Body of Evidence


Day by day the body of evidence is growing to support the oil companies claims that global warming is a myth. Yesterday there was a thin layer of ice over our little portion of the Baltic, today is -3 degrees, and all the forcasts seem to indicate that it will get even colder of the coming months. Even I, who sleeps in the winter with my window open, am cold. I can't imagine what this must be like for some of my warmer climate classmates.

I have been sitting in my room workin all day, looking out at the clear blue sky in anticipation of the sunset, for which I was planning to go for a short paddle. When I got down to the pier, I gave up my dreams when I saw the choppy waters. It would be impossible to stay dry, as cold as I was just standing there dry... I can't imagine how the original kayakers ever did it.

Next week we will all be heading up to the northern reaches of Sweden to visit some eco-villages. It will be dark, and it will be cold. What were we thinking to plan such a trip in November?
