Thus concludes another gloomy elegy about the Fate of the Planet by Jason Mark, editor of the environmental quarterly Earth Island Journal, as he chats with the celebrated Ann Lewis Seltzer, who knows not the joys of Coppertone and a bikini:

“I think we’re witnessing the death of nature, and that makes me so sad,” a retired attorney from Manhattan, Ann Lewis Seltzer, told me at the Forward on Climate rally. A lifelong cross-country skier who has noticed the winters are warming, she was carrying a homemade sign reading, “Save Our Seasons.”

“I love President Obama,” she said. “I hope he will be brave about what he can do without Congress.”

It’s not her hope alone. It’s the hope of the planet.
