I live in Colorado, ladies and gentlemen I wore a short sleeve shirt to christmas. This does not happen here. It has been worse and worse every year and its not just affecting our environment but our economy. Rafting companies, ski companies, winter and summer ecotourism has declined severely. I wish I could say I dont see the signs but I do. Anyone who wants to have a deeper discussion about the science involved here I have a masters in biology, bachelors in biology and chemistry. However, the bottom line is the environment does release these gasses naturally but we have accelerated it significantly and the system is out of balance. We need to seek balance in all things especially as druids. We are taught to think in threes not twos, binary thinking meaning it is good or it is evil this is discouraged....so we need to look to the middle ground the third piece moderation. Can we use clean technology to balance our use of hydrocarbons? The answer is there for those who will open their eyes.
I propose we take this out of the perspective of politics however! GOP or Democrat another binary if you believe one then the other is evil. This issue needs to be non-partisan. Can we instead view it as a scientific theory and treat it as such. I believe if confronted with the science without the politics if both sides removed this from their war chest and instead put it in the collaborative middle of the road pile we could come to some better solutions.
Lets collaborate as druids instead of GOP or DEM!
With hope for middle ground,
