Motutapu Island is home to an initiative that recognizes easing the survival of a bird that is a symbol of Aotearoa, New Zealand’s people. Predators take most of the young chicks of a highly endangered species of wild life. Saving the Kiwi is a must. An impressive feat.

STORMS, HEAT WAVES, POWER OUTAGES – USA ELECTRICITY IN CITY PLANNING NEEDS TO CHANGE QUICKER TO GREENER LIVING DESIGN
America needs to get a lot quicker in developing energy (electricity) that isn’t so fossil fuels dependant. A lot of USA’s electricity is also generated from nuclear energy.
As global warming changes weather patterns (due to increased industrial pollution and war’s scars accumulate on the earth’s landscapes) substantially, this is critical for American citizens peace of mind, health, well being and survival as a people.
Watching New Zealand foeign correspondent, Jack Tame reporting from Detroit on the news here, about the record heat wave in parts of the USA combined with power outages, really hit the message home. His coverage looks like so: Triple-digit heat wave continues in Eastern US, and Fierce thunderstorms knock out power in US.
The one lady saying: “What people don’t understand is that when you get to over 55 years of age, air conditioning is so important to your health.”
Good point. There’s no air conditioning without electricity and sadly, there’s no electricity in much of the USA without fossil fuels being burned to create electiricity for air conditioners in rising hot summer conditions. Perhaps someone can create an app from the USA, that allows people the opportunity to switch their power from a fossil fuels generated power company to a green energy one, instead? The USA is so good at apps science creation.
Watch the clip above, as a reminder we need to think greener quicker, for the USA.
Our hearts go out to the lives lost within the USA this week. Peace!
