Coal Forever: An article says coal’s not on its way out, not here or in Asia.

The Truth is Out There: And yet politicians still deny global warming.

Drink Coke: Taste tests show it’s the label that counts, not what’s in it.

Cut ‘Til it Hurts: Social Security and Medicare cuts are coming, but how deep?

Smackdown: With a GOP House majority, climate regulation faces a hard fight.

Come Hard or Go Home: Climate scientists need to play hardball with politicians.

Bear With Us: American Family Association exec declares war on bears. Rar!

 

 

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
