Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Not Even Bothering To Rearrange the Deck Chairs

Apparently we cannot even be bothered to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic (referring to global climate change and peak oil) let alone make a halfhearted attempt to get the babies and women in the lifeboats. I have suspected as much since the 1970's when the window of opportunity to address this problem in an effective and significant way opened and then closed again in the span of a few short years, while celebrity divorces, petty dictator's temper tantrums and making the almighty dollar - damn the cost! - occupied the worthy citizens.


From Frum Forum, The latest talk on the Hill has it that climate legislation has no chance this year, given the bandwidth consumed by high jobless numbers, financial reform, a healthcare debate hanging around like an unwanted in-law, and the starboard turn of 2010 electoral politics.
