Keep up with the podcasts. Most recently Jacob Roberts, Kathy Reiner, Drawdown Panel, and Jessica Madrid. Go to: Podcasts. You know how to download the app and listen.


Speaking of Drawdown. We have been talking about the Drawdown project for a few years. Because you went to the above mentioned podcast you have seen the links for both the Nurses Drawdown and the Project Drawdown. Well, if you forgot to click the links, now you have them again. The table of solutions at the Project is particularly fun for its anti-hubris, pride crushing, I thought I knew what was going on, value. Click the solutions column to see the rankings.


Everything appears to be cooking up for a hot summer. Covid is going to keep me from my usual cooling plans which include hanging out near the frozen food aisle at the grocery store or going to the theatre and dodging the staff so I can stay in the theater all day. For a lot of info, graphs, basic stuff, go to: Climate Central.


Much is going on. Can we do any environmental work in the midst of Covid? Take heart that even in New York, which as we know is one of the Covid ground zeroes, there is an agenda. Take a look at how Clean and Healthy New York is talking about chemical work today.
