In recent weeks, several videos on social media in Peru have shown migrants being assaulted, threatened or har...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

Regardless of the source, being left or right biased, the content of that VC article regarding the PR machine behind Greta, at least portions of it, do stand on their own.

Re: Wood burning for heat - what is needed to make it unnecessary?

Well any kind of free money, subsidy, incentive will certainly appeal to the psyche To clarify it's not that I'm advocating for some kind of socialist free money intervention, but if it comes down to spending x amount of dollars on some token electric buses from China I'd rather see that money goin...

Re: Wood burning for heat - what is needed to make it unnecessary?

Agreed on the paraffin/kerosene...its terrible awful and very bad for all the reasons you mention. I've had people tell me how they got free from wood heating and started using kerosene toyotomis in their house. I was stupid enough to buy one of theirs when they left chile and now it just sits in t...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

Gloria, love your semi-new signature "I sayeth as I seeth." In prehistoric times aka 60 years ago, baseball umpires used a similar saying. The phrase comes from a story about an argument between three umpires. The first umpire says, "I calls 'em like I sees 'em." The second one says, "I calls 'em li...

Re: 6.1 los lagos, 5.4 coqimbo quake

When I arrived at the border the personnel at Aduana de Chile, SAG and PDI were all very calmly drinking mate like nothing unusual had just happened.
