I first met Baba Brinkman in Lima, Peru at the COP20. In Paris, at COP21 we reconnected and I arranged to have him be part of one of my press conferences, in which he did the Laudato Si rap, which was awesome–loyal and/or long time followers will definitely remember it: ‘Rap Music and Moral Obligation On Climate Matters.
His new album is set to be released September 30th, and he making a pre-release page with four preview tracks available for public streaming at, The Rap Guide to Climate Chaos, by Baba Brinkman (dk: Really, really outstanding. Just REALLY good).
His ‘latest album is now finished, after a marathon seven-month recording and revising process … the results are as epic as the subject’ which ‘the album explores…The Rap Guide to Climate Chaos takes you on an auditory journey through the science, politics, and economics of global warming, looking at it through the eyes of researchers, climate deniers, activists, the Pope, and many perspectives in between’ His ‘goal with this album’ was ‘to alert people to the scale and urgency of the challenge, and also to create a sense of optimism around what we can still do to remedy things’.
Paul is again on Extinction Radio in their second of their newly reinstated series, included with today’s episode featuring Derrick Jensen. His interview resumes with Mike Ferrigan in his sustained role as a ‘Regular Contributor‘ and thus promises to continue.
‘Conversation with Paul Beckwith’, starts at 1:42:26 mark (102:26), by clicking here. About 14:09 long. BTW, our very good friend Peter Melton is also amply featured at the 47:35 mark (about 27:33 long). [dk]
My latest video, ‘Abruptly Shifting Sands of Climate Change’ // Published on Aug 23, 2016
As I trudged across the massive sand dunes in Jockey’s Ridge Park in the Outer Banks, North Carolina, just south of famous Kitty Hawk (location of the first flight) at Kill Devils Hill I thought that I may as well rant on abrupt climate change.
If my verbal tirade is somewhat disjointed and incoherent,then please forgive me. Perhaps it can be attributed to overexposure to sun, wind, heat and sandblasting?
Putting the SUN to bed just south of Avon in The Outer Banks, South Carolina. It was too hot to hold in one hand, so I tried a basketball hold and it got away from me. A special thanks goes to my brilliantly talented photographer Edward…
Along side, another angle on the spectacular sunset.
On the day before WWII ended, a German U-Boat was sunk just off The Outer Banks, North Carolina. This photo shows the salvaged hatch from the sunken sub.
Time to recharge, reflect on the massive shifting sands of time.
Confession. I took this (last) sunset photo exactly one year ago. All others quite recent.
