So this definitely isn't a cynical attempt to hijack breast cancer awareness month

Pornhub has a pink ribbon.

Visitors to porn hub Pornhub this month are greeted with a pink-ribboned logo, and this header:

Which, if clicked on, takes them to this page:

The text reads:

Help Pornhub support breast cancer research simply by watching videos!

Hey, we all love boobs! So this October, Pornhub will donate 1 cent for every 30 videos viewed from our big-tit and small-tit categories. The more videos viewed, the bigger our donation will be to a breast cancer research charity.

How can you help?

Much has been written about the "pink-washing" industry - companies putting a pink ribbon on products which donate fractions of cents to breast cancer research, and then claiming the ethical kudos - and equally, many have complained about the focus on breasts, rather than the women behind them. A good place to start would be Xeni Jardin's twitter feed, or s.e. smith's piece at this ain't livin. But if this example doesn't sum all those problems up in a nutshell, I don't know what does.

No.

The section on climate change has already disappeared from the White House website

As soon as Trump was president, the page on climate change started showing an error message.

Melting sea ice, sad photographs of polar bears, scientists' warnings on the Guardian homepage. . . these days, it's hard to avoid the question of climate change. This mole's anxiety levels are rising faster than the sea (and that, unfortunately, is saying something).

But there is one place you can go for a bit of respite: the White House website.

Now that Donald Trump is president of the United States, we can all scroll through the online home of the highest office in the land without any niggling worries about that troublesome old man-made existential threat. That's because the minute that Trump finished his inauguration speech, the White House website's page about climate change went offline.

Here's what the page looked like on January 1st:

And here's what it looks like now that Donald Trump is president:

The perfect summary of Trump's attitude to global warming.

Now, the only references to climate on the website is Trump's promise to repeal "burdensome regulations on our energy industry", such as, er. . . the Climate Action Plan.

This mole tries to avoid dramatics, but really: are we all doomed?

I'm a mole, innit.
