December 5, 2013. May perpetual light shine upon you.
While the United States’ congressional machinery was busy shoveling sugar into its own gas tank last month, politicians in Germany pressed forward on their ambitious drive for sustainability.

Stubborn as a mule
There is often truth to be found in many old tall tales and wise sayings. In this case, it’s just plain true. I cannot count the number of times we encountered a mule or donkey standing in the middle of the road, ignoring the frantic honking as our jeep rapidly approached.
And oh the stupidity of goats and sheep. Let’s say you’re a sheep. You’re quietly walking along the side of the road with your herd and your master and suddenly you hear a large vehicle approaching from behind. What do you do? Well, if you are like the idiotic goats and sheep we encountered (remember at this time you are on the side of the road, not in the path of the vehicle) you get really nervous, look all around to consider your possible paths of escape and you run straight into the road in front of the jeep. And because your herd is also comprised of idiots, they all follow you.
I fully trusted in the maneuvers and skills of our driver Zinabu, but I cursed several four-footed mammals on our field trip into the bush. I think they all secretly know there is a law in Ethiopia that entitles an owner to full compensation of their livestock if a vehicle should hit and injure one.
I love me some Ethiopian donkeys.

98% of the old growth forests are gone. 99% of of the prairies are gone. 80% of the rivers on this planet do not support life anymore. We are out of species, we are out soil, and we are out of time. And what we are being told by most of the environmental movement is that the way to stop all of this is through personal consumer choices. It’s time for a real strategy that can win.
