Editorial Comment

A question of arrogance. Global warming is to writers as Bill Clinton was to late-night comedians. Here’s my take on how it works. On the mythical Anti-Earth – that’s the planet that orbits opposite Earth on the other side of the Sun, so it can never be seen – everything is the opposite from what it is here, except human nature. On Anti-Earth, the problem is that a new ice age is approaching. Almost all of the glaciers there have been growing for the past century or so, and the trend seems to be accelerating. There are pictures showing where the glaciers were a century ago, and video showing buildings slowly being crushed by the advancing ice. There are records of town meetings, where the subject was how soon and how far the town should be relocated, and these meetings continue to the present day.
