Ephemera LXXXVII: Violence! Drugs! Unnatural sex acts!

The Business Roundtable’s climate plan was killed by its arch-rival, the Business Roundtable

Cory Doctorow: The Business Roundtable, whose membership includes 200 CEOs and some of the biggest companies in the world, unveiled an ambitious climate plan three years ago—and then spent millions of dollars lobbying to kill it.

The Roundtable bills itself as “an association of CEOs of leading US companies working to promote a thriving economy & expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.” Its members include the CEOs of the country’s most politically connected corporations, including Apple, Pepsi, Walmart and Google – the most powerful people in the nation.

there is no course of action so radical that these corporations and CEOs won’t promise to take it – provided they never, ever have to lift a finger to follow through on that promise.

This could be me. I never heard of Rob Gronkowski before seeing this tweet, and will probably forget who he is in a few seconds.


Watch the short video. Reminds me of “Doc Hollywood.”
