Dear future readers,

You must be somewhat amused to learn of this strange cult of climate change that had so many people in its grip back in the early 21st century. I post just to testify that not everyone was sucked into the craziness. By your time I imagine you have much more advanced sources of energy, maybe fusion power, maybe something else. I’m also pretty sure that your world will be just fine and won’t have succumbed to some of the doomsday scenarios the loonies of our own age predict. By the time you read this, I may well be dead, but I wish you all well for a bright future.
