Today’s news:

“Breitbart under Bannon, 62, has castigated Islam as a “sinister” religion, warned that “hordes of homophobic Muslims” are coming to the West to attack gay nightclubs, and dismissed Black Lives Matter as dedicated to creating a “socialist/anarchist America.” Two weeks after the murder of nine black worshipers at a Charleston, S.C., church by a self-described white supremacist, the site ran a piece celebrating the Confederate flag and the “glorious” heritage it represented.”
“When founder Andrew Breitbart died suddenly in 2012, Bannon took over, and began moving it further to the right, recognizing that stories with more extreme click-bait headlines generated the most traffic … It recorded 240 million page views last month, 20 times the number when Bannon took over.”
“For years, Beijing fought attempts by foreign governments to limit carbon emissions, claiming it should be allowed the same space to develop and pollute that industrialized nations had.
But with its capital often choked by smog and its people angry about the environmental devastation that rapid development has wrought across the country, Beijing has become a proponent of efforts to halt global warming rather than a hindrance.
China sees a perceived role as global climate leader as way to bolster its aspiration to become a “clean energy superpower” by leading in renewable energy technology such as wind and solar power and asserting itself as a key geopolitical power.”
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
