Meanwhile, the Amazon continues to burn but the news is already fading. Not that it ever matched the tragedy’s significance to the planet in the first place. But if carbon dioxide is bad, wait for what methane can do to our air.

(Well, Laozi said:  “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”  If you don’t get going, you can’t possibly get ahead.  Even my horoscope today said:  You’ll look at the distance ahead and, as impossible as it seems, you’ve already come really far.  So, get going . . . and persevere guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
