Graphic evidence on climate disruption that would be undeniable (if evidence mattered)

"The clear and powerful data will instantly silence your climate science denier friends."

The Sightline Institute writer who pointed out these terrific graphs is just a tad naive about how denial works (her comment above).

But still, this is a truly great visual presentation that would, if evidence mattered, matter a great deal.

It's been a tough session - end with something good: Let the Senate Vote on National Popular Vote

Senator Courtney:

I know it's been a very tough session, from its strange beginning to its brutal ending.  You've done some good and you've seen some bad done too. There's one important thing left to do:

Let the Senate VOTE on whether Oregon should join the National Popular Vote compact.

Let proponents and opponents make the case — but don't keep strangling this off-stage. If there are arguments against making sure that America's only nationally elected figure has to get a majority of Americans' votes, lets hear them.

Sincerely, your constituent,

"Let's live on the planet as if we intend to stay."
