While we are in the throes of packing around here, I urge parents to read the Los Angeles Times’ series on Earth’s Altered Oceans written by Kenneth R. Weiss. I suspect many will find the stories absolutely horrifying.
As parents, we face enough issues – financial, health, safety, housing and education – to worry about. But what if we navigate our children successfully into a doomed world? What if the oceans revert back to their ancient past, filled with primordial goo, toxin-producing algae and enormous schools of jellyfish? What if clear-blue waters and dolphins become a thing of the past?
Maybe you will feel this series is overwrought. Maybe it is; maybe it isn’t. Please read it and see what you think.
