Maybe corporate America and Republicans are right about global warming (I'm just trying to put an optimistic spin to this looming crisis) and Peak Oil is way in the future (the Chicago Mercantile Exchange has petroleum at $93.62/barrel in 2020), maybe this mess we're now in will merely become a repeat of the 1970's when we recovered from acid rain, the population bomb (remember, I predicted a population of 7 billion...in 2050), the Vietnam War, Limits to Growth, and two energy crises.
Of course, what is Thanksgiving without a turkey dinner, so I joined Betsy and Harvey Lee with their family and friends. But, just as I arrived at their home I saw the following scene. How appropriate for Hawaii: yellow hibiscus state flower, banana plants and a gorgeous rainbow:
The drinks flowed, the feast was fabulous and it took the equivalent of a village to orchestrate the adventure resulting in my being safely delivered home at the end of the evening. Thank you Betsy, Harvey, Jack, Diane, Brad, Minda and James.
