"Nothing is more responsible for the good old days than a bad memory."This is an interesting talk by Steven Pinker (who reminds me a lot of Rob Lowe, or at least the characters he plays). Lots of metrics are getting better. So why don't we feel better? (Well, maybe you do. I'm not sure about myself.) Here's an interesting idea -- the breakup of the nuclear and extended family. At least in the US.
- Franklin Pierce Adams
Addressing climate change is to see that these metrics keep declining and avoid the opposite.
