Columbus Day is dead in New Mexico, but lives on in Montana and other states

TwitterFacebook

If you’ve picked up a book, then you know Christopher Columbus didn’t discover the America. Not to mention that he represents some morally dubious issues like colonialism and exploitation. So why do lawmakers insist on dedicating a day to him?

In an important step forward, New Mexico ditched the holiday, joining other cities and states including Alaska, Vermont, and Oregon. On Tuesday, GovMichelle Lujan Grisham signed a bill to call Columbus Day Indigenous People’s Day instead — a step…

TwitterFacebook

For online car buyers, there’s another option to get your car.

Here’s a running list of all the ways climate change has altered Earth in 2019

TwitterFacebook

Earth is now the warmest it’s been in some 120,000 years. Eighteen of the last 19 years have been the warmest on record. And concentrations of carbon dioxide — a potent greenhouse gas — are likely the highest they’ve been in 15 million years

The consequences of such a globally-disrupted climate are many, and it’s understandably difficult to keep track. To help, here’s a list of climate-relevant news that has transpired in 2019, from historically unprecedented disappearances of ice, to…
