  7. Excellent post.

    The ultimate catch 22; trapped in a cycle of perpetual ecocidal war-making over resources that are exponentially environmentally toxic. It’s a multiple jeopardy. Meanwhile the most imminent crisis for so many is ‘simply’ water.

    When will the US establishment accept the fact, that destroying the enduring viability of the one and only biosphere for the sake of prestige and power, is screaming terminal insanity?

    The Dahr Jamail interview is timely. We are suddenly finding ourselves rocketing into this ‘alien’ era where the only sane politics has suddenly become the direct consequence of over-consumption, excessive hubris, reckless aggression & unraveling climate catastrophe ~ for which the only solution is wise and innovative regenerative ecology…..mobilized on a universal scale.

    There are urgent actions that must be taken and those from which we must abstain altogether. Time is short. This is a thoroughly ‘man-made’ planetary crisis, unprecedented in human history.
