I don’t know about you all, but I’m feeling nostalgic for the days of when wearing Mom Jeans was the big scandal in Washington. (Thanks Obama!) It’s exhausting waiting for this administration to implode. Of all the changes that this administration is doing, climate change policies and EPA-gutting seem the most serious to human beings. Everything else that has been done to make America less great can be undone by the next administration (including civil rights for women, immigration, LGBTQ, education policies, banking regulations–not that they aren’t important). But there’s no fixing the long-term damage that this administration’s climate change policies can do. Personalizing this, vector borne infectious diseases such as Lyme disease and several other tick disease (including the deadly Powassan Virus) will increase as tick population is directly affected by global warming. The hundreds of thousands in this country alone, already sick with the chronic form of Lyme, have difficulty processing common environmental toxins that most people can process in a healthy body, will also have an increased in toxic burden on their health, further hampering their recovery. If only Silicon Valley could code an Ice Age.
And you thought this post was about the hyacinth in bloom, huh? April Fools. Sorry-Not-Sorry.
