This is why I never had children  
Or ever will.

We have 10 years until the point of no return. After that, global warming will produce worldwide climate change. Even massive cutbacks in emissions after that time will not help.

I'm about at the point where I want to give up electricity and go homestead up in the wilds of northern Ontario. When is it no longer paranoid to say WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES AND EVERYONE ELSE?

I developed anxiety disorder almost 16 years ago. And this was the subject of my panic attacks. I've been attack-free since 2001, thanks to Lexapro, but this news is almost guaranteed to start it up again. What kills me most of all is that I know the US leadership will spend the next four years denying that there is a problem. Clearly the problem is with these scientists, who hate our freedom.

Yeah. We'll love that freedom to bleach our bones in the desert America becomes.

What happens to outrage when it's never heard? What happens when frustration bottles up inside and is never relieved?

True, yes. But even if they're wrong, and it's twenty or thirty years down the line, it's still A Bad Thing. And I don't know if we'll ever get on the stick until it's too late.

*hugs you*

Oh, and the bumblebee's flight was figured out years ago. :)

I know. But, for all rules, there's always a bumble bee.

A lot can happen in twenty or thirty years. Making yourself nuts only ruins the now. *smoochies* Be happy. Life really is too short.

And hey -- who's to say your kid's not the one to figure this mess out and set things straight, eh?
