Republican President and climate change denier Donald Trump has reached across the partisan divide to appoint Democratic eco-activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. chair of a commission to investigate vaccine safety and scientific integrity. These strange bedfellows are united by their shared concerns about the alleged link between vaccines and serious illnesses like autism. As Celeste McGovern reports, it’s a big win for anti-vaxxers, and a big headache for Big Pharma.

Celeste McGovern has covered foreign aid and development issues as a journalist for over two decades. She was in Rio in 1997 when Canada’s Maurice Strong, “the man who invented climate change”, and a few like-minded global governance schemers introduced the “Earth Charter”, a sort of environmental 10 commandments for ending capitalism and saving the planet. The Paris Climate Summit was the biggest green gabfest yet, McGovern writes, but these things are like soap operas. Lots of drama and new episodes every few years, but not much really changes.
