People can’t handle the idea of everything ending, of everyone they know and love dying, of watching their loved ones die in flames or from radiation poisoning right in front of them, all because someone made a mistake at the wrong time after a bunch of imperialists decided that US planetary domination was worth rolling the dice on the life of every terrestrial organism for.

That comes as no surprise to climate change activists.
Perhaps Caitlin has trouble accepting that the future holds no happy ending.

We survived the last cold war by the skin of our teeth, entirely by sheer, dumb luck;

Some world-renown scientist, after studying the Minuteman launch system, concluded that only Providence had prevented an accidental, non-abortable, launch from mere power line fluctuations.

Then if only God has prevented nuclear war we should be grateful to Him and also be careful to not keep trying His patience with such things as systematically oppressing the poor.

Not necessarily depressing.

I don't know how people can live when they are dead inside.

The author's first name just reminded me that Caitlyn -- (yes, I know said author's first name is spelled with an "i") -- Jenner will run for governor of California. Fun times ahead for sure :)

"must be pretty depressing."

It IS depressing. And fucking maddening at the same time. I want to kill all these motherfucking neocon warmongers in Washington.
