I’m beginning to think that I should stop reading news or listening to the radio – the news is so damn depressing. The latest I heard today – 150 billion (yes billion) annually in illegal wild animal and stolen forestry trade. Thirty percent of the paper we buy is from illegal sources – and sushi and goddess knows what else. And what is this doing? – killing the environment. Apparently forty percent of the carbon dioxide in the air comes from burning forests illegally.
So depressing. And then there’s the animals killed for tusks or trophies or for eating – all illegally.
There are too many people on this planet. And we are killing it.
The only way to keep my sanity is to get into the alpine.
And then, of course, I can read about politics and Trump and – well, I don’t think I have to enumerate.
It’s getting harder and harder to keep my chin up.
I will and I do. But sometimes it ain’t easy.
