We at Dapwood are seriously concerned about our atmospheric future. Everyday we see examples of global climate change. The Southwest is in the middle of a major drought, the Midwest and East are being blasted by polar vortices, the South is stricken with ice storms and super storms, and the West is being hit with mud slides. We see dramatic changes occurring rapidly in a lifetime. Luckily, we are not alone and there are facts to document these trends.
The Union of Concerned Scientists, a science-based advocacy organization with a history of studying the ecological, economic, and public health impacts of climate change – is organizing a business leaders round table. Because of Dapwood’s leading business efforts on a balanced triple bottom line, Dapwood Furniture has been invited to this round table taking place on March 28th, 2014. The forum will provide background information on how climate change is driving some of the extreme weather events we face, analysis of the economic impact of these events, and a space to discuss solutions.
We are looking forward to this wonderful opportunity with other thought leaders and will provide insight on what the future may bring.
Another El Santuario de Chimayo photo. This sculpture is riddled with (dark) questions for me.
Why is the Native American dressed in Plains Indians’ dress?
Why is the Native American so much shorter than the European looking man?
Why are the Native American’s arms in the air? Surrender? Worship?
Why is the Native American’s hand missing?
On a trip to northern New Mexico, we stopped at El Santuario de Chimayo. It is said the holy dirt has cured cancer, infertility, and other afflictions. I was simply hoping it would help with my lingering flu bug!
