WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT … ENOUGH. The Aug. 19 cover story on the El Paso and Dayton shootings and the growing threat of white nationalism sparked strong debate. “I grew up around guns and own a couple,” wrote Vicki Hoss of Leland, N.C., “but there’s no reason someone can get a gun so easily.” In response to President Bill Clinton’s op-ed calling for the reinstatement of an assault-weapons ban, the singer Barbra Streisand tweeted: “There is no reason for any civilian to have a weapon of war.” Charles Batteau of Glen Allen, Va., believes “the solutions will probably require changes in our culture and society which will be uncomfortable for liberals and conservatives alike,” while Saul P. Heller of Peabody, Mass., writes “the people must take matters into their own hands”…

a nuclear accident in northern russia accelerates a 21st century arms race

THE NEWS TRICKLED OUT SLOWLY. ON Aug. 8, Russian state media reported at least two people killed in a mysterious accident in the country’s far north. Then came news of a spike in radiation near a White Sea military facility and footage that seemed to show doctors in hazmat suits treating victims. Finally, on Aug. 13, five days after the blast, the Kremlin confirmed five nuclear scientists had died testing one of the newest weapons in President Vladimir Putin’s arsenal, the first apparent victims of a new arms race. IGNEOUS ROCKET Putin promised the world a new type of nuclear missile during a 2018 address, one able to penetrate any defense. To illustrate his point, he showed an animation of a rocket striking Florida. But the explosion on Aug. 8 suggests…

can changing what we eat help stop climate change?

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUMANS AND the land we live on has evolved over hundreds of thousands of years, but no period has involved such rapid change as the past century, when we began using land in new ways to extract wealth and build a modern economy. A landmark U.N. report released on Aug. 8 warns that humans now face a moment of reckoning over the way we use the planet’s land: either we change our ways, particularly our diets, or risk devoting huge swaths of land to uses that spew far more carbon dioxide than we can afford. The report, authored by more than 100 scientists from 52 countries on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the U.N.’s climate-science body, found that emissions from land use—practices like agriculture and logging—cause…

BETO O’ROURKE SITS IN AN ARMCHAIR IN HIS El Paso living room, tapping his foot and trying not to talk about himself. It’s three days after the mass shooting that left at least 22 dead and 26 injured at a Walmart just under 10 miles from where his family lives. His kids have strewn arts and crafts across the coffee table. (Friendship bracelets, in just about any color you could want.) His wife Amy is sitting in the chair next to his. O’Rourke is talking about the shooter. “This guy who came here was afraid of this community because he had been taught to be afraid,” he says. “These border communities are safe not despite but because they’re communities of immigrants. There’s something very special about these places.” In the days since…
