The Emergent Future

Over the weekend, I produced this earth heart video to help communicate the importance of an integrated approach to providing energy and intelligence in powering our civilization. I call it the Unified Energy System.

I had downloaded a new program that allowed me to produce outside of the studio that I had been using for the other earth hearts; so, I decided to give it a whirl in my bedroom.  Consequently, the lighting is definitely down home.

It was an experiment.



While working on it, I came up with The Emergent Future meme.

It might become the name of the book I've been working on.

Climate Changes, Truth does not.





This week, we watched and listened as the "Minority" who currently control the government of the People  of the USSA roll back our protections and our plans in the global fight against Climate Change.

The ignorance of it all will go down in history, not as stupid, but as willful endangerment.

Thankfully, Al Gore is back with a sequel of his award winning Inconvenient Truth.  It's called an Inconvenient Sequel and it opens in late July.

"A decade after AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH brought climate change into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes – in moments both private and public, funny and poignant -- as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion."

This new sequel is directed by Jon Shenk and Bonni Cohen.


Here's the trailer and it's a real barn burner:



Sometimes it takes a valley to see the mountain of hope.

Kellyanne Con Job

Charlie Loving, cartoonist and political soothsayer, is at it again.

When I mentioned Kellyanne Con Job, he rewarded me with an immediate cartoon.



He followed up with  this wonderful statement about the "beautiful wall" that would destroy the border as we know it. I guess those who want the wall on the border have never been there.








































And here is Kellyanne Con Job with King Con himself.





































And it is true.... like the story we thought was so ridiculous as children

King Con is indeed very naked.

Because the Emperor's Court is blinded and intoxicated by Power.

Our World Tower

Less than a month before the Russian hijacking of the American election, we visited upper New York State and then we went down the Hudson to the City.  At the time, it seemed impossible that the world would be hurling towards the warped political space we are about to enter.

Oddly, as we walked down Fifth Avenue, we saw Drumph and his black caravan of SUV's arrive at his own Tower.  At the time, he was mired in his own taped and documented ocean of character flaw and his path to the White House was more a crack.

Here is our video from this happier and less dangerous time:




And here is the video we shot six years earlier:



I actually like tall buildings.  I get some kind of satisfaction from them.

But to make a big building maker the leader of the free world?

That's as dumb as making the largest oil company in the world,

our state department.

Our new One World Tower

looks more like Our World Tower.

Earth Heart




Well today is the day that the electors make it official.

It's D day.  (Drumph Day)

And I thought it might be good to go on and post a  Beta version of a five minute TV show we've been working on.

It's called earth heart and I plan to get them out over the course of the next year.  They won't all be like this.  Some will have guests, some will be out in the field.  But many will be produced at my new studio, Studio Hope.

The idea is to keep them short and to the point.

I've also produced one on The Reality of Climate Change and its solution.

Potluck Internet





















Part of our primate/hunter-gatherer heritage is to sit around and share food, preferably with some small children running around.

It's not just the calories It's the social energy, as essential to our health as sleep and exercise. These gatherings should never be confused with work where food is present, such as a lecture, meeting or group work sessions.

Feeling depressed about current events?

Plan on regular get together's with like minded family, friends and neighbors: lunches, potlucks and even Tuesday night dinners. Schedule these islands of respite, warmth, sanity and love into your life now.

Remember, some of the best ideas are famously drawn on napkins or start as joking conversation.

Suggestion: Keep these regular and informal gatherings entirely off line. They may become so very important in the future.

Let us remember the wisdom that we have learned from South Park.

"There's no internet to find out why there's no internet!"

Groups of kind people sharing may become our only reliable internet.

The Death of A Nation





















I woke up in the middle of the night.

There was this terrible feeling...no surely it was a dream.

It wouldn't go away.

I went back to sleep.   But when I awoke at six, it was still there. The radio went on.  And it went on and on.  And on and on. I could no longer act as if my mind was playing tricks with me. For it was hearing the death of a nation. (listen)


Donald J Trump had been elected president.

This nation's first woman president would not be....Not for now.

We had been at a poll watching party where we had watched Obama win twice. Having checked out the exit polls in the afternoon, a Clinton victory seemed imminent. And then the night turned black.

But alas, even as Hillary builds her popular vote lead to 2 million votes, 110,000 votes in the blue neck woods behind the Blue Wall in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan succumbed to white male identity politics and flipped the electoral college on its head.

To follow the first black president with the first female president was a bridge too far.

Consider this from Bill Moyers and Company:

By Tamara Draut

"Resentment won this election. It was a middle-finger, throw-caution-to-the-wind, damn-the-consequences vote — cast overwhelmingly by white people.

Only white people had the luxury and the safety to ignore Trump’s promises to restore law and order, to deport millions of immigrants and to endanger Americans who practice the world’s second most popular religion. His phony economic populism was the icing on the cake — the cherry on top of the dog-whistle sundae. It was not the driving motivation behind Trump voters.

A quarter of Trump voters said he was not qualified to be president, yet still voted for him to lead the country. Trump was as likely to win affluent voters — individuals making more than $100,000 — as Clinton. This wasn’t a working-class revolt.

It was a white revolt."

And as of today, all of Trump's appointments have been white males.

Meanwhile the man who never settles, settles his Trump University lawsuits for 25 million. And today, he  admits that he used his foundation illegally to pay off other law suits as well as support the criminal antics of James O 'Keefe's Project Veritas.

November 22 has been a big day of sadness for over 50 years. Black Tuesday 2016 will no doubt rank in that pantheon of troubles.

It is the Death of a Nation.

And this time, it won't be East Timor. It will be the east sides everywhere.

Trump's offenses to the Republic will be legend by the time he is finished.

On the less than black side, this victory will galvanize those of heart who aren't going to take it.  It will bring about real and formidable resistance to the autocratic alt-right government that is hatching in the towers  of our own Gotham City.

Most importantly,  it might even bring us to understand that we must soon reconsider the mind form of the nationstate,  and instead use our advanced communication tools to create new inventions of social contract that transcend the geographic state.

These cybercoops or cyberstates will bring humankind to higher levels of cooperation and understanding.

And it will bring us comfort.

"I followed his shadow right out of the bar
And we talked all night 'neath the light of the stars
He said, "This used to be a cradle of civilization
Now look what they've done: it's the death of a nation."

Ian Hunter
