This episode is a bit of an odd duck. I was scanning a bunch of tunes I had saved up for future episodes of Tales From The Drop Box after enjoying a fine thanksgiving day with my family. After listening to several catchy tunes in a row, I just cobbled together this episode from that playlist. Tales From The Drop Box Episode 130 is a slightly mellow affair, but perhaps it was the big meal.
This episode will also help you remain calm while you digest the full 4th National Climate Assessment Report. Truly a distressing read but at least your feet will be tapping.
My takeaway after reading the full report is that climate change is real. But you already knew that. What you also know as a fact and the report confirms that unless very aggressive action is taken to reduce and eliminate carbon emissions that life is going to change for all of us. One of those changes is that on a global basis humans are going to suffer. Many will die from famine, disease and catastrophic weather events.
Another takeaway garnered from the response to the report by Trump is that we need to eliminate impediments to change. i.e. eliminate the noise created by climate change deniers that prevent action directed to reduce the impact of these events. We also need to stop fake presidents.
