My name is Daniel Kinch. I also answer to Dan as well as a variety of other names (sometimes to ‘Jerry’). I studied acting in college at University of South Florida (and afterwards), but my interest is (and always was) in writing plays–I studied with the late great Jack Gelber at Brooklyn College. I’ve written lots of […]

Are any of you seeing lots of these ads? If you spend time online or waiting to buy groceries at Walgreens, or you watch a lot of NBC TV, you’re getting bombarded. Walgreens, NBC and Comic Relief are all onboard for this charity event, ostensibly to benefit poor children in the US (there’s also mention of […]

Remember that anything below 150,000 new jobs […]

But there was almost no reporting on what 400 ppm of carbon means to the atmosphere–or prospects for continued life on the planet. The […]

The story has recently broken through the MSM that we’ve reached 400 parts Per Million of carbon dioxide in Mister atmosphere. The thing we breathe. We’d hit the number before but we hadn’t stayed at it for a month the way we did in April. 400 is the new normal. 350 is so ‘last century’. […]
