After the New York Times blindsided subscribers by hiring a hardcore conservative who suggested there was room to question some climate change studies, the paper naturally owed it to readers to right the ship and get it back on course.
Those readers found some comfort food in the paper in the form of an opinion piece suggesting there was more to love about Vladimir Lenin than simply his achievements as a communist revolutionary; it turns out he was an avid hiker and camper, and that legacy has inspired generations of eco-warriors intent on preserving Russia’s nature reserves.

Hey, if Gloria Steinem can cite a lack of abortions as the fundamental cause of climate change and still be cheered at the Women’s March in D.C., the Times isn’t going to lose any readers over this.
Well, he did winnow the population by about five million in 1921, so there's that. https://t.co/C42ePwHD6N
