Nice weather we’re having.

Folks comment on unusual weather a lot these days. For several years I’ve enjoyed responding with the joke, ‘but it’s not Global Warming!’

At last, people have stopped getting it. Everybody knows the planet’s heating up. The blubbering foo-bobs still in public denial are being ignored in their political corners. So people are forgetting why my response was funny. But of course, we have no collective will to address the situation.

As voters, we’re always going to put taxes, war, and development before everything else. So I suggest we start fixing the environment by using our pocketbooks, instead. It isn’t easy to do. There are plenty of energy sources less destructive than those we pay our power companies for. We need a way to choose to pay for the ones we want.
