Donald Trump is a creep and unpleasant to look at, but at least he’s not a stunning hypocrite when it comes to climate change

Donald Trump is so spectacularly horrible that it’s hard to look away – especially now that he’s discovered bombs.

February 27, 2017 - Beware climate science deniers bearing gifts or, in the case before us right now, bearing open letters claiming to have hundreds of signatures from “eminent” scientists.

Lawyers working on a review of how the Toronto Dominion bank is investing in the Dakota Access pipeline said it has not idea when the project will be complete.

In December, the bank issued a statement stating that it would undertake a review after protesters blocked several branches in Canada and the United States in an effort to get the bank to stop investing in the Dakota Access pipeline.
