|Paper is trees!|
Pretty straightforward and reasonable, right??
Not so fast. A colleague ridiculed me for quibbling about paper when people are struggling to cope with a “NATURAL” disaster. I responded with a quote from the IPCC linking extreme weather to climate change and a suggestion that we're negligent if we don't take responsibility for our small daily actions having an accumulative and disastrous effect elsewhere. But I'm pretty sure it's all for nought. Sigh.
But, as is often the case, a much more interesting conversation happened with my students.
