Essentially nothing is being said.
Think Irish Potato Famine..
1845 - 1852
One million people starved to death..
Could it be that nobody knows.
That somehow this very important message is being missed.
We have never had seven and a half billion people on the planet earth before..
Estimates for the population of what we call The United States in 1492 were from two million people to eighteen million people.
The highest estimates for all of North and South America are about one hundred million in all.
Fifty million is probably more accurate..
One half of one billion people planet earth in 1500.
Five hundred million..
Einstein said you got to be able to do the numbers to grasp whats going on..
Try grasping one billion people.
Twice the population of the planet earth when Columbus came to America.
Now take what it takes to feed and clothe and shelter one billion people..
Now add one more..
Don't plan vast projects with half vast plans..
My mothers sister gave her a little carved plaque with this saying on it when we were at the ocean in about 1952.
Damp and cold and wet with the wind blowing wet and cold and eating sand in our food.
It was cold and wet and full of sand but it was a great trip in reality..
I was seven years old..
Maybe only five or six years old..
I came to love the Ocean..
Western Washington State..
Copalis and Westport and La Push..
West of Seattle and Puget Sound about one hundred miles..
Ocean Ships sail into Seattle and Puget Sound Harbors..
I lived and worked right there..
I got salt in my bones..
Clams and fishing and camping and surf..
Good weather and bad weather..
Ocean fishing and clam digging..
My uncle owned a resort at La Push..
Taking trips to the ocean and fishing and camping was just something we did..
