"The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles … The planet isn’t going anywhere. WE are!" George Carlin
I digest another sobering rant from the master as I prepare to travel the "Icefields Parkway". This is my journey to discover the best of planet Gaia and the cultures that capture an Earth moment in time. My time is such a brief moment but I`ll try and understand it`s impact on the future of our progeny.
I rent a car in Calgary and begin a drive through the heart of Canada`s "terrestrial fantasy" starting in Banff, Alberta. Banff is gorgeous and pure but for me it`s a stepping stone to Lake Louise and the Parkway wonders.
George carves a truth to the bone but I`m thinking we adapt to Climate Change and ride this moment for all it`s worth! But, how about this day in Banff? Well let`s start from a room with a view and consider the Suzuki factor.
