Too Much of a Good Thing

July 14, 2009

I’m aware that anybody who read my last post while living in a drought region might feel I was not counting my blessings.

A holiday in France, during which the nation declared a state of National Emergency due to canicular weather has ensured I don’t head southwards in Summer either.

Water has taken on almost talismatic properties in the World media. Having seen fields of corn burned crisp dry on the Continent and apple orchards dropping their fruit to rot while the owners holidayed on the coast, I do end up wondering a bit about the husbandry skills that will have to be re-learned if we are to continue to earn the title of “sapiens”.
