Times Are Changing

Once upon a time people would say of an effective con artist that they “could sell ice to Eskimos.” They may not be buying ice, but Reuters reports that Inuits need cash for freezers in warming Arctic.

I looked at homesteading in Alaska, and most of the people who did it mentioned that you didn’t need a refrigerator, you just dug a hole in the permafrost. Now the permafrost is melting. Imagine the effect of bedrock turning to mush, because there are a lot of buildings in the interior that are set on the permafrost, without a formal foundation.

The way people are dithering in the US, I wouldn’t advise anyone buying property in the four southern-most counties of Florida, as there is a very definite chance that they will be under water in fifty years.
