Happy Earth Day everybody. Though I don’t know how happy a day it is, especially if one considers the damage that has been unleashed on the water in the Gulf of Mexico and just off the west coat of Japan. In fact, this annual event might have us staring at the fact that environment degradation could be on the increase. Maybe an “earth week” or “earth month” is needed.
Along a similar note over 100 right whales have been spotted in Cape Cod Bay near eastern Massachusetts. This is a very large sighting of a species of whale that is very much endangered. Since estimates of the world population actually run less than 1,000, the numbers of whales seen is very encouraging. Maybe they know it’s earth day.
