In this podcast Wolfgang and I discuss the dire situation us Sapiens have created on the only liveable planet we know of.
Check the embedded links including the one about the 34 nuclear plants in danger of up stream dam failures and the issue of tipping points we have crossed and how exponential unraveling will change the face of the earth much faster than we are being told.
We’d also like feedback on us continuing with this joint project.
The entire narrative around abrupt climate change is being controlled in the MSM where it is implied that most of the worst consequences are far off in the future when in reality the biosphere is unraveling as we speak.
Your discussion of water reminded me of Suzuki’s “The Sacred Balance”. Chapter 3 The Oceans flowing through our veins. ” Life is animated water” – The evolution of the biosphere.
Very interesting talk hope you continue with more! 🙂

“The paper’s lead author, Dr Henry Adams at Oklahoma State University explains that 99 percent of the water moving through a tree is used to keep stomata open, the pores that let in carbon dioxide, allowing it to carry out photosynthesis.
Trees respond to the stress of drought by closing those pores that let in carbon dioxide. At that point, they need to rely on their stored sugars and starches to stay alive, and could die from carbon starvation if they run out before the drought is over.
On the other hand, if the tree loses too much water too quickly, an air bubble (embolism) will form and the tree has hydraulic failure, it cannot transport water from the roots to the leaves, which becomes lethal as the whole tree dries out.”

“So at the same time as severe water shortages pitch Syrian refugees and Jordanians into conflict with each other, particularly around Ramtha in the north, these powerful landowners are guzzling groundwater. “In a country that might run out of water,” says Mohammed Atiyeh, a farmer in the southern Jordan Valley, “there is regulation only for the weak and poor.”
