Thunderbolt and lightening, very very frightening,
that same storm that ravaged parts of the Pacific Northwest lately.
But Oroville Dam picked up 20’ of water I heard
There is a light snow-pack on the western mountains.
Gotta build up that ice on the mountains to recharge the water table
or else we’ll survive because we divine the production of clean water from sea water.
The hydrological cycle is starting to wobble.
If we are passive, it will get worse.
We already must adjust our thinking
about how and where we build our homes
in the coming relentless storms.
So we can rebuild the same way in hurricane ravaged areas near Houston,
or we can design homes in safer places,
or safer homes for places with risk of predictable natural disasters.
If we stop all carbon today
it will not cure massive changes
in world weather patterns.
Grow local economies with
green investments in homes
Energy-efficiency retrofit and solar panels . . .
tax relief for capitalization than puts local people to work.
The past predicts the future
but TODAY DECIDES TOMORROW.
