A biology professor at the University of Washington in Seattle believes the stress caused by President Donald Trump’s time in office will lead to a permanent change in human genetics.
Ward argued that significant traumas — like abuse or military combat — can cause “permanent change” to the human genome. He went on to suggest Trump’s presidency is akin to those traumas and will have an “evolutionary consequence” on humanity.
Professor, UW Dept of Biology
Under a Green Sky: global warming, the mass extinctions, of the past and what they can tell us about our future mass extinctions.
In Under a Green Sky, Ward explains how the Permian extinction as well as four others happened, and describes the freakish oceans—belching poisonous gas—and sky—slightly green and always hazy—that would have attended them. Those ancient upheavals demonstrate that the threat of climate change cannot be ignored, lest the world's life today—ourselves included—face the same dire fate that has overwhelmed our planet several times before

Key word there.. Long term...
6 months is not long enough to have had any measurable effect.

Yeah but it's science
He is a professor, so you just can't dismiss it as psycho babble, it's science
Then again, figure if I was marooned on a island, he isn't a professor that I would want to help get me off the island
