Love this conversation and the links. I have had the wonderful experience of scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, one of the most fragile environments. I would hate for that to be any more harmed than it already has been. I am trying in my daily life to lessen my impact on the environment in every way that I can. I feel lucky to live in California where the environment is taken much more seriously than in some other parts of the USA.

I am hoping that our USA political situation will change so that our leaders will want to protect and nourish the environment.
