It also happens to be that time of year again. Yup. January 24. It's an important day in the life of The MinusCar Project.
It was a year ago today that I read this article in the morning - "Jan. 24 called worst day of the year. British psychologist calculates ‘most depressing day’" Ironically I think that calculation factors in winter weather which hadn't been exactly clear and present for a couple years now.
Later that afternoon I read this article - "Climate Change: Countdown to Global Catastrophe. Report warns point of no return may be reached in 10 years, leading to droughts, agricultural failure and water shortages" - which turned my world upside down...and left it there.
January 24 this year I found myself reading something generally a little more hopeful. It's Al Gore's January 15 speech where he is sharply critical of the executive branch. But then there was this nugget -
"And today one of the leading scientific experts on global warming in NASA has been ordered not to talk to members of the press and to keep a careful log of everyone he meets with so that the Executive Branch can monitor and control his discussions of global warming."So, yes. It's a tough time. Nothing a little sunshine won't fix, eh? So tomorrow, I'm going to get back on my bike and enjoy as best I can our 37th day in a row of above normal temperature.
Why don't you join me? Bike to work if you haven't lately.
