The Weekly Round Up: January 22-28

Holy shit this week was a mess.  Trump just can’t seem to quit being an all around awful human being, and because of it, the US is looking pretty broken right now.  It does explain all the rain we’ve been getting here though- it should be snowing, but since we live up above a giant flaming pile of refuse, it’s just too hot.  I honestly don’t know how to respond to any of it- it’s pretty shocking, disgusting, mindboggling, scary- so I’m just going to try and run things as per usual.  Things aren’t as per usual, things are anything but usual, but I need this to run the same.  So I know there is bigger news out there, I get that, but this news here will be the same as usual.  So, here’s the environmental news that caught my attention this week.
