The time has come.

In December, 2009 I was coming home from an Alaskan disaster deployment and rode with another couple to their home before being taken south to Mt. Angel in the airport shuttle. The couple asked me what I did (I always cringed since FEMA was not popular, never has been). But they asked where I'd been and when I told them they asked how is Alaska? I answered, "Alaska is melting".

If this article is true and we've tipped past the no return point, we should begin to see articles on the Tundra dying, the ecological system of Alaska (and all our northern hemisphere). Once this begins the ozone layer will only grow bigger and there is no way to stop it, nor mend it.

As a species we're sure in a goddamned hurry to destroy ourselves and everything else on the planet. Now what's this about the sanctity of human life? I don't get it.

I have heard about that "sanctity of human life" thing. One of those Christian slogans, right? Coming from those same Christians who somehow never clearly added that obviously, "human" only applied to those of their own beliefs...?

This planet has survived quite a lot. It might just make it. With or without its heavy load of two-legged vermin.

Not sure it's so much a Christian slogan, I've heard it from the medical industry.

Well I would probably get annoyed if I were the only one left on the planet. ;] We've really done it now. For having free will and all we, the thinking ones, have managed our sanctity like rabid dogs.

Quite - the "medical industry" is using it as well. To avoid having to give up on terminal patients before squeezing a few more months on expensive "life support" out of them :-p.

And yes, you can say that again...

As for being the only one left: M. and I had decided we'd go sit on the roof and enjoy the show, back when Mr. Reagan's "war theatre" games were on the horizon. Everything but getting stuck in a mass shelter with - rabid dogs ;-)?
