A NEW WORLD
Now that 2016 is here, it’s time to view the world not as it was, or what we might want it to be—but what it has become.
Every person on our planet must finally open their eyes to climate change and actively protect Mother Earth so life in our world can survive. Climate change is not a fictional concept or a science fiction fantasy. It is our now reality.
Some say it’s too late.
But with action, maybe we can slow down some of the devastation and hope that enlightened humans will find ways to off set some of the worst damage to our home.
We have to listen.
Maybe the destruction can’t be reversed, but maybe we can take the necessary steps to cope with it and hope to survive.
Renewable energy is there for us and has been for a long time. Now we have to tuck moneyed interests aside and try to save life on earth.
All of us have to stop murdering animals. To the people who kill other living beings for sport—you are not conservationists, you are murderers. That you see no value in other beings is the kind of fallacy that will destroy all humans as well. We cannot afford to act solely as individuals. Every one of us is woven into a continuum of life. We belong to each other.
All living things matter.
Stop destroying plant life for commercial gain. The forests are not only beautiful, they give you the air you breathe. If you think we can somehow manufacture air to survive—forget it.
Without the oxygen the forests and plant life provide, we no longer exist. Earth will become a dead rock among the lifeless gazillions floating in the vastness of an endless universe.
When will we learn to live in peace? When will we stop trying to dominate each other with our religions, our land grabs, our energy dominance, our political differences.
Keep in mind that the primary elections are this spring—it’s time to weed out the flat earth society members. We have to leave the past behind, think about our tomorrows.
The internet has shown every one of us what the whole world is like in an instant. It’s not a pretty picture.
Do we need to crumble and totally fall apart before we get the message?
We have to care about what happens across the world—we are wrapped around each other in one way or another. We are all a part of the wheel of life.
We can make 2016 a real beginning.
Work for universal harmony, peace, and respect for every life form.
We can make every year a HAPPY NEW YEAR

In This Fast-Paced Political Thriller:
Washington politicians and U.S. healthcare executives are conspiring in a sinister cost-cutting scheme to legalize selective euthanasia for the seriously ill and dying, primarily for the poor and powerless.
If secret legislation can slip through the quagmire of Congress, it will diminish the annual deficit by billions, if not trillions; catapult corporate healthcare profits; and get an unpopular President re-elected.
What the powerbrokers don’t anticipate is an in-your-face, militant seniors advocacy group becoming suspicious and hires an aggressive, semi-retired investigative journalist to expose the behind-the scenes manipulations.
The deadline: Seven days.
Can Ted Yost stop the power brokers? Or will arson, attempted murder, blackmail, and kidnapping stop him?
Some Reviews of THE KILLING VOTE:
Ambition, greed, hypocrisy—and murder. Bette and JJ Lamb have taken the battle over medical care and fashioned a droll, lightning-paced political thriller with more plot twists than Washington has scoundrels. I thought of the great Ross Thomas as I hummed through the pages. Prepare to laugh–and get ripping mad.
Writer & Teacher
“The Killing Vote starts off with a bang, literally, and never lets up. Bette Golden Lamb and J.J. Lamb pull no punches in highlighting behind the scenes politics. Gripping.”

“…I don’t want to spoil anyone’s enjoyment of the book, so let me say that I locked all the doors and turned on all the lights in the house then stayed up all night reading.
