Wow, has it been that long? Yes, the 1st Earth Day was 44 years ago, a whole academic career ago, and at times you wonder what was accomplished? What the frack is happening to the Clean Water Act of 1972? Well, Walt Kelly's Pogo had it right all along. Too many papers, too much field work, and other semester debris piling up too quickly to write much more. Too depressing to think about many of our pressing issues.
