The magical quality that lures so many creative, free thinking individuals to The Vineyard can positively influence the future of sustainable marine energy.
Did you know that Edgartown holds a Tidal Power permit for use in the Muskeget Channel?
This project sits fallow while Vineyard Wind gets all the hype.
Yet, in your heart of hearts, you all know that Vineyard Wind will never benefit anyone but GE and the lawyers.
You’re too smart to believe that offshore wind will ever achieve a positive carbon balance.
The pylons are steel, made using coal.
The service and maintenance vessels all run…
Our long hot streak may be over.
In recent decades we have eliminated so many of the things out there trying to kill us that we’ve become complacent.
Sitting back, all fat and sassy, we stare into our screens and devour empty calories for fun.
There’s been no reason to remain lean and mean, on constant alert, hackles up, prepared for fight or flight at any second.
Relax, somebody will solve the problem.
Climate Change, fuggitabout it.
There are smart people working on that.
We’ll get through it.
We always do.
COVID-19, it’s either fake or easily defeated.
Introducing the best thing to happen since this pandemic started.
It’s called The Humangasm Wave.
Here’s how it works.
Every day, at 4:00 PM, no matter where you are or what you are doing, stop for an instant and relax by letting out a full tilt AARRGHH!!!
Rattle your bones and let it all out.
Then, gather yourself and go back to whatever you were doing.
There’s no need to remove your mask or shout loudly.
Don’t disperse anything into the atmosphere except the feeling of frustration emanating out of your body.
An hour later it’s 4:00 PM in the…
In this age of overzealous Nationalism, we are suddenly faced with COVID-19, the great global equalizer.
Borders be damned.
You can wear your MAGA hats while chanting OO ESS EY forever.
Do you think we can divert the wall funds towards a huge bubble?
How about lining up soldiers at our borders repeating CO VID GONE over and over?
I suggest we channel the overzealous partisanship everyone seems to love right now, and simply switch to a new chant.
Become a Planetarian.
Repeat these words, Planet Earth ( PLAN IT EARTH ), with the same cadence as OO…
Francis says COVID-19 is Nature’s response to Climate Change.
As for Don Boy’s response, DOUBLE DUH…!
The human population of planet Earth has more than doubled since the end of WWII due to our use of petroleum.
We overdid it as always with the blind faith that somebody will figger it out.
We always do.
Unfortunately, Nature beat us to the punch this time and has chosen to thin the herd.
Politics, economics, and endless blathering are meaningless.
Humans have no brakes or reverse.
We should be able to figger it out from here.
Hang onto your hats…here we go…!!!!
What’s gonna happen to the food and beverage industry after COVID-19?
Simply put, corporate entities will survive and flourish in the distopian future.
TRUMP will own a piece of every one of them.
He has said several times in his daily pressers, “maybe we’ll take a piece of the action”, speaking of the businesses he saves with Federal loans.
Not just restaurants, Ford, GM, airlines and aircraft manufacturers, auto makers, and every other critical industry on Earth will be re-branded TRUMP USA.
Individual pieces of fruit will soon have faux gold UPC stickers saying TRUMP, along with the bar code.
This should be a doozy.
I can feel Earth bursting with newness.
Billions of humans are facing serious reflection time.
An insidiuos virus from who knows where is sweeping the planet, threatening the health and well being of all Humanity, and bringing the global economy to a screeching halt.
This is the stuff of biblical legend, fire, famine, pestilence and that kinda thing.
And, it’s actually happening in real time, giving us all a heads up.
For me, the Epiphany arrived with thoughts of…
It has to be.
There’s nothing anyone can do to stop it.
How’s this for a change?
In the recent half century the Human population of planet Earth has doubled.
Overuse of petroleum resources is fueling this amazing change.
How’s that for a quandry?
Procreation is our thing.
The thrust of humanity has no brakes, no reverse, and no time for caution.
For the vast majority of people, life is not an intellectual exercise.
It’s get up and go, fasten your seatbelt, and hold onto your hat.
Which brings us to our boy BLOTUS ( Boss Leader Of The United…
Yoda meets John Lennon.
The two are passing on a street when their eyes meet.
Both stop and stare at one another, frozen in a moment of realization.
Yoda speaks first, saying, “There is no try, only do.”
Lennon responds, “There are no problems, only solutions.”
They give each other a nod of recognition and continue on their way, never to meet again.
As luck would have it, Yours Truly was also walking along that same street at that exact moment.
Couldn’t help but overhear.
Try, do, problems, solutions, that’s what it’s all about.
