Re: Global warming and Rita
I thought of that when the Tsunami hit, because one of the natives commented
to a reporter that the island looked much like it had 20 years prior,
without all the hotels, businesses, etc. Don't laugh, ya'll, but I honestly
believe that....for instance when there are earthquakes and landslides that break
up all the roads, asphalt, etc. It's as if the earth is trying to shake off
some of it so it can breathe better.
In Germany, many many years ago already (okay, maybe not that long, I'm not
THAT old) but when I was younger they already had separation of the
trash....compost from the non-compostable. The only paved areas were the streets.
One was not allowed to pave driveways or walkways around the house...there had
to be "greenspace" every so many meters, through parking lots, along roads,
bldgs, etc. They used special pavers that allowed the grass to grow
inbetween, or gravel or such as driveways and walkways.
Not sure if Rita is coming this way, but govt. here is not taking any
chances, Galveston is already evacuating all nursing homes, and making preparations
to evacuate people with public transportation. The Katrina evacuees from
the GRB and the Astrodome/Reliant are being evacuated today and given free
flights to anywhere they want to go away from the coast. Most are being flown to
Arkansas. Messages are being flashed at the bottom of the TV screen telling
people where to go for public transportation, and that they can take their
pets. Boy...they'd have to give me and my "kids" a bus for us alone. LOL Sure
hoping it doesnt' come to that, not sure what we'd do. Mom says to build an
arc, or rent a Uhaul.
Jim, hope all is well with you and yours.

Just played a clip of Jon Stewart's interview of Kurt Vonnegut.
Vonnegut said Katrina was earth's immune system trying to get rid of
us. Not a bad analogy, I think.
