Somewhere along the line, seasonal anomalies became global warming. I think there’s some truth in climate change but what some have been using as markers for it is a bit absurd, at least in the media.
I watched it go from 500 yrs in the future, to 250 yrs in the future, to 100 yrs in the future, to 50 yrs in the future, to 25 years in the future to… past 7 months within my lifetime. Lots of name changes too.
That’s not to say it “might not be so”, and honestly, I don’t have a problem with new recycling programs and stuff… but the excitement can wear thin after a while. I suppose I’ll play the fiddle while the ship sinks, but doom ‘n gloom stuff never impressed me, since we survived the inevitable war between Russia and USA. When you grow up with doom ‘n gloom in the news every day, after a while, you realize you’re probably going to die a normal age.
