The Himalayan snow is melting. There's a giant hole in the ozone layer above Anarctica, and the atmosphere is full of the wrong kind of greenhouse gasses. The gulf stream is slowing down. The food chain is full of toxins.

We haven't forgotten Bhopal and Chernobyl either. AIDS in Africa, and TB in New York for christ's sake. Oh, and there's an asteroid on collision course with earth, but no one seems worried about that one. Maybe they're too busy being terrified of terrorists.

There doesn't seem much point in trying, does there? I give you a toast: To the future.
