I get dizzy pretty easily. You won’t find me on one of those playground spinning circles or in just about any theme park-type ride. I won’t play drinking games that require spinning around a baseball bat in someone’s backyard. I can keep my cool through such things, but trying to stop and re-adjust to a reality of moving straight forward always makes me nauseous.

It’s another miserably hot summer. There are plenty of anecdotes and reports and opinions out about climate change, but these are just three from this week. My question is, what makes anyone think we’re going to work to deal with climate change in a necessary way? People still use Facebook despite everything—you’ll be hard-pressed to find people willing to give up gasoline.

The air is too thick to think in and walking even feels like a chore, and I just stopped moving for the first time in nearly four months and I’m looking around at America and I can’t stop feeling sick.
