After the recent unsettled weather here, I'm paying closer attention. Yes, I understand that no one weather event points to global warming, but the trend and the science do. I'd rather we take heed, work to stabilize our climate and reduce our emissions now than face even more forceful storms to come. We were lucky only to lose trees in the microburst that hit us recently. Next time lives could be at stake. See: http://jsbrookspresents.blogspot.com/2013/06/violent-storm-last-night-reflections.html
Oh, by the way, Dick also had a long, early history in the music industry. He's also placed a lot of videos on his site from great musicians well worth your time listening to and enjoying.
Keep up the good work Dick!
