The only winning move is not to play

It is just starting to become clear just how fucked up the US elections was this year. Not that any election really is a bundle of happy ecstasy, but this one was something special.

Trumps motivation is obviously the same as it has always been; money. The names he has picked from his hat so far emphasize this. Just look at Myron Ebell, another climate change denier with a major in philosophy and no scientific education whatsoever.

Julie Borowski wants to bring back DDT

At first I thought Julie was trolling when I watched her video on why we should bring back DDT to combat Zika. Sadly, I don’t think she is, so yet again I shall have the honor of shooting down her argument. This is a whole new level of stupid tho.

Julie Borowski don’t understand coal

The stupid is strong with this one… Julie Borowski just uploaded a video on how killing coal is a bad thing. She apparently comes from a long lineage of coal miners, so she gets how important coal is to fight poverty and put food on the table. And in the process, she fails to see the whole picture.

I guess the feedback on that video got a bit heated, as she disabled the comments within a few hours of uploading. She has since re-enabled them, which she deserves a gold star for. That does not however make her argument any more valid.
