Hawaii fires: Explosive blaze that razed Lahaina

‘Catastrophic’ wildfires in Maui killed dozens of people, burned buildings and decimated a town... Explosive wildfires on the Hawaiian island of Maui have killed dozens of people, displaced thousands and reduced much of the vibrant, centuries-old town of Lahaina to ash. As residents are beginning to return to the historic town, Hawaii is starting to reckon with the unfathomable loss left by the deadliest blaze in the US in a century. “What we’ve seen has been catastrophic,” said Josh Green, the governor." - The Guardian

HOW CHARLES KOCH PURCHASED THE SUPREME COURT’S EPA DECISION

"Decades of contributions aimed at influencing the judiciary bought the fossil fuel billionaire the ruling he’s always wanted. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and joined by conservative Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh, finds that the EPA does not have the authority to impose caps on carbon emissions by mandating a shift to cleaner energy sources." -  The Intercept

Environmental Voter Project

The Environmental Voter Project identifies millions of non-voting environmentalists and turns them into consistent voters. It estimates that over 8 million environmentalists did not vote in the 2020 presidential election and over 13 million skipped the 2022 midterms. The nonpartisan nonprofit focused on a simple, high-leverage solution to this problem: with a 7-year track record of success, we are accurately identifying these non-voting environmentalists and efficiently converting them into a critical mass of consistent voters that will soon be too big for politicians to ignore.
