In the ranting spirit of this blog's name, I have to say that I have very little patience for knee-jerk positions based on ignorance and intolerance.
I also find it ironic that a music culture that values free will and individualism as much as metal is so often unwilling to accept difference. To borrow the insightful words of my partner, metal's not really about doing your own thing; it's about wishing you could.
That is 'the stupid'. Now onto 'the obvious'...
Published in this week's online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences: an article stating that climate change will lead to the extinction of more species, particularly in the planet's more rare environments.
