Oh, Fuck It All!
A record loss of sea ice in the Arctic this summer has convinced scientists that the northern hemisphere may have crossed a critical threshold beyond which the climate may never recover.Ummm...what we have now is a stable climate?
Scientists fear that the Arctic has now entered an irreversible phase of warming which will accelerate the loss of the polar sea ice that has helped to keep the climate stable for thousands of years.
All I know is that I'm glad I've pretty much given up driving, I've given up DSL (at home), I'm getting used to not watching TV and that I've riding my bicycle 5-15 miles every day for the past month.
It's a simpler life, that still has its complications -- but it's decidedly simpler.
When Tina Turner steps up and starts singing We Don't Need Another Hero....automobiles, Katie Couric, wireless internet and this blog won't mean a damn thing...I just need to be looking fit and trim in my chain-mail here-comes-the-apocalypse outfit.
Like I said before, if it's the end of days -- I'm going out skinny!
Have a good weekend, y'all...
