Dear Friends,

Many of you will have seen the Guardian newspaper article by Kevin Rusby: We want to keep our Forest: Why Guyana’s Wilderness Needs Visitors and his wonderful descriptions of trees festooned with ferns, creepers and orchids; of a jungle full of treasures and jewel-like birds in splendid emerald and sapphire livery.  It’s impossible to read it without feeling nostalgic for Guyana.            Continue reading

My Poetry Corner November 2019 features the poem “Silent Warrior” (Silêncio Guerreiro) by Márcia Wayna Kambeba, the artistic name of Márcia Vieira da Silva, an indigenous Brazilian poet, geographer, performer, and activist for indigenous rights. Born in 1979 in the village of Belém do Solimões in the northern Brazilian state of Pará, she is of Omágua Kambeba ethnicity. At eight years, she moved with her family to São Paulo de Olivença—once the largest settlement of the Kambeba people—in Amazonas. Today, she lives in the city of Belém, capital of Pará.

Environment: Plastic Pollution: Coca-Cola Nasty Plastic Problem + Video

  – Sandrine Rigaud | DW

 By 2050, there could be more plastic than fish in the sea. Ten tons of plastic are produced every second.

Sooner or later, a tenth of that will end up in the oceans. Coca-Cola says it wants to do something about it – but does it really?

In January 2018, Coca-Cola made an ambitious announcement:

Is Urgency over the need to curb Global Warming finally taking hold? – By Mohamed Hamaludin

Urgency over the need to curb global warming seems to be finally taking hold

– By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

Republicans have unique perspectives on global warming, the accelerated overheating of the planet by carbon dioxide emissions which poses an existential threat to the human race.

Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe once held up a snowball in the Senate in 2015 as proof that the planet is not getting hotter. Illinois Congressman John Shimkus, an evangelical Christian, cited God’s promise to Noah in Genesis 8:21 never again to destroy the world by flooding. Utah Senator Mike Lee said the answer is to have more babies. Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson said “civilization thrives” in warmer climate. William Harper, senior National Security Council director, said, “The demonization of carbon dioxide is just like the demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler.” And Florida Senator Rick Scott, while governor, banned all state agencies from using the terms “climate change” and “global warming.”            Continue reading
