Early morning light…

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the soon to be snowy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Monday morning, the 28th day of January, 2013, a much warmer day than the past few weeks have been, with temperatures expected to reach the freezing mark in quite some ‘time’…  Hope all is well with you and yours as WE delve back into the issues surrounding this great nation and indeed the world.  With 80 percent of Americans now understanding the FACT that global warming is quite real, ‘just ask the folks in the Arctic, they’ll tell ya’, it may be time to revisit this most important global issue, as the United States takes a back seat to the problem with countries such as Sweden, Finland, France and even the U.K. making strides to curb our appeal for fossil fuels that are emitting the carbon dioxide making this world WE ALL inhabit a much more dangerous place to live in.  Take for example the XL Keystone pipeline, slated to bring that nasty tar sand from Canada down through our heartland and lock US into a dirty energy future for generations to come, all while enriching the already richer than God oil and gas companies who are also raping and pillaging our earth via the fricking fracking hydraulic exercise of breaking apart shale deep within the earth’s crust while poisoning our water, our air and our people, soon to be coming to 18 million people in the New York City, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and other middle Atlantic states–the upside only being it is “natural gas”, while the downside being the destruction of the largest aquifer in the world, namely that aquifer in upstate New York that feeds all of said citizens with clean, safe drinking water.  President Obama will be naming a new EPA director soon, hopefully providing some real teeth.  It will be an uphill battle with a congress that is still up to it’s old tricks of obstruction, at the expense of our children’s and grand children’s futures.  It is time to take a stand against these polluters, i.e. companies such as Halliburton, Koch Industries or Exxon-Mobile, who only gain from say that fracking process that is unregulated and top secret, pouring 596 deadly chemicals into the earth and emitting poisonous gases that will spoil our water systems forever in many locations here in the U.S…  You cannot replace a stream, a river, a gulf or an ocean, no matter what “their” business model tells you.  I pray this administration takes a hard look at that and continues to develop what many, many other countries are already embracing–clean energy–renewable and safe for OUR environment, an environment we all have to live in at this moment in ‘time’.  It is a wonder we as a species are so interested in other planets, such as Mars, and get all excited when there may be a prospect that water exists, therefore the possibility of life on said planet.  Yet we, living in this early part of the 21st century on planet earth, find no problem in destroying our own water sources because we are afraid of pissing off a couple of bully energy companies who have a stranglehold on the far right wing nut jobs in the House of Representatives, as well as some member of the U.S. Senate, a group that acts more as indentured servants than serving the public as it was set up in the Constitution.  Food for thought, and with the ever growing temperatures, rising seas, severe droughts, wild fires and stronger and stronger storms, may God see  fit to continue allowing US to grow that food; for without food and water, life does not exist. Have a wonderful week ahead folks and please, for the Love of common sense and your own basic mental, physical and spiritual health, steer clear of the wooden nickles thrown about by the likes of FOX NEWS.  Side effects still, and apparently always will, include blurred vision, nausea, dementia and delusion…  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
