Earth Day Rainbow



Late yesterday afternoon it rained here in the San Francisco Bay Area.  This is a fairly uncommon event for this time of the year.  We had a pretty wet winter and reservoirs from the Golden Gate up north are full thanks to the El Nino. 

Yesterday was Earth Day and the planet added another 100 million metric tons of CO2 to the atmosphere.  Mother Nature wanted to remind the Green Machine that there is still some hope to slow down this madness.  That is why I believe when I looked out the window over the lagoon I saw the photo of the rainbow that is above.

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole  (Bruddah Iz) added this verse from A Wonderful World to his Somewhere Over The Rainbow:
Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
I'll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The photo shows the green tree on the left that my daughter climbed as a kid.  She is long grown up now.  The lagoon is the place she learned to swim.  I remember fondly the times she was a child in our care.  The photo was taken from the dining table where we were celebrating Passover Seder.  Yes Earth Day and Passover coincided yesterday.

Passover is the celebration of Freedom.  Bruddah Iz also dreamed of sovereignty for Native Hawaiians.  Maybe the Rainbow was a message from Bruddah Iz or maybe it was just a fluke that rain and sunshine happened to occur in the right spot at the right moment?  Either way I know that Louis Armstrong who is noted for A Wonderful World was an African American who became part of a Jewish family.




So maybe it was Satchmo who sent us that rainbow to tell us Happy Passover?   For sure the message of the rainbow is that we have a wonderful world and it is high time to deploy real science and real engineering solutions to reduce and end emissions and pollution.  We need a Budding Red Rose Solution not a Wilted Bloom Box Greenwash.  Mostly we need much more brotherhood and a lot less anti-Semitism, racism, stupidity, greed, lies, greenwashing, corruption, and hatred.

Peace and Chag Sameach
