Big news in the world of trees! They’re starting to grow in the once frozen Artic tundra – and what does this have to do with our health? A whole hell of a lot of carbon and methane will be released as the permafrost melts. Who’s gonna help us?… No, not Elon. Not Ellen. And unfortunately, Captain Planet is having creative differences with Wind so he won’t be available. It looks like the Woolly Mammoths have decided to step up! Or rather, a bunch of scientists that clearly rank Jurassic Park as their favorite movie has stepped up. Yes, you heard that correctly, in 2027 there are full plans to reintroduce this megafauna species back into the wild. The first order of business is to send them into Siberia to start knocking trees over to make way for grasslands which sequester a hell of a lot more carbon from the atmosphere than trees do. You can read about the Woolly Mammoth project and other de-extinction projects that are going on right now at Colossal Labritories & Biosciences.
It’s fascinating that there are solutions intertwined in Nature. We’re constantly reminded that the planet has figured out how to rebalance itself. What seems to get in the way: arrogance, bureaucracy, and power struggle. We as humans tend to insert our self-entitled importance above these Laws of Nature. If we can remember this understanding we can look inside our own bodies and see the parallels.
The whole point of this newsletter is to share the phenomena that exists all around us – Life will take care of itself, and flow with Nature instead of manipulating it.
Last thought, Malibu realtors, or for that matter, all waterfront property listers should be sharing part of their sales commissions with these Mammoths. Ancient, fat, and fury elephants are doing just as much work to keep beachfront homes above water just like good general contractors do.
