Hello all.

I'd like to get something absolutely serious off my chest here. Maybe I've just been awake too long again, maybe I really am genuinely terrified for the future.

Both, likely.

Simply put, the more I hear about the reports, the more data that has been collected, I can only conclude one thing: This planet is fucked. To speak of reversing climate change, global warming, is a pipe dream now. That train has left the station, folks. It left a long time ago now. The most current data suggests we have only a ten year window, twelve years at best, to prevent the worst effects of climate change. Meanwhile, anyone in a position of power, a position to actually do anything about this increasingly likely catastrophe does nothing. Nothing meaningful, anyway.

When. When is the question. When do we cross the point of no return? Soon. Very soon, in terms of a human lifespan. It won't be long before "When" has become "Now".

I fear for what kind of world my niece and nephews will inherit in their old age. What world their potential children will inherit. It doesn't look good, folks. It is a sobering thought to know that my generation, people now in their twenties and thirties, may very well be the last generation to live in a world of relative plenty and relative stability. Mind you, I say relative, for there are many places that are neither plentiful nor stable here on our Blue Planet today. But compared to what is very likely coming, it will be paradise.

Words cannot fully express the sorrow I feel for those yet to come, those who are just now children, those like myself that will live long enough to see the beginning of what may be the end for humanity. I would like to have hope, I would like to believe we can slow and, perhaps in the coming century, mitigate the worst of what our forebears have done. To some extent, and increasingly without excuse over the last century, they did not entirely understand or know. But only just, and as noted, with ever growing awareness. Yet, those of their generation either deny what is happening or cannot accomplish anything.

It is depressing. I do not entirely blame my parents generation, although they were likely the last ones that could have prevented this. Many who were, and in some cases now are, in charge thought they had more time. Many, as those who keep denying these things today, didn't believe humanity did anything wrong. But, in all honesty, anyone with a firm belief in science and fact knows we as a species are in very deep trouble. We spent the better part of a century worrying about nuclear extinction. Some of us, for the past thirty years, have been very worried about climate change with the same dread. We should all be worried about this now.

While nuclear war is still a possibility, as it always will be while we have such devices, climate change is not a possibility. It is a certainty.

It is, as the saying goes, a very serious business.

Our species needs to treat it as one, because the global climate does not care if you believe it's happening or not.

I would like to say sorry for being preachy about it, but I'm not.

I am very sorry for those who will have to live through it.

Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi needs to be executed. He is responsible for the deaths of civilians (including women and children) and the enforced disappearances of civilians (including women and children).
