Now that the volcanic ash cloud of terror has dissipated enough to allow air travel to resume, Europeans are rediscovering trains after standing by while commercial air travel sat like a duck out of water.

Earth Day... Moon Night

Buzz Aldrin - man on the moon commented upon looking at the earth from that unique perspective:

"One small step for man, one giant vacuum cleaner for mankind.

Buzz recently toured prez Obam! through Cape Kennedy and got a big blast of federal funding to energize space exploration. Throwing money into space is nice in a starwars kinda way but there are pressing needs down on the ground.

Long term change is most obvious when we take a rear-view mirror look at works in progress such as US president Jimmy Carter pitching solar panels during the 1970's oil shortage or the Three Gorges Dam in China, biggest hydro-electric install thus far with huge environmental footprint.

Stray Within the Lines

Children draw the darnedest things.

Volcano Watch

The attack on the World Trade Center was akin to volcanic eruptions... we know they will happen, we just can't say when.

Fast Forward 2019

From the look of this merchant, september 11 was a long time ago and safe for trivialization.

News Grows Up in Smoke
