The very first thing I need to tell anyone who’s reading this blog is that I’m pretty nuts.  I dunno, maybe I get some kind of messianic thrill from imagining myself leading my family through an ecological disaster.  Maybe I fantasize about it because I’m toward the bottom of the USian socioeconomic deck, and the end of the world is a great way to reshuffle. 

 The thing is, we don’t know what’s going to happen.  Some scientists guess one way, some another; I think the extremists are right, because what the extremists were predicting 20 years ago has come to pass, in spades.

Ice caps and glaciers melting?  Check.  Surface temps rising? Check.  Sea level rising?  Check.  Dought?  Forest fires?  Endangered species?  Check.

So, no, I’m not a scientist.  But I read a lot.
