For it would take Dickens in his prime to do full justice to President Trump’s state visit to Britain this week.

by Markos Kounalakisvia Miami Herald
Thursday, May 30, 2019
Continental elections last weekend gave anti-nuclear Green Parties a huge boost, installing the Greens into a European Parliament kingmaker role. As a result, the rest of Europe is likely to follow the lead of Germany’s environmental party and movement, turning further against civilian nuclear energy and, especially, against coal-fired plants.
