Sorry, Greta Thunberg, but you’re (mostly) wrong

Sorry, Greta Thunberg, but you’re (mostly) wrong

“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words…People are suffering. People are dying.” Greta Thunberg’s impassioned speech at the UN’s Climate Action Summit was a remarkable act of courage.

Advertisement This administration has quietly cut funding for research and sent the scientific community unsubtle signals about its disinterest in the truth. In the first two years of the Trump...

Pay it forward: Amidst the coronavirus outbreak, America needs to give sick hourly workers a way to stay home

Kudos to Mayor de Blasio and the City Council for writing paid sick leave into law here back in 2014. Enforcement , but at least New York...
