I 100% agree. If I wanted to be warned that the world is being destroyed, I'll just go to Twitter, which summarizes it in fewer characters.

From a writing perspective, I've become disenchanted with clickbait-y headlines. If I see one, I tell myself that the writer just wants eyeballs and not intellectual, civil discourse.

In fact, that's why I like this article--because it didn't have a threat in it. I wish AI wold learn that I abhor clickbait. Maybe if I write it a bunch of times and speak it into my phone and computer.
