Cost of electricity

Until major corporations and governments get serious about fixing climate change, we--here in Zihua--at least have a good perch from which to watch the world burn, and that, I'm afraid, is as good as it's gonna get.

Be ye joyful ... even after you have considered all the facts.

I disagree that all is hopeless. We will confront the climate change crisis and adapt, if only because it will be in our economic interests as well as our long-term well being. What frightens me is the political aspect. There is a sizable portion of the population for which climate change has become a political issue and a way to drive a wedge between competing groups. This is very scary.

Anything that you can do as an individual is not wasted, including contacting your erected representatives and letting them know how important this issue is to you.

(My apologies. This sounds like a public service advertisement. However, studies have shown that optimistic people are happier, wealthier, and live longer. Of course, the pessimists say that the optimists are just deluding themselves.)
