Higher temperatures than normal affected our trip. Now, am I sorry I had children? Not in the least. But I worry greatly about their future, both existentially and economically. Will they be able to afford a house or even rent? Will they have a job? Will they have enough fresh water? Will wars that are going to inevitably spring up over fresh water around the globe pull my kids into them? Yes, I have had times when I worry if we did the right thing having children. But I am glad we did and wouldn't undo it for the world. And I am an optimist, and I think we will get things right, but the fact remains we are driving our world into a big hurt and too many old [uck fay]ers in power are ignoring it or saying it is false, and it directly effects everyone, whether you believe it or not.
