My thoughts on climate change and the endless acquisition of wealth. I know that in the short term there will be huge upheavals in humanity all over this planet. People in many areas and countries will suffer horribly, and most governments, especially ours, will do little or nothing to prevent it. They will, in fact, seek to exploit it for greater wealth. Ice free sea lanes in the Arctic Ocean to gain access to resources is an example of this. On the less depressing side, I also know that humanity will survive the climate change. Sea levels will rise, and low-lying cities and countries will suffer and be abandoned, but new cities will be built. Come to terms with it: the government won’t do anything to prevent it. So position yourself and your children to be able to deal with it and survive. There will always be a future.
In this video, I have turned myself into a Chac Mool, an ancient Mayan rain god. He is always depicted with a bowl on his belly for the blood sacrifices to ensure the annual rains. Look it up. Is this cultural appropriation? Of course. But the point is, the Mayan civilization of a thousand years ago is long gone, but the Mayan people continue to flourish in Mexico and Central America, a pesar de todas las broncas, desatres y oportunidades de la historia. Adelante!
