Climate notes for September 15th 2023
The weather has cooled down a good bit, which is a relief. But still, the sense of dread of what we just experienced in September is palpable. And as kids go back to school, traffic just builds up. So many cars sitting idle on roads all over Dublin, pumping fossil fuel farts into the atmosphere. And where those emissions depart a vehicle is about head-height for a child. It's grotesque.
