I have literally had hundreds of people ask me how they can help fight Trump's Family Separation policy. This article by is by far the best answer I can find. Please RETWEET the hell out of it:

By "structured headline" Facebook means fact checks were more effective if they started with rating (False, Pants on Fire, etc) and had clear synopsis

Facebook found people didn't understand what fact checks were so made changes after doing some research. Structured headlines were key.

You're right that it's not that simple. Thanks for calling me on it.

"It's time to acknowledge facts, and to embrace a decisive change that would be economically and socially beneficial, as well as rather liberating for Conservatives in showing sensible new opinions are welcome."

So Trump wants you to think there is a major uprising here in Germany and that "Crime in Germany is way up." Greetings from Germany. For your information, he's a liar. And the crime rate was the LOWEST in 2017 in 30 YEARS. Down 10 percent from the year before!

1. A pointless personal story you don't need to read: I was walking the dog today & stopped by the library to get a drink of water. Immigrant groups often meet there. There were three little girls on the front patio, maybe 8-10ish years old. They got shy when I walked up.

It is depressing indeed. But I still remain optimistic. The trend to watch is the underlying price trend. As building solar/wind becomes cheaper than building coal, coal stops growing. As new solar/wind become cheaper than operating existing coal, coal shuts down.

Trump says pretrial detention is too harsh for Paul Manafort. Trump has thousands of children separated from their moms and dads, held in internment camps because he has ordered pretrial detention for every asylum-seeker who arrives at the border.

Stop pretending that banning the separation of children from parents is complex legislation. It’s ONE LINE, and it could pass “on suspension” in the House on Monday, and by Unanimous Consent in the Senate on Tuesday. Attaching it to a bigger immigration bill is killing it.

Note that that's wind share of all renewables. As a share of all electricity generation, I expect wind to keep growing. Agree with your second point. The overall renewables growth rate will come to more closely resemble the solar growth rate.

Well, right now, nuclear is certainly more expensive.

Yeah. It's fantastic. And the role of energy reform and introducing competitive bidding was also key.

We don't know. These bidders may have already imported panels they plan to use. But note that a 30% tariff on panels is really about a 10% increase in cost of whole solar projects.

Yes. Cheapest Mexican solar is right at 2 cents (+ renewable certificates). These Nevada tenders are the cheapest in the US.
