Global Warming Metaphor Watch: Paul McCartney’s Idea

Well, actually Paul’s talking about the record companies, but you’ll see what I mean:

My record producer [David Kahne] said the major record labels these days are like dinosaurs sitting around discussing the asteroid. They know it’s going to hit. They don’t know when, they don’t know where it’s coming from. But it’s sort of hit already. With iTunes, and all of that.

Easy to replace "record labels" with "humans" and describe our reaction to climate change, isn’t it? I can almost see the Calvin and Hobbes version, right now. Methinks Paul always was underrated as a wit…

From a nice LATimes story on his new record. Complete with a picture that makes him look more twenty-four than sixty-five…
