    U.S. Border Policy on Pot Is About to Get Even Stupider 

    As pot is legalized in Canada, U.S. drug laws have never looked so absurd. Todd Owen, an officer in the Office of Field Operations, told Politico how border security plans on dealing with this development, and it’s extremely stupid. It turns out that when our border patrol agents aren’t locking up children, they’ll be targeting Canadians who like to smoke weed legally.

    This is how the world ends: will we soon see category 6 hurricanes?

    There is no such thing as a category 6 hurricane or tropical storm – yet.

Meteorologists and scientists never imagined that there would be a need for a category 6 storm, with winds that exceed 200 miles per hour on a sustained basis, sweeping away everything in its path. Until now, such a storm...

    Half the planet should be set aside for wildlife – to save ourselves

    If we want to avoid mass extinctions and preserve the ecosystems all plants and animals depend on, governments should protect a third of the oceans and land by 2030 and half by 2050, with a focus on areas of high biodiversity.

But new research shows that sometimes the parasite gets a taste of its own medicine, and from an unexpected source. Scientists studying wasps that target oak leaves found that a second parasite, a vine, can get its tendrils into the homes set up by the wasps, called galls, subverting their diversion of the host’s resources. After that, things don’t go so well...
