Honey Bee Good News

  I imagine that many, if not most or all, of you know that the populations of pollinators have plummeted dramatically over the last couple of decades all over the world.  Bees and monarch butterflies are the canaries in the coal mine so to speak.    The dramatic decimation of their populations dramatize how what may appear to be minor changes in climate…

Is It Any Wonder?

Is It Any Wonder?

As I have been writing about for years and in many of my most recent articles, follow the money.  Fossil fuels are being abandon like a hot potato.  As predicted, costs of renewables have dropped more than dramatically.  In 10 years solar has gone from $300 a megawatt hour to $38 in China today.  And wind in the last 10 years…
