Jesus Peralta, ARTI (American Rescue Team International) Director of Peru is opening a Training Center in Lima, Peru. This Institute will train rescue teams and organizations from throughout Latin America in many types of rescue and in the ‘Triangle Of Life’.
Please read my previous blogs concerning Jesus Peralta and watch my supportive video.
Jesus is a very fine and outstanding person who has my complete support, in every thing he does.
The Importance of Now
Climate Change has had a severe negative effect on the traditional, current and ancient Highland Agricultural Areas of Peru. Climate Change has caused an unprecedented drought resulting in the agricultural areas of the Incas to go dead. Very little food or none is being produced. These ancient communities are being abandoned because the people cannot produce enough food to survive.
The Massive El Nino of 2015 and 2016
Yes, there will be welcome rainfall and there will be many floods, mudslides; causing predictable deaths. The Highlands will welcome the water; however, the drought dry soil of climate change will not be able to absorb the excess water; as it would have prior to Climate Change. This will result in many more landslides, mudslides and the dreaded ‘Derummbes’ which cause the the landslides to become super charged, bringing down trees and boulders at incredible speeds and traveling for incredible distances. These events were witnessed, by me, in the previous El Nino. I visited 3 places that no longer existed. Derummbes ‘wiped them from the earth’. One of the most amazing experiences that I ever encountered in my 100+ major disaster experiences. I had gone to idealic, beautiful spots; before, El Nino. Afterwards, I went to rescue. There was no rescue. These ‘places’ ceased to exist. No trace remained, of any kind.
This will be an incentive for support, for the much needed Rescue/Disaster Training Institute.
“Warning systems allow farmers time to leave some of their land fallow so that in a flood event water can be directed there and stored away from more valuable crops. Areas that are normally too dry for cultivation can be seeded in advance of El Niño events to make the best use of the increased rainfall and fishermen can change their netting practices to target shellfish, and fish that flourish in warmer waters such as mahi-mahi and tuna.”
Jesus Peralta and his com-padres had perfect timing, for the Institute. It was never so needed…as NOW!
