Once upon a time in, North America and Europe at least, winter has been long mythologized as the season of death and sleep, while summer was the time of idylls and Shakespeare’s romantic comedies.

If those crazy crazy loons in the scientific community and Al Gore, are to be believed instead of sensible highly-informed media pundits and our forward-thinking embryonic stem cell savior of a President, then within a generate no one will think of summer as something to look forward to. Rather winter will be seen as the season of some relief, and summer the season of death.

    Please post a blog entry when it gets published and I’ll look it up.
