I am wondering this morning after opening up the front page of the New York Times newspaper and seeing this advertisement for IBM’s Watson AI platform to what extent will people be able to control their own resources from renewable resources? The key seems to be land and wind and solar energy are in abundance and free. It would be interesting to try to follow the lessons in this YouTube video to create a set of graphics for an article about helping people learn how to harness the data on solar and wind energy fluxes to plan renewable energy development and make forecasts for with the aim of maximizing the quantity of people that can be helped by efforts in training. I am really interested in learning about the culture of the Lakota Sioux this week in an effort to help them. In this regard, today I am working on writing a nice email message to Trees, Water, People. I want to just listen and learn for a while as a volunteer with their work. I have an old climbing friend in Fort Collins who I wrote yesterday. This whole path captured in the last blog post has got me excited about getting outside and working hard physically again. I cannot want to run today and workout in preparation for climbing again soon. I want to help Native people globally protect their land from global satellite surveillance and help them make decisions. This is a really cool path and exciting.
Poet: Data, Climate Change, the West, and the Islamic World
Dr. William Kaya Erbil
I make money any way I can to finish a book of poetry on climate change, the West, and the Islamic World. Been working on this book for eight years. Features a raw and gritty personal story of mental illness. The book explores themes around religion, and tries to place a framework around the current War on Terror/global Islamic fundamentalist jihad. Relates technology and weapons of war to their basic scientific origin, digging deeper to find their mythological sources. Ending with a 500 year time travel journey to illuminate the public on the Islamic origin of Copernicus’s discovery, Arabic language semantics are explored to ask why the West gained a 500 year dominance. Back to 2017, faced with the existential dilemma of climate changed induced geopolitical apocalypse I will compare Islamic finance to Western capitalism and prove it to be superior as a framework for modern ecological economic. All these poems point back to the fight between Ishmael and Isaac. They both will realize that perhaps Ruth or Mary were the ones we should have written more about…
