Happy Earth Day

Research shows that 80% of Americans consider themselves environmentalists, including the Trojan Heron.

Enjoy your piece/peace of the earth today!


  1. Humans are too stupid to prevent climate change from radically impacting on our lives over the coming decades. This is the stark conclusion of James Lovelock, the globally respected environmental thinker and independent scientist who developed the Gaia theory.

    "I don't think we're yet evolved to the point where we're clever enough to handle a complex a situation as climate change," said Lovelock in his first in-depth interview since the theft of the UEA emails last November. "The inertia of humans is so huge that you can't really do anything meaningful."

    One of the main obstructions to meaningful action is "modern democracy", he added. "Even the best democracies agree that when a major war approaches, democracy must be put on hold for the time being. I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while."

    This could be the dream of the "friends"! Let's put democracy on hold and save the Islands.

  2. Our "friends" are undeterred. I have seen proposals to "control" the oceans and to manage habitat. As if . . . .

  3. Freedom is a dangerous thing from the "friends" perspective! You might use too much energy, eat the wrong foods, travel via the wrong mode (personal instead of public), live in the wrong place (San Juan Islands instead of inner city Oakland), purchase the wrong goods, and choose the wrong friends instead of "friends.

    Every rightwing nightmare is a response to a leftwing dream!
