A Matter of Degrees I have been most interested in The Nation’s coverage of the climate crisis, particularly Daniel Judt’s “Climate Injustice Hits Home” [October 7]. However, in many publications, including The Nation, the projected temperature increase is expressed in Celsius instead of Fahrenheit. I find that misleading to US readers, who may not be accustomed to the metric system and may find it harder to take climate change seriously when expressed in Celsius—“What’s a few degrees? Nothing serious.” But if The Nation and other publications would express temperature projections in Fahrenheit, that might help highlight the crisis. MARYANNE BUCHANANAKRON, OHIO Devil in the Dixie I want to thank Patricia J. Williams for unpacking the disturbing and painful prettification of Confederate slavery [“Plantation Blues,” October 14]. A few years ago, my family visited the…

giving peace a bad name

Donald Trump’s abrupt order to withdraw US troops from the edges of Syria has unleashed horrors there—and a political firestorm here. By justifying the slapdash retreat of US forces under the banner of “ending endless wars,” Trump could well wind up giving peace a bad name. Trump’s fiasco surely deserves the stinging rebuke he has received from both parties in the House of Representatives. The president’s casual green light to the Turkish invasion of northern Syria, though put on hold by a cease-fire after Vice President Mike Pence’s meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has resulted in hundreds of casualties and thousands of refugees, betrayed our Kurdish allies, expanded Russian and Iranian influence, and left American troops both ashamed and at risk. But amid the ruins, it is worth remembering…

rest in power

There are progressive members of Congress who cast good votes in favor of economic, social, and racial justice, peace, and the planet and who understand this to be the purpose of their service. Then there are the rarer members like Representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, who have always recognized casting good votes as the starting point for a service that embraces movements far from Capitol Hill. Cummings, who died October 17 at the age of 68, is being honored for his able work on the congressional committee charged with holding the powerful to account. But it should be remembered as well that he spent an extraordinary amount of time picketing and rallying and marching with working-class people who have had…

boycott or benefit?

Dear Liza, Our unincorporated community in Northern California has been economically depressed (though culturally rich) for decades. We have struggled just to get sidewalks and streetlights on our main street. Within the last year, two wealthy individuals have bought up a lot of real estate on the commercial strip. They’re planning new development, in the process helping to address our affordable housing crisis. They also respect the history of our area. I’m an artist and historian, and they’ve asked me to be involved in bringing art and history into the proposed project. Then someone learned that one of these rich folks made homophobic, anti-marriage-equality Facebook posts and that their business partner was backing a Tea Party group. Outrage blossomed on social media, with many vowing to boycott their businesses. I worry that a boycott…
