Irreversible Runaway Abrupt Climate Change Unfolding Now. Not long off in the future.

Originally posted on Kevin Hester:
In the last few days articles have been appearing in the corporate media detailing methane releases in the Arctic with the East Siberian Arctic shelf which is close to many of our hearts and minds due to it’s shallowness and vulnerability to destabilisation of the carbon and methane clathrate reserves…

Intergenerational Climate blame is BS

Lots of blame to go around as the clock ticks down on human Existence. I’ve been around the Millennial generation for awhile. I hung around with the younger people at Occupy Wall Street and stayed friends even after the movement collapsed. I wouldn’t be a Millennial for all the cocaine money in Bogota (Colombia, not […]

Cue the traveling music

When you’ve lost everything, sometimes you need to travel. Hell, when you’re about to lose everything, you need to travel. We’ve all become enamored of changing the scenery over the years.

The Norwegian Blue Society FB page.

It took place in a petshop, and an aggrieved customer showed up with a parrot the shop had sold him even though the parrot was dead. You need to view it […]

New York Sizzles in the Wrong Way

I’ve been trying to put in miles on my bike this summer–at least 50 miles per week, and more if I don’t have gigs in the offiing. But this weekend, not so much. The temperatures anticipated for NYC (and most of the eastern part of the US) are in the wet bulb range. I’ve tried […]
