I actually had time to read the NYT for a few minutes this a.m.
And I was surprised and dismayed to find that the American public remains largely oblivious to the growing threat of weather-changing space junk:
A big majority, 75 percent, said recent weather had been stranger than usual, an increase of almost 10 percentage points from 1997. Of those who said the weather had turned weird, 43 percent attributed it to global warming and 15 percent to pollution or other environmental damage. Four percent cited the coming end of the world or biblical prophecy, and 2 percent blamed space junk.
(The Recent Arrivals column should explain the break in blogging. But we are slowly re-emerging....)
