4/19/07-A WARMING WORLD: THE DIFFERENCE A DEGREE MAKES PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jane Kay, Chronicle Environment Writer   
Friday, 20 April 2007
I traveled to Baja in August of 2003, arrived and departed in between 2 hurricanes. The desert was strangely in full bloom; beautiful, but very odd, especially for that time of year. I dove at Cabo Pulmo, the subject of this article. I remember being struck by two things in particular; The incredible beauty, diversity, and richness of the undersea life there, and also how incredibly warm, almost "hot", the diving experience was. The water temperature at that time was well into the mid eighties... There were no whales there...This article refreshed memories of my experience there, and does a good job of emphasizing the interconnectedness of all living things on the planet...     -John Sarter

A new study confirms what I have believed for some time, we need to use the free, onsite energy sources available to us, solar, wind, and water, to generate our OWN power to charge our own ELECTRIC vehicles for the bulk of our every day driving. Invest in your future, the future of your children, and of our planet, by investing in your own power generation and electric rechargeable vehicles. The best part is, NO ONE will ever be able to charge you for using the sun, wind, and water on your own property!
