If We Tell Our Friends and They Tell Theirs...

Parker: I am going to tell all my friends about Antarctica melting. Then if they tell their friends and their friends tell more friends then maybe, just maybe the entire world will know.
Me: Then what?
Parker: Then everyone will use less energy and the ocean won't rise twenty feet.
Me: Well, I don't think you need to worry so much about it.
Parker: I'm not worried, I'm sure everyone will listen to me and tell their friends.
Pause
Parker: If it does happen, I hope I'm already dead.
Sound of my heart breaking.

What a smart little man you are raising.

On a side note, my priest just returned from vacationing in Antartica - does human involvement cause big probs down there?

If he prayed for it, maybe it was helpful.
