One of the joys in life—real joy, mind you—is to know to whom to go for information you’d like but don’t have. Certainly googling can help. However, if you want the most balanced and well-considered “take,” go to someone.
For me, there are many areas in which my interest far exceeds my knowledge, let alone wisdom. Not to list the plethora [love that word!] but two areas are of interest.
You’d guess the first one…learn more from fishing guides. That’s uncompromised and unrelenting.
The other is to learn something about Climate Change. One of the specific areas in which my knowledge is beneath the surface [both reality and metaphor] is in coal. Turns out the best go-to guy is a fishing buddy and one of those whom I could blame if the novels didn’t flow correctly [e.e. an editor!]. He is retired from a coal-mining company. He knows. He really knows. One of my questions has to do with “clean coal.” My friend’s take is the economic risk is considerable for that to happen comet-speed. However, this morning he sent me an article that brings helpful information. I link it, in case you’re interested. If not and you’re more interested in fishing, talk to me in a week. For then I’ll know quite a bit more about how to catch the fish-delicacy…called a Spring Chinook Salmon.
