Time Out For Some Good News

 While most of the nation struggles with 100 degree temperatures, stresses over the inability of politicians to prevent financial collapse, and marvels over the ways that some leaders avoid addressing Global Warming––perhaps a bit of good news will give some relief.   Well for one thing, private companies across the country are not only aware of Global Warming, they are working on ways to avoid letting the evils of climate change interfere with their businesses.  Other companies are working on less expensive and more serviceable uses of solar power.

 Writing for Climate Science Links, Lori Tripoli reveals that, although most large corporations are keeping their plans for adjustments to Global Warming under wraps, they are making plans nonetheless.  “As climate change worsens, some leading U.S. corporations are working to find ways to adapt to higher sea levels and other unavoidable effects fueled by warming that they say will deal a big blow to their bottom lines.”  Companies such as Entergy Corporation, on the Fortune 500 list and the second largest supplier of nuclear energy, privately admit that their operations are very vulnerable to Global Warming.  Entergy is working with government officials in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas and a non-profit foundation named “America’s WETLAND Foundation,”  to help communities on the Gulf Coast  make plans for coming disasters such as coast-line erosion and increasing sea-levels.

 Val Marmillion, Foundation Director, argues that their coordinated efforts try to avoid political debate:  “We’re in the reality, and not into the debate.”  He argues  that the sea-level rise is not a political issue:  “The Gulf Coast is deteriorating at a very rapid rate.”  Hurricane Katrina shutting down its corporate offices and drowning two of its natural gas plants brought huge wake up calls to Entergy.
 
 The other good news?  Greenbang.com announced that Kyocera Corporation has designed a multi-purpose solar powered shelter that cities and companies can use for bus and taxi stops, walkways, convenient electrical charges for advertising displays, mobile phones, computers, etc., and also as emergency shelter.  It should also be able to charge electric cars.  And this solar powered marvel could also sell its excess energy to local power companies.   Called The Eco-Shell, the product’s manufacturers will unveil its marketing program starting this week!

 It is good to know that––unlike politicians pinging their fiddles while Global Warming burns the nation––a few people correctly view and react to nature’s signals. Bible prophecies in Ezekiel 33: 6 make it clear that if those responsible for protecting a nation don’t do so, judgment comes against them:  “But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”
