Eco-News Roundup: Friday July 30

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.


Safe! New poll shows there’s enough support for health care reform to keep it in place.

Uncertain on Caps: Conservatives want a climate solution, but killed the surest option.

Summer Sun: Letting inmates bake in triple-digit heat is torture at GITMO, but not in US prisons.

Helping Hand: Media outlets are helping BP pretend there’s no more oil to clean up.

Kid Speak: An interview between a state senator and advocates to help special needs kids.

Double Standard: Katy Perry’s racy video is YouTube’d, but a gay parody gets banned.

 

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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
