The May episode of Nature Bats Last featuring an interview with Sandra Kahn and Paul R. Ehrlich is embedded here:
“There’s a silent epidemic in western civilization, and it is right under our noses. Our jaws are getting smaller and our teeth crooked and crowded, creating not only aesthetic challenges but also difficulties with breathing. Modern orthodontics has persuaded us that braces and oral devices can correct these problems. While teeth can certainly be straightened, what about the underlying causes of this rapid shift in oral evolution and the health risks posed by obstructed airways?”
“Sandra Kahn and Paul R. Ehrlich, a pioneering orthodontist and a world-renowned evolutionist, respectively, present the biological, dietary, and cultural changes that have driven us toward this major health challenge. They propose simple adjustments that can alleviate this developing crisis, as well as a major alternative to orthodontics that promises more significant long-term relief. Jaws will change your life. Every parent should read this book.”
Dr Sandra Kahn, Professor Paul Ehr and Kevin Hester discussed the ongoing extinction crisis and I quoted the recent article in The Guardian titled: ‘We’re doomed’ : Mayer Hillman on the climate reality no one else will dare mention.
“Without hope, goes the truism, we will give up. And yet optimism about the future is wishful thinking, says Hillman. He believes that accepting that our civilisation is doomed could make humanity rather like an individual who recognises he is terminally ill. Such people rarely go on a disastrous binge; instead, they do all they can to prolong their lives.”
Guilt tripping young people that they have to fix the unfixable is unconscionable.
As long as the military industrial complex rages around the planet all the squirly light bulbs, solar panels and wind farms on the planet count for nought.
Let’s not be the last generation of elder to lie to the youth about the severity of the multitude of exestential crisis they face.
