Have you read the tealeaves lately? The planet is reeling from lack of attention. I's on the verge of coma. We need a weekly column about the vision of a Sustainable future here in the Sonoran desert. Have you looked up and around lately? The pressure must pick up now on the politicians or they go. We need immediate solutions put to the state, surrounding counties and Tucson and its surrounding towns. They must move forward with plans or we will demand their resignation.
The public at large is ignorant as hell about the lack of public and private movement toward a solution to carbon emissions by our own Tucson Electric and Arizona as a whole but they aren't stupid. They're choking, eating Frankenstein foods over-loaded with pesticides and artificial fertilizers.
Up in Gila Bend, the world's largest Concentrating Solar Thermal plant is being built by the Spanish for APS - 280 megawatts. Why is that? It's a disgrace for a thinking and conscious desert people to be so unconnected from an on-going emergency alert as our clear skies change from deep blue to pale and our air fills with dirty CO2 emissions. What are we doing about raising awareness of the current environmental crisis?
Tucson Weekly needs an Environmental Crisis writer with a visceral feel for the devastation going on and out of control on a world-wide basis. People are scared and they aren't sure why. The information is not getting out with the pathetic newspapers here and local radio dropping the ball, even usually responsible KXCI. KXCI and Tucson Weekly need to partner together to get the fire needed under the officials to make 'em sweat over their safe careers if they don't deliver.
Back to the CST in Gila Bend. It's Arizona's first. Do you know, sir, that this energy producing concept is the Jewel of the Soutwest, the answer to supplanting coal, oil, gas and nuclear worldwide and its prototype is here. Hear must be put on the ubiquitous progenitors of the very poisons that are killing us each and every day. Let's get this this information out to the public. The Concentrating Solar Thermal plants produce over 1 gigawatt of energy per unit - enough energy to light 500,000 homes with each plant and for decades or even centuries using mainly, only steel, glass and labor to build and people to staff it as its runs on the sun.
I'll write it. You pay it and together we will put The Tucson Weekly on the map as the mover and shaker problem solver and lightning rod for Solar and Sustainable answers to anxious citizens.

I love you Carol Ann and all that you have meant to the spiritual life of desert mystics. Divine Casbah survives. Light force sees all people here now, compassionately. The Casbah has been attacked on a dimension that defies explanation. So it goes and life is too short. Let the music continue.
