West Virginians Still Not Drinking Their Water/Duke Energy's Crimes On Display

UPDATE: 4-1-14:FREEDOM INDUSTRIES HEADS TO COURT AMID QUESTIONS ON ‘INSIDER’ PAYMENTS

But it doesn't end there:

President Of Company That Tainted West Virginia’s Water Wants To Be Paid During Bankruptcy

Typical, out of touch arrogance. No caring about the water poisoned, the fact that people still aren't drinking it, the lost wages and business of those effected by it, the sick children, etc. He so needs to go to prison. At least there he can get bread and water- hopefully from the tap.

Typhoon Haiyan from space. NEW NORMAL? What is normal about this? About hundreds of millions of refugees with no homes, no food, no water, no way to grow food? What is normal about perpetual war? Do people really see how SERIOUS this all is?

Scientists Sound Alarm on Climate

By Justin Gillis

"Early in his career, a scientist named Mario J. Molina was pulled into seemingly obscure research about strange chemicals being spewed into the atmosphere. Within a year, he had helped discover a global environmental emergency, work that would ultimately win a Nobel Prize.

Now, at 70, Dr. Molina is trying to awaken the public to an even bigger risk. He spearheaded a committee of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest general scient…
