A Famous Guy Explains Why It’ll Be Cheaper To Deal With Our Scary Weather Now Than Later

The debate has changed recently: People aren’t so much denying global warming as worrying about what dealing with it will do to our fragile economy. It’s a good question. But this video explains how we got here and why the longer we wait, the more expensive — and bad for the economy — it’ll be.

For the first time in its 56-year history, Sports Illustrated will feature a transgender model on its glossy cover. 23-year-old Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio will appear in the July issue, which hits stands early next week. Sampaio wrote on Instagram that she was "excited and honored" to be part of such an iconic issue, adding: "The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way."

A native of Fortaleza, a city in northeastern Brazil, Sampaio has been making history in the fashion world in recent years.

She managed to make an impression in a short time— launching her career at 18 years old—as L'Oréal Paris's first trans model. She hit another milestone last year, when she was the face of Victoria's Secret campaign, breaking barriers as the first trans woman working with the brand.
