Environmental Doomsaying

I know what you are going to tell me: Oh, you environmentalists are such doomsayers. Everything is always getting worse, society is always about to collapse.

Still, today is giving me a very bad premonition. It is really cold here today—-like, "why didn’t you bring your parka?" cold. And I have this sinking feeling that it is going to keep getting colder around here, for the next several months. Oh, there might be a reprieve here and there, but, for the most part, Canton, New York is going to get colder and colder, and won’t start getting warm again until April. During that time, people won’t go outside as much, you won’t be able to bike to school most days, heating your home will cost a lot of money, and things are just generally going to suck.

I know, environmental doomsaying. But I’m saying it. Winter is coming. Ugh.
