Pipeline Again

Read About it here http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2012/06/26/bc-cartoonist-enbridge-spoof.html

A related but not connected event, another really hard choice to be made for the future, is described in the below video. If you want to hear the heart-wrenching choice described by the son of one of the Canadian executives involved with this pipeline, I recommend you listen to his whole whole testimony.

If you just want to know his last word on the subject, this is it.

“So, if on one hand, you had an unpredictable path, that leads into a new dream, a new way of life for all of mankind. and on the other hand, you had a predictable path that leads to the slow, inevitable decline of a civilization. Which path would you choose? Thank you.”

Sometimes there are no bad guys. That does not change our responsibility to make good choices for the future.

Another not-directly-related statement of climate reality is explained by William deBuys on Bare Bones Biology this coming week. I will probably get it posted here and on http://www.barebonesbiology.com tomorrow.
