A few huts, then a little village;
then a city, then the suburbs.
There's still a ton of empty space.
What's the difference?
The difference is the greenhouse effect.
The microbiologist doesn't know why his bugs stopped growing.
Like Topsy, who just growed, they just stopped.
And we won't know why we stopped.
