Death by snow/rain/sun

I admit reading the news of people getting killed by weather events is shocking. You can live a full life and then without warning, have it all end if it snows too much (California), rain too much (New Zealand, Bangladesh) or heats up too much (Vancouver heat dome). Death by weather on obituaries. Lately the seasons give me pause rather than joy. Will I avoid the early debilitating pollen this spring? Will we have another 100 day drought or be covered in wildfire smoke in the summer? Flooding in the Fraser Valley in the fall? I feel uncertain about what come may.

Too little too late?

When I lived overseas I would return to Van for the summer, to avoid the hot humid summers where I was living. The climate was the highlight of the visit, now that I live here again, the winters are a nightmare and the glorious summers are starting to look and feel like something I experienced in the developing world, with poor air quality and a heat dome.

Stop cutting down all the trees.
No more plastic bags or plastic straws and plastic utensils have been replaced by wooden utensils, paper straws,wooden stir sticks which suck btw makes everything taste like wood. You know that shit is made out of trees.
Trees clean our air !
Biodegradable plastic would have been the way to go but alas that is not cost effective!
Ridiculous World !
Save the trees !!!!!
