I am thankful that I am not living in area with extreme weather condition like hurricane or natural disaster like wildfire or flooding, but more than a week of 100+ degrees has me worried sick. SoCal has been in a prolonged period of drought for more than 2 years and our water reserve is running low. I hope the drought doesn't mean we'll have to ration water per household soon. Already the extreme heat is causing blackouts in our neighbor city and it may only be a matter of time before my house is affected by it too. And all the articles about world's oil supply depleted in 50 years and global warming is causing all the ice to eventually melt, which will have catastrophic consequences for our planet, has really made me worried and depressed. Maybe the arrival of my first child is causing me to care about the future a lot more. I just hope that my son won't see the end of the world during his lifetime and I hope he'll live til 100 at least. So is anyone besides me worry that we won't see our planet lasting beyond our lifetime?
