More stuff that politicians can't do
Ten thousand dead, current estimates, and millions homeless and without clean drinking water and food.
Over at the UN, the Philippine's representative implores politicians to end the 'climate madness'.
Alas, neither politicians nor the rest of us ordinary humans are much good at changing the weather let alone the climate. It has been this way for five billion years.
It's like suggesting we equip ourselves with dinner forks to push back ocean waves or use tennis rackets to reduce wind.
The real madness, which has persisted since recorded time, is the inability of humans to predict the future. Humans have an especially poor strike rate with predicting Armageddons, and yet so many persist, ever hopeful that one or other Armageddon will arrive - to prove them right.
