The Greed North

A 75-word story in Time magazine last week that the world will be unlivable in 2100.  No biggie. Just a spot item, between something about Donald Trump and the new phone.

And according to yesterday's LA Times Exxon and Imperial Oil knew man-made climate change was real in 1991, and factored it in, when they thought about Arctic drilling.  How ice would affect shipping, and melting permafrost would twist the pipe.

Who will buy the oil in 2101, if all the drivers are dead?

When it turns out that what was imperative about the arctic was leaving it the fuck alone.
