CNN.com – Swiss wrap glacier to slow ice melt – May 10, 2005

put a blanket on it! slow that melting. isn’t it great all these environmental-types are doing so much to save the planet (don’t send the hate mail, i’m all for saving the planet), but you know, the planet has a finite life span. the sun will indeed supernova at some point (however far in the future), and the earth will be gone. so the question is one like a carpe diem versus save for the future (somewhere in between). do you just live it up while you got it? or work to save it for an uncertain future (though admittedly earth isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, unless like in some hitchhiker’s guide move there is really some plan to destroy the earth in an eminent domain type move to make a highway or something)?
