I recently wrote the above title phrase in a comment on Hooky Beach‘s blog, and it has stuck with me ever since.

The news is full of “unusually severe weather” stories these days. Excessive rain. Excessive heat. Tornadoes out of season.

A few years ago, I read T. Coraghessan Boyle’s book “A Friend of the Earth” (2000). I am impressed by how accurately he predicted our current climate situation. It’s a very believable book; I highly recommend it. An entertaining read, along with the element of global warming.

I’m not much in the mood to “rant”, after all. I’ll settle for this book plug for now. Plenty of time to rant later.
