Today I traveled to Wise, VA, a small coal-mining town not far from the Cumberland Gap, to speak at the "public" hearing of the Air Pollution Control Board. read more »

Yesterday, I spoke at a public hearing on a permit application by Dominion Power, and it was highly disheartening. In fact, I almost walked out! Since most of the readership here is not local to this project, I'll offer as background that the proposed plant is to generate power using "clean" coal technologies - an oxymoron, of course! read more »

Archemedes designed a system that took parabolic mirrors and focused them into what he called a death ray to burn through wooden hull ships. Myth busters tried... but at least reached a 700 degree celsius beam, that if we combined his ray with his spinning globe steam engine it will become the "Ellis Peace Ray". read more »

The almighty LAWN

without seeing the blood that is

I can not look at green lawns
where dandelions used to be found

I can not see an acre of clear-cut
trees without falling down on my

for future members of the human
who really should not have to pay read more »

These are from my book, "Moontides, and Other Changes" with current update (every other verse) to first piece.
No matter what your nationality, politics or religious beliefs we should all be very concerned
about Mother Earth and our own future. We just can't go on pretending there isn't anything to worry about, no matter what big business and gov't tells us. I, for one, believe Global Warming IS real!! read more »

The Earth, Mother Earth, is heavy with child and woefully ill. Who tends her as a loving, giving, whole and integrated being? What will she bring to birth?

Beneath that massive, swollen belly, her water broke, spilling, spilling - everywhere, over days, months, pooling anywhere, here and there, heedless of its path.
