Quick! Let pop culture distract us!

As if we needed any more evidence that science is in fact religion, consider that we consistently ignore the prophets of doom…

Anyhow, this has been spreading the last couple of days. Millions of tonnes of methane at the arctic has been freed up by melting permafrost. This is considered one of those tipping points towards ever ratcheting up warming, and death for life as we know it (not death of the earth, per se, since that will adapt fine and cover over our skeletons starved in the streets of our abandoned cities.)

Oh, and this is a nice review of nine years of Labour government. Now seems as good a time as any to note: do we really trust John Key to navigate us through the storms to come? Because the conditions at sea are going to swamp the ideology of the captain. Total global recession, and massive global climate shift. This requires vision, character, and a basic connection to reality. None of this is noticeably present in Key.

    Speaking of the distractions of pop culture, you should see Wall-E. Its message probably won’t get through to everyone, but at least it tries.
