“Who owns the water?” is not a question you may have asked yourself. However, this is not a new question for many, and there is some legal framework, however arbitrary it may be, to address it. Usage and misusage of water upstream can have lasting effects on areas downstream, and…
In late January of 2019, the jet stream lost control of the polar vortex, bringing previously unseen temperatures and precipitation over most of North America. As warmer air disrupted the frigid arctic air, this massive wave of heavy wind and subzero temperatures leeched south and brought rivers and streams to…
what is resilience but rapid recovery
bouncing back full swing after catastrophe
it speaks of longevity with a youthful nature
to be able to restore such majestic grandeur
our planet is resilient in spite of our desires
to bend the very world as a plaything of ours
it will be…
Why are we still doing this? Seems the worse the problem gets, the more energy is spent on denying it. As I’m writing this, it strikes me that this situation is a lot like the stages of grief… diluted across the people of the world.
Some of us deny the…
ripped from our home,
they move earth to get rid of us
they poison us,

To strengthen a forest by water,
you’ll need a riparian buffer.

Tiny little Oxygen.
Each less than
a nanometer across,

(Maybe even Lo Mein
Could be their bane)
It sounds awesome as a DM
(Could be me, hem hem)
When I am one
There should be a horse…
