    dinner to some old neighbors we had lost contact with for dinner.  His job is scheduling oil tankers all up and down the west coast.  There were about 8 other people there.  One was a former lobbyist in Alaska.  They got into a discussion about all the money that is being made in Alaska from expoloration etc.  The lobbyist said they should frack everywhere up there because there weren't any people to complain about their water.  I mentioned the concerns about climate change to the response of silence.  

    The response of humans to the ice melting in the Arctic is and will be to hasten the pillaging of the area for the minerals it holds just like Alaska.  

    Just read an article about this yesterday.
