Summer too quick

I was looking forward to several weeks of daytime 60's and nighttime mid-40's. But we've been near 80 a couple of times already and tomorrow for sure.

A tropical storm is a few weeks too early in the Carolinas.

The Midwest is having tornadoes already.

The Rockies are expecting heavy snow tonight.

California is in a 4 year drought.

But there's no such thing as 'climate change', right, Republicans?

When will everyone be able to admit something is amiss in the air?

Oh, and the percentage of carbon dioxide in the air is the highest last year for, I kid you not, millions of years.

We need to take a deep breath and admit to ourselves that we are killing our planet--and then, if possible, put our heads together to figure out what, if anything, we can do right now.

(We live in the historic district of Cheshire. I met a guy in Stop and Shop pushing solar power. We have a lot of roof and live on a street that goes East to West and would have major sunshine. When I told him where we lived he shook his head. "No chance," he said, "the historic commission would never allow it."

History is more important than the Future.

Odd. Strange. Wrong.)
