When it comes to expert insight into global climate change, we usually defer to Bette Midler, who tweets about it every day that it’s slightly warmer or cooler than it’s “supposed” to be outside.
That mantle might soon be passed to Daily Beast editor-in-chief Noah Shachtman, who can read not only ecological but civilizational collapse into a warm November afternoon.
I miss the good ol’ days when you could enjoy an unseasonably warm autumn afternoon without an impending sense of ecological and civilizational collpase.

Funny … we also have an impending sense of civilizational collapse. We had a good run … until Twitter broke us.
ya, remember when they were called “Indian summer” https://t.co/6sFimXEcEB

I miss the good old days when a nice autumn day meant time spent enjoying it instead of paranoid doomsayers huddled at their computers posting hypothetical wishdreams about the end of civilization.
The fresh air outside will do more for you than being inside writing stale posts.

Sorry, you personally can’t enjoy anything, anymore. Seems like, the rest of your life will be miserable, and uneventful. But hey, thanks for worrying for the rest of us. Go save the world Lefty.

61 degrees when I left work on the bike. I gotta be honest, I didn’t think once about impending collapse on that near perfect ride home.

We’re still like 10 degrees lower than the record, which happened 70 years ago.

Would it help if we assured you everything was going to be fine? Maybe volunteer to help people who have real problems.
