Still deny climate change is snowballing? Then explain Tornado Alley’s rapid shift eastward and how it now resembles a multilane expressway. Science has proved greenhouse gases are partially responsible. Should we stop the snowball at the top of the hill or ignore it as it bears down on our village?
Wind energy won’t be viable until storing electricity on a large scale is a reality. Today, if you want electricity continually available in your home, wind energy requires a backup source (coal or nuclear) when there is no wind, and that makes the costs too high.

Gosh, I wish we could get an IKEA store here.
A 90-year-old soft-spoken man has passed by my house for 10 years. I just found out he is a surviving soldier of the D-Day invasion. History can pass right in front of us and we are unaware. Ask questions.
