Woods Hole, a village 7 miles from the island of Martha’s Vineyard, is the home to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, a place of higher learning. Marine biologists from around the world teach at this prestigious university, with it’s west coast counterpart being the University of California, or Scripts Institute, in La Jolla just outside of San Diego. With global warming, or as the politically correct would say, “climate change”, the fundamental threat to our species, on the march, I thought you might like a water view of one of the most important research facilities our country has to offer. With the debate raging in Washington regarding the insurance industry profit protection enhancement act about to be passed by our “elected” officials and the fact that we have done nothing, thus far, to restructure a banking system that rewards the few on the people’s dime, it is not surprising that our planet has taken a back seat to a real problem facing us all. What is the misconnect? The “Northeast Passage”, the term now used to describe the channel that is open due to the melting of the polar ice caps, allowing free sailing from New York to China and creating even more tension between nations already paranoid and full of fear, will gain more attention in the coming years. We have to comprehend the problem, as opposed to denying it, address it, and fix it if we have any hope to mend our beautiful world…I pray someone is listening…God Bless you all and have a wonderful Wednesday! Peace M
