Hard thinks

Unless you stick to an iOS version from 2016, you won't be able to download the Blogger app for iOS. It's outdated, and Google has given up on it. Probably their team of developers had to be reshuffled and sent to new departments. Maybe it's just a waste of time updating an app for bloggers - maybe because - according to their analytics - mobile phones aren't the best medium for blogging. (So. I feel old. I'm 27.) This has given me a hard 'think' (as my boss puts it) about migrating to a new blogging platform, although I don't think it would make a difference? I'm sure the gods at Google would shut this down - but again, I'll need an entire week to figure out a Plan B.

That's all. I will end this blog post with a nihilist quote - this says a lot about the fact that our very democracy have given us a lot of freedom - including the freedom to eliminate life on earth.
...The world’s population must globally move to zero emissions across agriculture, air travel, shipping, heating homes – every aspect of our economy – and reduce our human population too. Can it be done without a collapse of civilisation? “I don’t think so,” says Hillman. “Can you see everyone in a democracy volunteering to give up flying? Can you see the majority of the population becoming vegan? Can you see the majority agreeing to restrict the size of their families?” 
The entire article, an interview with social scientist Mayer Hillman, also speaks about the futility of individual and national action on combating climate change. We've gone past the point of no return, it said, and I think it's true. I can only wish for my son's future.
