I was out of the office last week and missed this, but it’s still worth posting. Peter Sinclair over at Climate Denial Crock of the Week has an excellent video putting this summer’s record heat and catastrophic weather events into context, while calling out the skeptics:

I happened to be home in New Jersey over the weekend for the crazy storms and flooding there. Parts of South Jersey got more than 10 inches of rain on Sunday; I thought I was going to need a pontoon to get home. The damage from the storm is expected to cost the county $20 million. It doesn’t take a weatherman to know that things are wacky out there.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
