Carbon Dioxide

Emission Wars

Geese in the shade by the cool water.

Carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of oil, coal and natural gas accounts for about 80 percent of U.S. overall greenhouse gas output according to the United States Energy Information Administration.

Is it any wonder that the fossil fuel industry has dumped hundreds of millions of dollars into anti environmental propaganda.

Koch Industries would rather render this world unlivable than reduce their CO2 emissions to meet EPA standards. That is insane.

Martian Sand Pit

This was taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in July 2011. See the hole in the bottom? You can tell from the lighting that this is an underground opening to a cavern — a skylight.

Amazing Flowers Further Examined

At different times of the day, the sunlight and shadow will create these different moods from the same flower. I find it fascinating and magical.

It is so nice to be able to photograph the world around me and observe the changes.

Along The River

The first two images on this page were taken from near where I parked the Buick in the shade. It was 104 degrees at the time, ( around 5:30pm ). The first image is that of geese by the shore. The second image is the reflection of an old bridge on the Sacramento as the water flowed past me on it’s way to the San Francisco bay, or Fresno, or even San Diego.

The driveway rose bush keeps making more new buds.

So far, no one seems to want a free parakeet. My seed eating house guest stays another day.
