It’s 9 pm, mid-February in the Basque Country. It is supposed to be winter. Cold. However, it’s 16 degrees celsius, and the breeze I can feel on my face is warm and dry. Feels like a June evening. And this is not just today; I think that the weather is changing.
James Lovelock says in The Revenge of Gaia that an ecological catastrophe will happen within this century. Well, perhaps my generation will live enough as to witness it. Perhaps I will live the greatest weather change of documented history. We will be remembered as the people who lived the Big Global Warming. We will be the Warming Generation.
We are Generation W.
