I was just reading an article in my local paper about what may be Disturbing Effects caused by Global Warming.
Eric Orff is a Wildlife Biologist formerly with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. He retired in June! His job was, in essence, Monitoring the Fine Balance of Mother Nature in our beautiful State. He is also a Blogger on a forum called New Hampshire Nature Notes. There unfortunately is no comments section
Over the years Mr. Orff has noticed a change in the Natural Rhythm of how and when Seasonal changes take place. Crickets and Frogs are usually silenced by mid-October but now the Frost that signals those changes....did not happen till November. Rivers used by Snow machines are now Barely Frozen enough to walk on and there are large sections of open water. Many birds...No Longer Migrate.
Eric Orff has been calling attention to these environmental changes for years.
Fortunately there are those in positions of power who have chosen to no longer ignore......
Eric's article brought S.2191 (America's Climate Security Act of 2007) to my attention!
This is a bill to Limit Green House Gas Emmisions. If passed it would promote a Gradual Reduction in emissions from the present until 2050. By 2050 there would be the anticipated Reduction of 70%.The Bill will include Financial Incentives for reducing emissions. It will also include $500 billion through 2030 for zero and low-carbon technology investments.
This measure has been recommended to the Full Committee on Environmental & Public Works.
Some may feel this Bill is lacking, that it doesn't go far enough...that may be so. But it is a Rare Bi-Partisan Effort , a step in he right direction and an acknowledgement that there is a serious problem.
We, as Realtors, need to Encourage These Efforts and Entreat Our Representatives to bring them to fruition.
We are Purveyors of the American Dream.
