dismal news from the front

... the front, that place in Time, high enough
up, that you can see what's coming

... the view is not good

... climate change is soon going to mean the
displacement or death of billions of people

... the reports about polar ice and glacier
melting is very alarming, especially since
the media tries to underestimate the time
it will take

... it used to be "end of the next century",
now it's 2050, where Miami may well be under
water, and the corn belt a desert

... the key is that we have reached the
tipping point, where the frozen methane-hydrate
deep in the ocean, and in the nothern permafrost,
will start releasing it's killer payload of
greenhouse gasses

... our rat-race lifestyle is going to
cause the demise of civilization, but
we have done it to ourselves, with our
rat race pre-occupation with making money
and profits

... I vote it's time the rat-race is slowed down,
before it kills us all
