Two rivers drain into Swansea Bay, the Tawe and the Nedd, and for several years there have been dreams to build a tidal lagoon between them  on Dylan Thomas’ ‘long and splendid curving shore.’

The original plan envisaged a huge nine kilometre wall build with sand-filled, synthetic bags, faced with stone and a series of turbines to generate power embedded into it.  Oyster beds and yacht clubs were planned within its span and it would have served as a prototype that could be replicated on many sites around the British coast.

For over a decade medics and bacteriologists have been issuing dire warnings that science is losing the race with ever evolving bugs. Antibiotics, over prescribed to humans and overused in animal husbandry, will lose their efficacy sooner rather than later.
The result, they warn, will be that simple surgical procedures will become a life or death lottery against infection. Untreatable sepsis will become commonplace and millions will die.

Over the past three years Bohemianmojo has consistently argued the most prominent so-called sustainable solutions to the planet’s problems are not really sustainable at all. Rather, we believe, they are virtue signalling by big business, which has the resources and personnel to identify the next popular wave out in the set of trends and ride it.

For a couple of years or so we at Bohemianmojo have been discussing our reservations about so-called sustainable wind power and solar energy. We are huge fans of any well thought out efforts to harness offshore tidal or wave power. But we have been very suspicious about the much-vaunted green credentials of the other two although decided not to give it voice while the jury was still out.

We’ll talk about wind power in a future posting but a couple of disturbing dispatches about solar energy have prompted this report. The first is a stark warning from the Chinese authorities on the truly gigantic pollution penalty from solar arrays once they fall out of use.

If you are one of those people who ends the day with a sigh, an ever burgeoning to-do list, and a bewildering feeling that time has accelerated beyond your comprehension then this article is for you. It's all about TIME and why it flies. Some argue that time is simply a construct of the civilized world and ultimately has no influence on your general health or well-being. On the other hand there are those who argue that time is indeed accelerating as our planetary orbit shifts alignment with the Cosmos. Perhaps both theories are true, all I know is that lately time has become a MAJOR topic of conversation with clients, friends, and loved ones.

There are many things happening in the industrialized world that give one pause and inspire a deeper look at just what exactly humankind is evolving into. One thing I love about BohemianMojo, if I do say so myself, is our ability to look at many sides of a concept and connect the dots between the progressive possibilities and tried and true traditional wisdom.

This latest topic, however, is one that pulls at the very core of my being with little room to find positive outcome. Sadly, it’s also a topic that is sliding pretty much under the radar as the media chooses to focus your attention on other topics that may or may not be as impacting over the long term for humankind.

What could possibly be so dire, you ask?
