As expected, coming back to Umeå was somewhat of a shock, both weather and work load wise. Tonight I at least found a moment to roast some sweet potatoes with pomegranate salsa and coconut halloumi.

Over the weekend, the Norwegian professor Jørgen Randers was interviewed in Svenska Dagbladet saying that expert rule is preferable to democracy (“expert” here presumably meaning Malthusians such as himself). Like back in 2010 when James Lovelock suggested that democracy must be “put on hold” in order to solve the climate crisis, I do not know what to make of Randers’ flagrant contempt for democratic norms and values. I guess it just shows how deep into the rabbit hole that we have fallen.
