Megadroughts, Internet Trolls, and More

Reading the first large-scale academic inquiry into 4chan, one might think we'd be better off if the lights went out. And that might just happen for large swathes of the U.S., if the authors of this study at Science Advances projecting very high probabilities for megadrought in the American Southwest this century have got it right. But that isn't what's keeping the sky pilots up in Texas. First Baptist Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress, one of Donald Trump's big-name evangelical champions, is slated to deliver a talk on "America's Coming Implosion" to an anti-LGBT conference sponsored by several known hate groups. Trump is also finding support among Hindu nationalists who seem convinced by Trump's Muslim-bashing that they have a common enemy and are therefore friends. And the Trump train rolls on.

What I wouldn't give for a holocaust cloak.
