OUR TAKE: Joe Manchin & Ecocide

Damn Joe Manchin. We’re toast, burnt toast, as a nation and a species. Manchin is guilty of killing American democracy — a woefully inadequate social welfare Reconciliation bill guarantees Trump 2024,  ecocide — a token American response to the climate crisis guarantees the failure of the UN climate summit in Glasgow this November, which means that the carbon emissions responsible for global heating will not be abated but rather will cause such catastrophic disruptions to human life as to cause the collapse of civilization.
