Oh, I know.
One minute itâ€™s the Gulf oil spill and the next itâ€™s toxic waste flooding the Danube. Turn on the evening news and thereâ€™s a Tsunami in Indonesia followed by a stern warning from scientists that we are annihilating species at “100 to 1000 times the historic rate.” Our education system is in the dumps, terrorists are becoming sophisticated recruiters and milk is either good or bad for you depending on the day of the week. We are getting fatter, burning too much fossil fuel and autism, breast cancer, depression and new strains of flu are on the rise.
Wait a minute. I havenâ€™t even touched runaway government debt or the fact that China is buying up mineral rights in Africa faster than we can print money.
Is it any wonder that I have “crises-fatigue.”
