Since this bastion of liberal thought called the New York Times did away with its environment desk and its climate coverage fell, we have to rely on the foreign press for news.

The pensions and nest eggs of billions of people around the world are being put at risk by global warming, says the UN’s climate chief.
Christiana Figueres [Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change] has called on investors to pull their money out of fossil fuel linked funds.
She said institutional investors would be in blatant breach of their fiduciary duty if they ignored the “clear scientific evidence”.
Ms Figueres said that they should put their money into green assets instead.
“Fiduciary responsibility” keep that term in mind as we wait for the fossil fuel divestment response of the URI Foundation. It’s the term used “to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”
