Faithful reader Warnwood was inspired by The Twelve Doomiest Stories of 2010 to create this neat montage:

Another year, the warmest on record, and the evidence continues to mount that we are seriously fouling our own nest, permanently altering the relatively stable and mild climate conditions under which civilization arose and has flourished, and hitting the limits to growth on a finite planet - wild fluctuations of weather, catastrophic flooding, killer heat waves, melting ice sheets, destruction of forests, depletion of topsoil, acidifying oceans, "dead zones" at the mouths of our major rivers, species extinction. Bummer.

But hey, it's Christmas. We'll think about all that next year.

    A Holiday Thought...

    Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."
