It' Just Going To Get Worse in Twisp / Okanogan

Last year with the Carlton Complex fire, we lost 300 homes in Okanogan County. This year the county is on fire again, and most of the major towns are facing evacuation. They are even calling for volunteers. After watching 2 days of fire coverage on the local news, including comments by our politicians, not one word about climate change, or global warming, or how it may be making the fires worse. It is just going to get hotter, and drier, and the fires are just going to get worse and worse from year to year. That is the trend, and there is no mention of this fact whatsoever in the local news. I say this as I watch my Methow Valley burn. Again.

2. I'm so sorry.

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]The refusal to acknowledge causality and act on it now with an urgent WW2 kind of unified effort is a national cancer.

I know that accepting bad news is something we all balk at, but this ongoing denial among so many, even while repeatedly being bashed in the face with reality, is beyond my understanding.

Keep safe!

3. Corporate media being a major culprit in

the conditioning of the masses to focus only on the next marketing scheme that is aimed at dumbing down mechanisms which will further drain them of cognitive functioning and their dwindling cash flow.
