War Against the Invisible...

My computer has been stalling out again.  I write this as my browser shows a dead white screen.  Postponed possible trek another day.  Endured major fatigue, etc., bout.  Trying to stabilise sleeping schedule.  Awoke at 11:pm w/ invisible frontal/left migraine which I am negotiating.  Said fuck it and got up and got more Kombucha and nuts.  I sure know how to live.

Regenerative Economy: Key for Humanity's Future

10 Principles for Measuring Regenerative Economy
10 Principles for Measuring Regenerative Economy

"Regenerative Economy" is our key to restoring ecosystems and unfold humanity's dormant potentials. To sustain humanity into the future, we MUST learn to become good stewards of mother earth and of one another..."unity with nature" will benefit all.

In a new book, ‘The Future We Choose,’ two of the negotiators of the Paris climate agreement envision the future we could live in if the world comes together to fight climate change.

What the world could look like in 2050 if we do everything right on climate

This is an excerpt from the new book The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis, by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac, who led negotiations for the United Nations in 2015’s Paris climate agreement. The book lays out two plausible scenarios for the year 2050: What happens if we fail to meet the targets of the Paris agreement, and what life is like if we succeed. This excerpt is the latter. You can read an interview with the authors here.

It is 2050. We have been successful at halving emissions every decade since 2020. We are heading for a world that will be no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius warmer by 2100.

In most places in the world, the air is moist and fresh, even in cities. It feels a lot like walking through a forest, and very likely this is exactly what you are doing. The air is cleaner than it has been since before the Industrial Revolution.

Now that you have the time, you can watch this movie! Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World (2012) is actually not a great movie on several scores.  I dislike some parts of it.  But there are a few good laughs, and I always want to cry at two specific points.  It's a movie have been able to watch several times.  Stars an odd coupling of Steve Carell and Keira Knightly.  How would you act if you knew the world was soon to end?

You can follow the movie 'along with me' if you go to this post.
