The endless summer

I spent this morning bicycling a long stretch of the Champlain Bikeway between the Town of Colchester and the waterfront in the City of Burlington. The high temp for the day was around 75F, a big change from recent days of higher temps and sticky humidity, which combined sparked memories in me of the two years Monica and I lived in central Georgia (Robins Air  Force Base) more than three decades ago. In any case, as this c0lumn makes clear, our planet’s climate is becoming harsher toward many of us, like the farmers of the Southern Great Plains who have given up their corn crops due to drought. Would Mitt Romneydo anything at all? Hah, hah. And what happened to President Obama’s campaign promise to take on the global warming thing and do something?
