Hey, look, the Phillippines may be electing someone worse than Trump. I vaguely wonder if there is any cultural relationship between this and the Northern Mariana Islands going so hard for Trump in the primary.

Some Pacific Islands are sinking! But maybe not due to climate change.

Halo has been pretty laid back about the coming FDA regs, but now that they’re out, they’re going to court.

This map looks like I would expect it to, with the Northeast ahead of the curve because it’s the northeast and they’ll regulate anything, and Appalachia because they have some of the most pressing problems.

At Unz Review, Anatoly Karlin breaks down Soviet scientists by ethnicity.

A lot of folks on the left talk about Wingnut Welfare, which is the phenomenon where rich right-wingers fund all sorts of think tanks and media. Turns out, BSDI, and lefty outfits team up with the government.

The EPA temporarily debunked claims that weedkillers were causing cancer, before it was quickly retracted.
