Donald Trump lies to the nation for 80 minutes straight tonight

Donald Trump lies to the nation for 80 minutes straight tonight

Needless to say, I won't be watching this farce. I have chicken to blacken, potatoes to roast, carrots to stream, and good Manhattans to mix. Feel free to talk about the speech, or to talk about art, and music, and writing, and sports, or any damned thing. Yes, we have to know what he's saying; we also have to stay sane and grounded.

In that vein, I'm posting a video which debuted in the 1990s, and which I have mentioned before. Hosted by British science presenter James Burke, it's called "After the Warming", showing what might happen in the wake of climate change. Remember, this was 1990; climate change, outside of scientific circles, was not an urgent topic. And with Trump undoing climate policy, this seems like a good counter-program to his address.

This is your open thread.
