Dawn at Dowses

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:15 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket!  On a rather cool morning, compared to the 88 degree Fahrenheit day we had yesterday, it is a COOL CHANGE.  There is nothing like a thunderstorm on the Cape at night, for it brings some electricity to the air–along with some fresh breezes, allowing for comfortable sleeping under the stars of other worlds… The heartbreaking news from the Gulf continues to astonish all of us, as we watch one of the most beautiful places on planet earth be destroyed by the endless task of searching for the world’s most efficient, and most costly, source of energy–oil.  In the days of yore, not too long ago, Nantucket was the whaling capital of the world.  Sperm and Right Whales were hunted mostly because they offered the most oil to light, heat, and cook with.  Our ancestors were in the same predicament that we find ourselves today.  Whaling was outlawed many moons ago for the cruel and vicious practice that it was and still is in Japan, and yet we find ourselves facing a much more daunting challenge today.  For we are fighting ourselves over what should be a no-brainer–stop drilling for oil in U.S. waters! Like a child learns to not touch a hot stove after he burns his hand on it, we should be looking to this disaster as a real wake up call.  We must face the fact that oil is going to begin to run out, predicted by many in the industry, independent  petroleum scientists, geologists, and physicists, between the years of 2012 and 2014…only a few years away.  And yet we designed our entire infrastructure in the United States, from the food that is delivered to our cities, to the cars we rely on to get us back and forth to work, on the continued and escalating use of fossil fuels.  What would happen if the oil suddenly ran out?  Chaos.  This “philosophical” question of energy, the growing world population and the ever increasing need for MORE energy is pushing the envelope to the point where it no longer resembles an envelope.  How can a mega-disaster of this scale not wake up everyone to the fact that we must no longer look at this problem as philosophical, but REAL.  Looking at those Pelicans made me want to cry, all covered in a black ooze as they scream out to us “intelligent” humans for help–not knowing that WE caused this horrific scene, playing itself out in the Gulf right NOW.  The lack of response from the Obama administration is troubling, for it seems that big oil has a stronger grip on the Executive than I thought.  That must be changed.  This country, if it wishes to remain a country, must take a stand against corporate corruption–not to mention stamping out the incestuous relationship regulators have with the industries they are regulating–we’re talking to you mineral management “services” (rendered).  The need for real men and women who give a damn about this country to stand up and fight is long over due.  Although misguided due to a lack of real leadership and true vision, the “tea party” movement has the right idea when it speaks to the enemy.  However, they don’t realize that the enemy, the corporation, is using them, along with “men” like James, “she’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes”, Inhofe (R-OK), (who recently shot down the amendment placed before the Senate to increase the liability on an oil spill from 75 million to at least 10 billion), to promote and cultivate their “mission statement” and real goal of world dominance–devoid of free speech, basic human rights and decent living situations without thirst, hunger or brutality. The bought and sold politicians have put this country on the fast track to hell.  Just take a good hard look at the Gulf today, not the fluff you might see on FOX NEWS, but the real stuff on Frontline or National Geographic.  It may be difficult to watch, but it will wake you up to the reality of what is truly going on–physically, mentally, fiscally, and spiritually in a country that we all cherish, Love and live in.  May GOD’s SPEED be with the men and women, turtles and dolphins, of the Gulf region…now and forever. Have a nice Thursday everybody.  Peace~ M
