Environmentally Speaking – Transportation’s Green-Tech Fail

Ethanol as government energy policy has been an economic and environmental bust. There's little debate: it inflates motor fuel prices, while compromising the environment. And that was before this summer's drought reducing corn and wheat supply. President Obama is under pressure from all sides to waive the ethanol requirement for less expensive fuel and food.

Tight Lines - Wild Doesn’t Mean Pets

I saw an item on the nightly news recently about a fellow accused of trying to sell two bear cubs. He claimed he'd been attacked by the mama bear and had to kill her in self-defense. Rather than abandon the cubs to die, he had brought them into town. The story gets a little fuzzy from then on, but eventually the cubs were taken by Fish and Game personnel to a shelter that specializes in releasing critters back into the wild. The cubs were really cute little guys and I hope they make it in their transition back to ...
