Buy land in Baton Rouge!

Fear methane-powered tsunamis on the US East Coast? Want to avoid up to 50 metres of global flooding? Why not grab the opportunities offered by Baton Rouge, with its safer elevation and access to strategically-important inland waterways?

You may not see the full benefit in your lifetime, but your descendants may thank you, sometime within the next thousand years.

At least, that's one implication of the fascinating latest post from John Michael Greer.

I love his writing, the rhythm and cadence (I realise its a device) but he is at least consistent and very persistent. Star's Reach was pretty good too.

I'm partway through Star's Reach at the moment. Yes, I think he'd do a good chautauqua (if you've read Robert Pirsig).
