Pompeo Cheers Shrinking Sea Ice For Clearing Trade Routes: “The Arctic Is At The Forefront Of Abundance”

To hell with the environment and the life that needs the habitat we are destroying as long as we can get a few more barrels of oil and dig out a few more  minerals.  Greed is destroying life and these administration demands more death for connivance.   Hugs

Pompeo Cheers Shrinking Sea Ice For Clearing Trade Routes: “The Arctic Is At The Forefront Of Abundance”

“The Arctic is at the forefront of opportunity and abundance,” Pompeo said in remarks in Rovaniemi, Finland. “It houses 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil, 30 percent of its undiscovered gas, an abundance of uranium, rare earth minerals, gold, diamonds, and millions of square miles of untapped resources, fisheries galore.”

“Steady reductions in sea ice are opening new passageways and new opportunities for trade,” he continued. “This could potentially slash the time it takes to travel between Asia and the West by as much as 20 days.”

Recently Ron went to the stone place near us and got 25 bags of marble chip and filled the planter.  A friend of ours had painted up a bunch of yard statues for us.   This weekend Ron got some new plants for the side garden, and planted them.  Here are the pictures and two very short videos.   Hugs

Nan sent me this, and it is an interesting read

Filed under: Earth News, Education, Nature, News, Political, Reason, Science, Things I like — Scottie @ 19:03

Thank you Nan for sending me this interesting read.  I have a story to add to this.  Recently I went alone to the grocery store as Ron was sleeping after working a 12 hour shift.   When I got to the register at a store I am well known at, the cashier told me I did not have to put each bottle on the conveyor belt.   I explained I really need to as I need a bag with handles to get the groceries inside my home.   I love this store.  First the cashier told me they would put them in bags for me with out me having to lift them, and second the woman doing the bagging offered to get me non-plastic bags to put the grocers in so I could carry them.  Now to be openly clear we do use some plastic bags to hold the material from the cat box but even our cats can not poop and pee enough to use as many bags as we get.  So to make a long story short, I talked to Ron about this and we are going to buy as many bags as we may normally need and put them in the car.  We will use these as we can.  This is our small attempt to make this a better planet for everyone.  Again thanks Nan.  Hugs

John Anderson Lyrics

“Seminole Wind”

Ever since the days of old,
Men would search for wealth untold.
They’d dig for silver and for gold,
And leave the empty holes.
And way down south in the Everglades,
Where the black water rolls and the saw grass sways.
The eagles fly and the otters play,
In the land of the Seminole.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Progress came and took its toll,
And in the name of flood control,
They made their plans and they drained the land,
Now the glades are going dry.
And the last time I walked in the swamp,
I sat upon a Cypress stump,
I listened close and I heard the ghost,
Of Osceola cry.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

This reminds me of our Purr. We rescued him from an outside cat fighting to survive. After he got use to us and being indoors he never wanted to go outside again. He went from fierce fighter to big lover. Hugs
