“The era of preservation is over. There aren’t enough old growth habitats left to preserve. We’re entering the Millennium of Restoration. We’ve got to rebuild with the best we’ve got ….” David Milarch

The Man From Copemish

The anthropocene 
slides to chthulucene,
the mad max bizzarro,
came the man from heaven,
back from the dead 
to forsaken Copemish
without a dollar only 
a penny for his thoughts,
he's on a mission with
sequoias and cloning,
stemming the end one
tube stock at a time.
He's no sophisticated 
eco-guerrilla guy,
just a back blocks bloke
with an edgy idea that 
just might save the world
one carbon particle at a time.

Note: David Milarch and his son Jake have successfully cloned ancient Sequoia and have also successfully planted them, and are doing so around the world. Sequoia are the worlds largest living thing, and are a major source of carbon exchange. They grow fast which is a huge benefit. David set up the Archangel Tree Project to collect and protect ancient trees. David is known as the Tree Prophet which is also the title of a short documentary about him by Christian Scheider available on Vimeo. David took on this challenge as the result of a near death experience and receiving a message to come back and do this work. Fascinating. We need more odd and edgy people to get on with it.
