“Whatcha’ cooking, honey?”
“Oh nothing…..just the planet!”
This petroglyph deep in the middle of the Navajo Reservation always intrigued me. Very few non-native people have been to this location, and I feel fortunate to have witnessed the land and its people. My interpretation of this rock art has always been that the planet was being cooked. Did our previous culture know what mankind was about to do to the planet?
It seemed just a short time ago that it was only Al Gore and a handful of scientists warning us of global warming and the actions we needed to take to reverse this trend. Even if Washington DC and large corporations still behave as though we’re living a century ago, large numbers of people have taken to the streets to demand change. There are many cities throughout the US that have adopted clean energy policies, and society’s awakening gives me a feeling of gratitude.
