'Pharma Bro' Martin Shkreli's interview goes horribly wrong (for him)

Just why, exactly, "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli agreed to be interviewed for a satirical news site is a mystery.

But let's not focus on the "why" of how this interview came to be. Instead, consider this an enjoyable treat for anyone who is a fan of schadenfreude.

Shkreli, as most people know him, is the pharmaceutical company CEO who famously upped the price of the HIV treatment drug Daraprim by 5,000 percent, raising it from $13.50 a pill to $750 in 2015.

In other words, he's not liked by many.

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.”
