Eco-News Roundup: Tuesday, July 28


Today’s science, health, and environment posts from our other blogs:

Above the law? James Ridgeway on the possibility of jury nullification in the abortion doctor killing case

File under “totally obvious”: Texting while driving is a pretty bad idea.

The problem with private: Health insurance companies are all well and good if you’re healthy, but they avoid sick people like the plague.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
