There’s a particular emotion to learning that you're in a self-driving car without your consent. Like, a weird mixture of fear, anger and "Jesus take the wheel" resignation

Every time Wisdom pops her head into the global news, I'm reminded how much has changed in this one Albatross lifetime. She hatched under a sky empty of satellites, into an air with a quarter less CO2 & into a world with three times as many seabirds globally as today.

If the worst that can be said about you is that you demonstrated empathy when someone said they were harmed, then you're doing fine. No need to explain, to backtrack or to absolve yourself of anything. Keep it moving.

The most depressing thing about "we can't nominate a leftist, defeating Trump is too important" logic is that a wildly unpopular far-right incumbent like Trump gives the left unprecedented power to win over the center.

I like to draft in italics! It feels less permanent and gives me a sense similar to scribbling in a notebook.

Kirkus gave GHOST DAYS a stellar review! 's art is "marvelous," and the writing is "crisp and highly sensory, building tension within each fable with the skill of a veteran storyteller." excuse me, I'm hyperventilating

Hey, , if you’re gonna run a story that’s mostly about my tweet, you can ask me to write it and then PAY ME FOR IT. I’m a professional writer. I would have offered my perspective on the cultural importance of hair in the Star Wars universe in my piece.

BREAKING: the police have started arresting children for standing up for their future. We just want justice. This is wrong.

The legal fate of Trump's emergency is no forgone conclusion. We've let a lot of sweeping executive powers just sit around, waiting to be abused

There's a beautiful green anole wandering around outside the window where I'm working. I really can't be expected to be productive under these conditions

This story pairs nicely, by the way, with the equally epic feature on the grandiosity of China's Belt & Road Initiative, and the human rights violations it's producing in Kazakhstan. The infrastructure tsunami is upon us.

Required reading on what called for by a Green New Deal really looks like and entails (extra props for giving so much attention to decarbonzing agriculture!)
