Forced birth in a country with:

—No universal healthcare

—One of the highest rates of maternal mortality among rich nations

This isn't about "life." It's about control.

#Climate activist Bill McKibben argued that Donald Trump’s arrest, which dominated headlines the day the Nature study came out, was far less remarkable as news goes. “Him ending up in trouble for tax evasion to cover up an affair with a porn star seems unlikely only in its details,” McKibben wrote, while the Antarctic story was “one of the most important installments in the most important saga of our time, the rapid decline of the planet’s physical health.”


A political party devoid of new ideas starts stripping people of their rights — voting, reproductive, etc. — to assert their dominance and control.

It’s a road to authoritarianism. Be warned.

Good morning. Our doors would be shutting today and all of us would be out of work, if 1000s of people hadn't come together to say that #TexasNeedsAnObserver.

We are so grateful to all of you on this #Newstodon Friday!

What Stormy Daniels called the worst 90 seconds of her life is going to haunt us much, much longer

You know how the Republicans are cutting the costs of social security and Medicare? They're killing off the elderly.

US life expectancy plummeted.

Oil, gas, and coal are fossil fuels.
Groundwater is fossil water.
Both are non-renewable when consumed faster than they are replenished.
Peak limits mean they must be replaced by renewable resources.

Haven’t signed up for Evolution 2023 yet? Now’s the time! Evolution is, after all, the study of change (with apologies to Walter White). In person from June 21-25 in Albuquerque, NM, and virtually from June 2-3, wherever you are.

Great illustration of how astroturf groups and unchecked opinion pieces create doubt in science. Sound familiar?

There is no moral justification for today’s extraordinary concentration of wealth at the very top.

It is distorting our politics, rigging our markets, and granting unprecedented power to a handful of people.

Wealth creates power; power creates more wealth. It's a vicious cycle.

Corporal punishment for disabled students is legal in Oklahoma and will remain legal because Republicans voted down a bill to change that. This is Oklahoma. :ablobgrimace:

Here's my new story about guidelines from the National Academy of Sciences for studying human genetic diversity.

Yet more terrible academic news. It would seem that, if you share your drafts with people rather than hiding your work in the cupboards, people can give you feedback to improve the work and result in stronger contributions overall.

Don’t let the name fool you, “right-to-work” laws are designed to diminish workers’ collective bargaining power by making it harder to form unions.

Michigan is ready to make history by becoming the first state in 60 years to repeal the anti-worker law.

The thought of DeSantis as the republican candidate for the presidency may be even more terrifying than Trump running again.
