Within moments of the inauguration of President Trump, the official White House website on Friday deleted nearly all mentions of climate change.
The digital change, which flashed into place at noon on Friday, immediately placed into sharp relief some of the starkest differences between the old president and the new.

President Trump presented such a graceless and disturbingly ahistoric vision of America on Friday that his Inaugural Address cast more doubt than hope on his presidency.

It was already pretty great, despite its flaws, before he took office Friday.

More than 23,000 people in the United States are estimated to die every year from resistant bacteria. That death toll will grow as microbes develop new mechanisms to defeat the drugs that, for decades, have kept infections at bay. We are on the cusp of what the World Health Organization calls a “post-antibiotic era.”
To keep infections at bay, we need to fix the broken antibiotic business model.

Expect big tax cuts, especially for business owners and wealthy investors, in the name of invigorating economic growth. That's going to be a big contrast with President Obama and the Democrats, who put bigger emphasis on using tax policy to correct a wealth distribution they consider unfair.

We’ve never had a major national leader as professionally unprepared, intellectually ill informed, morally compromised and temperamentally unfit as Trump. But we can always hope he will be better than the predictions.
America can unite by containing the new president.

Americans so insistently celebrate the peaceful transfer of power precisely because they nervously recognize the susceptibility of their polity to violence. 
Commentators love to praise the peaceful handover of power—but this year, it stands as a reminder of the system’s fragility.

"...they nervously recognize the susceptibility of their polity to violence."
Yeah, +Esther Wojcicki, I remember all those conservatives rioting, attacking police, and destroying property in 2008 and 2012...oh...wait a minute....
Sorry, but it's just YOUR party that prone to violence, Esther. Maybe someone as supposedly educated as you should be contemplating that and wondering if you're really backing the groups of people you should be.
