Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

Firefighters are Working to Save the Largest Trees in the World

California firefighters have been working to save the largest tree in the world (and others) from fire. They’ve wrapped the base of the giant sequoia in an aluminum fire-resistant blanket. Saving this great grandparent tree with an extensive underground support network will help the overall well being of the forest if fire does come. I’ll be looking for updates, but for now, here’s an article from NBC news. This article from The Good News Network, seems hopeful and reports that sprinklers are going most of the time. I send deep gratitude and prayers to all firefighters and support teams.

  1. Man, you find some great stories. Well done!

  2. All good news! I found Norway’s fight against false body advertising of special interest.

    • I agree. Norway’s law appeals to me. I know some people would complain that it takes away freedom of speech/press/etc., but it’s really about honesty. Let’s be real!
