The murder of Atatiana Jefferson by the police officer will be forgotten soon by most. It’s a societal reflection that we will do well to fix else …

It is for many not to take the police officer murder of Atatiana Jefferson personally.
Many will accuse those who highlight her murder, the murder of Philando Castile, and many others by cops as some sort of an affront on the police. To be clear, I do not see it that way at all. I think the police are just a reflection of society with the authority to kill where society rarely holds them accountable depending on the victims of their violence.
Some will even bring up the canard of so many more people being killed by the criminal element. Unsaid is that the police are supposed to be the security that as a society we purchased like an insurance policy against that. When one cannot trust their insurance policy then what is left? Society at large is complicit.
We cannot control the hearts or impulses of people. Accountability, however, ensures that they think how much of their violence they are willing to exert given the consequences. So far they have little to worry about.

New Study Warns 5 Billion People Could Face Higher Risk of Climate-Related Coastal Storms, Water Pollution, and Crop Losses by 2050
“If we continue on this trajectory, ecosystems will be unable to provide natural insurance in the face of climate change-induced impacts on food, water, and infrastructure.”
By 2050, five billion people across the globe—disproportionately those in poorer communities—could face a higher risk of enduring coastal storms, water pollution, and crop losses linked to the human-caused climate crisis, warns a study published in the journal Science and reported on Thursday by The Scotsman.
“Our analyses suggest that the current environmental governance at local, regional, and international levels is failing to encourage the most vulnerable regions to invest in ecosystems,” said study co-author Unai Pascual, co-chair of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).
“If we continue on this trajectory,” Pascual added, “ecosystems will be unable to provide natural insurance in the face of climate change-induced impacts on food, water, and infrastructure.”
