[glb]I think it\'s accurate to say that our species is not looking so hot right now.  Anyone else?[/glb]
The United Nations today, at their 10th anniversary of the Convention to Combat Desertification, said that "the Earth is turning into a \'desert wasteland\'...One-third of the Earth\'s surface is at risk"

i concur.

if california hadn\'t gone against nature and turned what was desert into exotic parks, lush estates, citrus groves and almond orchards, it wouldn\'t have drained so much water away from other states.  the same is true all over the planet.  the majority of our species lost its sense of balance with nature - long ago.  those who try in vain to sound the alarm as harrassed and belittled.

we\'ll get ours one day.  one damn hot day.
Peace.

you\'re amused because...?

you eat dust rather than animal and vegetable?
you like lungs so dry they bleed when you sing?
you enjoy skin so dry it cracks when you shred?

curious creature, this.
Peace.
