The World Says “No Big Deal” To Trump’s Exit From The Paris Agreement

My regularly scheduled Wendy Williams Show watching was interrupted for a “Breaking News” bulletin where President Donald Trump exited from his sunless tanner bath to announce that the USA would be leaving the Paris Climate Agreement. While many politicians, CEO’s, and others voiced their displeasure with the announcement, it appears that days afterwards this really isn’t that big of a deal. Continue reading

The Weekly Round Up: February 19-25

Welcome back to the Weekly Round Up!  If this is your first time here, it’s nice to meet you!  Grab a seat, get comfortable, settle in- cause it’s been an interesting week.  We’ve got some shitty stuff- like more microplastics in our oceans than imaginable and an end to the on ground protests against the DAPL- but also some really great stuff- like California moving to save the environment from Trump and some bee research that is seriously cool.  Honestly, the bee research is real fascinating.  So without further ado, let’s dive in!

Welcome back to this week’s Round Up.  I hope you all had a lovely week, and are ready to catch up on all of this week’s environmental news.  I might be writing this a little last minute (and there’s tons of news to go over), so get ready for a rapid fire update this week.  We had solar roof panels, idiots on the internet, and the haka.  So without further ado, here are the articles that turned our heads this week.

I love it when academics get catty, because it makes a bitch fight look way classier! Brace yourself because the United Nations just called out the Paris Agreement and all of its contributing countries in a new report that claims the agreement won’t do enough to offset climate change! Like that passive aggressive roommate we all have to live with at least once in our lives, the UN points out that the Paris Agreement is moving the ball forward in the right direction, but it’s moving slower than Donald Trump on the uptake (I’m paraphrasing here)!  Continue reading

How are stick insects, Fiji, pandas, and Jiff the Pomeranian all connected?  Obviously because I’m going to talk about all of them in this week’s Weekly Round Up!  I don’t even want to give any more of an explanation than that- I feel like Jiff the Pomeranian should be enticing enough on its own.  I mean who is this Jiff, and what did he do?  So settle in, because I’m about to explain everything to you.

The Weekly Round Up: September 21-26

Happy Saturday everyone!  This week the news was all about good guys and bad guys.  On the side of good we’ve got Leonardo DiCaprio and nature megaphones, and on the side of bad we’ve got Volkswagen and Brad Pitt- kinda like Pocahontas.  The hero DiCaprio must use his wits and the sounds of nature to fight off the evil Brad Pitt and his VW empire Hollywood give me a call.  If that doesn’t interest you, however, I don’t know what will- so let’s jump into this week’s Weekly Round Up!
