Interesting way to look at the consequences of climate change:
Australia is suffering through its worst dry spell in a millennium. The outback has turned into a dust bowl, crops are dying off at fantastic rates, cities are rationing water, coral reefs are dying, and the agricultural base is evaporating.But what really intrigues Glenn Albrecht — a philosopher by training — is how his fellow Australians are reacting.
They’re getting sad.
