Coming back from my morning run along the urban trails of Scottsdale, Arizona, I realized how proudly diminutive Tater looks compared to the land yachts frequenting this place. Ecological footprints oh boy.... I thought our rig was a little fancy but I am apparently slumming it here.
I am at the city's fairgrounds and RV park, a clean but soulless place, preparing for my morning appointment at the Mayo Clinic. Then I am off to locations rougher and quieter. The message is that home is where you make it, even if it exists within a (silver) bubble.
Just now, doing what I guess constitutes my current version of work, I again realized how I am subconsciously compelled to create a home space wherever I am. I think we all are. Interesting. I didn't stage the photo below. Everything in the picture is important. Nothing is not. Perfect.
No matter how small this habitat is, for most of humanity it would be an improvement. I just think it's cool.
Please watch this new video on climate change. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90CkXVF-Q8M
When you do so, remember that it was recommended by somebody (me) who spent his professional career working in the field of environmental science. So much of what I know I wish was not true. But it is true. The video is true. The idea that there is squabbling among scientists about this topic is not true. The scientific community argues about the details but not the fact that the phenomenon is happening.
It's like this: Science folks are lousy at marketing their knowledge, and when it comes to dealing with media, we are absolute chumps. It isn't like we got courses in anti-propaganda in graduate school. But I can assure you that we are collectively shaking our heads in disbelief at the foolishness of naysayers. It is painful to watch an entire society embarrass itself. Don't be part of that.
