COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

“Planet at its hottest in 115,000 years thanks to climate change, experts say’

Well, I know that it wasn’t intended, but I find the statement extremely revealing.

115,000 years is rather a drop in the bucket of time.

In geological time, it’s likely not so much as the first thin skin of a great, huge, fat onion.

Human life goes back about 500,000 years.

Our direct and indirect ancestors go back several million years.

Life itself may have started as long ago as 3 billion years.

And the earth is approaching its five billionth birthday slowly.
