There’s a new post by Kendra Crossen about our ‘global weirding.’
So it’s not just that there are extreme phenomena occurring, but the things that are happening are weird.

Or rain in the wintertime above the Arctic Circle where it’s supposed to be snowing. Or a species’ habitat being pulled out from under them like a rug.
