RIP Roger Longnecker

 Roger Longnecker, my high school history teacher, was my favorite K-12 teacher. He treated us like adults, with respect, and helped us learn about early American history. He wrote my draft board a letter of support for my application for Conscientious Objector status. He passed away today from brain cancer. He is in my heart and I am sad. He was a good man.

cattails catastrophe

 Cattails are spreading widely around northern lakes. Studies show that this increases methane emissions compared to forests that usually occupy these areas. As a result, methane production by these areas is projected to increase 70% over the next 50 years. According to the EPA, methane is 25X more problematic than carbon dioxide in terms of climate change.

Lack of posts

 Just to let everyone know, I am busy with work, family, meditation, and exercise, to the point that I am not posting right now. I am doing well, for those that wonder. I hope you are too.
