Re: “Work In Progress

                I found the dunking machine full of gunk and garbage to be quiet humorous and gross, as did some other readers.  After reading articles and educating myself about the earth and the problems we are faced with, this is an issue that is here now.  We need to deal with our problems and solve them, like we were all taught in elementary school.  Since the beginning of our lives most of us were taught as children to use our words and solve the problem, not by whining.  Some need to go back to life 101 and revisit this idea.  I have heard many complaints and a lot of whining about our environment and what is going wrong with the oceans and the ozone.  I have not heard any significant ideas about how to fix the issues.  Maybe one here or there, but nothing has been taken into action.  As a community living on the Earth we need to take care of it. 


                As suggested by this author, I attended the lecture by Richard Freely, at Spokane Community College.  As I was listening to Freely speak about the ocean acidification and how the CO2 levels were rising in our ocean waters, there was a gentleman behind me making vulgar comments under his breath.  For example, when Freely was explaining how the CO2 levels have risen and the coral and fish were being endangered this gentlemen thought this was blown out of proportion and was false.  He was against climate change and people who supported it.  When I heard his comments like “bullshit” and “yeah right”, I smiled and kept on with my business.  This gentleman is a prime example of the “anti-science, climate-debunking folk here in Spokane,” Haeder was talking about in this article.  If this gentleman is against the topic of ocean acidification and the environment, why did he attend this lecture?       


                The point about “the press’s failure by being absent at most Earth Days” was also an eye-opening paragraph.  It seems the press is only interested in broadcasting the bad and evil, for example, the war in Iraq that is still happening today.  The citizens only hear the number of people who got shot today or the number of people who got captured.  What about the good?  Rarely, does good positive action get shown to the people of our society.  However, this Earth day in Spokane, was broadcast in Washington D.C for all to see.  There is still hope.
