“You better travel to Alaska while you can still see the glaciers. Climate Change is destroying them.”
That is what I heard from someone after she returned from an Alaskan excursion.
Air travel, with its voracious appetite for fossil fuel, contributes to climate change. I prefer the term People/Machine/Stuff (PMS) Disaster.
Am I missing the point? Why see the glaciers when the act of seeing them begins to destroy them? Dramatic increases in the human population, the machine population, and the overproduction of stuff in general got us into this environmental mess. Perhaps only dramatic decreases will stop the glaciers from melting.
But imagine the misery inflicted by a systematic decrease in people, machines, and stuff?
Do nothing = pain. Do something = pain. We are living “Catch-22.”
