Out of the Blue

Through process of elimination, we have determined pretty clearly that the Gunnar-man's indoor peeing episodes are not medical and are some sort of message. Yesterday he left a small puddle as I had to run a half-hour errand immediately after a walk, and it basically seems like he's showing his displeasure at being left behind, though maybe he's just claiming territory he feels we've abandoned. This has me wondering if he needs to be re-acquainted with crate training, which seems like the obvious solution to this, except for my twitch-inducing memory of just how horribly it went when we tried to crate him as a puppy, as he threw himself against the door for hours until we simply gave up (and yes, that may be part of how we ended up in this predicament). What can I say? He's always been amusing, and now he's a pisser.

I don't really get why people are so surprised that having 700+ million gas-burning cars, hundreds of millions of heated homes, an untold number of factories, hundreds of thousands of acres of pavement, heavy deforestation, etc. might possibly upset/change things on a planetary scale.

I don't really get how people think that the giant billion-year old fusion reaction that we are stuck in orbit around couldn't have far more intense effects on our climate than our surface activity does.

For the record, CO2 isn't brown and there hasn't been acid rain in the USA for decades. I'm all for the equal protection of health and property but giving any government absolute power to regulate CO2 is to give them absolute power over EVERYTHING THAT BREATHES.

I'll continue to contemplate this next time I run 4 miles or bike 12 in smoggy Las Vegas yet seem to feel just fine.
