Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

Energy News

I came across a link on YouTube this morning and clicked to watch. The  video is of a talk given by one of the co-founders of Greenpeace. He outlines his history in Greenpeace taking his own history back to growing up in Winter Harbor, a remote village on the northwest shore of Vancouver Island off the coast of British Columbia. His name is Patrick Moore.
You've no doubt heard, even recently, that carbon dioxide threatens to destroy life as we know it, in large part because of once Vice President Al Gore's movie. We've heard that there is no debate, science now knowing all the facts we need to impede carbon consumption regardless of the impact on civilization. We've no doubt very recently heard or read that 97% of scientists are in agreement.
Then there are people like this:

Anyone Can Be President

In the United States, can anyone be elected President or are we represented by a ruling class? If it's the ruling class thing, which in most people's minds it seems to be, then what disqualifies the Trump family from that class of people? What makes them unqualified? What disqualifies me? For that matter what disqualifies you or your children or grandchildren or anybody else that you know or are related to?

Nine Eleven Soda

Recently I have been asking myself why nobody talks about how when you watch the videos of the Twin Towers falling down you see all these plumes of material arching upward, then outward, then downward. What could possibly cause such a seemingly impossible phenomenon in the strictly gravitational collapse of such a heavy structure? Shouldn't everything be going down instead of up? Gravity makes things fall down, not up. Explosions make things "blow up".

The answer must be an obvious one since nobody talks about it. I was watching this video this morning on YouTube and this is by far the best video I have seen showing these arching plumes yet the narrator doesn't mention their initially upward trajectory.

So I have to conclude that the answer must be so simple it would just not even dawn on anybody that an explanation is necessary, that some mindless nitwit like me wouldn't just automatically know what these things are from.

Well after thinking about it all day it finally dawned on me. There are so many of these things blowing up it must be from something that would be everywhere throughout the building and that would, when crushed, explode. Bearing in mind that this was some sixteen years ago, what else could it possibly be from other than the crushing of all the Coke and Pepsi machines?
