Potpourri Pan America: World Climate Conference in Bolivia –Amerindians/indigenous demand attention / Movie-maker James Cameron and Belo Monte in Brazil….. And Weed America…


Several highlights:

1.  During April 21-23, Bolivian President Evo Morales hosts the first world (Bolivian Climate Summit) conference in South America to save the planet and apparently plans to put on notice the major industrialized nations of the world that the Amerindians of the continent and the indigenous people of the world intend to have a major say in any future world climate regulations…

2.  hotel problems: Killings in Monterrey, Mexico target the tourist and business traveler… The violence of the drug trade corridor to the USA is severely damaging Mexican society.  Are people too busy voting to legalize street-drugs (Weed America) to hear the carnage next door?

3.  South American WildLife is varied and interesting… And the site provides links to other interesting pages, worth keeping in one’s digital library…

4.  A new hydroelectric Brazilian dam named Belo Monte, when finished will be the world’s 3rd largest, but the indigenous people of Brazil complain that their lands will be underwater, thereby displacing approximately 40,000 Amerindians and killing countless rare plants, trees, insects, birds and animals once the Xingu River is dammed  — US movie director James Cameron offers moral support to the Amerindians…  Progress, progress…

5.  Machu Picchu, the historical city, continues being a major attraction… Detailed information is available at the site.

[PanAm has no connection to the sites other than finding them interesting]
