News Roundup: Mo Brooks hedges; Facebook employees fed up; Manchin against the planet

In the news today: Rep. Mo Brooks was a speaker at the Jan. 6 rally in which Donald Trump implored his crowd to “march” on the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to halt recognition of Trump’s November election loss, leading to violence and deaths. Brooks now continues to be extremely squirrelly about just how involved he and his staff were in those events. Another booster of insurrection lies, Facebook, has fared no better in trying to convince its own employees that it is not culpable for the results than it has the general public. Manchin now knows what he stands for, and coincidentally it’s opposing climate solutions that would make his “blind trust” involvement in the coal industry less profitable.

But that’s a pretty deplorable place to make a stand, as we’re learning that the planet may already have crossed a dangerous threshold that will make the next century of warming even more catastrophic than we feared. Here’s some of what you may have missed:
