ISSUE THEME SONG: Because All Men Are Brothers; Peter, Paul & Mary
STANDING WITH STANDING ROCK
Hi again, gang, from the shores of the Salish Sea. Few controversies in the new century (or for that matter, the last half of the old one) have more impact than any national leadership change or referendum. In the wake of the election of an individual considered opposed to the green agenda, indigent North Americans, environmentalists, veterans and civic and religious leaders from the Mexican border to the Arctic Circle are saying “No.”
This resistance has all the seeds of a deeper revolt in Canada and the US by people who are even wearier of the resistance of major fossil fuel companies to environmentally appropriate technology than they are traditional political agendas which promise much, cost even more and in many cases, accomplish absolutely nothing.
This quintessentially populist movement for a clean environment and energy which does not come from what were, at one time, living plants and animals is not one that Exxon or British Petroleum have the strategy and tactics to oppose because this is not a fixed piece battle.
It is not a fixed piece battle and it is not one David against a single Goliath. It is a rejection of energy sources and it means that not only is every proposed pipeline or coal-fired project on the line but those already in place as well.
It is also about supporting the wind, solar, methane, tidal and low yield hydro available from Victoria to Halifax and from Juneau to Tallahassee. This movement is green technology savvy to the maximum. It is one well versed in the industrial evolution of our species as well as the socio-political history in which this march from Prometheus to the stars.
It is very likely, however, that this “revolution” will have one thing in common with those of a violent nature. More blood will be shed. Martyrs will be made of people who do not deserve to die. Sometimes it will seem like the bowels of Hell itself have opened up and there will be days, if not weeks, of violent news.
In the end, however, green will prevail because green is no longer just a party or a term. Green now identifies who else we are besides Canadians and Americans willing to fight and die for their respective nations, abroad certainly.
And at home, if necessary.
Have a great week, gang, and thanks for the ear.

Hello Rusty and Thank You:
And yes, happy snow landscapes are around while I look out the window of an intercity train to nature’s masterpiece. She is such a prolific artist, Mother Nature, to paint all these intricate details like frozen grass or trees into white.
Ukraine has changed her dress for winter and skiing and snowboarding season in the Carpathians has officially started. One of the best ski resorts is Bukovel which offers winter leisure with a nice traditional touch.
Shall I also mention advantages of national cuisine? Local people still mostly adhere to wholesome foods and traditional meals. The diet is the reason that common people are quite calm and friendly in general. In Ukraine, there are still villagers who provide high-quality produce, one of treasures of my country. Most western nations gave up their original eating habits in exchange for the convenience of packaged foods preserved with hydrogenated oils. So sometimes being a step behind is a good thing.
That’s all for this week. Stay warm, Mishka. And btw, working from a train office is quite fun 🙂
