DailyKos: "Surely, though, dear readers, you are all much too mature to flood Morano’s email with the most disgusting content the internet has to offer...But it just goes to show that there are much more entertaining ways to blow off steam than with threatening violence or sending intimidating messages, like sending Marc Morano graphic and disturbing content that will make it difficult and painful for him to sort through his email every day because he doesn’t know if he’s about to open an email with an offer for more dirty money, or with a dirty picture he’ll never be able to unsee.
Threatening email: "Marc Morano, you are a pathetic excuse for a human being. I HOPE YOU AND YOUR WHOLE FAMILY WILL DIE THE MOST PAINFUL DEATHS. I hope your genes die out. Climate change is man-made and it is so. Your BULLSHIT proves NOTHING.

UK Independent: "Your home, sometime in the next decade. You click the heating on and receive an app notification telling you how much of your carbon allowance you’ve used today. Outside in the drive, your car’s fuel is linked to the same account. In the fridge, the New Zealand lamb you’ve bought has cost not just pounds and pence but a chunk of this monthly emissions budget too. Welcome to the world of personal carbon allowances – a concept that is increasingly gaining traction among experts as a possible response to the climate crisis. Each month, it would see every person or household in the country given a limited emissions quota to spend on heating, energy, travel, food and possibly consumer goods.
