Welcome to The New OK Doomer
A little housekeeping: I've moved just about everyone over to the new site. You'll be getting digests and important articles 2-3 times a week from here. I was able to migrate everyone's emails but not their paid subscription info. That's not really a big deal. You can wait until your subscription expires through Substack and then re-up it here whenever you want. Just make sure you turn off auto-renew over at Substack first. In the meantime, I'm going to keep all the content free, so you won't miss anything.
If you don't want the emails, there's an easy way to stop or unsubscribe now. Click on your member icon in the top right-hand corner. The site will guide you through opting out of emails and/or canceling.
There's a lot hitting the fan this week.
Let's dive in.
There's a new study out that delves into the minds of conspiracy theorists. My takeaway: We've all got conspiracy theories now. Some of them are accurate. Some of them are just excuses.
Joe Biden says he has "practically" declared a climate emergency.
The fires in Lahaina are tragic. They weren't totally unpredictable. Climate change has turned the entire world into a tinderbox.
An Alabama mom finally figured out that the world isn't fair.
A little while ago, I wrote a piece on collective amnesia. In light of what's going on, I figured it could use an update.
That's it for now. See everyone in a few days.
