a change of seasons

Spring and autumn in the northeast are things of the past and we are now left with two seasons: sweltering summers and frigid winters. No doubt this is in large part due to climate change which has robbed me of my two favorite times of the year.

Instead the summers drag on well into October and in April a howling winter wind refuses to allow spring to arrive. There may not be a change in sight and we may need to get used to this new reality in which temperatures between 10 and 20C are no longer welcome.

I vividly recall late Marches when we would dip into the double digits and all was well with the world.

One day in May the temperature will slide into the mid twenties without forewarning and signal that summer is early and here to stay; the humidity usually not far behind. I suppose as Northeasterners we should be used to it by now.

Scott Pruit are you paying attention?

  1. We are quite likely past the point of no return on climate change. Our species has been warned over and over, but we just don’t care that much. Even the leaders who profess to care don’t have the will to buck the forces that profit from killing is off.

    The saddest part is that those who have doomed the planet will love long, healthy lives, and die comfortably. Generations that took no part in their crimes will suffer immeasurably for them.
