Global Warming, or Terraforming DUN-DUN-DUUUN!!!

“”People will think of Antarctica quite rightly as a very icy place, but our work shows that parts of it are green, and are likely to be getting greener,” said Matthew Amesbury, a researcher with the University of Exeter in the UK and lead author of the study.”

You can click the image link above to read an article about global warming from the Washington Post, on a New Zealand news site. Which I can’t help but feel is weird and lazy journalism. Too fluctual a topic for my liking in any case, but you might love it.

Honestly, I just liked the picture, and it reminded me of a movie no one ever talks about, ever. THE ARRIVAL (1996) is a decent sci-fi story about planet warming that stars Charlie Sheen like you’ve probably never seen him:

Personally I don’t believe in visitors from beyond and chalk every conceivable notion of UFOs and extraterrestrial “evidence” up to nefarious humanity. Political schemers with agendas and/or individual liars with selfish urges. Aliens make for amazing literary fodder, sure, but as far as reality goes, we the people can be conniving and easily manipulated. It could be my introverted intuition (Ni) that grounds this worldly perception, all I know is this isn’t a contradiction — me loving sci-fi but not believing in aliens. Good science fiction is and always has been about the present. And.. aw shit, I should probably say something about global warming…

Be well and don’t stress, friends. That’s all I’ll say on the matter for now.
