I come tonight to the February 2006 National Geographic which is excellent. The President of the society points out that when National Geographic surveyed the geographic knowledge of students from nine nations, the students of the U.S. finished next to last. National Geographic intends to advance the cause of geographic literacy in this country. They need members. It is worthwhile to subscribe. Some of the articles this month are on LOVE, plasma, the fourth state of matter, along with solid, liquid, and gas, the Serengeti, California's attempt to save endemic plants and animals, and the melt-down in the Alps. Ski resorts are placing blankets on the ice to save the snow. National Geographic publishes articles showing clearly that global warming is here, despite Bush's refusal to see or acknowledge what is obvious to the scientific community and those who make a living from noticing the weather. The San Francisco Chronicle today has an article on how global warming is affecting the Baja peninsula and the migration of the whales.
