I guess that since it’s Cancún fortnight, the subject won’t leave my mind.
On this video, a firefighter discusses how climate change is altering the weather patterns in California; it means drier landscapes, more dry lightning and therefore more fires.
Maybe since I’ve become an uncle this year, and many of my friends are having children, I’m starting to feel guilty about not shouting about the effects of environmental damage – after all, those children are the ones who are going to have to live with our mistakes. How could I look them in the face in twenty, thirty years and say: “Yeah, I know the science said it was going to happen, but I didn’t do anything about it when I had the chance.”
So, apologies if you were hoping for a little more book talk at the moment.
