a long nowhere

Rewiring Haiti:

  1. Haiti, in all its deforested, polluted, cartel-corrupted, disease-riddled impoverishment, is a vision of our planet’s future if we continue to devour natural resources beyond replenishment, downplay the seriousness of climate change, spike efforts at family planning and ignore the integral importance of environmental health. As goes Haiti, so go we all.
  2. Haiti has been teetering at brink of breakdown for as long as anyone can remember…
  3. Practically every medical problem in Haiti is poverty-related. The never-ending cycle of deforestation lead(s) to more ecological damage, more compromised farming, more poverty and more hunger. It goes on and on and on. We can go on giving health-care forever – It would never really touch even the brim of the problem here.
