"IMHO, this is a very thought-provoking talk by George Monbiot, especially the part about "the restoration story." An hour seemed to me like a lot of time to invest, but it turned out to be well worth it.

Solidarity,

The small Mexican town of Temaca has become a beacon in the global movement to democratize water and energy management. CARLOS SÁNCHEZ PIMIENTA VIA FLICKR

It’S 9 A.M. and a grey cloud that had been shrouding one of four mountains surrounding Temacapulín, in the highlands of western Mexico, has begun to lift. “SINCE THE SIXTH CENTURY, TEMACAPULÍN WELCOMES YOU.” The bold white letters emblazoned on the side of one of the mountains, Cerro de la Cruz, emerge through the mist, Hollywood-style, as the town’s inhabitants scurry to live up to the promise. It’s the first day of the Tenth Annual Chile de Arból Fair and a steady rain has been threatening to flood the town’s two-day festival of resistance against a mega-dam project nearby.
