What A Day - September 15, 2020 - 17:48

Extreme weather continues in the US, with over 4.5 million acres burned across the West Coast and a Category 2 hurricane bearing down on the Gulf Coast. Scientists say two Antarctic glaciers are breaking off and could contribute to large-scale sea level rise, underscoring the need for aggressive environmental policy in the US and abroad. Oracle is close to taking over TikTok’s US operations following scuttled negotiations between Microsoft and ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns TikTok. Oracle would be a “trusted tech partner,” meaning the deal isn’t a full-on sale—instead, Oracle would manage TikTok’s US data. And in headlines: a whistleblower at a privately-run ICE detention camp in Georgia, comparing the pandemic’s economic consequences to the ’09 financial crisis, and scientists discover a perfectly-preserved cave bear in Serbia.Show Links..."The Trump Administration Is Reversing 100 Environmental Rules.
