As for TT, I have no idea what to think. Global climate change is certainly happening as far as I can tell. I cringe at today's photos of the arctic ice -- or, I should say, lack of arctic ice. I suppose that, even in 2000, when I was lucky enough to be there, there was less ice present than in years past.
And I despair for the polar bear population that is struggling to survive. I do think that we forget that we share this planet with other creatures and in our greed and impatience we use up and toss aside anything that either benefits or does not interest us.
I have a friend who believes humans are a parasite on the planet. Perhaps he is right. I do have my doubts that we will ever wake up and treat this situation with the attention -- and respect -- that it deserves.
