A Scientist in Wendell

Went up to Wendell to watch the Patriots trounce the Steelers. Good fun. A room heated by wood, toasty like a sauna…and a scientist who had just gotten her PhD. Her name was Heather and she wanted, actually, to go back to school some more. She is an ecologist, studing soil biodiversity. Her subject, that she feels is a big problem, is ecology and she teaches in this field. She said that the world is ignoring is the excess of nitrogen in the soil. It is being added by both man and mother nature, and this is very bad. She studies this subject and will soon study molecular micro biology at Brown University.

It is always impressive to meet people who study complicated sciences for a living, we should heed her warnings.
