I’ve just been hauling large tree limbs downed by the recent ice storm. That’s really hard work. It took about all the strength and endurance I had.
I think about how much we owe to fossil fuels, to do our heavy lifting, to transport us from place to place, even for supplying the lubricants that make our manual labor take less effort.
So thanks to all you dinosaurs and pre-historic plants who gave your lives to make mine easier.
