Tuesday #column: As the #NobelPeacePrize closed in, the world was hoping for a #GretaThunberg win. But peace is about compromise. And there's nothing so uncompromising as a child demanding restitution from its wardens. #environmentalism #politics #writing
An Ill Figured Nomination:
Tuesday #column: The movie #BladeRunner is a masterpiece, no dice. But after having to defend its honour with blade and shot I'm left with a stark realisation. Not everything about it is very good. But everything doesn't have to be. #art #movies #writing
She Said that Blade Runner was Stupid!:
Tuesday #column: Greta Thunberg is on the world's lips, but back in Sweden people are more concerned with how to administrate the civil disobediance of children skipping school for the benefit of #ClimateStrikes. #EnvironmentFail #Environmentalism #politics #writing
Filing for Future:
Tuesday #column: How someone lit half of Saudi Arabia's oil production capacity on fire, how world markets scramble to deal with the resulting fuel deficit, and why I celebrate it. #AramcoDroneStrike #SaudiOilFields #HouthiPrecision #writing #politics #yemenwar

Left in the Deep End:
Tuesday #column: Nothing good ever comes out of stripping millions of inhabitants of their citizenships, but that's what nationalist #NarendraModi of India has just done. #ResistNationalism #Racism #AssamNCR #BJP #writing
Every Shade of Racism:
Tuesday #column: As the world's single largest carbon sink is up in flames, one might wonder how it came to be that we hedged all our breathing bets on one solitary forest. #AmazonFires #ClimateCollapse #politics #environmentalism #writing
The Amazonian Basket:
Tuesday #column: Every year, teachers complain about the same old thing. And every year they're missing the point. It's not about #screentime and the proliferation of mobile devices in the classroom (and elsewhere). It's what's shown on those screens...
The Icarus Device:
Tuesday #column: #ASAPRocky is home, disappearing from Swedish shores before the judge's gavel fell. I'll be surprised if he shows up to face his sentence. So here's my suggestion on what Sweden could get out of Mayers' flight.
