Almost 40 years ago, when I was still fairly young and generally optimistic, a friend of mine was commenting on some human behaviour and stated. "Oh I firmly believe there would be a line of people queued up to cut down the Last Tree on Earth". My view now? To quote Bob Dylan "It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there" Some people's children, eh?

Here's a story from today's local rag which seems germane to this thread. It's about real climate change stuff happening on the ground right now.

I was talking to Second Daughter, who lives in Montana. She told me of how she and a friend made a point of vising Glacier National Park recently. They wanted to go while it still has glaciers . . . .
