And give ourselves a chance.

This may be Wednesday, but it feels overwhelmingly like a Monday and I am not a fan.

The "environment" isn't just some abstract that you can ignore. The ongoing climate disaster is coming to you right now. Your cost of living is going up now. Your neighbors are starving now.
