I set up this open dialog thread after noticing some very heartfelt comments following an article I posted concerning global climate change. The comments there soon evolved into a very valuable dialog, far beyond the immediate issue of climate change.
I have copied some of those comments here … to “seed” the ongoing discussion for those who might want to continue the dialog unrelated to climate change here.
