Everywhere around the world, the locals tell me the weather and environment is changing.
In North-West Australia, "this year wet season didn't really happen" .
In Iran's Baluchistan, my host drove me around villages in the desert. "All this (desert), everywhere, used to be farms! We used to have soo many watermelons! Now, just death. It's why we smugglers" .
In Northern Vietnam, "the weather change. more (crops) die. no (crops), money, problem." .
In Thailand, "it is getting hotter and hotter every year!" .
In the Philippines, 5 of the their 10 worst typhoons have hit since 2006. They are getting more intense every year. .
In Pakistan, there's an acute water shortage. By 2025 the country can be out of water. The introduction of eucalyptus has a role. Those fast growing Australian trees consume 70 liters of water per day. .
In parts of Pakistan, winter has been shortened from 4 to now only 2 months long.
In Europe, the winters and summers have already made enough news.
You think climate change isn't as serious of an issue as you not having your daily 30min long showers? You think using one less plastic bag won't matter? You think solar energy is the answer? There isn't even enough metal underground to build enough solar panels to sustain our needs.
There isn't going to be a new earth that humans will one day invade. There isn't another Australia/ America for you to invade and spread out.
So, do you still need that plastic bag? Wanna shop at a farmer's market instead? instead of buying packaged food? Do you really need to completely redecorate your room every year? Is it that hard giving up products that uses plam oil?
So here's one more for being a brother, a friend, a partner, a pansari hunter, a ritualistic, a wingman, an absolute helping hand and most of all a subject for my photographic experiments.
But I never thanked you for pushing me to my limits on this very adventurous trip where we experienced absolute liberation under the feet of the killer mountain. Truth be told, I would have never made that last climb if it wasn't because of you.
That last climb should be your greatest leason in life. It's in the most difficult climbs, where the mountain steep is just too high but you still somehow find a way to keep moving up. This is your lesson right here. Keep moving forward and that's how wining is done.
I don't need to say much on what you mean to me, you already know that and you know what I mean when I talk about that last climb.
You know man 🙌
You deserved to sleep peacefully in the end but still I was the last man standing. 😛
Happy Birthdayyyy Mr. Shelby 😂
