Eco-News Roundup: Friday June 25

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Cough, Cough: Did the anti-vaccine activism help create a whooping cough outbreak?

Healthy Anniversary: On health reform’s anniversary there’s still lots of work to do.

View From Here: Healthcare has gotten a lot of media coverage, some of it confusing.

Coming Soon: A Democratic-led climate and energy bill is being debated.

Fast and Famine: In Niger, people are starving because they can’t afford food.

Spill to Thrill?: Is Obama’s new spill commission just a show?

One Man’s Poison: BP’s oily disaster may benefit “clean coal.”

Raw Hides: An Iranian cleric calls dogs “un-Islamic” as Baghdad euthanizes strays.

Twilight Zone: Wingnuts ask if the Bermuda Triangle or the Jews caused the oil spill.

Goon Squad: Local police are doing BP’s dirty work for them, like harassing activists.

Drill, Baby, Drill: Louisiana Tea Partiers want more drilling and they made signs that say so.

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
