Climate Change

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
--Robert Frost (sic)

Someone with a following must have been discussing eschatology the other day since The Inn has received another batch of hits from folks looking for something on The End of the World. I didn't really think about that when I named The Inn but we do get quite a few visitors here from time to time looking for the inside skinny on Armageddon. All of which made me think of Robert Frost's Fire and Ice, which, I suppose isn't really about fire or ice or the end of the world. But I liked it and my streams of consciousness, like the looms of the world, spin as they will.

Hence the above.
