Climate Change: Driving its victims insane like Chinese water torture.

Hampton Beach: 2/23/17
CC Jean Stimmell
70 degrees at Hampton Beach, NH on February 23th

For the middle of winter it is totally unnerving:
Fog rising from the frigid water into the tropical air
casting a surreal spell over the milling beach walkers

Reminds me of the post-apocalyptic novel, On the Beach,
about people walking on the beach, waiting to die,
from soon to arrive radiation from a  nuclear bomb

Alas, this time the climate change bomb is for real,
just as devastating, but exquisitely slow moving:
Slowly driving its victims insane like Chinese water torture.
