Sometime in the near future it is highly probable that the Arctic will no longer have sea ice, meaning zero ice for the first time in eons, aka: the Blue Ocean Event.

Everyone remembers Trump's comment about how he loves the "poorly educated." He's lucky they exist; they're basically what's propping up what's left of hid favorable numbers in polling. He does worst among people who are college educated, more so among people with graduate degrees. I was...
