As should be clear from my last post, I think our demise by self-induced ecocide was set in motion by certain inherent traits, evolutionarily derived - thanks to random happenstance and natural selection - long before the currently popular bogeyman, Industrial Civilization, kicked it into overdrive. Still, the iDiots video is hilarious for its condemnation of our particular brand of modern collective stupidity.
With holidays and family obligations (most pleasurable obligations, I'm not complaining!) impending, I may not post very often for a while. There is no need to - everything remains the same. Just look around - trees are dying from pollution; the ecosystem is in collapse. For newcomers, the archives are there - for instance, this post with excerpts from the Royal Society's report, Ground-level ozone in the 21st century: future trends, impacts and policy implications, is as good a place to get started as any.
Instead of blogging for a while, I'll likely be posting more short updates at The Panic Room and EarthwRecked on facebook, for those who want to join groups there. Any thoughts, questions, or other comments are always welcome though - email me at witsendnj @ yahoo.
