Happy Valentines Day from the JAZ Farm! What a strange week. I went to a client’s house up in the mountains at about 10,000 feet and after the meeting walking to my truck I fell and landed flat on my back. The clients didn’t see it thank goodness but I had to kind of crawl myself to the truck and get in and feel all of my back muscles knot up. I spent the next day pretty horizontal and sore.
Yesterday, Thursday, I had to have some oral surgery done. Of course, after the anesthesia wears off, one quickly finds where the bruises are. The pain radiating into my right ear has been very entertaining. Fortunately, I have been staying stoned and numb on Percocets and Advil. Happy Valentines Day indeed. I will be making a heart shaped pizza for dinner! About as romantic as I’m getting this year.
So with not much else to do I watched a bunch of You Tube videos and ran across one of a professor and Facebook friend who gave a talk on climate change at The University of Colorado. Again, another uplifting thing to do as he is talking about human extinction. When you have kids, or grandkids, this is something that will certainly give you pause.
This is Guy McPherson, Professor Emeritus from The University of Arizona. He held a position as a professor of Evolutionary Biology and left a tenured position to leave the grid and homestead in New Mexico. He walks the walk and talks the talk and no…. he isn’t making a ton of money off of preaching climate change issues. Give this a listen, if you have any capacity for open-mindedness and can understand that most people who are issuing warnings about our world are not extremists, just those who have had the powers that be attempt to silence them, then this talk could change your life.
