Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the windy, now sunny island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this 31st day of January, 2013, a blustery one out there on the ocean, if you are a seafaring kind of gal or guy, as we were barraged with a ton of rain overnight, bringing this yo-yo weather pattern full circle as it were, for only a few days ago, this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age was in the single digits with lots of snow and ice for all… Last night on “The Daily Show, with John Stewart”, Happy New Year by the way, as well as Mr. S. Colbert of “The Colbert Report”, Al Gore made an appearance that was not only striking, but actually had a point. His former station, Current TV, a station this reporter owes a whole bunch, not to mention the great Keith Olbermann who anchored that great news show, “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann” on same said station, was sold to some folks in Qatar, a 24 hours news station called Al Jazeera. The point that the former Vice President of the United States of America was making was this–they did not have the deep pockets to expose GLOBAL WARMING for what it is–REALITY! It is the most pressing issue of OUR ‘time’ on this only home WE all have for the moment and it is critical that WE tackle it as a global community, hopefully saving at least a part of God’s GREEN earth for future generations. I salute his new book, “The Future”, and implore you to go and buy yourself a copy today. He is a great steward of not only this country, but many who will be seeing the shifts of rising tides, stronger storms, more severe droughts, wild fires and more, for there is no doubt that mankind’s continued spewing of Carbon Dioxide and other pollutants into said atmosphere is the culprit for OUR predicament as a species. Spewing it as, and I quote the former President, ooops, I meant Vice President, “…if it were an open sewer” and of course this is the reason for storms such as “Sandy” that ravaged the east coast only a few months ago, not to mention countless days of drought this past summer and severe tornadoes across much of the heartland. Let US take our democracy back from special interest groups whose only goal, i.e. companies such as Exxon-Mobile, is to make more money, not create a better place for our children and grandchildren to live in. Have a wonderful day folks and GOOD LUCK to Chuck Hagel, who is being ‘deposed’ by the Senate even as we speak, a nominee to become our next Secretary of Defense, a man who came from the grunts of the Vietnam War, became Senator and has the look of honesty on his face–a rare trait in the republican party these days. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
