Can’t let the day go by without recalling the terrible day when the Battleship Arizona, peacefully anchored in Pearl Harbor, suffered a surprise attack by Japanese bombers. My daughter-in-law’s father was an Arizona survivor, so we always remember. Terrible day. But it is wise to recall that there are such attacks, that life is uncertain, and there are no guarantees that bad things will not happen. It does not mean that we have to live in fear, only that we struggle to do the best we can in an uncertain world. Eighty years ago, and those who do remember were little kids at the time.

And now we have a Space Force. Many think it’s premature, but they have discovered what seem to be habitable planets out there. The fear of the Earth ending from global warming is nonsense. The Earth is not warming much, and it has been much warmer in the past. CO2 is not a pollutant, but a natural fertilizer for plants, and is making the Earth bloom and bountiful food crops are helping to feed the hungry. And the “Green New Deal” is a very bad idea that w.ill accomplish nothing at all. Wind and Solar cannot produce the energy needed by a modern economy.
