As I write and talk with my wife about what I am writing, the strains of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s “Teach Your Children” run through my mind because while this is about climate change, it is also about educating our young, resetting our path, and in doing both recapturing our future from those few who would rather gorge themselves on riches than see trout where they should be and the country filled with brains that drive us forward rather than hold us back from a bright future and healthy planet.
(This post is dedicated to my father William Ramsay Ferris Sr. (1920-2015) who passed away on July 3. He taught me well.)
