If you are a well-connected rich white guy, however, there really is no reason to run from the law, plead the Fifth, destroy evidence, fight subpoenas, perjure yourself, or seek pardons.

How Outdoor Enthusiasts Can Help Research About Climate

When Gregg Treinish set out to hike the length of the Andes Mountains at age 24, there was a lot he didn’t know. For starters, he didn’t realize he and his hiking partner, Deia Schlosberg, would be the first to do it. Or that their 22-month, 7,800-mile trek would gain them international recognition.   He also had no idea what he would do next — but he sure had a lot of time to think about it.

We stand at a precipice. On one side is "reality": the original, authentic, lived human experience. And on the other side is the metaverse: the world of constantly mediated experience.
