Women conductors are no longer the rarest form of musical Earthling

After centuries of gender discrimination and a terrible time until even the late 20th century, women conductors are no longer the rarest form of musical Earthling. I followed the subject for decades during the bad old times, and have noticed that San Francisco tends to value ability more than gender. Indeed, today the San Francisco Opera has Eun Sun Kim as its music director and a third of San Francisco Symphony’s guest conductors are women. This is still not equality, but certainly progress.

We Earthlings: Gas-Powered Yard Tool CO2 Emissions

Did you know that a gas-powered lawnmower emits 88 pounds of CO2 annually? The other gas-powered two-stroke engines used in yard tools, such as blowers and trimmers, contribute yet more CO2. Gas-powered lawn and garden tools contributed between 24% and 45% of the non-road gasoline emissions in the United States. By making the switch to electric yard tools, you and your neighbors can make a bigger difference in the battle against global warming.
