Government Science Advocates Muzzled by President Trump Troll Him On Climate Change From ‘Alt’ Twitter Accounts

27 January 2017 1:43 PM, PST | | See recent news »

In the last few days more than 50 Twitter accounts—some claiming to be from employees at U.S. government agencies—have been set up to protest the actions by President Trump’s new administration effectively muzzling federal climate-change research and other science.

One of the first rogue accounts to emerge was the unofficial National Park Service’s @AltNatParkSer account Tuesday, which now has 1.25 million followers. That was quickly followed by unofficial, unverified accounts for Nasa — @RogueNASA — and the Environmental Protection Agency, @AltUSEPA.

How sad is it that government employees have to create rogue Twitter accounts just to communicate Facts to the American public? »

Sudden Impact: How Sundance Documentaries Have Gained (or Lost) Relevance in the Trump Age

26 January 2017 11:08 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Conceived and created before the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, Sundance’s documentaries straddle one of the most profound cultural and political shifts in the United States’ recent history.

As the country is forced to grapple with a new range of issues in the post-Obama age, documentarians are also now straining to catch up. You could see it on the screen at Sundance, where last-act codas and recent news snippets suggested how the triumph of Trump had impacted, and in some cases, undermined the stories being told. The story of the election is explicitly told in “Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time,” but even when Trump wasn’t presented, the country’s conservative turn—and the pain and fractures it has caused among many of its citizens—may influence the way these films are received and understood.

Former Vice President Al Gore said he’ll continue to talk in good faith with President Donald Trump about climate change — no matter how his administration feels about the concept of global warming. “It’s always better to have a line of communication,” Gore said Saturday at TheWrap’s Sundance interview studio at Park City’s Old Town Cellars, where he represented his film “An Inconvenient Sequel” along with directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk and Participant Media chief Jeff Skoll. “In the decade I’ve been involved in this, I have encountered a lot of really difficult obstacles — and this is another difficult. »

'Inconvenient Truth' Sequel Opens Sundance 2017: 'Damage Has Been Done'

20 January 2017 9:02 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"We stay away from politics."

You wouldn't want to say that Robert Redford – screen legend, long-time environmentalist and activist, independent-film patron saint, possible contender for handsomest octogenarian alive – was being disingenuous, exactly. But when the founder of the Sundance Film Festival uttered that phrase at this year's opening press conference, some 24 hours before a ... let's call him a "divisive figure" was to be sworn in as president, it felt a little off-brand. He clarified the statement by saying his main concern was staying "focused on the stories being told by »
