There are many hot issues in our world today. Examples include food and water security, racial discrimination, pandemic viruses, biotechnology risks, weapons of mass destruction, and more.
Hot issues invite for hot discussions. There is not only global warmth of the environment but also in the heated discussions that lead to the global warming of human interrelations.
The question that comes to my mind is the scientific findings that global rising warmth is causing our brains to shrink.
Similarly, I ask if hot issues shrink our minds to lose their ability to think of expansive solutions to the heated global issues.
Higher temperatures lead to drier environments. Are our minds becoming drier of new solutions because of heated global competition and negotiations?
Are our minds being fractured by heat as clay behaves when dried?
Are our minds losing their elasticity and behaving like rubber compounds, which shrink as they warm up?
Is this shrinking of minds a global crisis that warrants global attention so that we find ways to sponge our heat before entering into discussions of hot crisis?
Are heated discussions and conflicts causing a greenhouse effect on us as global warming does?
