  Democracy Then and Democracy Now

Part II

  • I guess now that Trump is pulling out of , considers the deal it once admitted was "dangerous" as "landmark"
  • It seems wishes Trump would stay in the crap deal. That's something they share in common with Exxon:

      [Link to CNN Money]

  •   I believe issue is less whether the deal is good or not and more that it's a step in the direction of suicide
  •   If it was a Kucinich Administration pulling out of Paris climate agreement then I assume DN and others would view it differently, more
  •   comparable to Ortega [Syria?] and Nicaragua who don't sign up as it doesn't go far enough
  •   I think it exposes a certain level of partisan hypocrisy in Democracy Now, if this was their only bad coverage I'd give them a break
  •   But the Trump era has made it clear to me the org has no soul, is willing to capitulate to empire on issues like Russia and Syria
    1. End of conversation
  • their slide has been sad to watch
  • What is your point? said the Paris Accord did not do enough to tackle global warming. Obviously, scrapping the accord is worse
  • They opposed it because they believed, as most climate scientists and activists know, that it didn't go far enough to protect (1/x)
  • vulnerable populations, such as the islanders of places like the Maldives. 2°C is a death sentence for their entire country & heritage (2/x)
  • Equating people pushing for a stronger, more rational, more compassionate deal with those who entirely oppose any deal is unconscionable 3/x
    1. End of conversation
  • one-sided deal calls on US to curb Carbon emissions while China India others increase their emissions not fair to US
  • More replies
    alternative media bullshit is still media bullshit
