One of the biggest drivers of deforestation is road construction and mass unemployment. Subsistence agriculture is the social safety net of inefficient economies.…
"For centuries, ranchers have used fire to clear fields and new land. But this year, drought worsened by climate change turned the wetlands into a tinderbox and the fires raged out of control."
It is often a poor property regime that drives the destruction of what are in effect the commons. Govt ownership is very often the worst way to manage land. Effectively using land near existing roads removes the incentive to harvest raw nature.
If Climate policies create mass unemployment in the 3rd world look for everything to burn.

It looks like foreign involvement in national elections, American or elsewhere, malevolent or not, intentional or otherwise, is now baked into the system.

Nobody can say for certain whether the H Biden allegations are true any more than of the Steele dossier at the outset. But it they are (and were) substantial enough to merit examination. However you cannot examine a question if the question itself is not allowed to exist.
Certainly the alleged H Biden emails are a curious object.If they are not what they are purported to be then they are surely proof of political fraud or perhaps even foreign intelligence meddling. As such the press should be eager to get to the bottom of it in either case.
We are at the stage where the question itself is regarded as inadmissible because it is 'too ludicrous to fact check'. The idea that some speech is not worth the time is one or the arguments against "weaponized free speech", that some filter is required to reduce the noise.

Who was the "big guy"?
Could there be other "big guys" in Washington? Where you find one there's bound to be another. How can this ever be cleaned up?

Repair company should be ashamed of itself for examining computer allegedly belonging to H. Biden.…
Despite their lofty social positions it's possible that some famous people are really naive in regard to how computers work.…
This is no ill reflection on them, just an observation on the deplorable cluelessness of mankind overwhelmed by the information revolution. We are most of us in over our heads.

In answering the puzzle of how ACB can be in the running for SCOTUS while having 7 children it may be useful to remember what older generations knew. In big families siblings looked after each other.
Actually "Christian women with large families" weren't freaks but comprised a substantial percentage of the population of what was called Western Civilization, including the Greatest Generation. The challenge is for moderns to equal their survivability of their predecessors.
