Something to ponder ...

... Climate Change and the Poetic Imagination.

But I wonder: What is it we are supposed to do about "climate change"? Stop it? Alter its direction (on the presumption we know the direction it is going in)? Is there some optimum climate we should be aiming for? Has there ever been such a climate and, if so, when and where? If the historical record is to be believed, the 13th century seems to have been better, in terms of climate, than the 14th. But, pace Michael Mann, the 13th century may have been warmer than it is now.
