Couldn’t resist aiming my news camera at a beautiful full Moon Wednesday evening. Earlier my dog Newsey and I took a walk through parts of Forest Park – the moonlight so brilliant that we had no trouble making our way along the paths which otherwise would have been perfectly pitch black.
You can see from all those meteor impact craters on the Moon’s surface that we owe our very existence to the thin layer of air that coats our Earth and which deflects and burns up similar rogue celestial bodies that make landfall with anything in their way. Our atmosphere is not a toy nor something to be trifled with. It’s not a limitless trash can. We must care for our atmosphere as it cares for us. Nothing less than doing the right thing will do.
