It's 2020. We live in a diverse planet with caves and bears, icemelt, and tears.
Geologic tears make earthquakes and faults and sinking valleys; volcanic pyroclastics, too (Mauna Kea has an astoningishly long history).
Energies of weathering storms also provide warnings and cause break-downs into various granularities; not all of them good:
A tumbleweed tornado, for example, recently displayed as a literal tornado of radioactive waste toxicity near Hanover.
"Strontium is chemically similar to calcium, and plants take it up readily thinking it's a vital nutrient. Cesium goes into plant roots along metabolic pathways generally used for taking potassium from the soil. Russian thistle is an avid extractor of nutrients from arid soils. For 56 years the plants have scrounged all the radioisotopes they can from the hundreds of ground zeros at the Nevada test site. They set seed fortified with strontium 90 and cesium 137. As the seeds ripen the plants wither. They break off at their roots and the wind drives them where it will ..."
And mankind still cannot solve problems caused by money with money.

Melg'puguasit, we stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as a colonized planet continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life.
We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in an Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by Mark Charles, a Navajo Nation member running as an Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls. The Earth does not sustain white supremacists.
