GLOBAL CAPITAL PRESENTS: ENDLESS SUMMER
Labor Day is often thought of as the traditional end of summer. That is changing. Within a few decades when even I may still be alive summer may simply not end hereabouts, at least, not until long after September has passed by. While the climate deniers hang on for dear life, and Romney and company make jokes about healing the earth and rising oceans, scientists are increasingly coming to the conclusions that the predictions they have made in the past regarding global climate change are...TOO CONSERVATIVE.
Maybe you would like to spend months on end with temperatures over one hundred degrees, no rain is sight, and with fires burning everywhere. Maybe that is a dream of yours. I would like to say, I'll pass. However, I don't really think I have any choice in the matter anymore. Some say there is still time. I don't think so. More importantly Capital doesn't care, can't be bothered with that sort of nonsense. Kill the grandkids is the battle cry of the Empire.
After all these years, those strange folks hollering the end is near sound like the only one's who really get it.
Pisses me off!
