We're in a long-term fight to keep coronavirus from being the biggest weapon in the war on workers

The United States economy is crashing in historic fashion and that’s not even necessarily the worst thing going on—but one of the long-term dangers of coronavirus is that its damage to the economy, and the attendant fear and desperation, will be used to weaken the position of workers still further. The fate of workers has to be a major part of the policy discussion, and a focus of organizing, or we are so, so screwed even when and if COVID-19 stops being such an immediate threat to our health and lives.

From Idaho to New Zealand, the coronavirus is all we're talking about: This week's Picks

Hello dearest ones! I hope you’re well. As COVID-19 finds its way to each corner of our nation and the world, there’s no denying that these are scary times.

Spotlight on green news & views: Dixie Chicks scorch gaslighters; deniers twist scientific views

This is the 637th edition of the Spotlight on Green News & Views (previously known as the Green Diary Rescue). Here is the March 21 edition. Inclusion of a story in the Spotlight does not necessarily indicate my agreement with or endorsement of it. OUTSTANDING GREEN STORIES ClimateDenierRoundup writes—To Appease Oil Industry, Trump To Sacrifice Hundreds of Lives, Thousands of Jobs and Billions of $: “Back on Valentine’s day, we pointed you to stories from The Atlantic and the New York Times detailing the ‘turducken of falsehoods’ required to justify the Trump administration’s proposal to roll back Obama-era standards for automotive fuel efficiency. All those errors, like reversing how supply and demand work, came after plenty of reporting showed that even with the faulty math,  the rule would cost American lives, jobs, and money, which is why only the oil industry pushed for it and was grateful to get it. The final rule materials say the change will result in Americans buying an additional 2 billion barrels of oil through 2029, adding around 900 million metric tons of greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere. And that’s just the start. InsideEPA dove into the finalized environmental impact statement for the ‘Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient (SAFE)’ rule, and found that it is neither safer, nor more affordable, and obviously, much less fuel-efficient than what it’s overturning.”

A Massive Faux Staircase Punctuates A Glass-Sided Home Before Flowing into an Outdoor Garden

The design team at Nendo knew they’d need a way to connect the three generations—and eight cats—living inside a newly constructed home in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo, so they created an enormous staircase. Spanning from the outdoor garden to the third floor, the steel-and-concrete structure isn’t designed for climbing between floors but does serve as a multi-level garden area and space for the cats to lounge. It also conceals bathrooms and the staircase residents actually will use, while the white-paneled walls hold additional storage. More
