Recalculating the Climate Math

BY BILL MCKIBBEN

The future of humanity depends on math. And the numbers in a new study released Thursday are the most ominous yet.

Those numbers spell out, in simple arithmetic, how much of the fossil fuel in the world’s existing coal mines and oil wells we can burn if we want to prevent global warming from cooking the planet. In other words, if our goal is to keep the Earth’s temperature from rising more than two degrees Celsius—the upper limit identified by the nations of the world—how much more new digging and drilling can we do?

Here’s the answer: zero.

That’s right: If we’re serious about preventing catastrophic warming, the new study shows, we can’t dig any new coal mines, drill any new fields, build any more pipelines. Not a single one. We’re done expanding the fossil fuel frontier. Our only hope is a swift, managed decline in the production of all carbon-based energy from the fields we’ve already put in production.

A Trump campaign chair in Ohio says there was 'no racism' before Obama

Donald Trump’s campaign chair in a prominent Ohio county has claimed there was “no racism” during the 1960s and said black people who have not succeeded over the past half-century only have themselves to blame.

Kathy Miller, chair of the Republican nominee’s campaign in Mahoning County, who is white, made the remarks during a taped interview with the Guardian’s Anywhere but Washington series of election videos.


“If you’re black and you haven’t been successful in the last 50 years, it’s your own fault. You’ve had every opportunity, it was given to you,” she said.

“You’ve had the same schools everybody else went to. You had benefits to go to college that white kids didn’t have. You had all the advantages and didn’t take advantage of it. It’s not our fault, certainly.”

Pastor who made homophobic comments about the Orlando shooting just got deported from Botswana

Botswana has decided to deport the American pastor who became notorious over his homophobic comments after the Orlando nightclub shooting. Pastor Steven Anderson was spouting his anti-gay message on a Botswana radio station when immigration officers entered the studios and escorted him out on Sept. 20, according to the radio station’s news report. The Botswana government announced via Twitter that Anderson was now considered a “prohibited immigrant.”

Anderson was banned from entering South Africa last week after the country’s government decided that his sermons amounted to hate speech. South Africa’s LGBTQI community began lobbying the government soon after Anderson’s comments over the Orlando nightclub shooting made headlines. Botswana’s LGBTQI community also lobbied their government, but failed to stop Anderson from entering the country last week.

“I feel sorry for people who live in South Africa, but thank God we still have a wide open door in Botswana,” Anderson said after hearing about his ban from South Africa.

Anderson was allowed to preach in Botswana and open a local branch of his church, even after a scuffle with protestors, the preacher said in a YouTube post. But his comments on Botswana’s radio station GabzFM proved too much. Anderson said that Botswana’s citizens clearly struggled with alcoholism and “drunkenness,” and that religious leaders were “toothless” who allowed women to preach and relied on translated Bibles that were “corrupted pieces of junk” when compared to the King James version. He again repeated his views that gay people should be killed. As the breakfast show wrapped, agents were waiting for Anderson to escort him away.
