No Pretty Drift Ice

The aesthetics of climate change...

Last fall we went to Mass Moca. Knowing that accomodations are impossible during leaf season, we waited until November. Leaves hadn't turned yet and the locals were buggin'. Apparently the worry is that there would be no reds that year.

Started reading Tim Flannery's The Weather Makers last night, and boy is he anxious. Pre-coffee thoughts: anxiety is a powerful motivator, but I must say that it has never motivated me to do anything smart. Is Flannery's anxiety helpful?
