The First Stage Of Grief


Yale just released some interesting data on public opinion as it relates to climate change in the United States...



So that's good news (although: Wyoming, really?). But then there's this...

 
And the coup de grĂ¢ce...





Denial ain't just a river in Egypt. 



Meanwhile, in India...



Villagers are knitting jumpers for elephants to protect them from the unusually cold conditions forecasted for the region.

Beginnings



The smell of wet leaves and loam,
decomposition and promise.
Keep still, breath carefully, be watchful
lest you startle the souls
determining where and whether to alight.
Listen as the past percolates through the future,
giving birth to this moment. 
Your skin is alive with premonition.
Your blood tastes of iron.

Darkened Cities



Imagine our urban landscapes without human light pollution. 


A beautiful novel called Exit West led me to this photography series by Thierry Cohen that does just that.


Both eerie and captivating.
