National Climate Assessment: How to deal with despair over climate change - Vox
The dominant narrative around climate change tells us that it’s our fault. We left the lights on too long, didn’t close the refrigerator door, and didn’t recycle our paper. I’m here to tell you that is bullshit. ... Don’t give in to that shame. It’s not yours. The oil and gas industry is gaslighting you.

That same IPCC report revealed that a mere 100 companies are responsible for 71 percent of global climate emissions. These people are locking you and everything you love into a tomb. You have every right to be pissed all the way off. And we have to make them hear about it.

An adorable 25-year-old red panda who works as an office associate, Aggretsuko is constantly taken advantage of and bothered by her boss and co-workers. So she deals with it by pounding beers and screaming death-metal karaoke.

The Airplane Seating Arrangement that Triggers 'Air Rage'
The presence of a first-class cabin, and having to walk through it to get to economy, is a triggering factor for "air rage" incidents:

As lead researcher Katherine DeCelles explained to Gizmodo, airplanes are like a miniature version of class-based society. “It’s a small world of the greater society that we live in, though one that’s greatly concentrated,” she said. Traveling by plane is stressful enough, but DeCelles believes that seating inequality on airplanes often serves as “the straw that breaks the camel’s back,” and that air rage can be partly explained and understood through the lens of social inequality.
