climate change, depression, fluff, and Mardi Gras

Y’all, it’s Mardi Gras weekend. That means I’m not getting a whole lot of reading done, since I’m too busy catching beads and dancing in the street. I’ll dutifully record whatever short-form stuff I do get to read here, though. (Just add in a lot of menus, parade floats, etc. in your imagination).

Zing Tsjeng, The climate change paper so depressing it’s sending people to therapy

So fair warning, I didn’t read the entire article here. It’s one of those articles about the real article (called Deep Adaptation: A Map for Navigating Climate Tragedy) that’s mostly fluff and doesn’t really say much beyond what the original article says.
