I heard another silly "global warming" report today and thought about how prone we all are to group think. Any idea, repeated often enough and long enough, begins to seem plausible. There is much, much of the world I have not seen. But spending just two weeks in Alaska gave me a perspective on the millions and millions of acres that are not inhabited because the environment is just too cold and harsh. We all know that these places exist, but there is just something about seeing with your own eyes that makes you realize how complex the environment is and how silly we are to think that we control the future of the universe. Here is one of the hundreds of pictures I took during that trip.
