David Roberts @drvox Seattleite transplanted from Tennessee; now blogging for vox.com/ about energy politics. Climate hawk, deficit dove. Not a doctor. Oct. 12, 2018 1 min read

The most disturbing revelation of the Trump years is that an American slide to fascism does not need to be kept hidden. It doesn't need to be subtle, or covered with dog whistles. It can unfold right in front of us, plain as day, and institutional leaders will mostly just gawp.

This seems like as good a place as any to put on record one of my most depressing predictions: the increasing severity of climate impacts will not serve as impetus to international cooperation, but the opposite. It will empower nationalists, isolationists, & reactionaries.
