About Me

Well it just does not pay to complain because frankly, NO ONE CARES! I was raised in New York, and made the biggest mistake of my life in 1990 by moving to Indiana. Well, That's enough about me at this time.

March, in like a lion?

So far March is making its presence known across the country in a big way. Death and destruction everywhere, and just plain ugly weather across the country.

People will wring their hands and say its a manifestation of the Evil Global Warming plague that we humans in the industrial countries have foisted upon the planet. Myself, I'm not so sure.

I believe that we are arrogant if we believe that we effect the planet in any meaningful way. Could we hurt the planet, possibly. Would it heal itself, I think so. My rational for these feelings come from reading various sources. Some like State of Fear by Michael Crichton are definitely in the global warming is a myth category. Other books I read or movies I watch (like Al Gore's) go the other way.

As March roars in like a Lion (an old saying), I just don't think we have all of the answers. Can we be better stewards of the planet, probably. I believe though that we are trapped by the hyperbole and venom surrounding the issue. Once we can come together without going for each others jugulars or making the discussion about politics, then we will be able to accomplish something. Till then we will just watch and wait.
