I spend each and every morning reading my political journals and environmental newsletters to make sure that I am in the loop. There are days that make me very anxious for our children’s future and then there are days, such as today, that I think that there is hope for us yet. My hubby came home today, he surprised me with Chinese food, he got me Moo Shoo pork, my favorite, and after we had dinner, my hubby put on David Letterman. Former Vice-President Al Gore was his guest and to hear Al Gore knowledgeably challenge all the common misconceptions that David Letterman was lobbing at him was a gift. It’s so nice to be properly entertained, given hopeful information and realize that not all is lost when the excellent David letterman applies his power for good.
Al Gore and David Letterman spent their whole interview period speaking to the evils of fracking, oil and gas exploitation and the benefits of solar, wind, the new generation of batteries, geothermal energy and other alternative sources. It was a breath of fresh air to hear studied discussion between two civic minded gentlemen. It made me so happy and hopeful to think that the size of David Letterman’s audience could have an impact in changing perceptions and attitudes. Each person’s actions can make a difference. We could if we all applied ourselves do something meaningful for our global environment.
What is Moo Choo pork?

Moo Shoo pork is a dish that is served with rice flour pancakes, usually four, so that you spoon the mixture into a pancake and make it a little packet that you eat with your fingers. The dish is sauteed thin slivers of pork, shredded Chinese cabbage, sliced button mushrooms, shredded carrots and sliced egg pancake in a delicious sauce of chicken stock, Chinese Hoisin sauce (plum sauce) a small amount of corn starch, a little soy sauce and some rice wine. When you take your pancake you spread a little bit of the hoisin sauce on the pancake and put a little bit of the mixture and off you go to delicious heaven.

I also wondered that.
Is it any surprise the world’s in a state when intelligent people focus on the mundane instead of the absolutely vital to our planet? 😀

Hear, hear. I figure as long as I try to do my part and I know that there are even more who are even more committed, then every drop in the bucket should do some good.:)
Each person’s actions do make a difference, for better or for worse.
Interesting post 🙂
Thank you. I find the environment to be an important subject.:)
