    Global Warming

    So twitter’s new ban on political ads has had the unfortunate side-effect of also banning ads from groups that are fighting climate change.

    So exhausting. It’s science not politics. As long as this issue is conflated this way nothing will change (aside from the climate)

    • Its so obvious he didnt killed himself. Too many powerful people to protect. All this story is disgusting.Bennn
    • this needs its own threadmoldero
    • in that power position...he probably isn't even dead.uan
    • What's just as bizarre is how fast the story disappeared. Between this and Russia's influence, it really does feel like we are living in an alternate world.formed
    • They also buried the Harvey Weinstein story at first. It could be something as simple as not wanting to go against a rich and well-connected person.yuekit
    • Probably someone at ABC loved fucking children.PhanLo
    • Doesn't make Alex Jones, Joe Rogan or David Icke sound that crazy, huh? Imagine how deep we can get if we fall down that rabbit hole.Maaku
    • This in no way validates anything Alex Jones or David Icke says. And Joe Rogan is kind of just a dumb, gullible guy that gives airtime to anybody.garbage

    • It would seem NBC, CBS & ABC are all more interested in outing / firing their leakers than being caught for covering up for a Pedofile. Disgusting.PonyBoy
    • Instead of speaking up about their cover-up ABC spent all efforts hunting down who they thought leaked this tape... right to their new job @ CBS.PonyBoy
    • CBS instantly fired the poor girl... and it turns out she wasn't even the leaker (according to Proj. Veritas and a Megyn Kelly interview today)PonyBoy
    • It doesn't validate any of their claims but they've all brought up the pedophile rings one way or the other.Maaku
    • They are capable of these atrocities, I'm not surprised if there's more to it.Maaku

    anyone here using services like blueapron.com or hellofresh.com?

    Curious how happy you are w/the price / service / quality / freshness / difficulty to cook etc...

    • I question the packaging waste as well but can't complain about the freshness of the food - we buy most of our groceries from a local co-op so it pales inben_

    • @Bon Yeah the recipes were off on mine as well, and the packaging was a disaster.garbage

    • Blue Apron ships ~10 million pound of plastic packaging a year. Some of these kits ship individually wrapped garlic cloves.i_monk
