Covid-19 as a Stepping Stone Towards the Collective Rite of Passage into Adulthood that Humanity has to Undergo

Is COVID-19 a Collective Rite of Passage?

  posted in: Uncategorized |  1

Many transitions in human cultures are marked by rites of passage, such as baptisms, weddings, even funerals. And, during those transitions there is a moment when those involved are neither what they were, nor what they will become. At a wedding, the couple is not yet married, nor are they single. A child going through an adulthood ritual is not yet an adult, but is no longer a child. Even in a funer...

GRAIN NGO Informs that Industrial Livestock, not Wet Markets, Might Be Origin of Covid-19

New from GRAIN | 1 April 2020

New research suggests industrial livestock, not wet markets, might be origin of Covid-19

There is a growing body of evidence that the origin of the current Covid-19 pandemic is not a wet market in Wuhan, as has been widely claimed. We now know that tests of the animals at the market came back negative and that the first reported case and many other initial cases had no connection to this market. We also now know, thanks to a newly released analysis of the genomic s...

'Dark Waters': Forever Chemicals

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, In : Activism 
Chemical multinationals have been coming up with a number of superb pieces of lab engineering. They are 'superb' because, unlike plastics that are only very good in comparison, these are chemicals that never break down. Once released, they are on the Planet to stay through the aeons unless willingly removed by human action. That's why they are dubbed 'forever chemicals'. There are some 8 of these chemicals so far on the Planet. They are highly noxious and carcinogenic. They run freely in our ...

INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE, AGROECOLOGY, AND CLIMATE CHANGE

Contrasting practices that exacerbate climate disruption with those that build resilience and support health.

Industrial Agriculture, Agroecology, and Climate Change

Today it is becoming more and more evident that the major problems of our time — energy, the environment, climate change, food security, financial security — cannot be understood in isolation. 

They are systemic problems, which means that they are all interconnected and interdependent, and they require corresponding...

The Italian Essayist Guido Dalla Casa Aptly Urges us to Overcome Industrial Civilization

Guido Dalla Casa
Key points of Guido Dalla Casa's philosophy: 
  • We must become profoundly aware that we humans are an animal species which can be easily classified (Class: Mammals, Order: Primates). We are like a kind of cell in an organism, which is the Ecosphere or Earth. Therefore, the first value must be the good health of the entire organism;
  • This planet can support a maximum of 2 or 3 billion humans that are mostly vegetarians like the other primates, and with a level of consumpt...

Change The World Without Taking Power but with the Creation of Natural Carbon Sinks

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Monday, July 22, 2019, In : Re-embodiments politics 

I once read a Marxist book -and wrote a review thereof- entitled 'Change the World without Taking Power'. I guess the motto resonates with many of us in the altermondialiste movement. It's my belief that fulfilling the remit goes, to a large extent, by way of creating natural carbon sinks thereby sequestering carbon so that the latter becomes a dynamic of fertility and it's stropped from its performance as a global warmer and climate changer.  

In this succinct video (follow-up video,...

Sikkim: the First and Only Fully Organic State in India

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Friday, July 27, 2018, In : going organic 
Sikkim is the first and only fully organic state of India. From adopting new farming practices to harvesting low yields initially and farmers having to come up against losses, it took 13 difficult years for the second-smallest state of India to achieve this feat. Today, showers of accolades have been pouring in from all over the world. Here are some of the sought-after organic products you can find in Sikkim

Industrial Agriculture is the Major Cause of Climate Forcing

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Friday, June 29, 2018, In : Relevant literature 

1% For The Planet–a global network of businesses, nonprofits and individuals working together for a healthy planet–recently collaborated with The Carbon Underground to create a hypothetical quiz about the primary cause of climate change:

“If we asked 1,000 members of 1% for the Planet to name the cause of climate change, and you responded the way most people do, about 950 of you would say it’s the burning of fossil fuels.

And you’d be wrong.

If we asked the same group whether reducing ...
