The concept of shifting baselines as it relates to climate change has been coming up in my timelines lately. It reminds me of the huge snow banks we used to get when I was little, so high that we couldn’t see across the street. Kids’ baseline is much different today than what my baseline was, and same for my baseline versus that of my parents. And nobody panics because it’s so gradual.
I hate Facebook. I’m not even on it. But I despair at the harm they do to society and I despise that they take advantage of my family and friends who are on it.
If I was forced at gun point to choose a job between Facebook and Amazon, I would chose Amazon hands down. I stay away from Amazon like the plague, but that’s just consumerism.
