Go to xkcd and read this comic because it's reflective of the times:Regular xkcd readers will know to hover their mouse over the comic for the hidden message (is there a word for this?). This one reads:
"People aren't going to change, for better or for worse. Technology's going to be so cool. All in all, the future will be ok! Except climate, we f*$&ed that one up."
Spot on Mr. Munroe, spot on.
How's that for some inspiration from you favourite miserable-grumpy-old-woman-pessimist?
