A full 22 conservative thinkers (although, with the likes of Glenn Beck and William Kristol in the mix, we do of necessity use that term quite broadly) all weighed in on why Donald Trump is a terrible candidate for Republicans to consider making their presidential nominee, and why Trump is an all-around terrible human being.

As the world is today and the way the future looks, water brings some of our biggest challenges. For the second year in a row, the World Economic Forum has identified the water crisis as the biggest global risk for the coming years.
When demand outpaces water supply, communities often turn to difficult and costly solutions, such as building reservoirs, importing water or constructing desalination plants. But this week at the World Economic Forum, I'm pushing global leaders to consider a different solution.
