Calif. Drought And The Pope Shows The Way Out!

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog”

California has a water shortage .  It is pouring rain in Pennsylvania.

Green /solar jobs are the future of a strong economy.

So, why not design solar rail cars that can be used to transport water when it rains.  They open on the top to collect rain, ala rain barrels of yore, then when full they close and are sent to where most needed for agricultural water!! And guess what if they spill all the kids come out and play in the water!!!

It will be a huge project that will produce  many jobs- some to  create and the system others that will run the system!

=================================

Now on another subject, the Pope ( Francis that is) has it right, by sending letters to the US and Cuba offering to help resolve their disagreement he opened a window of peace that worked– where the two parties could find (and did) common ground!!

What we need are diplomatic swat teams !!

that go to countries and offer help at the first sign of trouble ie a militray conflict starting.

Retort Of The Day

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog”

On Thursday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest singled out Grassley, declaring comments he made about the Lynch vote “duplicitous.”

Asked how harsh words might help his cause, Earnest replied:

“Being nice has gotten us a 160-day delay. So maybe after they look up ‘duplicitous’ in the dictionary we’ll get a different result.”

James Baker Commends Sec. Of State John Kerry’s Negotiations So Far, On Iran Deal!

James Baker: Iran Deal is Weak, ‘Needs Work

by John Sexton17 Apr 20157
Former Secretary of State James Baker weighed in on the Iran deal Thursday night. In a piece published by the Wall Street Journal, Baker concludes the deal is weak and badly in need of work.

Baker’s piece praises Secretary Kerry for the “herculean task” of getting the negotiations this far. Nevertheless, he says Iran’s “waffling and re-trading” in four significant areas leave the deal weak.

There remain serious questions about more than the phasing out of sanctions. These include verification mechanisms (including access to Iran’s military bases for inspections); the “snapback” provisions for reapplying sanctions; and Iran’s refusal so far to provide historical information about its nuclear-enrichment program so that there is a baseline against which to measure any future enrichment.

Baker believes the deal can be saved by rallying the P5+1 to “to support non-negotiable positions on the four outstanding questions.” In other words, the U.S. should make clear there is no wiggle room on any of these points and pressure allies to back them up.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The point is negotiations can work and peace between Iran and the US can be our future.
