Resistance

Trump’s first week in office was as bad as we imagined it might be, and then some. Any hopes of him “acting presidential” are now gone. After the election of this fascist authoritarian oligarch, the US science community is in deep trouble. Facts themselves are in deep trouble! The environment, civil rights, and health care are all in deep trouble. The whole planet is in deep trouble. We have a lot of things to be concerned about since the election of Trump. Should we freak out and give up or keep trying to change minds? Will it matter, in a world where facts no longer matter?

Some stories to dwell on while you ponder whether or not to give up and move to Canada:
