Sunny Sunday

When presenting the groundbreaking report “Our Common Future” to the U.N. General Assembly in 1987, former Prime Minister of Norway and current Deputy Chair of The Elders Gro Brundtland spoke out on the need for a new way of doing business. “We must break away from our sectoral ways of viewing economy and ecology. We must learn to accept the fact that environmental considerations and economic growth are parts of a unified management of our planet. The one is dependent on the other.”

As we prepare to head to COP21, those words ring more true than ever. Representatives from more than 190 national governments will meet to negotiate a new international agreement on climate change. This chance to reduce global greenhouse-gas emissions and mitigate the threat of climate change represents the biggest economic and social opportunity of all time.

    Major “Carolizing yesterday. Started cleaning the basement. Worked in the utility side, my laundry area, vacuuming all the rafters and along and around everything. De-cobwebbed. I have two shelves in that area, one next to my washer and dryer, opposite wall, a shell for canned goods. My cheap, jury-rigged “pantry.” Removed everything, washed the shelves, and put everything back neat as a pin. Ahh.

    That’s one quarter of the basement. If I feel like more, I’ll continue from the furnace to the west wall. Lots of stuff has to find a new home. That’s what happens when there is a table sitting somewhere, you’ll end up tossing stuff on it. Well, I let that get away from me this summer so I have to cure that. Can’t see the work table, some blankets, etc, marring it.

    The other half the basement is the room we had put in. That’s easy to keep clean, spiders don’t accumulate like they do on the other side of the wall with nothing but cinder blocks and rafters. I’ll do the nice room last then decorate it for Christmas.

    Right now, I’m hungry. Time to whip something up to eat for us. Hmm, I think a turkey sandwich with an inch of mao will work.
