Summers in most of the U.S. are already warmer than they were in the 1970s. And climate models tell us that summers are going to keep getting hotter as greenhouse gas emissions continue. What will this warming feel like? Our new analysis of future summers illustrates just how dramatic warming is going to be by the end of this century if current emissions trends continue unabated.
For our Blistering Future Summers interactive we have projected summer high temperatures for the end of this century for 1,001 cities, and then showed which city in the U.S. — or elsewhere in the world, if we couldn’t find one here — is experiencing those temperatures today.

They point out that by 2100, Las Vegas will have temperatures similar to what Riyadh, Saudi Arabia experiences today, and Phoenix will be the new Kuwait City.

Elizabeth Warren's 11 commandments for progressives ⇢

  1. "We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it."
  2. "We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth."
  3. "We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality."
  4. "We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage."
  5. "We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them."
  6. "We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt."
  7. "We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions."
  8. "We believe—I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work."
  9. "We believe that equal means equal, and that’s true in marriage, it’s true in the workplace, it’s true in all of America."
  10. "We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform."
  11. "And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!"

Run The Jewels | “BLOCKBUSTER NIGHT PART 1” (snippet) | Run The Jewels 2

This is the first taste of Run The Jewels 2, and oh my fucking god, it’s nasty as hell.

A family member who’s entering high school this year posted on Instagram yesterday that “Nirvana is lifeeeee.”

And then I realized that a high school freshman in 2014 geeking out over Bleach or Nevermind has the same distance from those albums that I, as a freshman in 1995, had to Led Zeppelin III or Exile On Main St. and HOLY SHIT THAT MAKES ME FEEL OLD.

The New Pornographers | “War On The East Coast”

Posting this video mainly just so I can post this Stereogum commenter commenting maybe the best comment in the history of Stereogum comments:

15.

Fifteen years ago today, I put my arm around splendidstuff on the roof of a North Carolina beach house. Two days ago we had our ninth wedding anniversary. We have an objectively cute kid (who’s also a wildly destructive monster) and objectively cute dogs (same). We’ve been to foreign lands together, and also to the Pittsburgh IKEA. 

Guess I made the right choice.
