Tell It To The Frogs? #Fridays4Future #ClimateStrikeOnline

One of the big questions in the climate change debate: Are humans any smarter than frogs in a pot? If you put a frog in a pot and slowly turn up the heat, it won’t jump out. Instead, it will enjoy the nice warm bath until it is cooked to death. We humans seem to be doing pretty much the same thing.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I like your writing, humor, and environmental concerns.
    If you’re interested, I’m an environmental scientist who writes about science and nature in a mostly humorous vein. You can find my website at
    Plus I have a frog photo on my homepage you might want to see.

      You are possibly the funniest human on the planet. And your frog is the funniest frog. I wish I could follow your blog by email. I see you have a way to follow by Reader, but I don’t use the Reader because. Just because. Please comment again; I don’t want to forget to look at your site often.

        Thank you. That was about the greatest compliment I’ve ever gotten.
        I only ended my holdout of the 21st century recently, so tecno-dinosaur that I am, what I don’t understand about my own website and how better to reach people could fill a book.

    -sigh- when it comes to this pandemic, we’re even worse than frogs. We’re jumping into the pot of our own accord. :/
