Aloha Mixed Plate
“In the early days of the sugar plantations, lunch was a simple affair. Plantation workers gathered in the fields for their mid-day meal. The Japanese laborers would bring teriyaki beef with rice and pickled vegetables. Seated next to them might be their Filipino neighbors with the traditional dish adobo or perhaps a pork or chicken stew. The Koreans had their kalbi or marinated ribs and the Chinese a rice noodle and vegetable dish called chow fun. Hawaiians were known for their kalua pig, roasted in an underground oven called an imu. It wasn’t long before they began to share their foods with one another and the “mixed plate” was born.

Unfortunately, environmental advocates have recently been disappointed by many of the things that our new president and his minions have done in response to global environmental problems. Two recent actions illustrate ...MORE.

FIGHTING FAKE NEWS


If President Elect Trump thinks he's going to just walk into the White House, sit down with his new EPA hating EPA administrator and figure out how to get rid of all those pesky environmental regulations, he's got another think coming. If he thinks repealing a few of President Obama's Executive Orders is going to stop the enormous worldwide clean renewable energy revolution then he's got much more than another think coming.

He also has facts and figures to contend with. The fact is, the years and years of hard work by renewable energy advocates, entrepreneurs, government and citizens is paying off handsomely and MORE ...

DENYING DENIERS


Climate change deniers often buttress their basic argument against climate change science by claiming that an increase in atmospheric CO2 will make Earth greener. Their reasoning revolves around the fact that plants "breathe" in CO2 and "breathe" out oxygen. In addition, the deniers theorize that more plants will remove more CO2, and pollution. This will, according to this hypothesis, reduce the effects of the existing amound, and projected growth, in these gases. In this view, the more greenhouse gases we release into the atmosphere the better. ... MORE ...-->
