It's okay, Eryiedes. I find myself getting more negative (especially during the winter months - I suffer from Seasonal Affective Dysthymic Disorder)
but then finding things that renew my innate optimism.
That said, I am frightened by Fukushima and oil spills and fracking and all that stuff. Yes, it's frightening.
I suppose I'm trying to find good news, but I have seen scientific papers about how the radiation may not be the catastrophe that it certainly
I'm a nature/animal lover, and sometimes it's simply too painful for me to look at news pieces or threads about abuses against animals,
extinction-level-events on our non-human cohabitants, mass die-offs, and other crushing atrocities. And I think we are quite 'reckless' in misusing
and abusing 'inventions' and discoveries. I'm clinging, almost desperately - to save my sanity, to the idea that the radiation is overstated, that
the doom-porn about it is sensationalist, and that the upcoming generation of scientists and mathematicians will fight like we want(ed) to.
I'm fully aware that new developments take time, investment, brilliant minds, and patience; that there are many obstacles and limitations - but that
people are clever enough to find work-arounds and fixes.
