Without healthy oceans the food supply for future generations and their very existence are at risk. And we know that even all carbon being released today from fossil fuels were to halt, the climate would continue to warm for some time. Kind of like how just because you see and iceberg it doesn’t mean that you have to steer the ship clear.

Diversity in America: Day 64.
Throughout the day I found myself riding side by side with a horse pulling along a buggy loaded with Amish people. This experience sparked the realization of how diverse America is.

An important piece of the puzzle moving forward
 
"To come up with a way to measure the societal value of building solar or wind farms, the researchers attached a monetary value to the pollution currently created by power plants—$20 per ton for carbon dioxide emitted. They did the same with costs associated with people dying from air pollution emitted from power plants—arriving at $6 million per person. Using these numbers, they were able to calculate how much money a region would save if they replaced current electricity plants with wind or solar farms. In so doing, they found a wide range, from $10 per megawatt hour in Arizona to $100 in several northeastern states".

Jeb Bush, showing a remarkable ignorance and/or naïveté of world history and the history of science pronounced he was skeptical of the pope expressing his views:
But I think religion ought to be about making us better as people and less about things that end up getting in the political realm.
The papacy of course has been involved in politics, sometimes for better and some for worse, since the founding of the church. Certainly many Catholics reference the papal edicts regarding abortion and marriage. And many great scientific discoveries and proofs come from monks and those who considered themselves Christian, such as Gregor Mendel, Pope John XXI,  Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton and Boyle.

I had no idea until today that Disney tried to trademark "SEAL Team 6" 2 days after the famous operation. Unreal, yet so much so not.

From the WSJ " Walt Disney Co. said Wednesday that it would pull an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in which the entertainment giant sought the exclusive right to use the term "SEAL Team 6" on items ranging from toys and games to snow globes and Christmas stockings."
