We should maintain that if an interpretation of any word in any religion leads to disharmony and does not positively further the welfare of the many, then such an interpretation is to be regarded as wrong; that is, against the will of God, or as the working of Satan or Mara.

How Hot Can It Get?

Assuming global warming trends continue through the rest of the century, how hot will it be in 2100?  The website, Aol Travel did some research and found out what it will be like to visit "northern" cities such as NYC, Chicago, and Seattle as well as other American cities in 89 years.  Check out their map.  For New York folks, visiting the Big Apple is going to "feel like" Las Vegas, Nevada.  That would seem to mean that snow falls measured in feet in places like Lewis County, NY, will be a thing of the long-ago ("Do you remember when...?") past.  It is hard to imagine what the real Las Vegas will be like, let alone cities that sit on or near the equator.  Scary.
