Approach of fall -

These last two days have been delightful, with the invigorating scent of fall in the air.  I love it!!

AAA's Via Magazine comes today with an article on global warming and the vanishing glaciers.    As much as I know it, I am still shocked, when I read that "Glacier National Park will likely lose the last of its namesake formations in just 25 or 30 years, according to Don Fagre, a local researcher with the U.S. Geological Survey."    "The Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, which opened in 1963 close to Juneau's backyard glacier, is now a mile or more from its frozen face."

The article suggests visiting farmer's markets, eating local produce, and tuning up your car.   You can also calculate your greenhouse gas emissions, and then, pay to offset the damage on websites such as www.carbonfund.org.
