Humanness compromised

The sea with its bounty and balance does not become less private although it belongs to everyone else. Nor the sky that washes us with sunlight and moonlight, the scent of flowers and the song of birds. Nor the great forests that roll over our land feeding and sheltering all sentient life. Nor the massive rivers that flow from them, through them, out of them, satiating the thirsts of our lands and our lives. In our folly, we claimed personal ownership of that which belongs to all. We privatized that which is publically private. The land dried. Beings died. In our madness, we continue. In our derangement, we watch all things fail. All things fall. In our estrangement from humanness, even as we walk this dusty road to doom, compelled by forces of our own creation, fed by our greed, fear and ignorance, we shall still, stubbornly call our great machination of destruction? civilization.

A January 2022 report by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), one of the world’s most cited and comprehensive multidisciplinary scientific journals says that there may be approximately...

Earth Day 2022

The calls are increasingly more strident. The IPCCs AR6 report was a damning indictment of our collective failure to preserve things without which we shall all die. For the first time, we are now calling climate change ANTHROPOGENIC climate change and the deniers are left bereft after years of battling to keep their own comfort zones as the truth when...

El Niño is hell bent on severely disrupting Sri Lanka’s already hammered economy!

Back in May 2023, I reported on the spike in ocean temperatures and issued our own warning to the people to get ready for a good old climate face-punch/kidney sock/kick to the nether human regions.  I doubt that warning had any effect. In Sri Lanka, we try to stop things after those things have stopped hitting us and gone on to...

Water Water Everywhere… but…?

Even as I write, the UN’s first water conference in an entire generation is into its first formal session after a day of side events at the UNHQ, NYC, USA. That the water issue is top of the heap of world threatening crises is a given. On one side it is a crisis in itself, on another side it is...

Going…going…gone…

First, we thought that the earth was at the center of the universe. Next, we knew that sun is at the center of that small sliver of the universe we might call our own. Now? Now we believe, each and every one of us, that we are, individually, the center of every universe.   We have gone from geocentricity to...
