Yet I understand that all this is cyclical, and it is a means by which the Earth constantly seeks to return to equilibrium, to a steady state. When there is extreme cold in one part of the year, somewhere later in the year there will be extreme heat. When there is too much moisture in one part of the world, there will be places that suffer drought. Extremes beget extremes. If we can maintain moderation, we will not have to cope with the consequences of excesses. Isn't this true even of human behavior? We should strive for steady state equilibrium.
