| Very hot days in New York with weatherman forecasting more hot days even hotter.
Some people crumple. It’s hard to forget about, no matter what you’re doing. It also makes bad news worse. The oil spill in the Mediterranean affected me almost as if it had happened to me. The war is bad but the oil spill in that sea will affect the food chain for millions and millions of people, including all the warring factions.
Are we seriously idiotic? We are seriousy idiotic (I mean us, the human race). I won’t go into the Hezbollah-Israeli War. I know most people know what they think about that. I don’t. Except that it is clearer and clearer by hot day after hot day that we are now living in the danger zone, no matter where we are. Or so it would seem.
There’s worse. The Los Angeles Times is currently running a five part series called “Altered Oceans.” It’s about the changing chemistry of the oceans. Changing because of human activity. I dare you to read any part (there are five) without wanting to quit reading because it’s too hard to take. It reduces everything else that matters and exists to the inconsequential.
I was telling a friend about it. He said what most people I know say: “Well, whattaya gonna do about it?” Meaning: if it’s such a big problem, what can anyone do anyway? So live, love, laugh and be happy? I don’t think so. Reading these segments, it’s easy to think things are impossible to repair.
