Quickies: Climate change deniers’ coordinated attacks on Greta Thunberg

Why Jeffrey Epstein loved evo psych, and the dark realities of crystal mining

Attacks on Greta Thunberg come from a coordinated network of climate change deniers – “…a large subsection of the commentariat driving the abuse of Greta is part of an established network of radical free-marketeer lobby groups — a network that has firm ties to the fossil fuel industry and funders of climate science denial.”

Dark crystals: The reality behind a booming wellness craze – The people who mine them, in back-breaking unsafe working conditions, are paid pennies per pound for crystals that sell for hundreds of dollars.

Why Jeffrey Epstein loved evolutionary psychology – Short version: Trash attracts trash. “…the explanations for human behavior developed in these scientists’ work must have been appealing to a man of Epstein’s proclivities. For example, Steven Pinker has described men as likely biologically predisposed to aggression, violent competition over women, and even rape, while evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller wrote that sexual selection, male-male competition, and mate choice can explain why men have dominated the “political, economic, and cultural life in every known society.””
