Nobody knows how fast the ice will melt or how much of the ice will melt,
but if the methane hydrate factor is in fact a valid concern,
then the prospects for a desertification of all land north of Patagonia
are perhaps rather good.
And if that scenario unfolds, then the last outpost for humanity
will be whatever of the Antarctic land mass remains above water.
History of course shall continue to be written,
and the relics of ancient knowledge shall be scattered across the barren landscape.

Many forms of life will have been decimated.
Who can tell who those will be who will be the last ones?
What do you see when you walk down the street in your neighborhood?

"Le Bateau-Lavoir was a squalid block of buildings in Montmartre, Paris situated at 13 Rue Ravignan (Place Emile Goudeau). The place is famous because at the turn of the 20th century a group of outstanding artists lived and rented artistic studios there. . . ."

Just another day grading final research papers. Variations in the English language that one would be perplexed to imagine. Possibilities for meaning through series upon series of interconnected semantic associations; what more can one say? Create a well-rounded little essay from opening through close to a development that explains in so many words what exactly you are talking about.  More >

Acknowledgements and compliments.
There's a lot of writing going on out there these days.
Lots of topics, lots of issues, lots of concerns,
All very important.
Maybe I need to chip in.
Well, I'm chippin' in.
So the fire may burn just a little brighter,
for a little longer,
until the first faint grey of Dawn
whispers through the leaves overhead.  More >

I’ve just watched Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth. Global Warming has not, however, knocked on my front door just yet. Al’s hypothesis is that this global warming process can somehow be turned around, or at least be brought under the semblance of some sort of control by the humans. Well, theoretically, if you could mobilize the masses, I suppose. It’s that mobilizing of the masses bit that I suspect is just a little extraordinarily hypothetical. Like the polar bear without a glacier to stand on, we might find ourselves walking around on a piece of toast looking for a shade tree, and there isn’t going to be one. Today is today, and millions of people around the world have by now seen this movie, and down in the neighborhood, standing on the corner, we’re all waiting for the ice cream man.

As you are driving down the street this afternoon,
please pay special attention to the messages being delivered
to the shoreline of your ocean of thoughts.
Principal and Intermediate arteries of the urban labyrinth
are saturated with messages appealing for our undivided attention. Industrial society has been living in the billboard jungle for quite some time now and we are rather acclimatized to the progression of images that unfold every time we venture forth towards the street of shops with its signs beyond number.- - - - -.-
After the methane hydrates have dissolved and the South polar ice cap has melted into the ocean, the underlying continent, whatever of its mountain ranges and plateaus remain above sea level, may turn out to be the only habitable environment available for the continuation of the hominid experiment.

The Light of Day is upon us, and there is no word for time.
The Ross Ice Shelf, apparently, is on its way
to breaking free from its mother
on our way to the beginning of the Big Melt Down.  More >
