Best Magazine Cover of the Year plus Best Tweet?

November 1st, 2012 · 2 Comments

Bloomberg Business
week’s cover provides some stark truth as New York remains battered by Sandy’s damage.

The editor’s tweet might just be one of the best tweets to date:

Josh Tyrangiel is, again, the magazine’s editor.

As for that stupid, evidently the Republican base believes that the best defense against catastrophic climate chaos is to chant, loudly, “USA, USA” as a way to drown out scientific knowledge.

From Think Progress:

Mitt Romney stood silently as an activist interrupted the GOP presidential candidate’s event in Virginia Beach, Virginia on Thursday afternoon, to ask why he’s been ignoring the connection between climate change and Hurricane Sandy. The former Massachusetts governor quietly smiled, while the man held up a sign that read “End Climate Silence,” and resumed his stump speech without ever addressing the issue:

MAN: Romney! What about climate? That’s what caused this monster storm! Climate change!

ROMNEY: [silent]

CROWD: BOO! USA! USA! USA!

Watch it:

    I read this article this morning. Superb.

    Although, amazingly, doesn’t even discuss sea level rise. And, there are other issues with the article …

    Maybe Sandy has finally breached the dam of silence and denial with regard to Climate Change. Let’s hope!
