They won’t tell us: ‘Crazy’ NTHE allegations

I’ve delayed posting this for over a week now. I’m still not sure I should. As all of you who’ve been paying attention might have noticed, I’m a reluctant convert to the idea that humanity has already passed all the tipping points on mitigating the damage we’ve done to the earth. I know this is […]

Where the Hell did I go?

Sorry, it’s been a really tough Holiday season and I have not much to tell you that will warm the cockles of your heart.

I don’t know whether to be relieved or saddened that many of the information dumps coming out of the COP21 Paris meeting are confirming the […]

Thank you, Donald Trump

I’ve noticed a big drop off in one sort of Facebook meme lately. Although lefty and progressive people are still posting funny videos of presidential candidate (and continued GOP front-runner) Donald Trump, these have been replaced in large part by serious, sober-sounding analysis of what to do if he becomes the GOP presidential candidate. Specifically, people […]
