Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again rather foggy, soon to be thunderous island of Nantucket! Great to be back with you on this Wednesday afternoon, the10th day of July, 2013, hoping you all had a nice fourth of July break from the action of this world we ALL share. Taking in what matters the most–family, friends, loved ones from all stripes and corners of the globe, for that is what it is REALLY all about…of course you already knew that. What can I tell you that you have not heard ad nauseum on ye ‘ole cable news shows, radio and other ’sources’ of information…? Snowden, Syria, Egypt, the various plane crashes, wild fires? Yikes! It is almost not worth repeating, for this is, after all, summer and it my humble opinion WE deserve at least a two week vacation from all of the negative to charge up our batteries to go forward into the next phase of collective development. However, I would like to plug a man whose work in the field of climate change, or global warming as it gets more to the point is unprecedented… James B. McClintock, a professor out of the University of Alabama. His work in Antarctica dates back to 1982, having studied this world’s climate from the depths of the ocean, land and air. The book is entitled, “Lost Antarctica: Adventures in a Disappearing Land”, and is an extraordinary read and I highly recommend it. He spoke to NPR this morning here in Boston on the venerable show, “On Point” and explained what is truly going on with the ever melting ice sheets on our seventh continent, changing eco-structures that will eventually affect us all. As I have said before, we can no longer act in denial of what is TRULY happening to our planet, acting like Ostriches, putting their heads in the sand. Plant a tree today or take the foot off the gas peddle, but more importantly, support politicians who embrace this upcoming crisis for not so much this generation, but for those who follow us. Have a great week ahead folks and come on down and visit US on Cape and the Islands aforementioned, we will, as always, “Leave the LIGHT on for ya!” PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
