US Politics: Fahrenheit Wisconsin- main battleground in America’s political war – The Economist

A state once known for stolid German virtues is now the main battleground in America’s political war

THE ECONOMIST

IT IS SOBERING TO ENTER A SCHOOL IN MIDDLE AMERICA AND FIND STUDENTS AND TEACHERS FRIGHTENED FOR THEIR LIVES. It was also understandable that those at Wauwatosa East high school should feel this way when Lexington accompanied the local state representative, Robyn Vining, there.

EIGHT HIGH SCHOOLS IN WISCONSIN HAD JUST EXPERIENCED A REAL OR SUSPECTED SHOOTER INCIDENT IN A THREE-DAY PERIOD. One in another school in Waukesha, a suburban area on the edge of Milwaukee, had led to its school cop shooting a pupil.

Several of the 25 students present said they avoided going to the bathroom in class time for fear of the school corridors. When asked who was scared to come to school, all raised their hands.

Business: Big Oil has a do-or-die decade ahead because of climate change – The Economist

Schumpeter …….The 2020s are poised to be to energy firms what the 2010s were to utilities—disruptive
The Economist – Business –Jan 18th 2020 edition

Many will scoff. Oil companies are, after all, widely regarded as the villains of the climate crisis. Repsol is a relatively puny producer; its vow may simply be a gambit to woo investors keen on “sustainability”. Yet it deserves a pat on the back. Without the oil industry’s balance-sheets and project-management skills, it is hard to imagine the world building anything like enough wind farms, solar parks and other forms of clean energy to stop catastrophic global warming.
