Last Chance for Civilization

I have just been introduced to a new blog…well, new to me anyways….at Wisdom of the Trowel. There, I found an entry about an article for which I had been searching for a few days now. An opinion piece entitled, Civilization’s Last Chance, in the New York Times discusses humanity’s never-ending belief that there will always be second chances and “do-overs” when it comes to our ecological environment. Filled with metaphors, this article offers a grim look at a future headed for disaster if emissions are not limited quickly.

 I would like to send a special thank you to Lewru for posting the article along with the link. I had seen several blogs discuss the article without giving credit to Bill McKibben or the New York Times.
