Thanks Cal. Hope you had a terrfic b-day!
Sopmething for everyone to consider. It is not the oil that threatens bio-diversity and eco-systems, it is the Consumers of oil that do all the nasty business. That means me, you and every other human, past, present and future who demand this source of energy. That goes for nuclear and other energy sources. We are the ones driving the markets to disasters.

Mankind acts as if it had another planet to go dash off too.

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.

Because we don't think about future generations, they will never forget us. ~Henrik Tikkanen
