Today is Earth Day.
Or so I am told.
This is the day when we all get together and …….. Well. I’m not quite sure what we’re supposed to do?
I had a look around the Interwebs and maybe discover what was going on. Just like everything else though we seem to have gone overboard and turned it into a weekend thing. I remember when Paddy’s Day was just a day and now it’s a whole fucking week.
So yesterday people celebrated by chucking plastic around their supermarkets? It’s a novel idea I suppose. Today it’s all about cleaning canals and listening to birds and stuff like that.
My prediction is that when people meet up they will be fired with enthusiasm and make all sorts or resolutions to chuck away more plastic, listen to more birds and to scrub every canal and river to within an inch of it’s life.
By tomorrow it will all be forgotten.
You see, tomorrow is the Rapture. Yes – the end or the world has arrived. This is it. No more worrying about plastic in the sea, or Warble Gloaming or whatever your cause is.
Time to pack your bags and kiss your ass goodbye?
