Woeful Wednesday

Guy McPherson is a professor emeritus of evolutionary biology, natural resources and ecology at the University of Arizona, and has been a climate change expert for 30 years. He has also become a controversial figure, due to the fact that he does not shy away from talking about the possibility of near-term human extinction.

While McPherson’s perspective might sound like the stuff of science fiction, there is historical precedent for his predictions. Fifty-five million years ago, a 5-degree Celsius rise in average global temperatures seems to have occurred in just 13 years, according to a study published in the October 2013 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. A report in the August 2013 issue of Science revealed that in the near term, earth’s climate will change 10 times faster than during any other moment in the last 65 million years.

    Jill is having her place sprayed for mosquitoes tomorrow. Looks like we’re going to hire them, too. While I hate the thought of the poison on everything, killing the good bugs, I changed my mind when I spotted a big carpenter ant on the wall in the kitchen, up near the ceiling. I am pretty damn sick of having those ants in this house! If it takes them out, too, well then that’s a plus. If I’m cooking I don’t dare leave the kitchen, take my eyes off the counter and stove. When I make my three salads, I keep at it until they’re done. Hate the thought of an ant crawling into my salad, me not noticing and eating him that night! BLECH!!!

    Cool today and overcast. Can’t go outside because of the mosquitoes, no sun to chase them away. I walked down to the mailbox around 6:00 p.m. and oy vey! Had to keep swinging my arms around while trying to get the mail out and to put some mail in. Can’t go near the road, that’s for sure. It was HORRIBLE

    Tomorrow my friend Diane arrives around 2:00 p.m. I think she’s staying until Tuesday. I have everything done, everything ready. I guess I should dust this room, it REALLY needs it and if she brings her laptop we’ll be in here quite a bit. Friends who computer together, stay together, lol.
