  2. "A World of Dying Trees"

    Sounds like the name of a new blog with many years of material. Well maybe not that many years.

  4. Thanks, Gail.
    These are powerful images, of a reality made more horrible with each passing day of carbon-burning-as-usual-climate-change. And subject never makes the front page of news papers, nor was the subject broached during the 2012 imbecilic US presidential debates.
    Burned dead trees = burned dead birds, bees, animals AND THEIR HABITAT.

  5. Hello Gail - Just discovered your blog. I'm sorry it took me so long to find it. It suits my "Doomer" mentality to a tea. My father asked me over the Holidays "Why do you have to focus on the negative? Why can't you see the good in life?" Unable to not reply I retorted: "I would Pop but I think we've managed to murder every last part of life or the living planet." A fight ensued and we eventually retired to our respective corners.

    My father only read two books (other than technical manuals) in his life: "The Detective" (for the dirty parts) and "How to Win Friends & Influence People". The second one became the focus of his life through which he transformed himself into a gifted salesman and made a small fortune selling aluminum awnings in Las Vegas during the 60's & 70's. He loved money above all and what it could do for him and his family. He drove a new car every couple of years. We were the first family in the neighborhood to have a color TV. We had an in-ground pool (which made me immensely popular about the middle of July). Now half a century later the unforeseen has come into view. Thanks!

  6. Welcome Mike!

    My dad once accused me of "wanting" collapse to happen - I guess because I sort of obsessed! Having been through Paul Chefurka's 5 stages and maybe beyond, I was really horrified. All those nights I sat, grieving and sobbing, facing the certitude that everything I care about is going to end, that my children will almost certainly NOT die peacefully, or of old age...and he thought this is something I want?

    Sigh.
