Janaia’s the guest this time! She tells host Ivey Cone: “This is not a problem. A problem can be solved. This is a predicament. We can’t solve our way out of this one, with technology or any other mythic fix. It’s something we have to live with.”
She sees multiple collapses happening simultaneously: the American empire, industrial civilization, and planetary ecosystems – especially rapidly accelerating climate change. After sharing a few ideas on how we might respond personally, she closes with heartfelt tips from the author of “Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty.” Episode 235. [peakmoment.tv]
The art in the background is Janaia’s “We Live Here?” an expression of awe at witnessing a rare circumzenithal arc and sundogs in the Lone Bobcat Woods Meadow in October 2002. See also We Live Here? – My painting in an international show.
