The Spark

“The emancipation of the working class will only be achieved by the working class itself.” — Karl Marx

Are There Any Connections?

Aug 6, 2018

Wild fires are raging out of control in California and have destroyed at least 10,000 homes. The out of control burning is at least partly due to prolonged record heat. San Diego hit 115 degrees, and a Los Angeles suburb broke 118. In July, Death Valley recorded the hottest month anywhere, ever, with the average temperature, day and night, above 108.

So what idiot would propose to make the world even hotter by encouraging auto companies to sell cars that burn more fuel and emit more greenhouse gases?

You got it! The U.S. president!
