Going, Going, Gone.

Glaciers. Warmer is not better. It means no water, or everywhere and not a drop to drink.

On Wallace Stegner

“We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in. For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope.”
Amen.

Duel on Front Street

Of Nome, Alaska that is. Looks like a cabin burner finish to Iditarod 2008. This is no country for old men, but former four time champ Jeff King of McKinley Park doesn't know it.

In Memoriam: four time champion Susan Butcher 1954-2006 to leukemia.

Update: Mackey won. Two in a row. Here's to ya man! No real job in the windshield, ah driving bow. That's always a cool thing.

Science Debate 2008

My candidate, Hillary Clinton, is the only candidate on record who has given a major science speech. It's no accident. She, John Edwards and Dennis Kucinich were the only ones at the Grist Global warming forum here in LA last fall. Only one candidate has a viable plan to combat climate change and the stifling of scientists like the country's foremost climatologist, NASA's James E. Hansen. The future is now.
