Climate change, Trump has told us, is a Chinese hoax.  Yet those who have begun to doubt his scientific credentials may find this, from the National Academy of Sciences, of interest:


. . . the researchers found that the position of the human climate niche is projected to change more in the next 50 years than it has during the past 6,000. Such a shift would leave 1 billion to 3 billion people outside the climate conditions that have nurtured human society to date. . . .


After he solves the pandemic — more bleach, perhaps? — we should enlist him to solve the climate crisis.  He alone can fix it.



Until then — or if God forbid Putin wins againRegional partnerships may offer a new framework for dealing with urgent issues on which Washington has failed to lead.




A friend sent this video of Wuhan China.  I knew it was a large city (11 million), but I wouldn’t have expected it to look like this (thanks, Mel!):

[UPDATE: Another friend wrote in to tell me we’d been had.  All these buildings are real, and in China, he said (or at least was pretty sure); but they’re not all in Wuhan.  I did some Googling and found videos that suggested, yes, much of the city is impressive . . . but perhaps not as impressive as above.]
