The Daily PlanetWatch for Tuesday, July 9
- In a speech yesterday, President Trump touted his administration's "environmental leadership". It was a moment made all the more surreal as the metro Washington, D.C. area experienced record-busting rainfall, with a month's worth of rain coming down in a single hour. A moment blithely ignored by Trump, whose purported leadership is '"sending us to a climate disaster."
- There is no "away". Ah, the convenience of modern life. When you're done using something, just throw it away! Many countries, for which have become the destination for "away," have had enough.
- Getting back to the Trump Administration's environmental leadership, a whistle-blower in the U.S. says he was pressured by his boss to reverse a decision to protect endangered species to make way for a golf course. That's got Trump written all over it.
