A highly intelligent social animal to be grown inside another species, and introduced into a world that it has not evolved in, into an alien social environment, exposed to alien pathogens, and for why? Not a single valid scientific reason. Just hubris and cruelty.
As for transforming the tundra? What a bunch of winnets. How about using all that knowledge and money to do something useful instead of this slippery ass-crack of a vanity project.

This thing of utter beauty has arrived. And it has a reading ribbon! @FryRsquared
And pictures! By @theAliceRoberts
And I love reading the index. Where else do you get Luke Skywalker next to the Skraeling? Or Dwayne Johnson, Jesse (my whippet) and Jesus?

Thanks to everyone flagging up Lionel Shriver’s piece in the Spectator. I have read it, and it is very unsophisticated Replacement Theory, and lands straightforward far-right conspiracy theory talking points which haven’t changed in more than a century.

Shriver’s piece echoes these sentiments very specifically. She is biologically and historically illiterate on this matter. Her words are very specifically reminiscent of those of Tom Buchanan in Gatsby too:

Because I believe bay leaves to be a fiction, and people who use them are bay shills, in the pocket of Big Bay, I am conducting a blinded Bolognese experiment. Results as and when they happen. #Science

Crikey. I am extremely thrilled to be awarded the @royalsociety David Attenborough Prize. Like so many of us, he was my first inspiration in science, and triggered a lifelong love of evolution and genetics which continues to burn royalsociety.org/grants-schemes…
Such fine company too, with @sophiescott Jocelyn Bell Burnell, @genemodeller, @SerenaNikZainal and loads of others. Congratulations!
Thanks to all the people who gave me opportunities, in science and in talking about science. There are too many to name, but Georgina Henry at the Guardian, Deborah Cohen in the BBC Radio Science Unit, my editor @jennyjennylord, my supervisors Jane Sowden and Hazel Smith…

Ok cos I can’t watch the #LionsTour2021 on holiday, I’ve found an Mills and Boon novella and by god it’s hot. Nikki and Carter are playing strip poker. Carter is trying to resist. But this is only going one way.
Wait, encased?? Do breasts tighten??
‘It wasn’t quite a gasp, but it wasn’t normal breathing either.’ Covid? Carter needs his inhaler.
Her trousers were history.

Wait what she has freakishly long legs.
