Fueling Disinfo: “For at least a decade the fossil-fuel industry has tried to green its public image. The Texas proceedings show that its actions do not always reflect that image. In little-watched venues, the industry continues to downplay the crisis it has wrought, impeding efforts to provide clear science about that crisis to a young generation whose world will be defined by it.” Scientific American: Oil and gas representatives influence the standards for courses and textbooks, from kindergarten to 12th grade. (There’s a big risk in hoping corporations will come to our rescue.)

+ The Unilevers of Power: “The consumer giant vowed to ditch plastic sachets, single-use packaging that’s swamping poor countries with waste. Privately, it fought to keep using them.” Unilever’s Plastic Playbook. (See above parenthetical.)

+ Morning Meeting Demand?: CVS and Rite Aid are limiting purchases of ‘morning-after’ pills due to increased demand. And from the NYT: When Brazil Banned Abortion Pills, Women Turned to Drug Traffickers.

+ Lithium Icon: “Musk might make more headlines, but Zeng holds almost as much power. But Zeng is not Musk. He dodges the limelight and rarely gives interviews. Insiders point out that Zeng is operating in an environment where notoriety could hinder, not help, his business.” Wired: The Rise and Precarious Reign of China’s Battery King.

+ Justice Delayed: “A 101-year-old former Nazi concentration camp guard has been sentenced to five years in prison by a German court for aiding and abetting the murder of 3,518 people during the Holocaust.” (Some hands of justice move even more slowly than America’s handling of autogolpes.)
