local optimization

another beautiful sunny day

so, I was talking to a colleague, and he mentioned that he likes it warm and sunny, selfish as that may be

this is one of these locally optimal, globally catastrophic issues: on any given day it really is nicer for most people for it to be warm and sunny, but if it were warm and sunny every day, we'd all die.

At least around here, the ecology, farming and water systems are just not set up for prolonged absences of rain.

Rain is forecast for thursday. Hah.

Then everything would become golden like here in Northern California. The grass has already started to brown since it hasn't rained in a month. Another 4 months of dry season to go, and then it's job application season!
