Terse but packing a killer punch, per usual from Harper’s Weekly Review:
A study revealed that, in the 1970s, Exxon made “breathtakingly” accurate predictions of how much fossil fuel emissions would heat the planet, while casting doubt on global warming in public. The year 2022 was named the fifth-hottest on record, and U.S. emissions were reported to have increased. The United Arab Emirates chose an oil executive to lead the world’s largest climate summit, and the German village of Lützerath, which had been occupied by environmental activists for two and a half years, was cleared to make way for a coal mine.
I’m categorizing this as The Koch Bros Final Solution to Democracy.
