    Default Gone in a Generation

    This is a beautiful, visual, moving series of glimpses into the lives of people impacted by climate change. Brew a cup of tea and prepare to spend a few minutes here.

    Across America, climate change is already disrupting lives

    The continental United States is 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it was a century ago. Seas at the coasts are nine inches higher. The damage is mounting from these fundamental changes, and Americans are living it. These are their stories.

    "The Gulf of Maine is warming faster than 99% of the world's oceans...." Wow!! That's a dramatic statement. Sounds like the lobster market is in trouble, along with everything else I guess. Honestly, most of these stories were a little hard to take for me. So, I couldn't watch any of them for long. I'm learning about how warming caused a disruption in the polar vortex, making some parts of the U.S. colder than the north pole for a few days. The existence of climate change is not debatable, IMHO.

    Never was. Some will insist on debating it anyway, or at least denying that it is man-made. Yes, I know it's hard to accept that we are in the middle of the sixth extinction and that human beings are one of the many species that will disappear. But that's the reality. Awfulize it.

    Actually the lobster market is booming right now, and no one knows exactly why. It's ironic since the president has put a tariff on lobster so the Chinese, our biggest customer, dropped Maine and chose to buy from Canada instead. So now Mainers are selling their catch to the Canadians. Don't you love it?
