Bipartisan neglect of climate change, PATRIOT Act extended, ‘legal’ Israeli settlements in Palestine
President Obama sucked on climate change. The GOP are actively bad on climate too, but it’s important to remember that inaction on climate is bipartisan. This show kicks off with a look back at how the DNC, the GOP, and the corporate media have allowed global warming to develop to the point of an existential crisis. Under Obama they slapped BP on the wrist for filling the Gulf Sea with oil and the Paris Climate Accord failed to address the scientific reality of what needs to be done to control the greenhouse effect. Under Trump things have only gotten worse. In ‘Taking The News From Behind’, Lee looks at the British election, the extension of the PATRIOT Act, Facebook’s role in the development of facial recognition software, and more.
Anders Lee sits down with Lee to discuss Israel. The US recently decided to classify the Israeli settlements in Palestinian territories as legal, despite them being very illegal. It’s hard to know what will happen there as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will face corruption charges. Naomi Karavani closes the show out with a report on an explosion that happened last week at a Texas chemical plant. The explosion happened soon after the Trump administration loosened regulations on the industry.
