Know what pisses me off about the lack of action on climate change?

When we discovered a hole in the ozone layer and that Earth could be literally rendered sterile by UV we created the Montreal Protocol and we all agreed to stop using CFC's. Now the ozone layer is coming back.

Yet there's no guts to do the same for climate change. Yes it's a harder problem but a solution has never been more urgently needed.

The sun sets
Casting its final rays
Like a #resplendent crown
Against the pink sky
Bidding farewell
To another day
And giving up space
For distant stars to shine
Before returning to its throne
When dawn breaks

Reno after some Monsoon (which is not a Reno thing) weather. Taken by a friend.

It sucks that on the internet, you can't count on anything to last forever.

Either you pay for it, in which case it will get deleted as soon as you forget to pay

or you don't pay for it, in which case it will get deleted as soon as it runs out of investor money

The earth dances
It rises and falls
In the rhythm of seasons
And the passing of ages
It crescendos in shuddering heat
It shakes and jumps, and slows
To carve hollows in the deep
With gently undulating
motion and time

Your parents and teachers lied to you, OK? Canada doesn't exist. It's a story they tell to frighten children with nightmares of hockey and free health care

We all stumble
We all #falter
We all make mistakes
We all suffer
We all break
We all stutter
We all endure
We all recover

At a certain point, feigned incompetence and active malevolence become indistinguishable from each other.

It’s now. The point is now. We’re living in it.

How many times are we going to rehash the thought that social media is making us stupid? It is not. We as a species can't control our cravings for things that are bad for us.

It's not just social media. It is our smartphones. And internet. And everything that's unhealthy. Possibly we are born stupid in that sense.

It’s like searching for things
I have not yet lost
Catching the sighs
Between each thought
Welcoming each breath
That I earlier fought
Finding the peace within
Those spaces worn thin
Remembering each breath begins
In the same place that it ends
And when I’ve run out of words
And don’t know what to say
Oh my dear sweet
Somehow you found me today

Don't believe the internet. Spraying wasps nests with soap and water only makes them as angry as they are clean.

Ontario politics 

After being missing in action along with the health minister, Premier Ford finally shows up and says “Ontario is getting the health care it needs”. Meanwhile, what is he telling residents of jurisdictions whose hospital ERs are closing down because of staff shortages?

Remember this day, Ontario, you voted for this…

Twice.

When you think about it, e-mail is the OG federated social network :) So let's learn from their many, many years of experience instead of trying to reinvent the wheel yet another time again :)
