I’m in the same boat as the rest of America. I’m fairly smart, read newspapers, magazines, blogs and listen to radio talk show hosts, although these are generally more entertainment, and just as extreme as newspapers. So I’m just about as informed as, again, the rest of us. I support drilling in ANWR (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge), off-shore, and (almost) anywhere else we have oil, for a lot of reasons I’ll try to explain, in hopes you’ll read this and actually think about it rather than just fast-forwarding to mad, or mindlessly applauding.

If George W. Bush is reelected as president of the United States on Nov. 2, he will have another four years to continue to undo the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act. When first elected, Mr. Bush promised to ban carbon dioxide, a noxious gas which is spewed into the atmosphere when fossil fuels are burned. But he backed away from that ban, a move that was documented in a recent PBS report on "NOW with Bill Moyers." Which means that you and I-all of us-are stuck with breathing dirty, unhealthy air, and maybe getting asthma or lung disease.

Letters to the Editor Deaths on ’Crest trivialized by writer [Re: “Reader’s take on ’Crest crashes, Our Readers Write, Dec. 13] I was disappointed to see in the Valley Sun letters to the editor one that trivialized the tragic deaths of those that have not the maturity to respect the danger associated with the thrill of challenging curves with limited sight lines on Angeles Crest Highway. Once again that author’s thought processes mystify me. — Gray Berg, La Cañada Flintridge Grocery shop with tote bags in hand This is a plea for us all to take direct — but simple — action and use tote bags instead of paper or plastic when we shop this Thursday, Dec. 20. That’s to be “A Day Without a Bag,” something developed by Heal the Bay and other groups for Los Angeles and other municipalities.

With a shortage of fossil fuels, calls for more independence from foreign oil and the warning we may have the hottest summer on record consumers are turning to alternative energy. A group of La Cañada investors are hoping that those consumers will be looking to the sun for their energy needs and have started a business called Phat Energy. "There is a growing trend of consumers taking charge of their [energy] lives," said Philippe Hartley, spokesperson for Phat Energy and a La Cañada resident.

Whether the recent heat wave that La Cañada Flintridge residents suffered through is caused by global warming or a natural cyclical event, the push is now on reducing greenhouse gases and using energy-efficient technology. On July 31, Britain’s Prime Minister Tony Blair and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced a climate change and clean energy collaboration. At a meeting at the Port of Long Beach, Blair and Schwarzenegger signed an agreement on a collaborative effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through working with businesses, research in cause and effect, education and sharing knowledge.

It's a climate puzzle that has vexed scientists for more than a decade and added fuel to the arguments of those who insist man-made global warming is a myth. Since just before the start of the 21st century, the Earth's average global surface temperature has failed to rise despite soaring levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases and years of dire warnings from environmental advocates, the Los Angeles Times reported. Now, as scientists with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change gather in Sweden this week to approve portions of the IPCC's fifth assessment report, they are finding themselves pressured to explain this glaring discrepancy.

This Saturday it is time for La Cañada closet hippies to join with fellow soul mates across the country in a spiritual connection with Mother Earth. Activists will brush off the tie dye clothing, bring out the flowers and hold a quiet, peaceful demonstration in honor of the world we live on as we celebrate Earth Day at a time when global warming is becoming a grave concern to many. La Cañada High School students will be running Friday to increase the supply of oxygen to the planet in their Rain Forest Run, benefiting the Rain Forest Institute and Green Club.
