For the 99% of earthlings who don't know, a wobbegong is a smallish and generally unaggressive shark.

translation: I have to protect myself against the stench of this society where the poor want too much help from the government, which means from me, the businessman taxpayer

Some guy with this as the main picture on his blog, basically extreme libertarian propaganda against almost all forms of taxes, against "free stuff" and critical of social safety nets as too expensive for taxpayers (understand: the rich), tries to posture as a voice of reason (which is the joke here).

Yet social issues are just as important as environmental ones. If we try solving the latter without giving enough importance to the former, we will end up in a world similar to that described in The Expanse

I think we won't actually be able to solve the environmental problems without at least starting serious work on the social problems (e.g. collapsing the global Ponzi scheme https://thinkprogress.org/is-the-global ... 06fbd46c3/ ) but that's getting too serious to discuss here.

Blind amphibian that buries its head in the sand named after US President Donald Trump

A newly discovered amphibian that is blind and buries its head in the sand has been officially named after Donald Trump in recognition of the US President's stance on climate change.

Dermophis donaldtrumpi, 10 centimetres in length and belonging to group of snakelike animals called caecilians, was recently found in Panama by a group of scientists.

Its naming rights were auctioned off in a fundraiser for Rainforest Trust, a non-profit rainforest conservation organisation.

The winning bid of $34,478 was made by Aidan Bell, the head of a UK-based sustainable building materials company called EnviroBuild.

"It is the perfect name," Mr Bell told The Guardian.

In a press release authored by Mr Bell, EnviroBuild expanded on the choice, and did not hold back.

"Caecilian is taken from the Latin caecus, meaning 'blind', perfectly mirroring the strategic vision President Trump has consistently shown towards climate change," he said.
Mr Bell said Mr Trump's worldview resembled a caecilian's, whose eyes can only detect light and dark.

"Capable of seeing the world only in black and white. Donald Trump has claimed that climate change is a hoax by the Chinese," he added.
