Billionaires racing to send exploration teams to find and extract rare earth minerals and oil from Greenland as glaciers rapidly melt.

  1. And just today, Reddit served me up an ad for a new "trading" service that lets you "invest" (i.e., wager) in predictions of natural disasters and other events.

  2. They're the psychopaths that haven't been able to rise to the top. At this point, I'm convinced a third of the population has these traits.
