On little Block Island we believe in magic. Everything is magical—the seasons, the tides, the winds, the stars—until science comes up with a theory and proofs to explain the phenomenon. ( Belief in that which cannot yet be proven is faith. Science and faith can coexist, uneasily. I prefer to keep an open mind.) Many magical mysteries remain, but climate change is not one of them. As the polar ice melts,  islands will grow ever smaller. Some will vanish entirely, along with my little piece of heaven. That is fact. Can you wonder that islanders all over the world support science-based action?
