Just How Inconvenient is the Truth?
As for your Dragonmaster, I would suggest, as I have done at least four times previously here, that we turn our attention to a wonderful television program produced some 17 years ago: Time Warner Presents the Earth Day Special. This all-star gala celebration, coinciding with Earth Day's 20th anniversary, transformed a single soundstage at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, CA, into Everytown, USA --- where over 50 of the 1990s' greatest names in show business come together to let the world know that our Planet is at risk. The show was so profound that even Jeopardy! contributed a segment. Think about it:
Each 1% drop in ozone concentration is said to cause a 4% increase in cases of this disease.
The correct response, of course, is: What is skin cancer? The point to all this, Mortals, is this: we are faced with a series of issues which, if certain events are permitted to occur, will plunge our world into a crisis from which there may very possibly be no return, let alone a proper conclusion. When you think about it, my dear children, perhaps ol' Nostradamus was right: maybe we would indeed have to be very much on our guard if we of the Planet Earth are indeed to make it to encountering that "peace of a thousand years." It's something worth remembering.
Whether you remember it or not, your Dragonmaster, as always, would have your wisdom on this. Meaning, kiddos, that you know what to do: gimme an e-mail at either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
