    Although we might have thought that climate change was the most serious existential threat that the Trump administration is aiding and abetting, it appears that we were mistaken. If we engage in a nuclear war with North Korea, only cockroaches and other species with superlative survival features will need to adapt to climate change. And, here is some good news: in the absence of humans, in a few hundred years global warming will cease. (Of course there will still be some lethal radioactivity.) Humans have been around for about 100,000 years, which is not a bad run as species go, but it’s just an instant in the time of life on Earth. So, let’s keep everything in perspective. I recommend watching “Dr. Strangelove” again.
