Poinsettia, June 16

Poinsettia, June 16

This poinsettia keeps growing into the summer. Little green leaves are beginning to appear, but this flower is about a foot across! I guess I hope the movement against climate change will keep growing the same way! (Without the seasonal changes, however!)

I wanted to comment about the blog below about books.
What does it say about our time when a book, Silent Spring, could call to action in the 60's, but it takes a movie, An Inconvenient Truth to do it now.

But that doesn't surprise Al Gore. In his latest book, The Assault On Reason, he tells in the Introduction that one of the main assaults on reason is that most people get most of their "news" from television now, not the written word.
