We’ve all become familiar with the Repub/Fox routine of instantly responding to everything that happens while Obama is president (record snowfalls, children singing support of their president in school, American Idol inequities, etc.) as being his fault. If McCain had won, the snow wouldn’t have fallen, that guy in the […]

The usual apologies up front…never did a story before, don’t know if it’s suitable for the Planet, etc. If I’m all wet, I’m sure somebody will let me know. I’ve been following the Gulf Geyser story as intently as possible for an elderly, nonscientific, English Lit major. One of the […]

Happy Earth Day! In honor of today, I had hoped to interview an expert about The Earth but to my surprise, I was able to book none other than The Earth itself! Maybe it was my new ozone friendly haircut. Maybe it was my new recycling bin made out of […]

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. – Genesis 6 I’m an […]

I will never quite understand the emotional reaction toward wolves. There are people in the West who hate wolves. And I do mean hate. Pathological hate. It simply defies logic and reason. There are people in the Rockies who believe — with all of their heart and soul — that […]

In the disturbingly near future, Venice is submerged, Canal Street in New York City has become a real canal again, and it’s 87 degrees in December in Boston. Catastrophic global warming has moved from theory to fact.

I thought I’d tackle the very serious issue of climate change by penning a Hank Williamsy, cry-in-your-beer c&w love song about it. As for the quality, you’ve heard of The Basement Tapes, right? Well, think of this as a whatever is below the basement tape. The great musicianship should be […]

SAD is Seasonal Affective Disorder, something I don’t know that I have — but I think I do. I hate it when the sun doesn’t shine. I hate day after day of fog, of clouds, of overcast. It gets to me and wears me down. What’s your trick to beat […]

From the Washington Times: The Obama administration on Thursday proposed tighter regulations on smog to replace those imposed by President George W. Bush and, if approved, would be the most stringent in U.S. history. The Environmental Protection Agency said the changes are needed because “many believe” the Bush administration standards […]

2010 is the centennial celebration for my current favourite place in the world, Glacier National Park. I have come to find that Glacier is a place to renew, refresh, recharge and rebalance. We make a point of making a pilgrimage … and it does feel like a pilgrimage … every […]

The fires are raging over an enormous swath of the Angeles Forest north of Los Angeles and one can’t help but consider if this record breaking fire will soon lose its record. Global warming has created severe droughts throughout the world, huge fires are on the rise and there is […]
