Only Humans Will Poison Their Water Supply

Historians define “Four cradles of human civilization” as the Tigris & Euphrates, Indus River, Nile Valley and Huang He (China) as vital regions on Earth which indicate clearly our survival is intimately linked to pure, abundant water.  Jared Diamond’s scholarly books point out how civilizations collapsed because their water supply dwindled.  Cadillac Desert by Marc [...]

A “Secret” On Abolishing Arms That Could Abort Earth’s Future

Which 21st century leader could openly support universal adoption of L-41 to abolish nuclear weapons? Would not the future of Earth, our “common home” and all living creatures be aborted in the event of another nuclear exchange? Who will be the potentate to call for use of nuclear weapons the third time?

When Will “Democracy Now” Be Silenced?

While living in Ossining, NY during the 1960’s, I listened to my friend Jim Beach from Tarrytown, NY give honest political reports about events each evening on Radio WHUD (Tarrytown is a city on the Hudson River 25 miles north of New York City).
