Power may skip over the Gen Xers directly from the Boomers to the Millennials, Matthew Hennessey worries in the redoubtable City Journal. There’s a related podcast episode “Generation X, Millennials, and Technology” (which, when googling “city journal millennials”, ranks above the article).

Thank you Bjorn Lomborg for the courage to articulate the problem that is the climate change distraction. The immediate fallout from fixations is their opportunity costs.

Now that it’s over, time to tell the neo-medievalists: hurricanes are not new to Florida. Nicely researched and written piece by a chagrined resident.

Robots don’t eat chocolate. James Meek weaves a rich tale of Cadbury’s moving its chocolate factory from Bristol in England to Skarbimierz in Poland. We get EU politics, British commercial history and contemporary Polish politics. It’s a microcosm of the economic game of musical chairs happening in our era.

Smart liberal reporters are probably inclined to think that smart liberal experts are right when they say things the smart liberal reporters already agree with.

Headlines say 2016 hottest year ever. Yes, 0.01°C hotter than 2015. But working from statistics that claim a margin of error of 0.1°C! Ah, truthiness.

The world’s most (only?) prescient columnist takes a step back to show us where Russia and China are similar and different to America. This article is one for these new times, to be sure.

Ian Buruma on Brussels. I found it a pretty exciting city so when I saw this article I jumped on it (plus I vaguely remember being impressed by something else this fellow wrote) and it’s pretty sweeping and fun.

Now that I’ve joined eyeem.com, I was attracted to this article on Instagram and art history. “Today, we look at Instagram feeds with the same level of scrutiny as the Renaissance merchants who converted their Madonnas into ducats.” He argues persuasively and enjoyably that we are being just like Amsterdam burghers.

Possibly the world’s most important story at the moment? American middle-class impoverishment, or as the author—himself afflicted—calls it, financial impotence.

The impressive Mario Loyola, utterly cogent on climate, on The American Interest podcast. The gist: 1) Science has determined that the world is warming, but this has been going on for centuries. 1b) Science has not determined that man is causing this warming, so specific efforts to change our behavior may not have any effect. 2) The planet has undergone countless climactic changes and doesn’t need saving. 2b) Rather, various human communities may need assistance adapting to any temperature rises. So that’s where any money should be going. 3) The climate agreement as signed will collapse because once the costs start kicking in it will be examined more seriously and will fail any reasonable cost/benefit analysis.
