The first few seconds of this video from Norway are shocking. Does anyone but me not understand that coniferous trees should be densely covered in green needles, not transparent? The trunk looks just like the trunks in New Jersey, where the bark is falling off, exposing raw, red wood.
How can people not see this? The world has gone insane - it is as though we are all living like Norman Bates in Psycho, our mummified mother propped up in the rocking chair, while we continue talking to her, pretending she is still alive.
