Way Past What The Fuck!

Way Past What The Fuck!

 

Back in the 1920’s there was a book by a man named Alexander Woollcott called While Rome BurnsI think of that book every time I look out my bedroom window and see the brown, burned leaves of a blueberry bush that I have growing.

That happened on Friday last week.

The place is burning down and the “Crises what Crises” crowd just goes on about their business. I got an e-mail that was apparently an emergency notice and it turned out to be another pointless, tedious call to “action” by the

Citizens Climate Lobby.

Yet another of the groups designed to assuage guilt while pretending to do something or to actually care. It is so far past that and these people are just not getting it. They do not want the party to end they just don’t want the bad stuff. Imagine that, all the benefits of industrial capitalism without any of the drawbacks. They probably buy lottery tickets each Friday as well.

So I have been down a rabbit hole lately spending some quality time in the Doom-o-sphere. This is a place primarily inhabited by people who are accepting the idea that humans are not long for the earth. They offer support and news about how fast the end is approaching.

Nature, in the words of Jason Bourne, is saying, “I swear to god, if I even feel somebody behind me, there is no measure to how fast and how hard I will bring this fight to your doorstep.” She has, and she will win just don’t expect to be around to enjoy it. We have done too much and gone too far to ever go back. So strap in motherfuckers ’cause this is going to be a ride.

…and now for a few words from the doom-o-sphere
