We’re Watching the Slow Poisoning of the Supreme Court

Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation was unusually contentious and bitter, but it wasn’t an aberration.

On Saturday, Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court by a narrow 50–48 Senate voteended one the the most vicious battles of a particularly vicious partisan era. The debate was initially about his record as an aggressively right-wing jurist (which followed a career in right-wing politics); after the accusation by Christine Blasey Ford that he tried to rape her when they were both teenagers, the country consumed itself in an argument over the veracity of the allegations, whether they were disqualifying, and which side was revealing itself to be more craven and underhanded. In response to the attempted rape claim from Ford and more misconduct allegations from other women, Kavanaugh lashed out during a hearing with a conspiratorial rant about how Democrats had been "lying in wait" with a "new tactic" once it became clear they couldn’t defeat him through normal means. The moment led many of his former allies to conclude he lacked the temperament or neutrality necessary to hold a seat on the Supreme Court.

CLIMATE PANEL: CATASTROPHIC GLOBAL CHANGE IMMINENT A sobering new report issued by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that the world is rapidly running out of time to scale back greenhouse gas emissions. The document says that global warming must be kept within 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels to stave off catastrophic planetary changes. To do that, fossil fuels must be aggressively phased out to meet net-zero emissions by mid-century. More immediately, emissions would have to drop by about 45 percent below 2010 levels by 2030.

Here’s Why Americans Don’t Have Any Close Friends

"We’re not creating community center opportunities fast enough that are relevant for today”

At age 30, Radha Argawal looked at herself in the mirror as she was getting ready to go out on a snowy night in New York City and noticed something: she didn’t look happy.

"Other than with my identical twin sister, Miki, and a small group of friends whom I lived but rarely saw because they were scattered around the globe, I didn’t feel a strong sense of belonging anywhere," she writes in her debut book "BELONG: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life." "I found myself stuck at the same sports bar every Saturday with friends who talked about stuff I didn’t care about, and I frequently drank until I blacked out."
