Eco-News Roundup: Wednesday, July 29

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Blue-Marble-ish posts on our other blogs, for your Wednesday morning reading pleasure:

Obama not following doctor’s orders? Obama’s GP thinks the president is wrong about healthcare.

O’Reilly: oh, really? Bill O’Reilly thinks Americans don’t live as long as Canadians because “we have ten times as many people as you do. That translates to ten times as many accidents, crimes, down the line.” Really.

Cash for kidneys: The case for paying people to donate organs might be logical, but Kevin Drum isn’t convinced.

Blue Dogs won’t budge: Lawmakers who oppose a public healthcare option often represent the very districts that would benefit most from such a plan.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
