Tax Plan or GOP Scam?

National Climate Assessment

Issue

The National Climate Assessment is prepared by our top scientists and is by far the largest, most comprehensive US-focused climate change report ever produced and gives in-depth look on climate change.

The findings point to humanity as the cause for this extreme weather pattern. Many independent lines of evidence demonstrate the world is warming and human activity is the primary cause.

Other changes flow from this warming, including melting of snow and ice, rising sea level, and increases in some types of extreme weather, such as extreme heat and heavy downpours.

End Crimes Against Journalists

Other

An increasing number of journalists have been targeted in 2017 because of the work they do. They have been subject to physical assault, imprisonment, court convictions, arbitrary detention, interrogation, stalking, verbal attacks, online threats, and seizure of equipment. In some cases, their family members have also been targeted.

The perpetrators of these attacks are almost never held accountable. In the overwhelming majority of cases, authorities have acted with impunity, and non-state actors have gone unpunished. Instead, reporters are the ones who are treated as criminals.

Who's the angry character that refuses to take responsibility for anything and will accuse anyone in order to pass the blame on to someone else but himself?

The fact is, everyone who's in a position of power is to blame when something goes wrong. The public blames politicians, but they are professional blame deflectors and the wheels go round and round.
