Call in to speak with the host
Here is why our live guest Alan Kent Gorg and his wife Gwyn (website)(blog)made the film (YouTube) TECHQUA IKACHI (Land and Life). Alan has produced a new film "Prophecy and Pollution."
In 1969 Hopi elders in Hotevilla in northern Arizona were protesting against mining and oil drilling on their reservation. Their ancient prophecy foretold disaster, and they asked for a film.
I was on their side in resisting exploitation and pollution of their land but thought their prophecy of widespread disaster to be a desperate tactic and wild exaggeration. That was before anyone had heard of carbon or global warming. Now, forty years later, I have seen that prophecy coming true, and verified by the leading scientists of the world, and I see that I have been acting as a channel to spread that prophecy.
But the film, like the elders themselves, has been crying in the wind. People and politicians give lip service but seek alternative energy sources so we can all keep on doing what we have been doing, just minus the carbon. The Hopi prophecy says that will not work, that only a simpler life will save civilization, but consumer capitalism says no. The catastrophe is still on track because the worst will not fall on us, but on a future generation, as the change demanded is too much.
Pity our grandchildren!!!
It's good to talk.
