I am presently in beautiful Roseburg, Oregon near Eugene and Cottage Grove where I also spoke a few years ago (2006). I'm speaking for a group of really nice people in Canyonville, Oregon, Lighted Way Ministries. I return to Michigan on Tuesday, April 22nd. Richard Peterson, known to most of us as "Rich of Medford" has prepared an article and kindly submitted it for publication here which I am more than honored to do. He would appreciate your "on topic" comments. So would I.

Last month the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on the impacts of climate change. The message that civilization is on the brink of collapse ought to raise a sense of déjà vu in those familiar with the 1972 Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment materials, in part, because that is the IPCC’s template. The Stockholm Conference served to consolidate the environmental movement and provided it with a political voice.
