JW: Yes, water being a precious resource. I think it's well, in that sense also, that climate change, it's the entire planet.From any other country, possibly effecting what's happening in California. So, I think we're all in this together, as I said, unless we figure out a way to keep everything working as it should -- protecting the forests especially, protecting the coast land marine environment, I think we're going to be in for probably a bit more of this. Unfortunately, I don't have an answer or solution, if I did, I'd certainly share it with you, but I think we're in trouble.
If you had a real answer, you might get the Nobel prize, instead of the ?green? Nobel prize. [laughter from group] But any of our other guests like to add anything? Marilyn Baptiste or Howard Wood to that?
Well, from someone coming from Scotland that has very high rainfall, the situation in California is very disturbing.
It's dire, I've learned over the last couple of weeks. We have no shortage of water, to us it's a matter of keeping it clean. But what we do see is that global warming is definitely affecting everyday lives of people on my island. Because we have much more severe storms, we have much more severe rainfalls, and the severe storms affect everyday life. We're reliant on a ferry that runs five times a day, and this winter, there have been numerous weeks where the ferry has been canceled for two to three days. So food doesn't reach the island, your mail doesn't reach the island, and this is two, three times more destructive than it was five, six years ago.
