I Still Want to Save the Human Race.

And it Just Became Easier.

People will quibble and propose solutions, but the sheer hubris that is endemic to man will prevent any meaningful change. Industrial-scale extraction and exploitation will end, yes — when the populace stops breathing. Well, I’d hope the extractors would expire too and stop burning oil and gas.

I’m giving my project a ‘go.’ As I’ve said, it just became easier. Why? Well, if it’s end of days for me and everybody, what in the world is there to lose?

This Article is not an Article. It’s actually a Plea for Help.

I’ve run out of aspirin. I’m broke. I eat 8,000 calories a day when I write. I’ve eaten all the protein (chicken, eggs, milk) that were supposed to last me all month. In the past 5 days!

I still desperately want to build a solar village here in Panama. I’m encouraged because one supporter just sent $100 to my Panamanian partner, Julio Rodriguez. (Thank you, * * * * * ). It was an easy process; either Western Union or direct deposit to Julio’s (and my) Panamanian bank will work. I’m beyond embarrassment. Can you help? Financially or otherwise?
