We've relocated from Houston to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands because, after twenty-two years, the pollution in Houston was making both my husband and me physically ill. I still maintain the corporate headquarters for my company in Houston and when I go back for business trips, I always find that my "allergies" return and it takes me a week or so back in the wonderfully clean air of the VI to feel well again.
Y'all would be surprised to know the large numbers of Texans who have settled here in St. Thomas - almost all say it's because of the clean air and water here. I'm sitting on our veranda working on my email and the air is so clear that I can clearly see the outlines of the mountains on the island of St. Croix, over 40 miles of Caribbean Ocean away! For a comparison, the visibility in Houston today is about 10 miles.
I am joining the online community in hopes that we can all help to make Houston (and other cities on the mainland) more livable again.

Open invitation to all concerned with combat of climate change...
As you may know, I care very deeply about climate change and adaptation planning for Houston-Galveston.
I would like to invite you to join my group at the 1Sky campaign. It's
a new online community uniting concerned citizens in our neighborhood,
and across the country, to push for bold federal climate legislation.
I hope to see you at one of our events soon!
