In the last post I mentioned that trees appear to be bleeding sap. This is becoming prevalent, everywhere.
Shrubs everywhere show evidence of toxic atmospheric impacts. They are actually shrinking and puny, like they are starving.
This Japanese Andromeda has leaves with the discoloration and prominent veins typical of greenhouse gas poisoning.
But so many of them died, the town replaced a number of totally dead specimens with younger plants - which, oops! - are also dying.
Next, let us visit a stand of mature trees, a mix of maples and white pines. These maples looked normal a year ago - they started to turn black and now are blanketed with a green moss.
The odd green also colonizes inanimate structures like the fence.
as well as other constructs, like this set of stairs.
Alas, we have arrived at the sunset of human civilization. Very few realize it, even though it is glaringly obvious. Some are deliberately, greedily obtuse, and desire to prolong their binge as long as possible. For most people though, I think it is a failure of imagination.
