MAUI TOURS

The road to Hana is filled with an amazing variety of things to do. Our Incredible Journey to Hana takes you beyond Hana into the National Park at Oheo Gulch, home of the Seven Pools. Considered one of the best road to Hana tours in Maui because of the opportunity to go into the National Park, swim in a cool mountain pool, be awed by 200 foot waterfalls and hike up to an amazing bamboo forest. A Maui tour with Valley Isle Excursions is one that you will never forget.

MIND NUMBING NUMBERS
by Jeff Stark



Getting a handle on environmental issues requires having some access to and familiarity with numbers. In order to deal with global warming we need to know how many units - tons, or pounds or some other generally accepted means of measuring - are produced every day, every year, every decade. Without knowing the numbers, the relevant facts, it is hard to convince people of the need for action. Numbers are also universal. A gallon of gasoline, or better yet, biodiesel, in Portland, Oregon is exactly the same as in the Isle of Portland in England. Because of this we can communicate globally and share our information, opinions and ideas with our fellow global citizens.

View from space shows the scope of the fires For those of us who are interested in and involved in environmentalism the numbers that are most important are those that are derived from science. Climate science is a well established discipline. It features scientific data generated by a combination of relatively low-tech data gathering such as daily reading and reporting of temperatures. In some cases the scientific data record goes back to 1850. In other cases, such as satellite imaging of global weather patterns, the methods are much more complex and expensive. Either way the key is following the scientific method and producing and sharing valid data. By and large we trust science and accept the data as presented. CLICK HERE FOR MORE
