Re: Rivers and Tides Video

Ed, When I see something like this it makes me sad. It seems that often people are inspired by impressively large trees to cut them down. When nature inspires people to make changes in it as opposed to respecting and preserving and understanding it, I find this disturbing. There are many people who ...
