Notwithstanding the above, I spent a majority of the time presenting solutions. Everyday solutions for individuals and complete solutions for corporations. These solutions range from Basement to Attic, from Appliances to Water Use, from Composting to Recycling, from Photovoltaic Solar Cells to Geothermal, from foregoing what is in vogue to taking the right actions as individuals. The end result saves us all Money, Energy, Water, Air, our Health, and our world's environment. All while living happier and without any sacrifices. I cited my own actions over the past thirty years that are slowly, but surely, directing me to Going True Green someday.
Having a positive stewardship to our world and ourselves has no negative pitfalls. I had previously posted some blogs on Stewardship (June 4th and June 13, 2013 for example) and will continue to do so in the future.
At this time I extend a gracious thank you to Father Rafael Pascual, LC and Rectory Father Jesús Villagrasa, LC at the Pontifical Regina Apostolorum, Institute of Science and Faith's Masters program. Their invitation for me to speak at their week long lecture series dealing with the biotechnology and bioethical questions of Climate Change is an experience I will always cherish.
I also extend my thanks to Father Robert Blyman, MD who is both a medical doctor and psychiatrist at the North American College in Rome. His invitation to attend Sunday mass, followed by a brunch with him and the seminarians was a blessing. At brunch, conversations abounded about sharing realistic sustainable solutions not only for our own families, friends, and workplaces, but also for the world's environment.
Finally, I must thank all the seminarians, Brothers, Sisters, professors and guests, at both institutions for allowing me an audience. Their spirits, enthusiastic approach and smiles are inspiring.These young people bring hope to our world.
