Rust Never Sleeps


Everything changes.

ust never sleeps. Nature always seeks stasis. That may be the one thing you need to know. Oh sure, there’s the stuff we learn in school and in the world. But, knowing nature always seeks stasis might help us to understand climate change better than we do.

Some of the things that I’ve read are amazing and terribly frightening. Scientists are starting to discover things under the former icy regions in the world. They see the remains of green areas from the long past. The know that long trapped gases.

What does that mean for us?

It means that the earth is getting hotter faster than predicted.. It means that we have more extreme weather. More draughts. More wild fires. Less water. Less water means less food. See where this is headed?

By about 2050 life on earth will be life in hell.

I hate to say this, but I’m glad I’ll likely be gone. That’s pretty selfish. What about my family? Your family? Other people’s family?

There are a lot of current issues that aren’t helping. The pandemic cost hours, no, make that years. The war in Ukraine is costing time and energy. All that stuff being blown to bits and into the air can’t be good.

Then, there is the Republican Party, many of who are science deniers. There are the Democrats too. I call him Manchunck because I can’t remember how to spell his name. The guy from West Virginia who still defends coal when even the people of his state see the writing on the wall.

Maybe we should be like Ukrainians and defend ourselves. Take matters into our own hands and get working on these issues.

I dunno. I’m just thinking out loud.
