Six In The Morning: It’s Mondableurgh

6-in-the-morning1 DANGEROUS CLIMATE CHANGE IS ALMOST GUARANTEED NOW Well, I guess the planet’s political and economic leadership fucked us, didn’t it? We should have responded to climate change in a slow, measured and minimally disruptive way over multiple decades. It’s too late for that now. In other news I’m going to get kicked out of a movie theatre soon for screaming at the Cenovus yay-tarsands ad that runs in front of everything. The one with the line  “Canada: it’s spelled with a “can”, not a “can’t.”

2 OH YEAH, AND GUESS WHICH FOSSIL FUEL-LOVING COUNTRY WILL HEAD UP THE ARCTIC COUNCIL FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS? Go on. Guess.

3 DESPITE ALL THAT, THE WEATHER IS NASTY TODAY Beware of roads, sidewalks, the outdoors, etc.

4 NOT PLAYING WELL WITH OTHERS Wasn’t there just an election? U.S. Republicans are once again using a routine but critically important procedural vote to hold the U.S. economy hostage and get their way on taxes and spending. The Guardian has a backgrounder, while The New Yorker has a nice little parody.

5 AFGHANISTAN TEENAGER MURDERED FOR REFUSING MARRIAGE My staunch opposition to the death penalty gets a little less staunch when I read about an unfathomable hate crimes against female children like this.

6 HELP MY FAMILY A cancer-stricken refugee claimant in Saskatoon makes his plea.

BONUS! Egypt sucks, Israel sucks, dolphins suck, serial killers suck in Hell and Alberta’s premier is in big doo-doo.
