#142 / The Red Knot
The "Red Knot" I am actually thinking about today is the migratory bird pictured at the bottom of this column, whose existence seems to be threatened by global warming. Click right here to read an article from the May 13, 2016 edition of The New York Times, documenting the heart-rending chain of events that may be driving this amazing bird towards extinction.
The "knot" at the top of the column, an advertising logo for a brand of wine, does seem appropriate too, in its own way.
We are unraveling the web of life that sustains us all.
Let me repeat that: "That sustains us ALL."
That means you and me, too, not just the Red Knot.
