Decarbonizing US Energy System Would Save 50,000 Lives and $600 Billion a Year: Study - https://www.commondreams.org/news/2022/05/17/decarbonizing-us-energy-system-would-save-50000-lives-and-600-billion-year-study
"A new study adds to the case for urgent decarbonization of the U.S. energy system, finding that slashing air pollution emissions from energy-related sources would bring near-term public health gains including preventing over 50,000 premature deaths and save $608 billion in associated benefits annually.
"Our work provides a sense of the scale of the air quality health benefits that could accompany deep decarbonization of the U.S. energy system," said Nick Mailloux, lead author of the study and a graduate student at the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment in University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies.
"Shifting to clean energy sources," Mailloux said, "can provide enormous benefit for public health in the near term while mitigating climate change in the longer term.""

The Damage Report: May 18, 2022

Rep. Madison Cawthorn loses his re-election bid for Congress in North Carolina to Sen. Chuck Edwards after months of public scandals. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: 'Complete and utter idiot': GOP strategist explains Madison Cawthorn's loss - https://www.rawstory.com/madison-cawthorn-loses-reelection/ "Rep. Madison Cawthorn suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of North Carolina voters on Tuesday. "In 2020, Madison Cawthorn became the youngest Republican elected to Congress in American history. In 2022, he became the youngest Republican to lose re-election to Congress in American history," Ben Collins wrote for New York magazine. "The 26-year-old Cawthorn lost after a series of self-imposed scandals, controversies, and gaffes. He was repeatedly pulled over speeding while driving without a license, twice took a firearm through airport security, faced allegations of sexual misconduct and insider trading, baselessly accused colleagues of participating in cocaine-fueled orgies, and then there was the weird video of him humping another man." Earlier Tuesday, Cawthorn called state Sen. Chuck Edwards to concede." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Progressive Democrat candidate, Summer Lee, wins in the Pennsylvania Congressional primary election against her competitor, Steve Irwin, who poured millions into his race. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: Summer Lee narrowly leads Steve Irwin but still too close to call Pa.'s 12th Congressional District race - https://www.post-gazette.com/news/politics-state/2022/05/17/pennsylvania-12th-congressional-district-steve-irwin-summer-lee-democrat-race-who-won/stories/202205170096 "The Democratic primary between state Rep. Summer Lee and Squirrel Hill attorney Steve Irwin to fill Pennsylvania’s redrawn 12th Congressional District was too close to call early Wednesday in a race that highlighted growing fracture between the county’s party establishment and growing progressive wing. Ms. Lee, a 34-year-old Mon Valley native and onetime labor organizer, and Steve Irwin, a 62-year-old business and labor law lawyer from Squirrel Hill, ended the night neck and neck, while University of Pittsburgh professor Jerry Dickinson, 35, trailed a distant third in the three-way race to represent the city of Pittsburgh and surrounding areas on the Democratic ticket. As of Wednesday morning, Ms. Lee had 46,589 (41.51% of the total) votes to Mr. Irwin’s 46,143 (41.11%), according to Allegheny and Westmoreland County’s elections divisions." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
Rep. Lauren Boebert is getting hit with an old video of hers slamming maternity and paternity leave, which completely contradicts her newest stance on paid maternity leave. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: An Old Lauren Boebert Interview About Maternity Leave Is Coming Back To Bite Her Rootin’ Tootin’ Butt - https://uproxx.com/viral/lauren-boebert-maternity-leave-abortion-tweet/ "Lauren Boebert’s quickly becoming an expert in telling people what to do and doing something completely different on her own. Not only has she judged people who are juggling student loans with rent and everything else, but she’s also used her own campaign funds to pay personal expenses like rent. She’s also been accused (by former employees) of missing their paychecks while she allegedly splurged on luxury items (including breast implants). So, it’s not much of a surprise that she’ acting hypocritical when it comes to women’s health, including abortion and maternity leave. This week, Boebert (who’s been thrilled about the impending overturning of Roe v. Wade) is on a tear about those companies who have committed to helping cover costs for employees who choose to terminate pregnancies but will have to travel out-of-state to do so. Boebert believes that they’re “doing so just to avoid paying for maternity leave.” She added, “Cheaper to kill the baby… true evil personified.”" ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
Progressive leaning Democrat candidate, John Fetterman, wins the Pennsylvania primary election against Rep. Conor Lamb for the Senate run. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: Fetterman wins Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary, GOP race is too close to call - https://www.npr.org/2022/05/17/1099190209/pennsylvania-senate-results-fetterman-lamb-oz-barnette-mccormick?utm_campaign=politics&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&utm_term=nprnews "John Fetterman, Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor, easily won the state's Democratic primary for U.S. Senate on Tuesday, according to a race call by The Associated Press, but the Republican race appeared headed for a recount. The 6-foot-9 Fetterman, who often wears shorts to campaign events and has the persona of an authentic anti-politician, topped Rep. Conor Lamb in the primary. Fetterman's win was expected despite the fact that he suffered a stroke last weekend and was not able to attend the last swing of campaign events. On Tuesday his campaign announced he was about to undergo a procedure to implant a pacemaker. Fetterman has said he'll be fine. Lamb, a more moderate candidate, failed to make any significant traction against Fetterman, a former small-town mayor who backed Bernie Sanders' 2020 presidential run, even though Lamb was seen as a rising Democratic star in the Trump era." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Mastriano led the nine-person field with just over 40% of the vote on Tuesday when NBC News and The Associated Press called the race.

Public schools have taken a massive hit between new schooling practices, Covid-19 and political divisions, which means funding will nosedive in schools across the nation. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: With Plunging Enrollment, a ‘Seismic Hit’ to Public Schools - https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/17/us/public-schools-falling-enrollment.html "In New York City, the nation’s largest school district has lost some 50,000 students over the past two years. In Michigan, enrollment remains more than 50,000 below prepandemic levels from big cities to the rural Upper Peninsula. In the suburbs of Orange County, Calif., where families have moved for generations to be part of the public school system, enrollment slid for the second consecutive year; statewide, more than a quarter-million public school students have dropped from California’s rolls since 2019. And since school funding is tied to enrollment, cities that have lost many students — including Denver, Albuquerque and Oakland — are now considering combining classrooms, laying off teachers or shutting down entire schools." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

And like I say, I count every Big Mac. I’ve counted every Big Mac I’ve eaten my whole life,” Gorske said. Gorske eats two Big Macs a day. “All through life here, a lot of people said, ‘You’ll be dead before you reach 50 years of eating Big Macs.’ I guess I proved them wrong,” he said." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
