Sixth Great Mass Extinction Event Begins ...

From everything I've read about Climate Change, 

I believe that we are definitely on a trend into the scary part of the unknown. Watching the planet and its inhabitants evolve over time ... my lifetime ... is of great interest to me. 

If I am anything, I am a student of my own life. How I perceive and interact in this world determines who I am. I typically spend several hours a day reading about all kinds of eclectic topics. Environmental news is attractive because I know my very existence as a human may depend on it ... you know, be aware of your surroundings.  

I am currently living in central California, which is smack-dab in the middle of a drought. It's 108 degrees today. We are reclaiming the desert at an alarming rate.

Having this blog is part of my process. I might have told you before, but this little blog is like a file cabinet for me. I throw stuff in here to keep for awhile. Reference material. Things that amuse me or strike a chord. 

Which brings me to this Sixth Great Mass-Extinction Event that is kicking off this year. 

I remain an optimist and am betting on the human race to wake up and begin to make better choices toward sustainability if not survival. 

I have no idea what will happen over a great amount of time. I am 69 years old, so how many years do I have? Maybe one of the grandkids will find this interesting ... an old relic from the past. Who knows?  

Read about it here.

The Confederate Flag Comes Down For Now

The Confederate Flag belongs in a museum. 

That is the only place it should be seen ... not flying above a capitol building in Charleston, not flying on the back of a pick-up truck and not depicted on license plates across the south. 

Take it down now and put it in a museum where it belongs. Now.

Amazing Grace How Sweet The Sound

I believe that this eulogy will go down as one of President Obama's finest. That's why I'm saving here for posterity. Please listen to it all.

Bernie Sanders - The President We Need

Crazy Lindsay Graham Announces His Run For the Presidency

I won't spend any time giving Lindsay Graham space on my blog, but this article from about sums up why he will never be a contender. He's not qualified to be President; he isn't even qualified to hold a seat in the US Senate. Here is the article.
