More

I was reminded by a fellow attorney that decades ago, some of us were taught that the hole in the ozone, combined with our pollution, was going to cause the next ice age.  We were not far away from being human popsicles on a refrigerated planet.

Lately, of course, the smart ones have discovered that those same numbers and data actually mean we're going to bake instead.  A whole planet of crispy critters.

And yet, that white stuff is still falling down around here.  Already, the snowfall totals for this year are breaking records.  Last year was no picnic either.

I guess I'm just not smart enough to get all that.

The world changes.
First it was all that nasty plant life breathing in healthy (to them) carbon dioxide and exhaling the poisonous (to them) oxygen that polluted the atmosphere. That change in global climate caused the emergence of life that thrived on the tree's garbage, oxygen.
Today, the Earth is still changing. Some of it is caused by us, the current dominant species on the planet.
Somewhere in a landfill is the next dominant species starting to emerge.
It'll probably be petroleum-based because of all those plastic products in the trash, don't you think?
