Political Climate: Why climate scientists can’t ignore politics, even if they want to.

In the Black: Even after paying for the Gulf spill, BP still posted a profit.

Ivory Towers: An academic breaks rank, calling for more climate scientist accountability.

Bad to the Bone: US health care is expensive, but at least it works… right?

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
