George Monbiot: We Can't Be Silent on Climate Change or the Unsustainability of Capitalist System This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form. NERMEEN SHAIKH: While Houston continues to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, we look at the media silence on the human contribution to it. The silence has been even more resounding on climate-related disasters in areas of the world where populations are more vulnerable, most recently on the devastating floods across the globe, from Niger to South Asia. AMY GOODMAN: Over the past month, more than 1,200 people have died in flooding in Bangladesh, Nepal and India. We go now to Oxford in Britain to speak to George Monbiot. George Monbiot, welcome back to Democracy Now! GEORGE MONBIOT: Well, because to ask those questions is to challenge everything. NERMEEN SHAIKH: Well, quite apart from the fact, George, that the issue of climate change is not mentioned in the media, as you write in your article, you also think that the term "climate change" is misleading, and the term that should be used is "climate breakdown."

Football sex abuse claims: More former players speak out Four ex-footballers have appeared together in an emotional interview to tell of their torment after being abused as children by a coach. Andy Woodward, who was the first to go public last week, wept as Chris Unsworth and Jason Dunford spoke for the first time of being abused by ex-Crewe Alexandra coach Barry Bennell. Mr Unsworth said he "never told a soul" that he was raped up to 100 times. Barry Bennell, 62, has served three jail sentences for child sex offences. Bennell, who also worked as a youth football scout, was jailed in 1998 for nine years and also served a four-year sentence in the United States. In 2015, he was given a two-year term for sexually abusing a boy at a training camp in Macclesfield, but is now out of prison and living in Milton Keynes. Since Mr Woodward's story emerged, several ex-players have made allegations about being sexually abused by coaches as children. Abuse claims: Who has spoken out? Football abused 'could number hundreds' 'Tormented me' 'I always denied it'

Alison Teal's Powerful Message on Plastics | The Inertia Alison Teal, TV star and eco-adventurer filmmaker, recently traveled to Indonesia to work with the conservation group Orca365 and was stunned to see how the global plastic epidemic is impacting some of the world’s most naturally beautiful locales. “Growing up and working in places like Bali, the Maldives, Mexico, and Hawaii, I’ve watched plastic pollution plague these pristine places,” she told The Inertia. The short clip above is just a fraction of what Teal observed on her trip but it also proffers a few strategies that anyone and everyone can incorporate into their daily lives to wean off of single-use plastics.

Trump disavows 'alt-right' supporters Donald Trump has repudiated the fringe "alt-right" group that celebrated his election win with Nazi salutes. In a far-ranging interview with the New York Times, the US president-elect was quoted as saying: "I condemn them. I disavow, and I condemn." He said he did not want to "energise" the group, which includes neo-Nazis, white nationalists and anti-Semites. Alt-right supporters were filmed on Saturday in Washington DC cheering as a speaker shouted: "Hail Trump." In the video, Richard Spencer, a leader of the "alt-right" movement, told a conference of members that America belongs to white people, whom he described as "children of the sun". He denounced the movement's critics as "the most despicable creatures who ever walked the planet". "Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!" The latest news What did Trump's NYT interview tell us?

Wallace & Gromit's creators make new animation to try to save the seas By Layal Liverpool Turtle Journey tells the tragic story of a turtle family travelling home through an ocean under growing pressure from climate change, plastic pollution, oil drilling and overfishing. The short animation, which you can watch below, was produced by Aardman – the creators of Wallace & Gromit – and campaigners Greenpeace to highlight the plight of the world’s oceans. Climate change is already affecting the habitats of sea turtles. Changing ocean currents are damaging the coral reefs some turtles rely on to survive, while rising seas threaten to destroy their beach habitats. Plastic, which has been found in hundreds of marine species, poses another danger. Characters in the film are voiced by two Oscar-winning actors, Olivia Colman and Helen Mirren, alongside Bella Ramsey from Game of Thrones, David Harbour of Stranger Things, Downton Abbey’s Jim Carter and comedian Ahir Shah.

The video, which was first featured on CorkBeo, has gotten such a reaction since appearing online that it is now getting attention in America. NowThis, a huge news site in New York with 14 million Facebook likes and 2.5 million Twitter followers, featured the videos on their social media channels.
