Older Americans go everywhere by plane, car, train or bus. Wherever we go, we use power made from coal, oil and gas that takes centuries to develop. The emissions generate carbon dioxide that, in turn, goes into the air we breathe. The gases then form what's called the "greenhouse effect" that overheats our environment. If the current pace of using fossil fuels continues, many scientists warn, we'll be in store for unwanted consequences: oceans rising, ... [full story]

TORQUAY, England - It wasn't until my 10th visit to London that I finally saw Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap," the world's longest-running play.

Now in its 55th year, with over 22,500 performances, the whodunit still remains a big tourist draw, with the audience - about one-fourth American - sworn to secrecy not ... [full story]
