I was going to post this on the "good music thread" - but someone might object.

You can´t really object to another persons idea of good music although you can have a different taste. Your taste was poor but at least you were honest and all that.  ;)

The proposal of the Dolt in Office to buy Greenland might fit here. The price of the piece of real estate should be estimated though.
The 2,850,000 cubic kilometers of frozen mineral water translates to about 3,8*10^15€, not counting the expense invested in freezing the stuff. This may be estimated by the energy requirement to freeze 20 degree regular water. Then there are the fishes the value of which could be estimated by multiplying a normal 3* restaurant meal by 8, as one fish is split to so many pieces. I don't know what a valid price for a live polar bear is, but this is a minor expense compared to fish. Then there are the few rivers that can be harnessed for energy, so their lifetimes entire potential energy should also be compensated.

Well you get the idea.

Instead of buying Greenland, the USA should sell its president. Most likely only negative bids though.

Well if we lose 'civil' from civilisation we are left with ilisation, add just an 'l' and were in ill-isation. Sorry not my native language so wordplays are on this level quite often.

Indeed, Denmark's price for the sale of Greenland should include such uses of the inhabitants.  Trump would surely like to harvest all these bodies for maximum sale value.  One reference is relevant here:
This Is How Much Your Body Is Worth
https://www.sciencealert.com/this-is-how-much-your-body-is-worth

So $650,000 per harvested body times 55k inhabitants means that the human purchase component of a sale of Greenland would be roughly $36 billion.

This seems a "Modest Proposal" indeed.

Watch Colbert Use Hot Wheels To Destroy Trump’s Pollution Myths
https://www.fatherly.com/news/colbert-hot-wheels-trump-administration/
Quote
On Stephen Colbert’s Wednesday night show, the comedian and late night host proved once again that skewering Trump is as easy as using his own policies against him. In a hilarious, 1-minute parody ad for Hot Wheels: Trump edition, Colbert skewered the Trump administration’s move to disallow states like California to set their own stringent vehicle emissions standards by showing off Hot Wheels that emit tons of gas called the “Plymouth Wheeze,” the “Oldsmobile Smog,” and more.

In Australian there has been a debate about linking climate change with bushfire where the denialist conservative government (beholden to big carbon interests) has claimed that "now is not the time to talk about it". The linked video is from the same guy who did the Greta Thunberg helpline vid.

When do we talk about it? Not today.

Brazil's president accuses actor DiCaprio of financing Amazon fires, offers no evidence

SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro claimed on Friday that Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio financed fires being set in the Amazon rainforest, without presenting any evidence, the right-wing leader’s latest broadside in casting blame over forest fires that have generated international concern.

Bolsonaro appeared to be commenting on social media postings claiming that the environmental organization the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) had paid for images taken by volunteer firefighters that it then supposedly used to solicit donations, including a $500,000 contribution from DiCaprio.

The WWF has denied receiving a donation from DiCaprio or obtaining photos from the firefighters.

“This Leonardo DiCaprio is a cool guy, right? Giving money to torch the Amazon,” Bolsonaro said on Friday during brief remarks in front of the presidential residence.

DiCaprio denied having donated to the WWF. In a statement, the actor lauded “the people of Brazil working to save their natural and cultural heritage.” But, he said, “While worthy of support, we did not fund the organizations targeted.”

DiCaprio has been an outspoken advocate on behalf of combating climate change, speaking frequently about environmental issues including the Amazon forest fires. His Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which is focused on projects that “protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction,” is part of the Earth Alliance.

Four members of the nongovernmental organization Alter do Chão Fire Brigade were arrested on Tuesday with police accusing them of purposefully setting fires in order to document them and drum up more donations. They were released on Thursday on a judge’s order.

Politicians and other NGOs fiercely criticized the arrest, saying it was part of a concerted attempt by Bolsonaro’s government to harass environmental groups.

Scientists and activists blame land speculators, farmers and ranchers for setting the fires to clear land for agricultural use, saying that deforesters are being emboldened by Bolsonaro’s rhetoric of promoting development and farming over preservation.

The Amazon rainforest is considered a bulwark against global climate change.

Bolsonaro has repeatedly lashed out at various factions in casting blame for the forest fires.

In a Facebook live post on Aug. 21, he said, “Everything indicates” that NGOs were going to the Amazon to “set fire” to the forest. When asked then if he had evidence to back up his claims, Bolsonaro said he had “no written plan,” adding, “that’s not how it’s done.”

One day later he admitted that farmers could be illegally setting the rainforest ablaze, but roughly a month later he attacked the “lying media” for saying that the rainforest was being devastated by the fires.

Bolsonaro talked about DiCaprio on Thursday during a live webcast. The president said the WWF paid the firefighting NGO to take pictures of forest fires in the Amazon.

“So what did the NGO do? What is the easiest thing? Set fire to the forest. Take pictures, make a video,” the president said. “(WWF) makes a campaign against Brazil, it contacts Leonardo DiCaprio, he donates $500,000.”

“A part of that went to the people that were setting fires. Leonardo DiCaprio, you are contributing to the fire in the Amazon, that won’t do,” Bolsonaro said.

Pretty cool that The Onion can now post on Reuters website.  :)

This was to be expected since comedians already do a better job on reporting the news then the TV journals and background shows.
I mean shows like The Weekly Show or whatever the original of Zondag with Lubach is called.

And Steven thanks for that dino cartoon. It is wonderfully efficient.
