    This is the 700bhp Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

    “A takedown artist.” That’s how Ford describes the gobby-looking new Mustang Shelby GT500. We presume that’s ‘Murican for ‘giant killer’.That’s backed up by Ford’s bullish claim that “the new Shelby GT500 will surprise supercar owners with its Ford Performance racing tech, supercharged engine and visceral swagger". Sounds punchy, until you look at the spec and discover the Shelby is every inch the musclebound supercar botherer.

    The case for "conditional optimism" on climate change

    Is there any hope on climate change, or are we just screwed? I hear this question all the time. When people find out what I do for a living, it is generally the first thing they ask. I never have a straightforward or satisfying answer, so I usually dodge it, but in recent years it has come up more and more often. So let’s tackle it head on. In this post, I will lay out the case for pessimism and the case for (cautious) optimism, pivoting off a new series of papers from leading climate economis...

    Four Republican members of the Supreme Court just said that Trump can ignore the law

    On Friday, the Supreme Court denied the Trump administration’s request to reinstate an unlawful effort to prevent many refugees from seeking asylum in the United States. This order is not surprising, as the Trump administration’s arguments are so weak that they literally were rejected by the judge who wrote infamous Bush era memos authorizing torture.
