No matter what it's really hard to believe we are each playing a part in the mess our world is in. We see people with money doing whatever they want. Traveling where they want when I've had to cancel 4 trips since the pandemic hit the US. They buy all the crap they want. And they get kudos and claps on the back for being so cool and even philanthropic. Then, we think, why should the little guy (at least I call myself a little guy) do all the sacrificing so they can live better?

People will jump on the bandwagon to save the earth when we are all equal.....that's never going to happen. We, or the generations after us, are just doomed and maybe that's the way it's supposed to be. The earth is constantly changing and adapting. Otherwise, we would have dinosaurs walking around making life tough for all of us.

Thank you for a thought-provoking article and a rather humorous outlook on the world ending.
