"Never mind that there’s little evidence that critical race theory — which, again, is a legal theory, not some pedagogical tool for young kids — is even taught in elementary schools. And never mind the fact that, as contributor Lena Mazel previously wrote in the Scene, Republicans can’t even agree on a clear definition for critical race theory. Despite all that, in May, Gov. Bill Lee signed into a law a ban on critical race theory, forced through by GOP lawmakers."

Global Warming is coming like a freight train!

The atmospheric burden of CO2 is now comparable to where it was during the Mid-Pliocene Warm Period around 3.6 million years ago, when concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere ranged from about 380 to 450 parts per million. During that time sea level was about 78 feet higher than today, the average temperature was 7°F (3.9°C) higher than in pre-industrial times, and studies indicate large forests occupied areas of the Arctic that are now tundra.

Donald Trump may be a stupid person but even Trump knew that fair and honest elections favor Democrats. He was so fearful of the ease of voting by mail that he was willing to destroy the US Postal Service to stop ballots from being counted. Expect Republicans to fight this to the death.

"House Resolution 1, which touches on virtually every aspect of the electoral process, was approved Wednesday night on a near party-line 220-210 vote. It would restrict partisan gerrymandering of congressional districts, strike down hurdles to voting and bring transparency to a murky campaign finance system that allows wealthy donors to anonymously bankroll political causes."

Ash borer invasion. Since slipping into the United States around the turn of the millennium, probably on a container ship, the emerald ash borer (EAB) has spread to 35 states and killed hundreds of millions of trees. Scientists have called it the most destructive forest pest ever introduced to North America.

TN Republicans are all up in a lather about transgenders in sports to hide their voter suppression because they don't think they can win an honest election. I don't think they can win an honest election either.

"A lot could be said about Tennessee lawmakers looking to ban transgender kids from playing sports. Like how Gov. Lee says that “I do believe that transgenders participating in women’s sports will destroy women’s sports” — as if state Rep. David Byrd isn’t single-handedly responsible for destroying women’s sports for more women (by allegedly kissing and harassing girls who played basketball for him when he was a coach) than any transgender kid has in the history of the state."
