Looks brutal outside.

Today is shaping up to be one of the hottest days of the year, if not the hottest, pushing the mercury to just a few degrees shy of 100 by the end of the day. The room I’m in has a mostly covered window that I can look out of and see that it even looks miserable outside.

The air takes on this heavy quality because of the amount of moisture present and it weighs down everything you look at. It’s a phenomenon that is only exacerbated by the haze we get from distant wildfires.

Things aren’t the same as when I was young and some of the changes are fairly alarming. The planet is changing before our eyes and I suspect the changes will grow increasingly violent as time goes on. I’m sure I won’t be around for the real shit show but it worries me for the people who might have to be.

I’m gonna continue trying to do my part to be a part of the solution and reduce my impact but I admit I am ignorant to exactly what that impact is. My consumption needs are fairly low but I live in first world comfort so I imagine that baseline is an appalling use of resources by default.

As with so many things in life, I want to do better, but the sheer amount of information kills any lasting motivation.
