The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption by Dahr Jamail

Three Worlds One Vision

The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption is a work of investigative journalism by Dahr Jamail, conducted during the period April 2016 to July 2017 on the front lines of human-caused climate disruption. Having lived in Alaska for ten years (1996-2006), Jamail had witnessed the dramatic impact of global warming on the glaciers there.

Jamail’s original aim was to alert readers about “the urgency of our planetary crisis through firsthand accounts of what is happening to the glaciers, forest, wildlife, coral reefs, and oceans, alongside data provided by leading scientists who study them.” His reporting took him to climate disruption hot spots in Alaska, California, Florida, and Montana in the United States; Palau in the Western Pacific Ocean; Great Barrier Reef, Australia; and the Amazon Forest in Manaus, Brazil. His grief at what was happening to nature made him realize that “only…

Eco-Tourism: The allure of Essequibo’s ‘Rising of the moon’

Lake Capoey. Essequibo Coast. Guyana

There are many ‘paradises’ on Earth. A few are in Guyana. Some are spectacular while others display nature’s simplicity. On the Essequibo Coast, between the villages of Queenstown and Little Affiance, south-west of the coastal highway, a rustic road takes you to a vista of spectacular simplicity and beauty – Lake Capoey!

The name, according to Ralph Hendricks, the village toshao, means ‘rising of the moon’ –and curiously, is said to be a Wapisiana word, for a decidedly Arawak community with a population of about 500 people. Although I’ve never seen the lake by night, an image grabs my fancy.

It’s that of a full moon rising from behind the lake’s encircling vegetation, appearing to settle there, its beams dancing on the dark, rippling surface as fiery sunset fades to night, and it is easy to see how the name might have originated. But even in the daytime, Capoey can both soothe and excite the senses.    Continue reading

Solar Panels being installed at Warakaba “Longhouse”

This has been a very busy week for the admin and support team. After leaving Moruca last Sunday we headed straight up to Warakaba (Longhouse) in the Upper Pomeroon. Sharir Chan, from Guyana Medical Relief, along with the electricians to install the wiring and solar panels accompanied us on the trip. Going up the Pomeroon River was certainly an adventure as the skies opened up and we had to huddle under the tarps for most of the journey.

Guyana Tourism: JEWEL IN THE MOUNTAINS by Dave Martins – Credits Stabroek News

JEWEL IN THE MOUNTAINS

Partly from her conservation interest and partly from her access to Air Services Limited aircraft, my wife Annette has pretty much been all over Guyana, so when she came home last week raving from a trip to Karasabai, describing it as a standout in our country, I had to pay attention.

Essentially, this is her story, I’m only doing conduit work today, so when I report that the community’s name is derived from the Macushi word ‘krasa” referring to a canister found in one of the lakes in the area, you know that she’s the source of that footnote.        Continue reading

GUYANA: Let’s go south of the Kanuku Mountains – by Francis Quamina Farrier

Let’s go south of the Kanuku Mountains – by Francis Quamina Farrier 

Here in Guyana, September is observed as “Amerindian Heritage Month”, or to be politically correct, “Indigenous Heritage Month“. And September is also a special month for Native Americans – the North American cousins of Guyana’s Indigenous Peoples. That was told to me by a Native American Elder when I interviewed him, while on one of my visits to the awesome Museum of the American Indian, located in Washington, DC, in the United States of America.

At this time in September 2018, I invite you to come with me south of the Kanuku Mountain range, which divides the North and South Rupununi Savannahs in Region 9 of the country. I know this area of our beautiful country reasonably well, having gone there on many occasions over a fifty year period and has decided to share a few of my own experiences with you.          Continue reading
