How Trump Could Get Fired | The New Yorker
The history of besieged Presidencies is, in the end, the history of hubris, of blindness to one’s faults, of deafness to warnings.

Nevada-California desert ‘half empty’ of birds after population collapse
Over the past century, the number of bird species has fallen by an average of 43 percent at survey sites across an area larger than New York state. Almost a third of species are less common and widespread now than they once were throughout the region...

The decline of birds could impact the animals that prey on them and desert plants that rely on birds to pollinate their flowers and spread their seeds.

Researchers are calling it a collapse because it has occurred across the entire desert bird community.

“Studies elsewhere have found that climate change typically makes places unfavorable for some birds but opens the door for others to come in,” Iknayan said. “In the desert we are not seeing increases in any of our species except for the common raven. There are a lack of climate change winners in the system.”

As Homeless Find Refuge in Forests, ‘Anger Is Palpable’ in Nearby Towns - The New York Times
NEDERLAND, Colo. — Gerald Babbitt lives in these woods, in a pop-up trailer on cinder blocks that he bought for $250. His toilet is a bucket, and when he and his wife need to refill their water jugs, they drive their creaky green Jeep a mile down the mountain and into town.

Penn Jillette, In Conversation
But if there aren’t meaningful jobs, is there any reason for libertarianism? I have been very seduced lately by the basic universal human income. But would we be able to find work that would fulfill us if we were on a basic universal income? Really, though, my libertarianism has come down to trying to get into the thought process on any question of Is there a way to solve this with more freedom instead of less? Sometimes the answer’s no. But I think libertarianism is a good thing to have in the conversation. If you told me right now that the United States is going to go to a fully libertarian government I think I’d be against it. But do I want that idea to be discussed? Yes.
