Waterworld


I have read several articles lately that show what will happen in states like Florida and California as sea level continues to rise. Scientists believe that the effects will be extreme. I mentioned this at coffee the other day and Joel said that the sea level has not risen.

Joel is wrong.

I know that I am a pessimist but as smart and capable as hominids like to think they are, I wouldn't bet a nickel on our long-term chances in this regard. Glad my ranch is a comfortable distance from the coast.

Keep doubling down on stupid, humans, perhaps Musk and Bezos will put you up on a new planet to destroy when you are done with this one. And you can always shrug your shoulders and say that it was god's will.
