2021 will be a tough year on the west. Feels like this is just the start to a long hot summer.


We’ve really got to grapple with the rise of climate change – summers will get worse, droughts will cause more wildfires, and shit will continue to spiral.


Outraged Republicans scream “Overreach!” tell voters to water their lawns and wash their cars at least 4 times a day.
