Any ‘vacation’ where the President is working is a working vacation and something of which I approved in the comment to which you replied, Mr, Kiser. However, the vacations where he fished and cut wood at his ranch are less impressive to me.
Thank you for reminding us of the varioius epochs that have passed along with the life forms that existed in those time periods. There are plenty of astronomical phenomena that can, and probably will, one day destroy the planet. That’s fine. I’ll find a place with a good view if it happens before I die. What bothers me are the people who, from greed or ignorance, are making this rock less habitable with their current behaviors, behaviors that punish my children and grandchildren. It is immoral and unethical to destroy something that others need just because you personally don’t care or have a need for it. I’m glad you are so comfortable with the next great waves of extinction. I just wish the reason such extinctions will occur were beyond our control instead of something we could help fix or at least make less harmful.btw, I prefer 7-11 Columbian blend coffee to anything produced at Starbucks and I use my refill cup.My ‘hubris’ comes from the illusion my words might actually open hearts and minds. And if anything, I take a VERY long view of the future and what it could entail for a civil and respectful people.It is the actions of those who put money above our duty to our neighbors and our planet who demonstrate short sightedness.You are another whose paradigm I would like to better understand. What makes a person who writes with such intelligence show such callousness?Curiously,C.
