Simon Hix on the election of Jeremy Corbyn as the new leader of the Labour Party - YouTube
Movement (Bobble Head of our time that captured imagination of disenfranchised part of society which became disengaged with Politics because they had no voice and no impact and no shared views) - vs - [Labour] Party (something babyboomers and pensioners could voted for (if) it is properly framed, spun, communicated over and over again that they've sold out their kids and grand children for their own gain and capture of wealth and have to change course. because their kids and grand children are on a backfoot very much, already. and can not take guaranteed the opportunities and social and capital luxuries babyboomers, post-war gen (pensioners) have enjoyed and continue to enjoy. that they have to give up some of their pie).

Deregulators & the people behind intellectual cleansing (ie Larry Summers vs Elizabeth Warren back in deregulation time of Clinton&Bush No. 2), have to be held responsible; economic thought; model, thinking, trickle-down, globalisation, no oversight & consumer protection // capitalism & globalisation are not self limiting // GFC is a symptom, Oil crisis in 70/80s, dot.com, world com, enron // globalisation (trade) doesnt solve growth problem // London banking is soufflé with no hard items (no real wealth creation within economy (income growth)) // shift money to who will spend it (re:bailout) // banks & rootless tax evaders global corps have no shared economic interest // "the globalist model" will work everywhere else, according to the IMF/World Bank, democracy will work in the Middle East. said the same people from the same school of thought // globalisation created oligopolies, not more competition! // climate change=investment w ROI // AfD=symptom // added value, no comp on price

Jürgen Trittin: Plädoyer für linke Reformen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Heute ist es für viele Menschen, gerade wirtschaftlich Schwächere, schwer geworden, dem Begriff "Reform" etwas Gutes abzugewinnen. Viel zu oft war Reform ein Synonym für sozialen Rückschritt & Ausschluss aus der Gesellschaft. Reform heute ist neoliberal aufgeladen, es steht für Deregulierung, für weniger Sicherheit, mehr Armutsrisiko & weniger Demokratie. Diese reale Erfahrung hat die Angst vor Veränderung erhöht. So haben Konservative leichtes Spiel. Das Bittere ist: Für diese Diskreditierung von Veränderung, für die Umdeutung von Reform sind auch Regierungen der linken Mitte mitverantwortlich. Links reden, rechts wählen - das ist keine deutsche Marotte. Als Folge der Finanzkrise wurden in Europa erst einmal reihenweise konservative & wirtschaftsliberale Regierungen gewählt. Gerade dort, wo die Krise wirklich zugeschlagen hat, zeigte sich wieder einmal: Krisen sind keine guten Zeiten für eine Politik der linken Mitte.

Dürre im Westen der USA: Stausee Lake Powell trocknet aus - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die aktuelle Dürre sei "beispiellos seit dem Beginn der verlässlichen Aufzeichnungen im Jahr 1895", heißt es im National Climate Assessment, dem offiziellen Klimabericht der US-Regierung, den Präsident Barack Obama Anfang Mai vorstellte. Er verheißt dem Südwesten Ungemach: Das Wasser schwinde weiter, es fehle in Städten, Agrarlandschaften, Ökosystemen, Waldbrände häuften sich. Und das könnte erst der Anfang sein: Wissenschaftler befürchten, dass die Region in frühere Zeiten zurückfallen könnte. Baumring-Analysen haben ergeben, dass das 20. Jahrhundert die niederschlagreichste Periode der vergangenen 1200 Jahre war. Zuvor war es im Westen der USA deutlich trockener als heute. Eine Studie etwa hat gezeigt, dass zwischen den Jahren 850 und 1300 gleich zwei Megadürren herrschten - jede für sich fast 200 Jahre lang. Die größte Befürchtung der Experten ist, das Klima könne nun wieder zu derartigen Verhältnissen zurückkehren.

'This is extreme': Wildfires strike early, hard in Southern California - CNN.com
Spate of fires causes concerns around region Wildfires aren't typically a problem in California until the summer, when things get even hotter and dryer. But San Diego County got an unwanted early start Tuesday, when the Bernardo Fire broke out. At one point, that blaze prompted some 5,000 evacuation notices to be issued, though people were allowed back not long thereafter. Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in the county late Wednesday. As Carlsbad police Capt. Paul Mendes said, "This is May. This is unbelievable." Throughout the region, though, the situation only deteriorated. Steady winds and high temperatures -- including daily record highs between 93 in San Diego and 99 in El Cajon, according to the National Weather Service -- certainly didn't help. "This is extreme. This has gone from dry conditions to volatile conditions," said one firefighter in Carlsbad, after using a torch to ignite backfire. "This isn't something we don't normally see until November or September.
