Updates Before Nov 1998
- Rochester, New York, once just a single page, has now grown into an entire web site. Rochester Environment. Check it out
and let me know what you think of it.http://www.ggw.org/RochesterEnvironment/
- Last night I attended, Will Brighton Be Green? Preservation and the Future of
Brighton, a meeting sponsored by Hugh Mitchell, of the Save Pinnacle Hill Coalition
Regional Group. What hit me immediately is how hard the people at the
meeting were fighting for so relatively little land. A map presented at the meeting of the
land not developed in the Brighton area, showed how little there is to fight for. If
this map was put on the Internet that highlights just how relatively small an area these
community members want to keep free of development, it might just galvanize those who
haven't been paying attention.
- Happy Birthday to Green Solitaire: On October 28, 19997 I began Green Solitaire.

- Just posted new essay: Delegating
Our Environmental Responsibilities Becoming specialists has made us the most powerful
species on this planet. Giving over some responsibilities and rights to others allows the
group to transcend the inherent limitations of the individual. Here are some reactions to
- Re your post: I am in full agreement with you. The American
public in particular has been spoon fed propaganda for two generations via television.
Except for Viet Nam, we have been told that everything "is alright with the
world". Our financial system is, in my opinion, a lie being held together for the
purpose of keeping current governments in power. These governments represent the economic
leaders and business interests of their nations. If there is no money to be made, then the
governments will not intervene in any crisis around the world. Atrocities such as
Yugoslavia, and famines in Africa, the starvation in North Korea and Cuba are all
correctable. The costs of rebuilding the Russian infrastructure and supporting the Chinese
economic growth will be far more than monetary. Future wars will begin with a volley of
stock manipulation and bankruptcies. Then the missiles will fly. When the Soviet Union
disbanded, Americans were not told that the machinery was left in place to resume the
struggles if the political wind were to change. Environmental responsibility cannot be
delegated, because as usual when the flood overtakes the sewage plant, the sludge winds up
in the yards of the poorest people. Thank you Diogenes

- Just received a response from my
US Senator, Daniel Patrick Moyniham, about the King Cove Health and Safety
Act of 1997 (S. 1092). I e-mailed him a messaged about my concerns
about the construction of a 30-mile highway connecting the towns of King
cove and Cold Bay, Alaska. The project would affect seven miles of
Izembek Nation Wildlife Refuge. Senator Moyniham insures me that he is
"troubled by the prospect of disrupting the natural habitats these wetlands
