I'd say that great powers do arms control when they feel like it. And don't when they don't.
Heather Williams @firstname.lastname@example.org hopes China comes to understand that arms control: 1) is what great powers do, & 2) can get them things they want (isn’t a gift you give to someone else)
My own two cents: these stories should be reported not because they help or hinder Ukraine’s war effort, but because they are what is happening. It’s just the news.
I see people are still talking about that "science is getting less #disruptive" paper.
It is, of course, wrong in its interpretation because as usual scientists don't evaluate the profit taking systems that structure science and instead treat them like some natural phenomenon.
The results are trivially explained by the way citations are structured to prop up a prestige hierarchy of journals, I already wrote about this here about the last paper that said "science is slowing down" but y'all only read 15 page papers squarely within your discipline 🙃: https://doi.org/10.48550/arXiv.2209.07493
🕵️♀️ There is a lot of conspiracy about the men in military uniforms who stood behind Putin in his New Year’s address. Federal Protective Service, actors or war criminals? We found them all ➡️ https://evocation.info/en/massage-for-putin-who-really-stood-behind-the-dictator-in-his-new-year-address/

In 2023, Russia plans to resume ICBM launches from Kapustin Yar. These are normally launched toward Sary-Shagan in Kazakhstan to test re-entry vehicles. But since the last such test, in Nov 2019, TPNW treaty come into force. Kazakhstan is a party https://russianforces.org/blog/2022/12/missile_launches_in_2022_and_p.shtml 1/
Is geopolitics a grift? Is it a mind palace for reactionaries? Both? Why do geopoliticians blow off climate change and environmental degradation? And what did Nazis, in particular, see appealing in geopolitics? I sat down w/ Daniel Immerwahr (author of How to Hide an Empire) for a two-part podcast discussion that is definitely worth your time. Here's a sample https://youtu.be/HGwYNigNk_I
Lynching is a common form of violence in Latin America. How common?
Today, we release the first cross-national dataset on reported «Lynching in Latin America» (LYLA) from 2010-2019:
We found evidence of 2818 cases.

Lettland har dragit in licensen för den ryska oberoende tv-kanalen Dozjd, som tidigare förbjöds i Ryssland. Kanalen har gjort sig skyldig till ett par tabbar. På en karta var Krim markerat som ryskt, och en programledare nämnde något om att samla stöd till ryska trupper i Ukraina. Han har fått sparken.
Stationen anses hota Lettlands nationella säkerhet. Beslutet är säkert delvis inrikespolitiskt, men här tycker jag att Lettland skjuter sig i foten internationellt.
As predicted, just earlier: the initial „global greening“ effect due to our CO2 emissions has already been overwhelmed by the negative effect of climate change on vegetation. We’re now already into „global browning“.
Hugely important paper!
"Global greening" since the 1980s actually reversed around the year 2000
The trend turned to "browning" in 90% of vegetated area due to climates becoming too hot and dry in…
