The Pragmatist’s Reply

What does it matter when the clouds are moving in like the four horsemen of the apocalypse waiting for the thunderous roar of the tsunami that will swipe the redwoods with its raging slap against what will no longer be shore

and the temperatures of the coastal waters off Florida are breaking 100 degrees fahrenheit and bleaching the coral reefs at rates unseen in any lifetime and when Beijing is flooding like Montpelier and Phoenix is roasting like a Thanksgiving turkey and birds are disappearing and which species is not on the endangered list

and will there be anything that looks like spring ever again or autumn and are we in for a long winter that bleeds into a long summer where everything and everyone is turning into either ice or toast?
