Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a 2014 documentary film which explores the impact of animal agriculture on the environment, and investigates the policies of environmental organizations on this issue. The film looks at various environmental concerns, including global warming, water use, deforestation, and ocean dead zones, and suggests that animal agriculture is the primary source of environmental destruction.

The Union of Concerned Scientists has disputed the film’s assertion that the majority of greenhouse gases driving climate change are produced by animal agriculture rather than fossil fuel emissions, which runs counter to scientific consensus.

Minimum wage workers can’t afford rent anywhere in the U.S., and Trump wants to make it worse

 

Laura Clawson Daily Kos Staff2018/06/14 ·

Decent housing remains out of reach for many American workers, the National Low Income Housing Coalition’s 2018 Out of Reach report confirms. As you can see on the map below, there’s not one state where a two-bedroom market-rate rental is possible on 40 hours a week of minimum wage work, even in states with a higher minimum wage than the federal rate of $7.25 an hour.

How much would you have to earn to rent a two-bedroom home? The national rate is $22.10, or $17.90 for a one-bedroom. Arkansas is the cheapest state—a worker would need to make $13.84 an hour to afford a two-bedroom rental there. But the Arkansas minimum wage is just $8.50.

Many renters are being paid more than minimum wage, of course. But the report estimates that the average renter’s hourly wage is $16.88—still below what a single adult would need to afford a one-bedroom apartment. People end up spending far more than they can afford on rent and struggling to pay their other basic expenses.

This is the reality nationally as the Trump administration pushes to cut federal affordable housing funding. Things are bad, and Team Trump only wants to make them worse.

Top Republicans flat-out lie about court case to

explain Trump’s brutal family separation policy

 

Kerry Eleveld  …….Daily Kos Staff……2018/06/14 · 12:18

As tragic reports of Donald Trump’s barbaric family separation policy get traction in the media, Republicans are trying to figure out how they can feign hints of sympathy without actually fixing the problem. In that vein, they are entirely lying about a 1997 settlement in a case called Flores, which set forth minimum standards for detaining unaccompanied minors.

Just to be crystal clear about this: No other administration has interpreted the Flores settlement to mean that kids of parents seeking asylum in the United States must be separated from them. That is absolutely the new and twisted logic of the Trump administration alone. In fact, what they are doing is prosecuting these parents for crossing the border before their asylum claims can be processed.

Nonetheless, House Speaker Paul Ryan lied about Flores Thursday when asked about Trump’s family separation policy
