Encounters with myself … others … Life !
“Your door-step you said ? Forget it. We are not moving ....”
“Ok .. no protests from me. You really are a beautiful specimen. And the heat is almost unbearable so you stay … I’ll just park next door 🙂 Let me first get a picture of you though for the Mundane Monday community. Done. Now I’ll just wait here till you are ready to move .”
Colombo has been experiencing a heat wave. The animals are the hardest hit … as are those in drought stricken lands of Asia where humans too are succumbing to the heat.
One of the big questions in the climate change debate: Are humans any smarter than frogs in a pot? If you put a frog in a pot and slowly turn up the heat, it won’t jump out. Instead, it will enjoy the nice warm bath until it is cooked to death. We humans seem to be doing pretty much the same thing – Jeff Goodell
Grumbling at the heat … but doing nothing to minimise our carbon footprint? Guilty as charged.
