New article at my official blog, 'The Crumpled Page', on the correlation between consumerism and disasters, as well as disaster fatigue, global warming and some general all purpose ranting.
This article was spawned from thinking about that old controversial bus advertisement that went something along the lines of 'There's probably no god so stop worrying and enjoy your life'. I thought about the line from the perspective of a right-winger and what they might say in regards to climate change and came up, satirically, with 'There's probably no global warming so stop worrying and enjoy your materialism.'
Perhaps I should have broken this up into two articles. It's a little lumpy. Well, feedback is greatly appreciated!
