New: Inside Kyiv's IT office, where a team of municipal tech employees decided not to evacuate and have spent the last five weeks repurposing everyday technology for a city facing a 20th-century style war.

After over half a decade of debunking this hoax every time there was a flood or hurricane, I can't believe I'm looking at an honest-to-god street shark. Good to finally meet you, pal.

I have flown storms for the last six years. This flight to Hurricane #Ian on Kermit ( #NOAA42 ) was the worst I’ve ever been on. I’ve never seen so much lightning in an eye. This was the eye. You can see the curvature. Understand this is at NIGHT. The light is from LIGHTNING.

There’s a new Ebola outbreak, a major hurricane, & an intensifying war in Ukraine, which means the disinformation is going to be absolutely off-the-charts. Those three topics are among the most heavily disinfo-saturated topics I’ve ever studied, and they’re all happening at once.
