Teetotalers who like cocktails once had few options. @henryhitchings tells “The Intelligence” that’s changing: you could stock a whole bar with booze-free “spirits”

@richardthorndy2 Contrary to what the headline implies, this isn't really about teetotalers, but about the rise in low-alc drinks offering consumers more choice. These spirits provide an opportunity to drink more thoughtfully - and less - rather than being mainly for those overcoming addiction.

@TheEconomist @henryhitchings Slippery slope.

It's not just the physical addiction to the stuff, gang. It's the psychological aspect as well. But if you think keeping a whole bar in your home with "booze-free spirits" won't impede your recovery, fine. Might be easier to give up the idea of "cocktails", tho.

Today was a historic day. A day filled with optimism and hope for the future. A day that included meaningful actions on the most urgent issues of our time...like rejoining the #ParisClimateAgreement 👏

I just got a notice on my phone from my Weather Channel app that @POTUS signed the order to rejoin the #ParisClimateAgreement.

The Weather Channel.

In the words of the President, this is a BFD.

But in one small corner of one small part of the world there are several Australian conservatives.

They're not cheering Biden's reentry to the #ParisClimateAgreement. They're mourning the loss of their spiritual leader.

U.S. part of @WHO and #ParisClimateAgreement again. #MuslimBan ended. #DACA reinforced. We can't take back the damage Trump policies caused for yrs, seeing them reversed brings me hope.
