Fossil fuel lobbyists grossly outspend “Big Green”

One of the stranger conspiracy theories against climate science is that corporate interests are pulling all the strings so that “Big Green” can get rich from action against climate change. Of course, it’s no secret that industries related to fossil fuels have lobbied for the exact opposite, pushing to avoid any significant climate policy.

So what do American industries spend to lobby Congress on this issue?

Drexel University’s Robert Brulle used lobbying reporting laws to find out. Not every penny spent on persuading congresspeople has to be reported—and a lot of political activities, like think tank funding, don’t count as lobbying. But spending on lobbying itself has been tracked in the US since a 1995 law mandated it. Brulle was able to sift through climate-related expenditures between 2000 and 2016, sorting the entities into groups.

This full video shows just how bonkers the VW Pikes Peak record was

Ars Technica - July 20, 2018 - 4:35pm

At the end of June, Volkswagen and French racing driver Romain Dumas did something many of us thought impossible. Using a highly specialized electric vehicle called the "I.D. R Pikes Peak," Dumas raced to the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado in under eight minutes, shattering the existing records for EVs by a full minute and the overall record (set by Peugeot and Sebastian Loeb in 2013) by a hefty 16 seconds.

Ars was there to see it happen, but truth be told you don't actually see that much of anyone's run at Pikes Peak if you're there in person. The course is 12.4 miles (19.99km) long, so even if you have a media vest and are free to roam outside the official spectating zones, you still really have to pick a corner and then be content with watching a small slice of each attempt from there.

But one of the marvels of living in the early 21st century is our access to small and rugged digital cameras. In fact, the organizers of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb are pretty good about putting a GoPro on every car and bike that runs up the mountain in anger, and within a week almost all of these were posted to YouTube. But not Dumas' run, no matter how often I begged on Twitter.

A new run of The Clone Wars is coming to Disney’s streaming service

Ars Technica - July 20, 2018 - 4:00pm


As someone born in the mid-1970s, it's sometimes hard to wrap my mind around Disney's stewardship of the Star Wars universe. Being born into the world a few months before what we now know as A New Hope meant waiting a long time between new chapters of this amazing story set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Beyond the original trilogy, that Christmas special, and two Ewok movies (that I am sure got cinematic releases in the UK but which were also TV specials here in the US), filling in the back stories of the Empire and the Rebellion was something kids did for themselves with the wide array of toys so many of us spent so much time playing with.

These days it's hard to swing a womp rat without hitting some new Star Wars property or other. Such has been the cadence of new theatrical releases that, in the wake of a box office performance by Solo that was merely "fine" rather than "exceptional," people were even talking about the idea of Star Wars fatigue! Well, add one more new thing to the list. At this year's Comic-Con, a panel on the ten-year anniversary of The Clone Wars animated series ended with a surprise: a new season of 12 episodes has been commissioned to run on Disney's streaming service (which launches next year).
