the US Department of the Interior. In total, 545 manatees have died in Florida waters this past year with, death by natural causes being the leading factor. Officials aren't sure why so many manatees were killed by boaters in 2019, but Florida's human population has ballooned in recent years making it the third most populated state with nearly 22 million people. Coupled with Florida's lax boating restrictions, manatees are the natural victims.

Baloney. According to a new study, the average cost of administering health care in the United States is $2,497 per year versus just $551 in Canada's single-payer system. Why the big difference in cost? In the United States, private insurers spend billions on marketing budgets, executive salaries, and buying out their competitors. In fact, a third of the cost of hospitals is for billing private insurers. As a result, Americans end up paying more than resident of other industrialized nations, but have worse health outcomes. We can, and must, do better. What do you think?” “U.S. health system costs four times more to run than Canada’s single-payer system” www.latimes.com/science/story/2020-01-07/u-s-health-syste... * “"#NEPA is at the core of our democracy...it speaks to the 'human environment'." writes NRDC's Sharon Buccino. This means it takes real, human lives into account when evaluating the environmental impact of a project.
